Fish is their speciality

Very small - holds about 20 people and specializes in fish. We waited 3 days to get a spot and the food was delicious.

Roberto, owner of La Terrazza di Montepulciano, recommended this place for our pranzo in Montepulciano and we were not disappointed. Inventive and delicious food served with pride and pleasure by the staff. Would love to eat here again sometime.

We returned to Montepulciano because of our fantastic experiences last year and were not disappointed, there are so many outstanding places to eat. We returned to la Pentolaccia for its charm, outstanding service, incredible value for money, but most of all for the way they cook fish. Not always easy to find in this area but an outstanding alternative to... More

I was also surprised about white wine... More

We asked a local for a recommendation and she sent us to La Pentolaccia. I am a vegetarian and it's hard to please me in a restaurant sometimes. There were several things to choose from on the menu. I had a lovely ribollita soup and a polenta appetizer. Both were spectacular. I would go there again in a flash. There... More

We dined at this lovely little restaurant last week and had a wonderful meal. It is run by two sisters who care about the quality of the food and the service that the patrons receive. Both were outstanding. Several locals were in the restaurant so you know it had to be good.

Quiet restaurant where you can sit outside. Simple, classic, amazing food. We could have eaten here every night. Amazing wine. Run by a precious, hospitable family.

The proprietor of our B & B recommended this restaurant as it is his favorite among the many, many available in town. This must be the favorite of others too as it was always busy - get there when they open. It became our favorite too as we ate there twice. Our party of four all tried different items each... More

It's quite a small restaurant and that's already one of its advantages. Food is good and service very kind.
