Excellent Seafood Choices

An intimate setting, this place features really nice seafood dishes along with traditional Tuscan meat and pasta entrees. We enjoyed some of each on a cold night among a crowd that featured people from around the town and around the world. Reservations are strongly suggested. Great place.

Enjoyed a delicious meal here. Make a reservation early in the day as they were full the first time we tried to dine there.

Enjoyed two different dinners during a week stay in montepulciano. Fish and seafood were specialities and all well prepared. Not fancy but wonderful tastes and cooked excellently. Service was friendly and prompt Prices very reasonable and ample portions. No cover charge. Reservations smart.

Wonderful food; my first course was lasagne and it had a little bit of cured ham. Then I ordered steak and the flavour was amazing. We shared a panacotta which was very nice. The place is very cosy and the staff is friendly. Finally good value for money

Staying in Montepulciano was wonderful, and this restaurant was magic. We ate here twice, and both times the food was outstanding. Great service and always with a smile. The cheesecake with fresh fruit, is a must to try. If you are in Montepulciano, do not miss eating here

La Pentolaccia has two menus -- one with all of the good, traditional, inland Tuscan specialties, and another one with a very interesting selection of seafood dishes (equally simple and hearty, however). I had a zuppetta with baby octopus and kale, with oil and toast-- then the tagliatelle con fungi porcini. Great and uncommon wine selection, lots of stuff you... More

We ate at this restaurant 2 of our four nights. the menu was varied and all was delicious. Truffles were a mainstay and all applications seemed unique and well prepared. The manager was quite friendly and particularly helpful with a modestly priced wine list of local wines.
