Description: Ristorante tipico toscano a gestione familiare, siamo in Via delle Cantine, una delle vie più caratteristiche di Montepulciano. Alfredo e Andrea vi aspettano per darvi un assaggio di vera Toscana e soprattutto di tradizione Poliziana. Le nostre specialità sono: il Briciolone, un antipasto misto che ormai ha conquistato migliaia di cuori. I Pici: gli spaghettoni fatti a mano con acqua e farina da fare alla Briciole, Aglione, Ragù o al Cocciaccio (un ragù di carne di maiale speziato). Non dimentichiamo i secondi piatti della tradizione, una Trippa alla toscanaccia, il Peposo, le tagliate e la regina della brace: la bistecca alla Fiorentina. Vi aspettiamo con una bella scelta di vini con priorità assoluta su Montepulciano e le piccole aziende del territorio italiano.

We had lunch here and received excellent attentive service from a friendly waiter. The food was tasty and we were recommended a wine other than one from Montepulciano which made a change. There appeared to be locals eating there - always a good sign!

We had delicious dinner and enjoyed friendly chat with Andrea, the owner of La Briciola. Try Fiorentina Biefstuk and house wine. Thanks again!

We ate there tonight. Got pici with ragout, ribollita, and ordered fiorentina steak. Waiter said,that it will be one kilo- costs of 40 euro. When he came with steak,could anybody see,that it wasnt 1 kilo! Such a disappointment. And another joke- roastet potatoes ( sidedish) was from freedge!

In the past 12 years I've bene often in Montepulciano for work but I never ate here before .... I totally regret it! The atmosphere is very nice inside, the restaurant is located in a little side street along the main trail. Being the last day of the year for lunch I decided to have only one course, fantastic tagliata (sliced t bone steak) with roasted potatoes. Delicious! They mostly serve Tuscan classics but why change when it's so good?!
And honest prices!

We had a wonderful meal at La Bricola. As previous posts have said the menu is only in Italian but we loved the experience of working out what to have. We had wonderful pasta with amazing sauces. Don't miss dessert, and go with your waiters recommendations. They also have an extensive wine list showcasing Montepulciano wine, even people who don't drink red will love it! We had excellent service from our waiter (also a sommelier) who recognised us from a wine tasting evening the night before. Definitely worth a visit for dinner.
