Located on the Corso, this family-run restaurant features seafood, but also has a broad menu of regional specialties. The chef prides himself on the quality of his food, its preparation and presentation. A few outside picnic-style seats. Colorful decor inside. A favorite spot for locals and visitors alike. Well worth a visit for lunch or dinner.

I had dinner at La Pentolaccia while traveling with my sister, who has been attending a language school in Montepulciano. La Pentolaccia is known to everyone who goes to school there and everyone gives it two thumbs up. The outside seating is very popular because the restaurant is on the main street/hill through town and people watching is at a premium.
I have some food allergies, but it was no problem as everything is made fresh to order. Montepulciano is not on the coast, but the seafood is excellent and fresh. We had starters of octopus salad and squid salad. I had the sea bass with potatoes and tomatoes, she had the pork with prune stuffing. The portions are large so bring a big appetite. We shared a panda cotta with fresh berries for dessert. Fabulous!

Ate here before a concert in the Plaza Grande. We were going to eat in the restaurant next door, but it was full - I'm glad it was - La Pentolaccia was excellent, with lovely food with service to match.

We had a relaxing Sunday lunch here in early June. We opted to try to the cheese sampler plate as an appetizer - and it was wonderful. We had about 6 different cheeses with fresh, raw honey and also a fig marmalade. We sat outside and watched both the locals as well as the tourists walk the main strip.

We went here for dinner on the recommendation from for hotel. The food was quite good, we started with the gnocchi with arugula and the pasta with white truffles. Both were excellent. I had the wild boar cacciatore as a second. It was spicer than I expected, but good none the less. We had deserts of puff pastry with ice cream and strawberries. Also quite nice. The service is what stood out the most though. Very attentive and quick. I didn't have to ask the bill 3 times and then still wait 20 minutes. It came right away without asking.
