food is good... except service is.. ehm.. non-existing. Got there at around 2pm, waited 5 minutes to get a table while 3 empty ones were free just in front of us. Not a welcome greeting, not a smile or a 'is everything ok?' during the meal, forgot to bring a drink we ordered, and dulcis in fundo: asked for the... More

La Briciola is near the lower Porta to the town close to parking. We went in on a rainy Tuesday night when many other places were closed. We were immediately attended to by the owner and his son who recommended a very fine economical wine. My wife greatly enjoyed her beef slowly simmered in wine, she cannot recall the name... More

The team at La Briciola made us welcome and helped us non-Italian speakers understand what was on offer and it was all delightful. Try the bruschetta. It is an amazing way to start your meal.

Lovely place and very welcoming. Food is 'real' and authentic, with great flavours! Beside the food and the excellent wine list, is a great atmosphere and sincere people! Thank you to your beautiful friendship.

It was a quiet cold night in Montepulciano. Our host recommended this restaurant. Not too many diners when we arrived at 730, but near full by our departure 2 hours later. Our server presented our fine local wine with great flourish, and quickly explained the menu. We had many interesting dishes - including excellent soups, pumpkin tagliatelle, pici with boar... More

We've had the ones with peccorino & pepper , totally yummy! However, if you are very hungry, the portions are rather small, you might want to order some appetisers as well.

La Briciola was recommended to us by our hosts in Montepulciano, and it was indeed an excellent choice, so much so that we went twice for dinner in a four day stay. It is tucked away down an alley to the right as you walk up into the old town, not very far inside the historic gate. It is a... More

Nice niche location in Montepulciano, inside and outside tables, those outside being within some sort of passage between houses. We had pecorino cheese with creams from pears and onions, then typical pici alle briciole and pici with meat sauce, together with a local wine of the house since Montepulciano is highly appreciated for wines, all good. Service fas friendly too,... More
