It's difficult to get a bad meal in Tuscany, but Pulcino managed it.
The Pici Pasta was overcooked and tasteless, the starter of assorted local meats had come straight from the fridge and were too cold to taste. The restaurant was freezing Nd I was served by a woman with a coat, hat and scarf on.
The wine I was served came out of a bottle marked Chianti, but it tasted nothing like any Chianti I'd ever tasted before.
The whole experience was awful, avoid like the plague.

We were referred here by a wine shop in Montepulciano. Family run and very friendly and warm. Food is not great quality for the price. Much better food quality elsewhere around the area. They did have a wine cellar where we were allowed to look at all of the Etruscan wine jars and an Etruscan mask. Don't bother eating here!

Waste of time and money - overpriced and food was just poor. Tasted like it was reheated in a microwave from yesterday. Wine - average.
The only dish that was tasty - pork braciole (pork cutlet)

Their pasta with ragu was fantastic. There is also a small store within the restaurant to purchase wine, biscotti....

Tasty, but overpriced food, snobby atmosphere. For instance , a glass of Prosecco is not available, only if you by a bottle.
So many good alternatives in the neighbourhood !
