We dined here twice and both times were impressed by chef and staff which were welcoming and professional at all times to us. Food is limited as they do one menu but at least the quality does not suffer for this and was the same both nights we visited. They do not speak a lot of English but we managed... More

La Mangiatoia fits in perfectly with the village of Orciatico. You feel that it might not exist without the tourist trade but visit it and it gives a perfect taste of Italy. The choice is limited to what is on the set menu (excellent value at twenty euros) but is cooked fresh and to order. However, that said we revisited... More

In this very picturesque Italian village, La Mangiatoia was the cherry on the cake. It's a family-run restaurant (the son who waited on us the 4 times we went called through to mama) and even looks stereotypically Italian. The food is simple but very well prepared and is actually the best food me and my parents have ever eaten out.... More

It was great to have dinner in an old cattleshed which was accurately renovated respecting its century-old structures. I retain a pleasant recollection of the resturant "La Mangiatoia", where I was several times during my week-long stay in Orciatico. This resturant is run by a pleasant family and the service, though informal, is attendive and cordial. The choise is not... More

I have spent two weeks in this sweet little village in Tuscany, and it was a delightful experience and everyone was so nice. This is why "La mangiatoia", where we (film and cast crew) were eating every day, cannot get away with their bad behaviour. The food is average, sometimes too salty, often overcooked, the wine is cheap supermarket booze... More

Orciatico is a very small sleepy little village about 20 minutes from Volterra, but this little restaurant was worth going for. Family run, honest Tuscan food at really reasonable prices. Lovely little courtyard/balcony outside. Our first night in Tuscany and one of the most enjoyable

we ate here during a stay in a local agroturismo at the foot of the hill. the food and especially the antipasti were fantastic, the wine plentiful and the atmosphere very friendly. We ate until we could eat no more. would thoroughly recommend a trip here to taste authentic italian food from a very welcoming host. The steak was fantastic.... More

If you want to eat very good, and do not bother with choosing a food from the menu, this is the place to eat. They offer 2 menus. for 20 or 30 € / person (including some local wine). The chef brings you, what they have. You can not choose what you will eat. But everything was so tasty and... More

Had an absolutely delicious meal at La Mangiatoia and at a reasonable price. Max the chef speaks good english and because we were the only ones in the small restaurant, he chatted to us about life in Tuscany and he was so friendly. The restaurant has beautiful brick walls and feels like you have stepped back in time. We stayed... More
