Well recommended eatery in the heart of Arezzo

We dined here 2 nights running, showing how pleased we were. Both times we sat outside (funnily enough at the same table), the staff were courteous and friendly and as the porcini mushrooms were the 'specials' of the day, I had those - delicious but a tad salty, my husband went for the steak - all... read more

We happened on this place by chance - it was the only place near the station that was open on a major bank holiday. But it was fantastic food, with cheery, friendly staff (and lots of Italian customers - good sign), and we liked it so much we went back another day. Particularly recommended was the ravioli (either ricotta/spinach or... More

We really loved the food and the service. We had Pici, which is a tuscan pasta with fresh funghi porcini, tagliatelle with truffle and a meat tagliata with green pepper that was amazing. The guys from the staff (including the owner´s daughter) were really nice. We think the price was fair and ok, as we drank a bottle of wine... More

Seems we just hit a bad night if the other comments on here are to be believed, but this was a poor meal overall. My starter was good, in fact. A mixed set of bruschetta - tomato, pesto, pate and sausage - that were all fresh and well seasoned, but that was the standout part of the meal. My carpaccio... More

This restaurant was just perfect for us - casual, friendly, and fantastic! It was recommended to us by our hotel (l'Aretino) and they were spot on. The service was excellent and the food terrific. We had just arrived and weren't too hungry but wanted something small. We weren't pushed into ordering more than we wanted and had a bottle of... More

When we realized how busy this restaurant was at just 7:00 PM (early by Italian standards), we felt very lucky to be seated in one of the last empty tables for two. Once I saw gnocchi on the menu, I knew exactly what to order. Ever since my travel companion and I took a class in Umbria to learn how... More

The ambiance is really typical and it's a beautiful place. I did not give 5 stars only because I went on a busy day and they did not have 2 of my favourite dishes, which were on the menu. They were very polite and apologetic, and the food I ordered instead was really tasty. I went with a party of... More

We had a delicious meal here, the staff were friendly and helpful and it was in a great location, very easy to find in the middle of Arezzo.

My husband and I ate here on the recommendation of our taxi driver. We were not disappointed! I will not soon forget the truffle pasta or the traditional bread soup, the were amazing! I will be dreaming about them tonight.

We took the last table in a restaurant full of Italians which is always a good sign! Incredible soups, the tagliatelle with wild boar sauce was amazing, and the carpaccio was beautifully seasoned! Too full for dessert, but they looked yummy! Highly recommended! Very reasonable pricing too
