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

Crowded, noisy and plagued by beggars selling roses every ten minutes. Main courses arrived with no fork and no serving spoons for the salad. I used to eat here years ago and the place was perfect - the new owners need to adopt a more friendly and intimate atmosphere, and forget trying to cater for huge numbers with mediocre service...

we found this place by asking the locals themselves. hey, if they think the food here is great, we had to taste it. we arrived at the restaurant at 6:30 pm so we had to wait for it to open at exactly 7:00pm. we were glad we did since the place got full very quickly after that. the staff is...

Lot of choices and diversified menu. Very professional and efficient staff. Nice homemade desserts Busy restaurant and does not accept bookings which speaks by itself. Went there more than 2 times and tried the taggliattas, beef carpaccio, bruschetta, cheesecake. Nice typical tuscany decoration and atmosphere.

Attractive restaurant with good food and atmosphere. Unluckily we found a bit of metal scourer in our food, but the patrons were very apologetic and did not charge us the service fee. Accidents happen but it's the great response that makes a wonderful restaurant. I had rabbit for the first time, which I thoroughly enjoyed, much to the chagrin of... More

Sadly we went there three times. The first two times were fabulous and so for our last dinner we decided to go back there as our final leaving italy dinner. What a disappointment! Clearly they has either lost a chef or it was his day off, as the food was awful! Several of us ordered the palenta and wild boar,... More

This restaurant was one on the first we tried when we moved here some years ago. It has never failed to deliver - excellent food which reflects the season, good service and good value too. Despite being popular on trip advisor it is more Italian than tourist.
