This restaurant has a great menu that has reasonable prices for authentic Italian food. They cater to families, and have a nice selection of pastas and sauces that you can mix-and-match, plus lots of other great options. Went there with friends and really enjoyed the wine selections and speedy service. Definitely a great dinner spot!

Just returned to our hotel I Portici from the restaurant where we had a lovely meal. The atmosphere, the food , the service, everything was so enjoyable. The staff were top class, Andreas, he personally looked after us, and our waitress, did not get her name, was so good. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and would recommend a visit to... More

We needed a place not too far from the train station because our friends were catching a train after lunch. We were drawn in by the Routard plaques, since Routard can usually be relied upon to suss out the cheap and cheerful places. Having secured one of the last outside tables, we watched in fascination as hordes of Italians poured... More

We stayed in the restaurant twice because it was so fantastic there. The meal was the best we had on our Italy tour. All the courses, antipasti-primi piatti-secondi piatti-dolce, have been great. It is a must to go there and try the "coniglio" and the dolce "pigliamisu"!!!!

Found this place by chance and when we went in we were the only ones. Half an hour later the place was busy with what looked like all local people. It was one of the best rustic Italian meals I have had. Simple Italian cooking at its best. When we got back to the hotel and told the manager where... More

The last day of our visit to Arezzo, a stop for lunch at this excellent restaurant. Good food, nice ambience, full of locals. We shared a pasta dish and gnocchi which were lovely, I then had the oven cooked rabbit which was excellent. We both had pudding, a variant of tiramisu without coffee and a local dish with chestnuts honey... More

I love eating offal and rare meat that I can't find where I'm living, so I was so happy to find this local restaurant recommended by the concierge. The English menu didn't describe the dish very well, but I didn't care as long as I knew the basic cut of meat etc. I ordered ribolita soup and tripe as main... More

I went to Il Cantuccio in Arezzo based on TA recommendations. I think 4 stars is a little generous. Service is sketchy... decent, but not above average. The pici with ragu was VERY average.... and scalding hot. The sauteed fresh porcini were ok, but didn't knock my socks off. I have a high bar set by Ristorante Dardano in Cortona.... More

Since we stayed in the Hotel Portici just across the street we tried out this restaurant with success. Authentic italian cuisine, fair prices, good service and a good atmosphere. We can recommend Cantuccio.
