Fantastic Rabbit

Our VRBO host recommened Cantuccio, and we were very happy to have the suggestion. Our server was kind, attentive, and helped us navigate the menu without making us feel like tourists. We had the tuna in oil starter, and it was a little bite of the sea and firm and wonderful. The rabbit was just... read more

The restaurant does not take reservations, so you can often find a line outside waiting for a table, already suggests that the reluctance to the client, that is felt powerfully if you try to do some grievance to the owners, it seems that you do a favor to make you eat, in spite of this the place is always full....

Visited Il Cantuccio again for a great meal. The antipasto Toscano is superb and the pasta is to die for. The wild boar ragu is fantastic. House wine great and all reasonably priced. A great find in Arezzo.

We tasted typical Tuscany food. They were very polite in accepting us even thought we arrived very late for lunch (15.15). Acceptable quality/price ratio

We ate here in the first day of our stay in Arezzo this December, merely because it was steps away from the hotel, but it turned out to be one of the best food experiments we have had in Tuscany so far. Excellent food and great ambience, as this restaurant is a favorite by locals. We were so pleased that... More

We visited the restaurant because of online reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was very good and it was obvious that the restaurant attracted local patrons as well as travelers. We ate at lunchtime and the restaurant was full. Service was friendly but slow, they seemed to be understaffed. The wine and wine prices were very reasonable. I... More

I go regularly to Arezzo to visit the Feria del Antiquariato (Antiques Fair) and this is one of the restaurants I Always go to! It is a trattoria style, very laid back but always with queues of customers who know, that it is worth waiting for your table at this place! Our favorites: rabbit grilled with finocchietto and its variant,... 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
