One of my favs in Arezzo

I've been there several times and it has never disappointed me. This time I was with an English friend and I wanted him to have a Tuscan experience.

I've been there several times and it has never disappointed me. This time I was with an English friend and I wanted him to have a Tuscan experience. Both food and wine were tasty and very well-presented. The menu has a good choice of starters and mains, including homemade pasta, meat and local specialities. Don't miss it!

This was my favorite places in Arezzo and I dined a couple of times/ year. It has a good location and a very comfortable setting both outside and inside. This time I took some friends and I was looking forward, as usual to an exceptional meal. Overall it was a decent meal but far different from the past. The menu... More

On iPad, so a brief review. Hadn't been here in several years, but it was the only place we could find open on Christmas Eve. IT WAS AN EXCEPTIONAL MEAL FROM START TO FINISH!! Bruschetta was fresh and tasty. However, my tagliolini pasta with tartufo was out of this world delicious. Absolutely made by hand. My partner's tagliata was the... More

We ate at Antica Fonte on the recommendation of our inn keeper at Agriturismo La Striscia (possibly our favorite place to stay in Tuscany). Being the Americans that we are, we wandered over at 7:30 and asked for a table. Sorry, all booked. The place, which is not small, was absolutely empty. After a bit of conference, the host agreed...

We were looking for a nice restaurant close to historical area of Arezzo. The restaurant was recommended by a welknown local shopkeeper. First impression was very positive: nice location, very comfortable dehor, a tasty local pizza bread with rosmarin served with the first bread. But immediately we realized a very limited choice in the menu, despite the offer of some... More

There are already a lot of reviews of this restaurant, so I normally wouldn't bother, but we just had dinner at Antica Fonte and it was fantastic. The outdoor seating area was perfect for a summer evening dinner, the waitstaff were friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. The lemon and mint tagliatelle was fresh and flavorful and my...

This Saturday was the night of a festival in Arezzo so we were a bit worried about finding a restaurant at such a busy time. Trip Advisor reviews led us here, particularly as it was described as slightly off the tourist track (by only a few minutes). We arrived a bit early for dinner, maybe 6:45, but we were promptly...

After a few evenings eating at pizzarias, I was recommended by the hotel receptionist to Anticafonte. It's a bit off the main tourist drag, but only five minutes. And not another tourist in sight. I went there two nights in succession: on the first a local luminary was holding forth at the next table to some spell-bound acolytes and on... More

I love everything about this restaurant - ambience, food and wine, service - it's just simoly perfection! The owners even took time to chat with us and recommend to us the best they can offer. I love the antipasti - the liver pate - most especially. Pasta was also great - I happen to like two kinds on the menu... More
