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

We attended the October Antique Fair in Arezzo and stumbled upon Osteria Anticafonte on our way back to our car. Their impressive collection of Trip Advisor and local award stickers on their window told us this must be a good choice so we went inside. They had just opened and we were the first table seated. We ordered wine, a... More

We recently had lunch at Antica Fonte during the Arezzo antiques weekend in October. The restaurant came highly recommended by the owner of our B&B Cento Passi dal Duomo. We're glad we took his advice! We tried to get a table for Saturday night but didn't have reservations so we booked for lunch on Sunday. The menu is small but... More
