We stumbled upon this restaurant when another was complete. We really enjoyed our meaL and the service was great. Fredrico our server was kind and funny and could speak and understand English. He was a delight and also very competent. The pasta is made in house and is wonderful!! This restaurant is also very reasonably priced. Enjoy!

If you're staying in Arezzo, if you want to eat local cooking at very high level, if you want to do it in a warm and friendly environment, feeling like at home, Osteria Il Grottino is the right place! I was there with my family and we all agree it was a great dinner. Very good wine and fantastic food.

Found this place by accident after getting to my hotel and quickly hunting for a lunch place before riposo kicked off. Great outdoor seating. Simple and quick service. Had a small salad, with fresh ravioli filled with ricotta and spinach in a walnut cream sauce. Excellent. One of the best pasta dishes I've had this trip. Will definitely stop by... More

Cozy outdoor corner. Good food, with many local dishes with truffles to several of the dishes. Serving was fine, but nothing special

We went into this restaurant to escape the torrential rain but enjoyed it enough to come back later in the week. Service was very friendly with dishes explained and overall it represented good value for money. We particularly enjoyed the roast pork and the hot chicken liver dish 'in the style of nonna'.
