My welcome to Arezzo

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... read more

I have had so many mediocre - to - bad lunches in Arezzo , especially during the monthly antique fair, it was sheer delight to find Osteria Il Grottino! A lovely outdoor corner under the cover of umbrellas, attentive service and the food...The food is wonderful! It is largely traditional Tuscan, but with a touch of something extra. I had... More

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.

The food was good as well in terms of both quality and quantity. We choose to have the wild boar as one of our main dish and found the dish to to tasty,... 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'.
