We mistakenly booked a B&B that was not in Arezzo centre but this restaurant was recommended and did not disappoint. Full of local diners and serving typical Tuscan fare. The owners daughter had worked in London so spoke fluent English but tolerated my attempts at speaking Italian with good grace. Great value and good food that just missed out on... More

We arrived in Arezzo after an overnight flight to Florence from the USA. We really were not looking for a meal out but our B & B host highly recommended this restaurant and called in a reservation. We arrived, non Italian speaking, first time out of the USA, weary travelers and were made to feel like family. The waitstaff was... More

One of my favorite, family run, restaurants in the outskirts of Arezzo. The food is authentic, wonderful and always a joy. I love the family and they are as much part of my reason to keep coming back. Amazing selection of wines (and for those who prefer: a nice selection of specialty beers). In my opinion: for those who do... More

Osteria da Giovanna was recommende to us by our very able guide, Sara, of Very Tuscany Tours. We ate there on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was bustling with happy locals. The food was delicious and the service very good. Definitely worth checking out. Very authentic and non-touristy.

Had a couple of evenings at Giovanna. Food was good and there was an extensive wine list. Local speciality dishes worth investigating. Sorry to say my Italian is non existent but waitress was very helpful in translating. Not an imposing restaurant but definitely worth a visit if in the area. We were lucky to get in on Friday night as... More

Had a business lunch there with a colleague who is from Arezzo. Beautiful Tuscan dishes with the perfect glass of wine. Osteria da Giovanna is definitely my 'goto' restaurant in Arezzo. Say hello to Luca the sommelier there when you go. In 2009 he was selected as the top sommelier in all of Italy.
