Would certainly visit again

Very friendly, pleasant service. Good menu and reasonable prices. A quiet Friday in March and therefore a bit lacking in atmosphere but I suspect evenings are much busier.

This restaurant wasn't our first choice, but we were so happy to end up here. VERY reasonable priced, for 44 Euro we had: - 2 large beer + 1/2 L house wine - 2 plates of the best pasta we had in Italy (truffled gnocchi and creamy artichoke pecorino ravioli - a very small but very tasty souffle (sfogat..?) -...

We were in front of this restaurant asking for information about it to a colleague who had dinner here several times in the past - it happened that the former cook (and wife of the previous owner as well as mother of the present owner) was passing by and very politely popped in our conversation. In NO time we were... More

Comfortable setting, very nice menu and the food was extremely well prepared. Service was friendly. Be sure to ask to see the wine cellar; they are happy to oblige.

House wine and those big ravioli (don't remember the exact name) with ricotta and walnut were perfect. One of the best dinners we've had in Italy.

Went twice as a large group. Lovely family, good Tuscan food and wine. Service can be somewhat scattered. Outdoor seating would be a huge plus.

We went to this restaurant for lunch with our friends our first day in Chiusi. Wow. My wife and I both got a cheese ravioli dish, with pecorino cheese in a cream sauce. The most delicious flavor combinations. Absolutely the best meal of our 10 day trip to Venice and Tuscany. The server was very attentive and helpful. Simply outstanding... More

Chuisi is a relaxed and easy going Etruscan hill town right smack on the border of Tuscany and Umbria. My family has visited the area a few times and during our last visit we discovered Ristorante Zaira. The menu was imaginative with fresh ingridents and great care taken with each course. Pasta, meats and side dishes were all delicious and... More

If you want to taste excellent fresh food, well prepared, genuine traditional dishes from Etruscan Tuscany, this restaurant is a safe address. Zaira's staff is polite, discrete and professional. Don't forget to ask them to visit the charming wines cellar.

This was a fantastic restaurant. I decided to not order the regular Italian food, but rather the baked potato. The potato came in slices with a fondue pot of melted cheese. For fun, order that and the "French fries" which are homemade potato chips and dip that into the cheese sauce too! My companions ordered the traditional Italian plates and... More
