Exceptional Lunch!

Arrived in Volterra and walked through the gates smelling the cooking of this restaurant. Returned an hour later to a wonderful lunch of pizza, pasta and lasagne... all of which were priced appropriately for the quantity received however the quality was much better than anticipated.

Pizza is very good but the service was extremely poor. As noted by other contributors, the tables are very cramped. Our party of 3 was moved f pm a table of 4 to a table for 2 where they pulled up another chair. They then sat a local family of 3 at our original table. No one checked on us.... More

Very average, seemed to just throw loads on the plate in the hope that it will cover up for the lack of quality. Had the Chianti Classico wine which was overpriced and not good at all. Service was good however.

I rarely post a complaint on Trip Advisor as normally their recommendations are great but I have to say this is the worst restaurant I have ever visited in Italy (and we come here a lot!). We sat down at a cramped table and ordered our drinks. Two cans were thumped down on our table with no effort to open... More

Went expecting a great meal due to the previous reviews. It was ok. Average meal for an average price. Shared bruschetta and a couple of slices of a cheese type cake/slice. Main meals : grilled beef with rosemary. Ok. Very generous portion. And I ordered pork. It was stuffed with cabbage. Was ok. Nothing fabulous but again a very generous... More

We ate here three times during our recent visit. The staff were great - very friendly and keen to please. The portions were generous every time and we had to pace ourselves after not being able to manage desert on our first visit. Proper Italian home cooking - highly recommended.

We paid this Trattoria a visit because of the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately, the experience did not live up to expectations (unlike for example Osteria dei Poeti, which was excellent). The starters (bruschette, assorted sauces etc) were fine, but nothing to write home about. The pizzas would fall into the same category, while the tagliata was rather disappointing. (Btw.,this...

We were in Volterra for 2 nights only and had been slightly disappointed by the food in our hotel, so looking for a local, non touristy place to eat. Understandably the Tourist information were not allowed to recommend, so I went to ask a lady watching the world go by outside her shop. With help of signs, arms and legs,... More

We ate here on our first night in Tuscany. Yes, it's cheap and cheerful, yes it's rustic, but it's friendly and the food was really good! The homemade celery pesto pasta was my favourite dish of the whole holiday, and I didn't even order it, my husband did - I was so jealous!

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. Collected from our hotel (6 min drive away) by the restaurant owner. Friendly service. Absolutely huge portions of food which in fact was slightly off-putting. However the quality of the food was great. Particular mention for the truffle and cream tagliatelle - superb.
