We ate here for lunch on a sunday in late June. We found the location in keeping with the Tuscan style. The food is rustic and with abundant use of oil ( a bit heavy). I tend to agree with the other reviews that say it is a bit pricey for what they give you even though we found the... More

The worst place to dine in entire Volterra ! Bad Food, Bad Service and high prices! Me and my family of twelve unfortunatly ate lunch at this place. It began when we came, beacuse of how many we were they needed to get ekstra tables and chaires. That changed their attitude fast to bad and irritated... The food came out... More

Proper pizza, with proper toppings cooked very well. Fresh ingredients - creamy mozzarella, deep tomatoes, fresh capers, full on local salami. Friendly staff, decent location. Just wish they could deliver to the UK!

I was very much looking forward to taking my wife for lunch at Osteria La Pace following many excellent reviews that I had read on Trip Advisor. Sadly, it did not live up to my expectations and was mediocre at best. We ordered spinach and ricotta ravioli and pici in a tomato sauce for our first plate, followed by a... More

This is a little gem just inside the city gates. Ate there multiple times both lunch and dinner with awesome results at a fair price each time.

Just inside the city wall is the Osteria La Pace. The price of their set menus was unbelievable and we were somewhat leery of what we would be getting but decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise. Not only were the portions large but they were delicious. This is a family run business and their home cooking... More

I'm very happy I picked this place for my Volterra lunch because the food was clearly homecooked and tasted amazing! I was lucky enough to get fresh truffles on my bruschetta and the celery pesto on hand made ravioli was to die for!

Walking by in the morning the restaurant was preparing for lunch. We could not pass en walk by without asking what this increadible dish is which we were smelling in the street. They told us it was nothing special and it was just the base sauce they use for a lot of pasta's. After visiting the town we returned for... More

......The food was GREAT, but the two waitresses (and the owner) didn't treat us the way they were supposed to do. I mean, nothing especially obnoxious...just a bit of unfriendliness, which is always painful when you pay 90 Euro (3 people) not only to eat well but also to FEEL well. Maybe they didn't like our accent (we are from... More
