Charming, with great pizza!

My husband and I ate there today at lunch and had a lovely meal. We shared a bruschetta pomodoro - which was nice, and then we each had our own pizza. Mine mine De la casa (or something like that: the "house" pizza) and my husband had the pizza "of the day", which was mushroom. He loved his pizza... read more

This was a very good find. They had a nice selection of food and their sea bass was perfect. Also, it's fun to people watch. Close to the Etruscan museo.

We had dinner with our children, great wine, great food. Very good service. Maybe one of the best tiramisu I have ever ordered.

Fantastic steak in pepper sauce and the recommended Tiramisu was the best ever according to my very own Sally ( you know from the film with Harry ). All the pasta dishes were really full of flavours and my 14 year old days the chocolate ice cream was to die for.

We went to Ombra della Sera after reading a recommendation from Rick Steve's. I believe there are two locations in Volterra? We went to the one that has pizza on the menu. It was the best pizza we have had in Tuscany...we had the pizza with wild boar sausage and I had one of the typical Tuscan soups. They were... More

Fantastic food, friendly attentive staff and kids went off to the torture museum after lunch leaving adults to enjoy ambience. Highly recommended and can't understand any negative reviews.

Another review where I wish that I could give 3.5 stars. I can't rate Ombra Della Sera as "very good" because it wasn't. "Average" may be harsh, but there you have it. We were passing through Volterra as part of an Italian road-trip and wanted somewhere for a simple lunch. This place offered just that - we each had a... More

We had a nice lunch on the way to visit the Eutruscan museum. The homemade pasta with wild boar was especially nice.

On a day trip to the hill region of western central Tuscany, our guide in Florence recommended we eat in Volterra, a small town, not overwhelmed by tourists. So glad we did. Just wandered by the inviting outdoor seating area of Ombra della Sera and settled in for a very enjoyable lunch. I had a vegetable soup, that was loaded... More
