We visit Italy 2-3 times a year. Many Volterra locals told us that Il Sacco Fiorentino has the best food in town, which meant we had to try it. We were happy with the food we got and followed the suggestions of our server. In summer they have a small patio with a few tables; in winter there is cozy... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Volterra. It is a very genuine family owned and run place a bit off the tourist trail and frequented by local people. The food ranges from the sublime (eat the pigeon or the pork) to the OK (Pici with truffle). The wine is local, good and inexpensive. It is let down by... More

This small restaurant located in a small street in Volterra - Tuscany (Italy) is a little difficult to find. The look of the resturant is not so special (typical rustic restaurant from Tuscany), but the quality of food an the quantity is amazing. We had a special antipasti with excelent selection of traditional cold meats, pigeon cooked with a wine... More

We had intended a single course lunch stop here. We were five on our way between Tuscan holidays. The friendly and obliging staff were happy to transmute truffle bruschetta for one into five portions and we could not resist changing from pasta to proper secundi. Pigeon was quite delicious, their signature dish, but tagliata was also very good. One glass... More

We spent a very enjoyable evening at Il Sacco Fiorentino with our Rick Steves tour group. Everything we ate tasted good, and the wine was just right for the meal. The atmosphere is part of the experience - something about the restaurant just puts you in a good mood.

We decided to spend one of our days in Tuscany "off the beaten path" in Volterra. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire Volterra experience, and this lunch fit right in. This was a Rick Steves recommendation and we were not disappointed. The food and service was very good. We enjoyed several diverse offerings from the menu. The atmosphere was great and... More

My wife and I went here on the advise of the owner of our B&B. She said it was a favorite of locals. Her recommendation was spot on. I had cinghigale (wild boar) in a ragu for the first time and it was heavenly. However, the best part was the atmosphere of a local restaurant with good local table wine... More

Our dinner was pleasant although limitations in the staff’s English made ordering a little difficult. The spinach dumpling was good and although the wild bore was a bit dry and overcooked, the rest of the meal was very tasty.

There were other trendier and more popular places to eat in Volterra but we gave this one a try and were not disappointed. Food was good and wholesome, served by a gracious lady who even offered us a complimentary liqueur at the end of our meal. Menu varied enough not to be overwhelming. For dessert you must try the panna... More

I had lunch here, sitting outside. Nothing was too much trouble - a table was quickly prepared for me; all requests for water, wine, and for oil and balsamic vinegar to eat with the bread were promptly fulfilled, The food was presented very well and was very tasty. The service was very good - just the right amount of attention... More
