We stumbled upon this place tucked away behind the Plazzo Dei Priori. The service was incredibly efficient and the food was very good. The pasta was some of the best that I have ever had (Mussel and Clam spaghetti) and was absolutely brimming with shellfish - I even had to share some! Very good value for the quality of the... More

Volterra is a gem in the Tuscan countryside and this restaurant just added to the sparkle. Excellent in every way - good service, lovely food and all at a reasonable price. And tucked away off the main streets it was a quiet place to recharge the batteries before exploring even more of the town.

The place was really buy on the 2nd of June national holiday. And it's near the Priority square where the palio was being readied. The service was a bit brusque but efficient. Mixed salumi appetizer was excellent. Unfortunately neither of the pasta dishes we chose were good - the ravioli were kind of weird and the pasta with a white... More

Having spent the whole day wandering around the Tuscan countryside and arriving at Volterra late in the evening and starving we found this restaurant right alongside the back of the Palazzo Priori. The town can get very quiet at night which makes it a bit difficult picking out a suitable place for dinner but this place did not disappoint. We... More

I've been to Sacco Fiorentino a number of times, and have always eaten very well. The ingredients are fresh, genuine and local, and the dishes made from scratch - you can tell by the taste, and by the fact that you don't feel too heavy after a full meal here. For seafood, meat and game the dishes are all quite... More

This is a lovely restaurant with an interesting menu. It is a bit off of the Piazza in Volterra and needs reservations as it fills up quickly. We ate upstairs and the ambience and the food were both quite good.

Food was excellent! Highly recommended Tuscan dinning. My family will not forget the fantastic service with a smile. Grazie mille a Cristina for helping us find a place to stay during the Medieval Festival in August!

This restaurant is split into two - the main part indoors and a small outdoor space. We ate in the latter and had a charming lunch in this lovely Tuscan hilltop town. Our meal was enlivened by a marching band which just happened along the narrow street. The main restaurant was peopled by locals having a leisurely Sunday lunch. We... More
