Great Pizza! Service was ok not that fast but they got the job done. They make the pizza in a wood fire Pizza Oven but only one of them so they cant handle many pizza's at the same time.

Family run, friendly and traditional. Great place for a quick high quality pizza, nice touch that you can vary the flour type of the base - liked the maize one! Good house wines and lively atmosphere complete the picture here.

We enjoyed sitting outdoors on a warm evening and enjoying one of their pizzas. My wife ordered a spicy tomato pizza and I had a cipole (onion) pizza. We split. More than enuff. But we ended up eating the whole thing. Add a half liter of Tuscan vino rosso, and an inexpensive price and what a great evening.

Only in Volterra for a few hours we found this little family restaurant on a side street. The service was very good and we ordered two pizzas. My fiancé and I thought both were very good. If ever in Volterra I would certainly recommend this little gem.

Set on one of the many tiny cobbled streets of Volterra this restaurant caught our eye because of the pretty flower display on the tiny outside terrace. We visited in the evening and both had fantastic pizza's which we watched the owner make. The service was very friendly & quick & our food plus coffee & wine came to 28... More

This restaurant is a must if you are in Volterra, plenty of choices for different kind of pizzas, with lots of flavour in both crust and fillings. In fact much more flavour than any other pizza place we tried on our vacation in Italy. Must reccomend the buffala and the piccantissima pizza with garlic. Fairly priced, casual, and quick service.... More

Loved this place. First the bread was the best of good options we've had in Italy since arriving a week ago, and the gracious host/owner Antonella told us it was made from same bread dough used to make their pizza which they are known for. Likewise their vino rossa de la casa was better than house reds we sampled in... More

Went into Alla Vecchia Maniera on a whim (they had pappardelle al chingale (pasta with wild boar) on the menuboard outside. I've been waiting for this since we got to Tuscany. It was amazing!!! The pasta was cooked properly and the ragu was out of this... More

We happened upon this pizzeria, just out of hunger. The service was a 6 out of ten at first, but the place was filled with Italians, so that was a good sign! Their menu consisted of mostly pizza. I ordered a carbonara pizza with cheese, bacon, egg, and black pepper. My brother ordered piccantissima pizza with tomato, mozzarella, garlic, fresh... More
