Good and friendly.

Good and friendly. Relaxed family atmosphere. Just a bit surprised by the cover charge of €5 per person - not on the menu (especially as tap water is €2 per bottle). But the pizza was good and very filling.

Kind waitress, but after half an hour I received a very dry and overcooked chopped meat with grilled red salad tasting only of burned....impossible to call it "Tagliata con radicchio e pinoli"! And in my opinion that meat was one or two day old and heated up. They have got a nerve, serving it! Adding the dirt of the toilets,... More

Pizza is exceptional. Staff are condescending to non-Italians (the first we hav encountered during our stay). He 3 in our party were made to move from a table for 4 to a table for 2 with a pulled up chair in a corner to leave the bigger table open. It remained open during our meal. Staff never checked with us.... More

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
