This is a sweet restaurant in a very nicely reclaimed part of central Arezzo. So nice to walk to as well,almost like walking into a village area.
It is a simple relaxed place and the staff are incredibly friendly and well-informed.
We had quite a few issues around food - a vegetarian and myself with wheat intolerance. All of this was dealt with sensitively and in a professional manner with great flexibility in relation to the menu,
The vino della casa was superb.
We had huge and delicious starters. Really excellent.
We ahd ordered seconds but as we talked with the waitress about the fact we were already full she volunteered that we could cancel the second course - this was about half an hour after ordering! I did cancel but was sort of disappointed -I had ordered pork on a bed of pistacchio creme - it sounded divine!
We had the nicest and most simple dessert - Grekk yoghurt with toasted hazelnuts and honey. Wonderful.
I was with two local Aretini, who highly recommend this place. Sometimes it is buzzing, so best to book.
