“delightful lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Want a quick lunch in a fun place? This for you with choices of sandwiches or platters of fresh meat and cheese slices. My wife and I had the classico with a glass of local red wine, 12 euros each and was almost too much to finish. Eat inside or at tables acroos the narrow street. You will enjoy.

“Great little bar, wonderful ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

This was a great little wine bar in Volterra. The service was wonderful--the servings of cheese were generous as were the pours. The music was a fun mix of Elvis, the Beach Boys, and some other fun, chill songs. It's a tiny place, which gives you the sense of it's local feel, especially with the guys sitting around laughing, chatting and just having a good time. The bras (some signed) that cover the walls and ceilings are definitely a good conversation piece.

We loved this local wine bar... Affectionately named "Bruno's Bra Bar!" The wine, meat and cheese plate was delicious! Bruno was a great host to us crazy Americans!

“What a great time!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

We were told that this was a must...that we couldn't depart Volterra without leaving our "mark" at this quaint local wine bar. What great wine - what great people - and what a wonderful time was had by all...Thanks, Bruno!!!!!

“Neat wine bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here on a cold, wet, Volterra evening and we're not disappointed. Its a fun, comfortable, place for some reasonably priced wine and a plate of cheese.
