Don't be fooled by the flags waving outside or the simple appearance of the restaurant itself. This is a charming family owned roadside inn just outside of Volterra. Restaurant offers typical Tuscan dishes. Excellent quality food, genuine home made flavour and friendly staff have kept us coming back on each of our visits to Tuscany. The prices are unbeatable. We can warmly recommend and will definitely be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Locanda il Boschetto is situated in the heart of Tuscany, just 10 km from Volterra, a city full of historical treasures, 15 km. from S. Gimignano, with its majestic towers, 35 from Siena, with its famous Palio and 45 from the nearest sea. The structure is so named because it lies just outside a forest of oaks and holm oaks where you can go to escape the summer heat. The Locanda il Boschetto has 6 rooms among double and triple ones (all equipped themselves with TV, refrigerator and private bathroom with shower), and inside a restaurant where you can taste the most genuine and classic recipes from Tuscany, accompanied by a selection of the most famous Tuscan wines. Our goal is to offer our guests a relaxing journey, trying to bring them closer to the Tuscan culinary tradition. Our kitchen is trying to be as genuine as possible, making use wherever possible, of products from our garden, those of the forest, our olive oil to prepare some types of handmade pasta, pickled vegetables, jams, cantuccini biscuits and many others sweets.We gladly welcome all kind of animals who can enjoy the same holiday of their owners, surrounded by greenery. ... more less
