“driving through the the countryside looking for a bite to eat?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

On our way from Voltera to Siena we were in need of a quick bite to eat. We saw the flags out front and decided to pull off at Locanada Il Boschetto. We are not hard to please when it comes to Italian food, but were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the pastas, especially the one with wild boar. More than anything, we were impressed with the quaint ambiance and the friendly staff. We would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone driving thought the countryside looking for some delicious and reasonably priced pasta and an interaction with some friendly Italians.

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.

My sister and I visited Tuscany in October, we visited Locanda II Boschetto for a lovely meal. The food was amazing and the staff was beyond nice and accommodating. We left feeling not only full of food but full of laughter. Next time I visit Italy I will most definitely make another visit!

We pulled in to have a quick lunch the other day and were pleasantly surprised by a great little meal. We bought some biscotti because they were so good. alex whose family owns the place was really sweet. We then recommended it to some other people we met on our travels.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

We stayed there one night during our trip to Tuscany last September.
Quit simple but good accommodation to overnight next to the road. Very tasty local food in the restaurant on the ground floor, nice hosts, simple Italian breakfast. No garage but free parking place in the front of the building and possibility to place your motorbike behind hotel.
The prices were quit cheap (both: for room and for dinner).

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
