We waited to eat at a local place instead of eating in Volterra, it was well worth it. We all got something different and every dish was great. Local food and wine, authentic cuisine and they speak English very well. GO THERE!

I cannot possibly count how many times we have been to Elio's and Marcia's place, but I do know that we never get disappointed!!! They make the most tasty tuscan dishes and run, together with their son Alessandro a B&B that makes you always feel welcome and at home. Do not leave without trying bruschetta di pomodoro, crostini with salsiche... More

Driving to Voterra we decided to stop for lunch. Like a previous review mentions, we were not exactly drawn in by the appearance of the place, but we had discovered other delightful finds off the beaten path so we were willing to give it a chance. Wise decision. The food was wonderful and very reasonably priced, the house wine a... More

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

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.

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!

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
