We were wandering around and realized we had kinda skipped lunch. I noticed this place had quite the turnout so we decided to give it a shot. Glad we did. We kept it relatively simple, tagliatelle al chinghalle and tagliatelle al fungi porcini, plus some lovely dolci (I'm a sucker for cantucinni con vin santo) and we had a great... More

I had the pasta with truffles and parmesan sauce and it was really pasta with melted butter and dry mushrooms on top and no parmesan. It was the tasteless pasta I ate in Italy. We also had a caprese salad and the basil was black, very bad quality of the whole dish. For those, a small bottle of water and... More

Had a lovely typical Italian dinner here this summer. Fresh ravioli with tartufo, simple dish but so tasty! Did not make a reservation and were able to sit outside on the terrace. Was totally full when we left though.

This was a big disappointment. Dishes on menu then not available even early in the evening, carpaccio stringy and greasy, pork dried up, service grumpy, sat outside and repeatedly approached by flower sellers and others. There are lots of good places in Arezzo so don't go here.

I ate an awesome tipical soup, pasta and tagliata e porcini which is basically excellent meat served with big uncut special mushrooms (steinpilz in german). The food was incredibly tasty and served with excellent and not too expensive wine.

Our family (3 children aged 12,12 and 10) enjoyed a really lovely meal here thanks to these reviews. The food was delicious, good value and promptly served. The atmosphere where we sat outside was quaint and charming and staff were friendly. Definitely recommend.

We visit Il Cantuccio quite often as we live in the area. It is a typical Italian Tuscan restaurant with traditional local dishes and fresh pasta. Quality is always exceptional and the service outstanding. Congratulations to all the staff and of course the chef of the restaurant!

this cozy restaurant tucked around the corner from the piazza has wonderful food and very reasonable prices. There is nothing fancy about the restaurant -- just wonderful flavors in a comfortable, casual setting. Two members of our group spoke some Italian, and the waiter was enthusiastically supportive of our efforts to communicate in Italian, while also helping our English-only friends... More

Our hotel recommended as a great place with scratch cooking. Small intimate and casual, we thought the food was outstanding. Met the owners sin who was serving and quite friendly. We'd highly recommend this place for good food and nontourist experience. We had pasta and chicken
