We tried this place as it does gluten free and it was recommended by the host of our wine tour. They were very attentive when it came to being gluten free - special freshly baked gluten free bread and advice on main courses and desserts. Sadly there were about 4 mouthfuls of my pasta dish that contained bone within the... More

Really kind and attentive service on the attractively-appointed covered terrace. The food was really excellent examples of regional cooking and a step above where it needed to be in terms of execution: prettily presented with obvious attention to detail, but not at all fussy. Highly recommended.

Simple restaurant that is mainly frequented by locals. The kitchen is simple to, but typical italien. It is the ecxellence of then materials that makes for the excellent dish. We had a perfect "Fiorentina" with nice veggies and potatoes. could hardly be better. Interesting wine list at reasonable prices. Service friendly and efficient.

I've been there several times and it has never disappointed me. This time I was with an English friend and I wanted him to have a Tuscan experience. Both food and wine were tasty and very well-presented. The menu has a good choice of starters and mains, including homemade pasta, meat and local specialities. Don't miss it!

This was my favorite places in Arezzo and I dined a couple of times/ year. It has a good location and a very comfortable setting both outside and inside. This time I took some friends and I was looking forward, as usual to an exceptional meal. Overall it was a decent meal but far different from the past. The menu... More

On iPad, so a brief review. Hadn't been here in several years, but it was the only place we could find open on Christmas Eve. IT WAS AN EXCEPTIONAL MEAL FROM START TO FINISH!! Bruschetta was fresh and tasty. However, my tagliolini pasta with tartufo was out of this world delicious. Absolutely made by hand. My partner's tagliata was the... More

We ate at Antica Fonte on the recommendation of our inn keeper at Agriturismo La Striscia (possibly our favorite place to stay in Tuscany). Being the Americans that we are, we wandered over at 7:30 and asked for a table. Sorry, all booked. The place, which is not small, was absolutely empty. After a bit of conference, the host agreed...

We were looking for a nice restaurant close to historical area of Arezzo. The restaurant was recommended by a welknown local shopkeeper. First impression was very positive: nice location, very comfortable dehor, a tasty local pizza bread with rosmarin served with the first bread. But immediately we realized a very limited choice in the menu, despite the offer of some... More
