We had lunch at Ombra della Sera. The prices are slightly higher than other restaurants in town, however the food and service are consistent with the prices. Local seasonal dishes abound, leave room for desert.

We (tour group) all ended up going to the same place for dinner, so you are talking any where between 15 and 20 people. The restaurant was short staffed and somehow, we did notice a thing wrong with the service. The food was really incredible, there were so many different dishes ordered. We ordered the bolognese and a mushroom filled... More

Set just beside a small church in shaded spot on warm day this restaurant served up both the freshest seafood spaghetti and warm hospitality we have come to experience in these small medieval villages. Also great place to watch the world go by.

The owner made us feel very welcome. The pasta and rabbit was really taste. So fair the only negative it was the fact we ordered 2 glasses of wine what supposed to cost €10.00, but we ended up paying €20.00. As the staff was really nice with us we didn't want to complain about it, but keep your eyes on... More

Lovely restaurant in Voltera, has an extensive menu specialized in truffles. Prices are fair for the quality served and is a good place for lunch if you enjoy your senses. Staff speak a bit English and they also have English menus. The portions served are also generous. Restaurant is clean and staff are friendly.

You want to feed your family. You want to be close to center. You want to eat outside, and you want to feel catered to as a family. Pasta 🔘. Price 🔘. Wine 🔘. Don't waste time looking too far. This place is just right.

Several years ago, on our first visit here, we both enjoyed some fantastic tuna steaks. Simple but truly memorable fish. On this visit once again we had the fish of the day. Really lovely. The service was friendly and helpful. Looking forward to our next visit at the Ombra della Sera.

This gnocchi was terribly boring and I must advice everybody to go somewhere less touristic. The location and the tablecloth was nice.

Recommended by people I was staying with, this restaurant did not disappoint. Serving good Tuscan cuisine, I enjoyed a meal outside accompanied by a very good local white wine, Service was amiable & the meal not too pricey (but not cheap). They offer more than just pizza, so a good place for all tastes.

Thank FranceSally
