Nothing to brag about

Our group of 8 stopped here for lunch. We had an assortment of first plates and apps. What can I say, it was neither bad nor great merely average. We did have good service and it was not very expensive.

Pizza that is no better than supermarket frozen, salad that was limp and looked like it came out a supermarket packet. The premises is nice and the service friendly. But Volterra is jammed with restaurants and you can certainly find a lot better than this.

A nice warm, cosy place for lunch. The two pasta dishes we had were very tasty. The place was quite busy, which is usually a good sign. The staff were pleasant and the service was good.

We sat inside in the upstairs dining room, which was very inviting, with a table that look out over the quiet street.There was a table of about 20 locals who were ordering course after course, always a good sign. We had the wild boar with beans, and the risotto, both of which were excellent. The restaurant was very busy, but... More

A decent enough meal near the centre of town. We had a good mixed angioplasty, then 3 decent enough pasta dishes and a reasonable pizza which took ages to come. We've had better meals during our stay in the region. It was fairly priced, but I am sure you can find better for the most money elsewhere in town.

This is not an italian pizza (looks like they buy it at the supermarket) and all the traditional foods are simply terrible. We left as soon as we taste it.

The outside seating is tempting and the service is very good, but the food was poor, or perhaps we ordered the wrong items as on a couple of tables nearby, the food looked better. But how wrong can you go with Gnocchi and a pork steak? Not somewhere that we would return to ....

Nice and cosy restaurant nearby the 'Etruscan Porta'. I enjoyed the 'antipaste di mare'. A large variety of seafood that's more than enough for a little hunger. Good wines at reasonable price.

After viewing the old Etruscan gate, well worth seeing, we came upon Il Poggio. The restaurant invites you in with the claim of having open air seating upstairs. That's not quite true as one goes first in ,then up and then back down where you find more seating in the parallel cul de sac. Staff were friendly and spoke good... More

We chose this restaurant because it was one of the first coming from the Medici Fortress, we were starving and atmosphere looked good. There were also some signs of recommendation from Guide du routard and other guides, typically a good sign, but (later), we noted were not recent. Our iphone was not working so we had not the opportunity to... More
