We enjoyed our evening meal here. Il Poggio is popular and serves good food. We would certainly eat here again. Nice staff.

Had the pizza and pasta here which were okay but nothing special. However it was the service that really let this place down. I don't mind waiting for food to arrive if it's worth the wait - but this wasn't. And getting the bill at the end of the meal was impossible. We ended up calculating it ourselves and then... More

We decided to eat in this place because we saw the terrace in the back alley, and seemed a good place to eat at the shadow. The place was wonderful but the food had nothing special. We asked for two different pizzas, they were not to big, and both seem to be the same pizza. Also asked for whine recomendation... More

We visited this restaurant yesterday. We were three families and ordered different food. Pizza small not even close to one you expect in Italy. Lasagne small portion and as well not very teasty. But the biggest disaster is a dessert. Tiramisu made base on Leibnitz biscuits and water with coffee and filled with mascarpone and cacao Never again, do not... More

This is a lovely looking restaurant in a gorgeous alley, so captures a lot of tourists passing by. As a family of 4 we each ordered something different and all rated this as 'average', all meals acceptable but not particularly nice; my ravioli rather bland and undercooked, the extra vegetable plate unappetizing, one of only a very few forgettable meals...

After a grueling trip up the hills of Volterra in the rain and dark, we ended up here for our first meal in town. It was a warm & friendly place, just what we needed after that drive. Service was good and local wine was fine. We split a bruschetta plate and then had Chingale Ragu on Tatatelle noodles and... More

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.
