We had a nice lunch. Meat was okay. Veal with pepper and a veal with lemon sause. Nice but not extraordinary. Paid 6 euros for a salad of only green saled leaves. That was bit dissapointing. Bottle of water 2 euros. Okay. Not great but definately okay.

We had reserved for 4 on the terrace outside, but the family before us were taking their time. The owners offered us to wait inside with a glass of fine prosecco and to win some time we could already choose from the menu. We had antipasti for 4 which was really delicious. The wine (Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2015 from... More

We had wild roar and beef on lemon sauce, tiramisu. They were all perfect. The waiters were also all very nice. We would recommend this place to everyone coming to Volterra.

Fast and nice service, very good steak and amazing tiramisu. Best tiramisu money can buy😁. Also you should try suppa volterana.

We red a menu before deciding where to have a lunch and it seemed very traditional and typical - just what we were searching for. What a di disappointment! "Spaghettoni" were not home made pasta, but a simple, low cost spaghetti..overcooked (eating pasta which is not "al dente" in Italy is a serious crime). I asked a well done steak..and... More

We decided to stop here for lunch as it had a nice outdoor area and the menu looked nice as well. Service was good to start with when got seated but then sort of disappeared. The worst part though was the food. Two of us ordered the Beef Stew? which sounded nice but when it arrived it was just a... More

Stopped there for lunch and were not disappointed. The vegetable soup was excellent and the wild boar meal was very good. The servers did their best to answer all our questions and our overall impression was very good.
