“Delightful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We have just returned from 5 nights in Volterra and used this restaurant twice - for a lunch and a dinner. We enjoyed all the dishes we selected. The staff were helpful and had a great sense of humour. I would thoroughly recommend eating here.

“Fantastic Friendly Restaurant - and Great Prices Too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Next time I go to Volterra I will eat here EVERY evening! This is a great restaurant with really friendly staff and excellent food - I recommend the wild boar, the gorgonzola pizza and the ravioli. Excellent side dishes too. Very welcoming, and when we bumped into the waiter the next day he remembered us and we had a chat. On our last evening they all shook our hands and wished us a safe trip home, while they took our photos and we theirs! Strongly recommended, just a short walk down the hill from the main square in a little pedestrian street parallel to the main drag. Should be No 1 in Volterra! Oh, almost forgot - extremely good prices, great value for money. House wine by the litre is particularly good. Go there - you will not be disappointed.

Great little restaurant. Excellent service with no hassle and great food. Varied menu, including Italian and non-Italian meals. Well worth a vist.

“Hidden gem in Volterra”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Excellent service and even better food! A real value for money. Hidden in one of the side streets it made it possible for our son to run around. Attentive service, great wine and the secondi platti were paticularly good. One tip though: just don't order the chef's antipasti it's nothing special.

“Amazing food and great helpful (funny) staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

This is my second time in Volterra and the second time eating here. My wife and I originally went here because they had some local specialty dishes (flat noodles in hare sauce). It was and still is delicious! I highly recommend this place and pretty much anything on their menu.
