After a morning on Barrati beach we were heading for Osteria La Torre di Populonia which has great reviews. Sadly we missed their lunchtime opening so instead headed to La Taverna Di Populonia. Our family of four (inc two children 5 & 7) had a fantastic lunch with a range of super salads, specials and platters made up of very... More

After viewing the Etruscan ruins just outside this business section of this town we looked for a nice place for lunch. This restaurant had a pleasant outdoor seating area, with tables shaded by umbrellas. The waitresses were friendly and efficient. We had a simple lunch of antipasto and salad. The prosciutto on my wife's plate was excellent, sliced just perfectly... More

Lovely wee place situated in this ancient village. Plenty of great views and local culture in the surrounding area. Taverna has lots of shady outdoor space for seating. Menu is a short list of specials plus many salads- they had several unusual pastas plus seafood and a couple of meat dishes. All food was of excellent quality combined with cheerful... More

If you're visiting Populonia stopping by this restaurant is a must! Some of the best value dining we came across during our two week stay in Italy. As mentioned in other reviews the antipasti is delicious. I ate Pappardelle with Cinghiale (Wild Boar) Ragu which was top class, also they have a great wine list at cheap prices. The service...

This place was fantastic. Beautiful garden seating sheltered us from the heat, in the shade of old olive trees. Great friendly service and food (mixed antipast was amazing), and a €20 glass of Sadsicaia complemented the amazing gnuddi tartuffo. The town itself is tiny but totally over delivers on charm, be sure to climb the tower in the fort. Get... More

5 years in a row, we went to Populonia in summer for our holidays and stayed in one of the appartments in the castle. We soon discovered the taverna was a nice place to spend (almost all!) our evenings. The staff is very friendly, especially to children, they gave us a lot of advice about the wines and they even...
