Restaurants in touristical towns are difficult to judge. Feels like you're always fooled. Also this one: food is not bad, portions are small and service is too "english" with same jokes at every table. Nevertheless the terrace will always be full...

Only wanted a light lunch, and hoped not to get tourist fat and succeeded. Had a nice glass of house red and spaghetti pesto , gf had ravioli, both very nice. Staff freindly, helpfull and not pushy. Waiter was not missing the Yorkshire weather.

We ate here on a three day stay in Volterra. There is a good choice on the menu and some local dishes as well. We had the wild boar with olives and junipers which was delicious.

Wild boar 'stew' with black olives excellent. Deserts fantastic. Pasta dishes all good. Waiter was fantastic company on a quiet cool Monday evening. The 2 old wells are worth seeing.

The first night in Volterra we ended in this restaurant which looked cozy. The waiters were very kind and the place was charming. The food was good, but nothing special. A little expensive compared to the quality.
