We went here as a family in search of good but local Tuscan cooking. we wanted authentic local cooking and we got it. Highly recommend this place. We sat outside. No great views from our table as the tables don't face out across the valley but we were busy eating so it didn't really matter. Plenty of dishes to keep... More

I'm from Australia and was taken by a friend who's a local Volterian, so that already says something.Mum and dad in the kitchen,multilingual son works front of house. Best steak eaten thus far in Italy...served with fresh porcini on top. Most memorable. Good wine and all reasonably priced. Lovely countryside ambience.

This is a must visit. The owners are always working in the restaurant and they make amazing meals! We ate here 5 times during our stay in Volterra. They also own a rental property "Le Macine" that you can find on HomeAway.com. I loved the rabbit and the pasta was so fresh and homemade. Everything is cooked to order so... More

No matter what your map app tells you, just go to mile marker 49.4 on the road to Florence heading east out of Volterra. I had the most incredible coniglia dish (rabbit). It was the best plate I had in more than two weeks in Europe. Allesandro (Alex) is a fabulous and witty host. About €30 per person, booze included,... More

We took a taxi from Volterra to this restaurant, Tripadvisor said it was 900 metres from our hotel, It turned out to be more like 9kms! Having said that, the food was lovely. They specialise in meat dishes. There is no fish on the menu. Prices are reasonable and the waiter was very friendly. Recommended

The food and service was just so good - we had lunch here three times! Look out for the giant, tall thin, banana yellow banner on the main 68 road between Volterra and Colle di Val d'Elsa . The restaurant itself is set well back from the road. It is a very friendly family run business with a very relaxing... More

It's not often that we stopped on the road for a restaurant but this time we followed the trip advisor recommendation and we were not disappointed! Welcome and food as great. We had some bruschetta with spaghetti al la puttanesca which were just marvelous! Then risotto pasta and meat and of course dolce. The atmosphere on the terassa was great... More
