Our group enjoyed a table on the piazza with three pasta dishes and lovely house vino. Pasta varieties tried: pesto, truffle and duck with pommagranet sauce. Highly recommend for an pasta dish.

Being right across the way from the Etruscan Museum, I was expecting a tourist trap. To my surprise this was a great Tuscan restaurant, serving local specials. Terrific fresh white truffle dishes, paired with excellent wine. This is a great value in a great location.

This is the standard of pizza you expect to eat in Italy - and almost nowhere else in the world. The toppings are generous, fresh and delicious on these huge pizzas, and the pizza base is made by experts - perfect! There is plenty of...choice of pizzas too. You can sit outside in the attractive piazza, and enjoy great views beyond Volterra to one side, and historical chapels and buildings to the other, all accompanied by delightful service both from the waiting staff and the friendly owner. These are the types of eating experiences you come to Italy for!More

Visited in September with friends. Salmon was burned completely black and waiter did not want to admit it. Instead he just said this is how we make it here. Seriously? 15 EUR for poorly made piece of fish. Shame on you. Choose a seafood pasta...instead which was salty as hell. Avoid please.More

Try the Cinghiale. That is what I came for based on a lovely experience dinging here five years earlier. Sit outside if the weather permits and take your time to soak in the light pedestrian traffic (this is towards one of Volterra's gates so barring...a handful of restaurants there is nothing to drag the crowds). The food is good, service is better. But loyalty and a smile should count for something and so we went back. No regrets. I'll be back (sorry Arnie).More

Unfortunately lobster wasn't fresh... Which was a bit disappointing. Staff is super nice :) and location is great but food is not

Came here for our dinner the night we stayed in Volterra because we were looking for some fish -- not shellfish, but fish-fish, and that can be hard to find in most of these Italian restaurants. We were as usual the first people in the...place at 7:45 or 8 (guidebooks aren't kidding when they say Italians eat late) and so the service was nice and prompt and the waiter (who I think was the owner) very eager to please. My husband got the dorado and I got the branzino and they were both grilled to perfection. My only complaint, a small one, was that I was expecting a fillet and instead got the whole fish on my plate. I imagine they would have filleted it for me but I was too embarrassed to ask. :) At any rate the fish was exactly what we were looking for! Unfortunately about halfway through the meal a huge party came in and took up half the restaurant (the inside is small, but they have a large outdoor section) and were very noisy, but that's not the fault of the restaurant. We did need to be a little more proactive to catch the server's attention after that, but they were always very happy to help.More

We were pleased to snag an outside table for a beer and a pizza lunch but the first waitress didn't speak English so would not serve us even though we pointed to the Italian items on the menu. The second inside waitress was very slow...to wait on us, and then when she did it took over an hour for a veggie pizza to be served. To add insult to injury, we were charged over 20 euros once the cover charges added on. We regretted not walking away... slow, surly and a poor value... we do not recommend this restaurant.More

We had a perfect window, right by the open window. We initially took cover here as we were hit by an intense rain storm and were welcomed warmly...another restaurant kicked us out as they were too busy...with only half the tables full. We loved watching...the rain roll in and feel the breeze on our faces. The table by the window is the best. We wanted a lighter lunch but when we saw a truffle gnocchi on the menu, we change our mind and went for it. We also had their Margarita pizza (which was super affordable - like 6Euro only). The gnocchi was heaven. Pillowy and rich. We shared it with the group as it is very rich dish...but so worth it!More
