Third or fourth time we have gone to eat here because the food was amazing. This time I left disappointed. Nothing "bad" - but nothing special. Prices have also gone up - and quantity (at least for antipasti) less. This was a must stop for us while visiting arezzo - not anymore.

This restaurant is not fancy or upscale. But the food is very reasonably priced and delicious, as if the "mamma" is cooking for you. The service is fast so you can be in and out without waiting hours. A nice place for simple, but good dining.

Small, cozy, local, tasty, Italian - quite a good place and certainly professional in making a good veal steaks! I did not try the pasta, but some of my friends did and were happy with their choices. The wine list is somewhat limited, but you’ll not leave the place thirsty, especially if you like the reds. Location is very central... More

I loved the place. The food was simple and tasty. I loved especially the Fiorentina steak. The desert with chocolate and mascarpone wasn't good but in general I enjoyed very much.

I had several great meals here in a cozy environment with a lovely staff. The house red wine is great. Try the rabbit. Also had several types of terrific ravioli.

I had some very good gnocchi with truffles here in this cosy restaurant. The service was very good and the prices were very fair! I enjoyed this restaurant very much. Lots of great traditional Tuscan dishes. My friend had the duck, and it was delicious as well. English menus are available as well as Italian. The vinsanto and cantuccini are... More

We were so hungry our first night in Arezzo we were just looking for something lite- splitting a pasta and then a salad .we found this restaurant to be adequate but not more- food was not inspired and while we realize sometimes it is harder to bring panache to simple things, this seemed not to even try. Montepulchiano not a... More

I was treated badly by the lady who runs the place:she was very rude putting a lot of pressure on us to leave the table for other customers...moreover,the food is not so good and too expensive..The toilet also is far too small and quite dirty.Definitely,not good value for money

We were wandering around and realized we had kinda skipped lunch. I noticed this place had quite the turnout so we decided to give it a shot. Glad we did. We kept it relatively simple, tagliatelle al chinghalle and tagliatelle al fungi porcini, plus some lovely dolci (I'm a sucker for cantucinni con vin santo) and we had a great... More
