We dined outside in sunny weather. We started with appetizers and wine. My friend had beef layered with spinach and I had pasta topped with truffle. We were served with complimentary tiramisu and cookies. All delicioso. Service was great. A little pricey but worth it.

The food was so so, and the service was terrible. They sat us at the only table in the direct sun and when we politely asked to move to a vacant shady table the owner became belligerent and flatly refused our request. The server had a terrible cold and sneezed on my wife and then sneezed again into his hand... More

Visited here for lunch on a day trip to Arezzo. Food was very good quality. Service was average. Wine was superb. Not cheap but good value. Recommended.

This restaurant is on the main square in Arezzo so it isn't going to be cheap. We liked the look of the "light lunch" menu featuring pastas etc that make a good lunch. The individual dishes are priced a few euros higher than we'd been used to. Attentive service with one of the nicest bread baskets we came across, an... More

This was even worse than what you can expect from a lunch in the center of a toeristic place in high toerism season... Late drinks; Long waiting; Dull overcoocked food; No tasty Food; Really dull salad; No whine coming up (after asking twice); No water coming up; No question: do you like the food?; No directions on how to pay.......

We went here for lunch in the main piazza of Arezzo. The restaurant seemed quite empty and posh. The staff weren't the easiest to talk to as the language barrier was hard to get over and we didn't know what we were doing. We ordered from the "light" lunch menu when I say "light" I mean appetisers and deserts that... More

We originally decided to have a quick, light lunch here but that changed when we arrived. In most other restaurants we had been in on our 2 week vacation in Tuscany the staff spoke enough English for us to order exactly what we wanted but this restaurant was much more difficult. the staff did not seem to understand and even...

The restaurant overlooks the medieval Piazza Grande in Arezzo . Large umbrellas protect us from the searing July sunshine but a lovely breeze comes down the Via Vasari, making this a perfect venue for lunch. The tables are all set with beautiful white tablecloths and place settings and the staff were attentive but not obtrusive. Lovely additions such as a... More

A wonderful location on the best Arezzo square. The service is of very high quality, with lots of attention to people. The dishes are really good, very well presented. There are lots of unexpected additional pieces such amuse bouches, chocolates, fantastic house made cookies. Good location for large family event (we were 15) or romantic diner with your partner. Can't... More
