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.

We went to Il Pozzo Degli Etruschi based on the recommendation of a friend of ours (always the best way to find good restaurants). The steaks they serve are amazing, especially the steak with herbs and local bacon. The caprese salad is quite mediocre, especially...More

In a country with phenomenal places to eat, this was average. While we understand that we do not speak Italian, this was also the ONLY restaurant (or hotel, B&B, shop, etc.) where they refused to speak English. What made that circumstance worse was the servers...More

Was there bevause of the good reviews … bad exprience! The wine was sour, the food really tasteless. Aditionally we had a hair in the ravioli. The seating is tiny and uncomfortable… and quite dirty except of the tables. overall - avoid.
