We had a very nice dinner at this restaurant for our last night in Italy. The restaurant is centrally located in the town of Volterra so if you are staying there it should be very nearby.

We were treated to great service, cuisine and a wine list that has all the price points and varietals you could wish for. Since truffles were in season, we had blue potato gnocchi with pecorino romano cheese topped by black truffles, wow! The service was professional, courteous and friendly. Having a table visit by the owner is always a welcome... More

From the outside it is not so inviting to go inside... but please do!! You will meet the owners (forgot their names); a passionate wine connoisseur and his wife cooking the most fantastic Italian food! I had one of the best starters I ever tasted: melted parmaggiano with fresh truffle... delicious.. (don't mind the calories now!) Fresh pastas, delicious wines..... More

If you can successfully navigate the twisting, climbing roads to get to Volterra, you deserve a great meal when you arrive. You will find it at Osteria dei Poeti, a charming, traditional eatery located on one of the main streets of the village.

Arrived in Volterra in the height if the white truffle season. This was the place to eat fresh white truffle. First dish simply shaven onto a lightly baked egg, second dish of home made taglioni tossed in Truffle Butter with shaven fresh white truffle, Heaven. Local classy white wine suggested and it was perfect.

This is a top notch family run business. The wife is the chef, and husband is on the floor. He has a great personality, very helpful, and talkative. The food was delicious. I recommend making reservations.

We loved the ambiance here and Luca was very friendly and helpful as we tried to decide what to order. We had a late lunch so were looking for a light dinner. High recommendations from the owner of the apartment we stayed at and we were not disappointed. Started with a complimentary soup tasting followed by

We ate a couple of typical Tuscany courses and we were amazed by the quality of both the food and the service. Definitely have to come back.
