Our favorite restaurant in Volterra. Located in the main piazza (Piazza Dei Priori) it offers both indoor and outdoor seating and an extensive menu from small plates to multi course dinners. Every meal surpassed our expectations. Indoor dining is in a beautifully decorated vaulted ceiling room like a 15th century palace. Outside dining is the perfect setting for people watching... More

Stupidly, because we were really hungry and lucky enough to arrive at a time when there were plenty of tables, instead of exploring the streets surrounding Volterra's main square as we usually would, we decided to try this place which is right opposite the main clock tower. Big mistake. Staff were not very friendly, though not rude. With so few... More

We had lunch here yesterday and was attracted by the pasta with truffle. Three of us ordered this. There's nothing to indicate we were eating truffles. There were lots of sand and grits on my so called truffle. The pasta had no other taste but butter. At the end I had to pick out my 'truffle ' and just ate... More

My wife and I were famished by time we arrived in Volterra having driven in from Siena. A welcoming restaurant with shady spot, cold San Pellegrino and truffles on the menu (my wife's tuscan requirement). We spent some time lingering over our meal and the bottle of Bulgari Varvara. Service was efficient professional. Give it a try.

Best customer service in whole Volterra I would say. They even have gluten-free pizza. Best restaurant.

On a rather bleak,wet day we rather fortunately stumbled into this restaurant. It was very busy with locals as well as a few tourists. A table was found and we had an enjoyable lunch in a in a rather noisy, bustling but cosy environment. The old fashioned decor of the room created just the right atmosphere for a lazy lunch... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch. We sat outdoors in the shade looking out on the sunny piazza. The pizza was good as were the salads. The service was a little slow, but that may have been because it was a busy time. Not a lunch I would go out of my way for but a good spot if... More

Sitting outside in the piazza is a must. This casual, reasonably priced restaurant was recommended to us by the front desk staff in the Hotel La Locanda, which shares the owner. We were also given a card to take to the restaurant for a 10% discount. The location in Piazza dei Priori is lovely (as are all locations in VOLTERRA.).... More

What is said about houses in general, is absolutely true about the Etruria: Location is everything. To be honest, we wouldn't have stayed at the place if we would have to had stayed inside as there were no tables available on the Piazza. The tables and chairs alone were off-putting, despite the nice building itself. However, Dining on the main... More
