Cool place, charming staff, good prices!
Sep 2020
We were greeted by a friendly lady behind the desk, who told us everything we wanted to know about truffels ... and much more! :-)) Simply wonderful!
Great selsction of different products ... all very nicely displayed and the prices are comparing to other shops in tuscan cities like San Gimingiano or Firenze very modest.
We will be back for the Truffle Hunting Experience in 2021!

Incredible truffle products!
Aug 2019 • Family
Boutique del Tartufo is a shop located in the old town of Volterra, a wonderful medieval town in Tuscany Region, in Italy. Here you can buy and taste some truffle products. Really, if you are a gourmet or a truffle-lover, here you can taste and excellent quality products with truffle like a focaccia di pecorino e tartufo nero (focaccia with pecorino cheese and black teuffle) or a focaccia di funghi e tartufo bianco (focaccia with mushrooms and white truffle). Very recommendable to buy local products (with truffle obviously).

Quaint Family Store

What a wonderful family run store in Volterra. A tasty array of Truffle Products. We bought some Truffle Oil and Truffles in oil to take back home. They are a terrific reminder of our visit to Tuscany.

Drop by and be amazed at the information you will learn.

Truffle hunting first!
Aug 2019
Really lovely family that own the shop, we had heard about the truffle hunting trips and decided to book. This proved the best morning of the holiday - great to see Argo (the spaniel) working who found us our 5 truffles. This proved to be a really very interesting and informative trip but with fun! Thanks Stefanie and Danieala!

Gorgeous intense flavoured truffles.

Called into this shop for a panini. The shop assistant explained all about the truffle products, and then went on to make us a cheese, salami, truffle butter, and shaved truffles panini. This was the nicest panini I've experienced in Italy this trip. Absolutely gorgeous

Hidden treasure!
Jul 2017 • Family
We walked in by chance and what a find it was: all kind of specialities with truffles (oil, cheese, honey), a very professional service, recommendations, samples - perfect! Bought multiple jars of goodness and my wife had to literally drag me out of there. If you like truffles, find this boutique!

A successful truffle hunt!
Jul 2017 • Couples
We were scheduled to go truffle hunting while we were in Umbria, but the vendor canceled on us because it rained! So we researched Tripadvisor and found Stefania and Daniele, and we would not have been happier! They were easy to communicate with to book the trip (we used e-mail, text and phones with no problem). Because we went in July, they recommended that we start and finish early as the dog (and us) would not be happy in the heat of the Tuscan sun.

They met us at a local restaurant and we caravaned to the edge of a local forest. There, Daniele introduced us to Argo, who, though still in training, was a an excellent truffle hunter! He found one so fast that we almost thought it was a setup, but then it took longer to find the other four summer truffles (for a total of 5). Not only was the trip relaxing and educational, but as dog lovers, we were thrilled to watch the special relationship between the dog and Daniele, who is training him. He explained the whole training process, and helped focus Argo on the best spots to search. The walk was very easy and did not involve any real climbing; just a flat walk.

It was fascinating to see how Argo reacted when he found the truffles, and Daniele knew immediately when Argo found one.

The fun continued after the truffle hunt. We went back to Volterra and went to the truffle shop. We bought a bunch of items, and Stefania threw in a few freebies.

Then, she arranged for us to eat at a local restaurant, which incorporated one of the big truffles Argo found into a four-course meal that was spectacular!

I highly recommend this truffle hunt; if you can't go, at least stop by their shop as they are very warm and welcoming people with excellent truffle products!

Truffles at your choice
Jul 2017 • Family
Fresh, boiled or in oil. Brown, white or black ... what do you prefer? The staff explains every little detail so you can chose the truffle you want for your next dinner at home. The scent and taste of the truffles in the shop was excellent, hope the one I got will as good 😊.

This place is for tartufo lovers
Jul 2017 • Family
Walk in by chance, the place is a bit out of the main street so you must pay attention to find.
We tasted the honey and tartufo and was really delicious.
The owner is very informative and shows the passion she has for this business. The husband is the tartufo hunter and together make a good team.
I highly recommend at least walk in and try the free samples they offer.
We walked away happy with our purchases.

Wonderful Truffle Hunting Experience
May 2017 • Couples
What a great day!!! The owners of Boutique del Tarfufo took us into the woods near Volterra on a truffle-hunting excursion. It was a day we will never forget. Stefania was our English-speaking guide while her husband and their truffle-hunting dog, Patto, made the morning an experience we will never forget. Patto found four truffles that morning. Stefania was very informative and explained everything as we went along following the dog.

The truffle hunt was followed by a lunch featuring truffles at Agriturismo il Mulinaccio. Again a wonderful experience. The food was delicious, the owners absolutely charming, and the farmhouse beautiful. We were the only people in the farmhouse/restaurant at the time. Our own private truffle lunch!!!

Following the lunch Stefania took us to her boutique in Volterra where we experienced a few of her truffle products. We bought a few to enjoy back at our timeshare that evening. They were delicious.

This day was the highlight of our entire trip!! This is an experience not to be missed.
