Don't be fooled by the location and the decor of this place. Although the waiters were friendly and the thousands of bottles of wine on the shelves give it that classic Italian look, the food is repulsive. As soon as the pizza came, I know...More

This place serves ribollita which is like a red rag to a bull for a vegetarian. We skipped the antipasti and went straight for the minestre, a ribollita and a zuppa di funghi porcini, both excellent. This was the first time I have had the...More

Arezzo is great for food and this was a reasonable and quality restaurant that, in winter at least, is not too crowded.

You have to be prepared to wait for a table, but it is well worth it. Family run with three generations there that day. We ate local specialities and we were really happy and content with the food and the prices.

This trattoria is located just next door to another popular trattoria, L'Agania. We tried both. The food is excellent in both locations, but we preferred Il Saraceno for its calmer atmosphere and more professional service. Our host was very patient with our limited language skills...More

We have been here for a lunch and ordered starters for us, pizza for the kids. Food was OK, ambience was nice. The place is fairly priced but two eur coperto for each (totalling 8 eur) was annoying. But remember, coperto is added to bill...More

I went for lunch & had the gnocchi & I was pretty underwhelmed. It would have been great by US standards but as far as meals in Italy go, it was just so-so. The service was great, though; everyone on the staff was super friendly.
