Absolutely atrocious customer service. If you are not a local, they will not seat you and say they are "full," even though there were at least 20 open tables with no one there. Apparently, discrimination is encouraged against tourists. This establishment should be ashamed.

Just on the fringes of Arezzo is the Osteria da Giovanna and for authentic Tuscan this is the place to go. Sunday lunch is special to Tuscan families and they head to Giovanna in their droves which can only mean great food, great atmosphere and...More

Everything just right, apart from restraining me from the crispy potatoes that were not available the bistecca is amazing as well as the pasta specially the Picci that it's not easy to find it in many places, they recommend me a great wine

The recommendation came from a local, and it was spot on: tasty genuine disches, fresh ingredients and an ample selection of especially Tuscan wines - what does one want more? It's trattoria-style so don't expect a fancy setting, but what counts is what comes in...More

What can I say about this place..... Go. Enjoy. Be amazed. It's literally a house on the side of the road, understated, hardly a sign to say there is an osteria here. Mum and dad run the place, mum and grandma cook, dad does the...More

We mistakenly booked a B&B that was not in Arezzo centre but this restaurant was recommended and did not disappoint. Full of local diners and serving typical Tuscan fare. The owners daughter had worked in London so spoke fluent English but tolerated my attempts at...More
