Just had dinner here ... just fabulous! 3 pasta dishes and a pizza between us with tomato on bread to start. All really good. House wine was €3 a glass, very nice and great value. Helpful staff. Would recommend.

We stopped in for lunch while wandering through Volterra and had a nice meal. It's a "cozy" place and definitely thought it the food was pretty good.

We had a great pizza bolognese which we shared. It was perfect for just the two of us and we had coke to go along. Our total bill came to 15.40 euro. They have these nice booths outside of the restaurant where weather permitting you...More
