We were here on a quiet evening. They specially set a table for us outside on the terrace at the back. A nice quiet location to enjoy dinner outside. They offer nice Italian food. The lamb stew was very tasteful. Friendly service and fair price...More

Although the menu looked good and prices were high, the food was indifferent - the place seemed not to be trying, perhaps because there is little local custom and most tourists only stay in the village one night. We had Chianina steak with porcini, which...More

I spent a week in Sovana and ate there almost every day because there was so much to eat, even as some one who does not eat gluten.

This restaurant should have been great. The location with three thousand years of history all around is amazing. This building looked atmospheric and we had high hopes after checking into the very indifferent hotel they are associated with. It wasn't to be - the restaurant...More

Taverna Etrusca sits in the corner of the splendid Preotorio Piazza, in the enchanting medieval town of Sovana, part of the Maremma Collinare. The old thirteenth century Palazzo del Pretorio that houses Taverna Etrusca was carefully renovated so that the restaurant continues to reflect all the beauty and authenticity of the original structure. Outside the coats of arms of the commissioners who ruled Sovana between 1484 and 1686 remain as symbols of the building’s illustrious past. Inside the restaurant’s atmosphere is intimate and refined, while still maintaining the strong architectural elements of the 13th century through it’s exposed beams and terracotta floors. Just off the main dining room is a small niche with one, very romantic table, allowing guests to dine in ultimate intimacy. During Spring and Summer, diners can enjoy the beautiful Tuscan weather on the alfresco terrace, where everything tastes better.
