This really off the beaten track bottega is not to be missed! Amazing, authentic Tuscan food that is made fresh by mama in the kitchen (seriously) and served by son Leonardo in a tiny but warm and welcoming atmosphere. Eight of us ate there last night and we all agreed that this would be the most memorable experience of our 10 day Tuscan trip. The food was made to order and mama was able to accommodate 2 of our group with food sensitivities and allergies so everyone was able to have wonderful, hot, fresh, traditional Tuscan food without any compromises or disappointments. And their wine offerings (all local and Tuscan) were impressive for such a small restaurant! Make reservations because there are not many tables but is is so worth the trip to Dudddova!

Thank you very much for your presence in Duddova for two nights with the opening of excellent Tuscan wines and a joy of wanting to eat typical local dishes difficult to find among the customers. Truly an honor to have served you. An immense hug from the whole family of La Bottega di Duddova. See you next time, good return to America big group!

It might seem in the middle of nowhere but Duddova is very close to places like Arezzo, The Chianti, Siena etc. This is the only outlet there, it is very simple and with no more than half a dozen tables. The food is however excellent and the welcome very warm and familiar. Prices very normal as well. highly recommended.

This might seriously be the best restaurant on the planet. We were here five years ago and have dreamed of returning. Last time we sat outside on a fabulous fall evening. Today was a chilly and windy Spring afternoon so we sat inside.

Both locations are wonderful. We were greeted by Lorenzo and made to feel welcome. We had the bruchetta to start. Ravioli and fennel pasta for lunch. Everything was prepared with love and quality by Momma in the kitchen.

Wine recommendations complimented the meals.

We truly felt like we were sitting in someone's kitchen while the family lovingly made us lunch. The next visit won't be five years!

We we walked to our car, Momma opened the window and gave us a wave. It doesn't get better than this.

Ciao!

If you want a really small but wonderful spot for a traditional Italian lunch, then this is a place you must visit. The food is simple but absolutely delicious and very very reasonably priced. The place was packed with locals as well which is always a good sign!

We had the bruchettas and then the truffle pasta and a ragu pasta - amazing!!

We'll be going back there for sure!
