Went here with my girlfriend for lunch. The restaurant is situated at the back of the shop filled to the brim with Italian specialities, it has a really authentic and cozy atmosphere.
We had cold cuts of ham and boar and brochettes. Usually, when I order these types of dishes, I find some of the cuts of lower quality, but this was simply the best cold cuts I have tasted, served with really good and dry glass of whine, which was a perfect compliment.
The bruschettes were also very god, the olive and truffle oil they use are just exquisite.
Overall, simple and fantastic quality food where the ingredients really comes to its own.

Would recommend what we had to anyone

Very generous servings and perfectly cooked. The service was friendly and attentive. They have a ten per cent service charge but even with that the bill was very reasonable. Do not buy the expensive wines as the cheaper ones are superb.

Stopped to see and ended up with wine and cheese. The small store was full of aromatic smells. People there were wonderful. This isn't a restaurant, but it had lots of delights to choose from for our dinner.

We were hungry and thirsty - were going to go to a restaurant - then we saw this place. Picked up a bottle of wine, olives, cheese and meat. All were delicious - so glad we chose to stop here

Volterra is a beautiful place. We came here on a weekday and there were some tourists, but it's far from being overcrowded. A great place to spend a few hours.

Strolling around we got quite a bit hungry. Then we came across this place. And I remembered reading good reviews about it, so we went for it.

It's a mix between a small restaurant (just a handful of tables in the back) and a butchery / deli shop.

There's plenty of fresh cut meats to choose from (Salami, Ham, Sausages) and it also has a good range of sweets and cookies and lots of other products. Either eat-in other take-away (bring home).

We took a seat in the back and ordered a plate of cut meats with Crostinis for just 10 Euro. And a small bottle of Prosecco for 7 Euro. The meat was really good. Presentation nice. Way above you average Salami and Ham. Nice spices and flavours.

Besides the sweets they also sell lots of other special italian products. Olive Oil, Limoncello and other liquors and lots of truffle products (truffle honey, truffle spread with parmesan etc.), also chutneys, jam and much more. All really good stuff! We bought quite a bunch of their products to bring home and they taste fantastic.

Service / staff was really great and helpful and took a lot of time explaining their products. And - quite unusual for this kinda place - our dog was welcome too. They even brought a huge bowl of water for her.

A great great place. Really the kind of place you wanna spend an hour or two in Italy. Highly recommended!
