I had several great meals here in a cozy environment with a lovely staff. The house red wine is great. Try the rabbit. Also had several types of terrific ravioli.

I had some very good gnocchi with truffles here in this cosy restaurant. The service was very good and the prices were very fair! I enjoyed this restaurant very much. Lots of great traditional Tuscan dishes. My friend had the duck, and it was delicious as well. English menus are available as well as Italian. The vinsanto and cantuccini are... More

We were so hungry our first night in Arezzo we were just looking for something lite- splitting a pasta and then a salad .we found this restaurant to be adequate but not more- food was not inspired and while we realize sometimes it is harder to bring panache to simple things, this seemed not to even try. Montepulchiano not a... More

I was treated badly by the lady who runs the place:she was very rude putting a lot of pressure on us to leave the table for other customers...moreover,the food is not so good and too expensive..The toilet also is far too small and quite dirty.Definitely,not good value for money

We were wandering around and realized we had kinda skipped lunch. I noticed this place had quite the turnout so we decided to give it a shot. Glad we did. We kept it relatively simple, tagliatelle al chinghalle and tagliatelle al fungi porcini, plus some lovely dolci (I'm a sucker for cantucinni con vin santo) and we had a great... More

I had the pasta with truffles and parmesan sauce and it was really pasta with melted butter and dry mushrooms on top and no parmesan. It was the tasteless pasta I ate in Italy. We also had a caprese salad and the basil was black, very bad quality of the whole dish. For those, a small bottle of water and... More

Had a lovely typical Italian dinner here this summer. Fresh ravioli with tartufo, simple dish but so tasty! Did not make a reservation and were able to sit outside on the terrace. Was totally full when we left though.

This was a big disappointment. Dishes on menu then not available even early in the evening, carpaccio stringy and greasy, pork dried up, service grumpy, sat outside and repeatedly approached by flower sellers and others. There are lots of good places in Arezzo so don't go here.

I ate an awesome tipical soup, pasta and tagliata e porcini which is basically excellent meat served with big uncut special mushrooms (steinpilz in german). The food was incredibly tasty and served with excellent and not too expensive wine.

Thank Harald S
