The list is long so you might have a problem to choose what to eat. But do not worry, anything you pick up will taste very good! An extra bonus is a possibility to visit the ancient etruscan cellars under the location, marvelous!

Well worth a visit if you pass through or visit Chiusi for lunch. The food is interesting and very good, portions are large, and the selection good and interesting. Wine list is good and suprising for italian restaurant all appear to be actual available. The staff were very helpful and we will certainly be back.

Located in upper Chiusi this is a great place to stop for a meal after touring the Etruscan museum and other sites. A very friendly waitstaff will bring you good, simple and honest food. It's a very nice spot to relax and be at ease.

As we have been there for three times all of them were better than the other. As value for money wise definitely good choice .As for the taste of food I can give full thumbs up. Well done Zaira.

We come to Tuscany ever year and have eaten at Zaira for the past 5 years. We were so excited to return to this favorite restaurant in Chiusi. While it is still good, we were very disappointed to find that there is a new owner, so the menu has totally changed. Many of the delicious dishes that we always ordered... More

We ate here back in 2003. The food and wine still memorable as with the tour by the owner of the Etruscan tunnel system underneath the restaurant which now houses the owners priceless wine collection.

we stayed only one night in Chiusi and we went to this old style trattoria in the center of Chiusi. We took a 1.4 Kg fiorentina (we were two) The meat was absolutely superb, one of the best I have ever eaten in Tuscany. The household red wine was excellent. The Service by a young lady was accurate and friendly.... More

We had a large group and no one was disappointed. The food was good, and when one friend was unhappy with his meal, it was graciously replaced. The owner allowed us into a unique wine cellar housing his personal collection of fine wines. Truly worth a stop.

appetizers, excellent pasta-go for the pesto lasagna-just like my mother's/ bistecca was too tough and grisly. Dolci good.

Clearly the most upscale restaurant in Chiusi, but only a fraction more expensive than the rest. We ordered local food, and it is the owner, Fabio, who cooks, and his daughter who waits on you (the name Zaira comes from Fabio's grandmother). The food is very well prepared and tasty (not rich at all) and the wine list impressive and... More
