We had a great pizza bolognese which we shared. It was perfect for just the two of us and we had coke to go along. Our total bill came to 15.40 euro. They have these nice booths outside of the restaurant where weather permitting you can sit 4 people comfortably and the plus side of this you get to see... More

After walking around in an ice-cold Volterra, the warm Dom Beta restaurant in Via Matteotti looked just like the right place for us, even if it was empty when we arrived. But the place soon filled up, and when we left next to two hours later, it was full on the ground floor – but apparently thye had more tables... More

Very cozy and fun atmosphere. We were lucky to get a table without a reservation. So many customers were turned away because the restaurant was full, and the customers were disappointed because they really wanted to dine here. The prices are affordable, so it's a win-win.

This restaurant was recommended as one of the better places to eat by our tour operator. Food and service were really good but we were kept amused by the waiters and the way they managed customers - the nonchalance and 'business like' and no nonsense approach was quite amusing. Great experience only spoilt by a party that all seemed to... More

The Resturant had been recommended to us. We had a nice table . The food was interesting and good . Service was very spoty. They didn't seem to have enough servers. Overall the pasta dishes were good , house wine as expected . Would have recommended higher if the service was better .

Wow such varied reviews. Can only speak for lunchtime. We had one of our best meals of our two weeks in Italy here today, albeit only lunch and for a fraction of the price of some other meals. Tonight is our last dinner before end of vacation and we are actually worried as to whether it will measure up to... More

The restaurant was completely full. The staff was so busy they forgot to guard the tables. We sat a long time waiting for an order to be taken.

We arrived here as a family of five having travelled from the Uk hoping for a good meal, but having read previous reviews we were fairly unsure as the reviews are so varied. I can honestly say that we had a truly delicious meal here and good service throughout the evening. We had pizza and some tomato bread starters. I... More

We went in after seeing they had a large selection of pasta on the menu, and we wanted a hassle free dinner with the kids. The kids had Spaghetti Bolognese and we tried the cheese with nuts and honey for starter, and Spaghetti with garlic, oil and chili, and Penne all arrabbiata. However it was served as Spaghetti all arrabbiata...... More

Downstairs has some atmosphere, but upstairs feels a bit like a cafe. Definately not a place to go for a romantic dinner, the radio was on so loud that it was like eating in a waiting room. Never understand restuarants who play awful music loud to try and create an atmosphere, as opposed to let their dinner have conversations. Lighting... More
