Nice, typical Italian place right across from the ancient fort turned prison. Pleasant and prompt service. Friendly house wine. Here's the important part - order the wild boar with fresh, "small" pasta. Sublime! We've had hundreds of dishes in Italy, and most of them have been quite nice, but this one was crazy good!

Dropped in for a late lunch, which ended up being close to when the kitchen was closing for the afternoon, but they catered to us anyway. The friendly staff put together a delicious and authentically Italian lunch for us: antipasto, Tuscan soup and fresh lasagna. Food was fresh and delicious, and the whole experience was like being well hosted by... More

Wonderful family run Osteria inside Porta a Seici. Fresh pasta, Volterran soup, warm friendly service. A bit off the beaten path, but this is a not to miss spot. Look for the three chairs and a bicycle outside the door.

Touristic trip to Volterra with a group of 60 friends stopping for dinner in the Osteria La Pace. Excellent food and wine in a rustic Tuscany place. Owners very kind and funny. It will be interesting to get back in future with family.

We ate lunch here twice during our week in Volterra. Came back for the pasta with wild boar sauce (pici con cinghiali) and the vegetable soup with bread included (Zuppe Volterana or Riboletta). Portions are large. House wine was fine. Decor is rustic, unpretentious inside a typical vaulted ceiling of central Volterra. Service friendly. A veal, calamari in cream sauce... More

This Osteria was recommended by the proprietors of our Albergo and we had a delicious meal. The Pici con cinghiale was particularly yummy. Our server was delightful, entertaining and attentive. We had a wonderful evening at Osteria La Pace and would definitely return. Gracie!

We have been visiting Volterra for more than twenty years, and have generally eaten in restaurants in the centre of the town. However last weekend when Volterra was exceptionally busy, we parked away from the centre and came across this restaurant whilst making our way to one of our favourite shops. The food is very Tuscan, but the antipasti were... More

Wonderful service at this quiet restaurant near one of the historic gates to the city. The spaghetti was the best we had in Italy.

Lovely atmosphere. Full of locals as well as tourists. Waiting staff very friendly. Enjoyed the atmosphere of people stopping to chat on the way past.The starter of cold meats and bruschetta was very good. I wanted to order the chicken with parmesan with white wine to drink, but the waiter persuaded me to try a Tuscan dish of beef with... More
