We had Pizza Marinara and Risotto with Pulpo. The Pizza wasn' t good and they wanted one Euro more for it than for a Pizza Magherita(which has cheese, Marinara is just Tomatosauce). On top of the portion of risotto was one small piece of pulpo. There was no pulpo in the risotto and there were no spices added. The waitress... More

We found this restaurant whilst looking for Palazzo Viti during a day trip to Volterra. The food was excellent and the manager told us the staff are well informed about food intolerance. An excellent mushroom risotto was prepared for our gluten intolerant daughter who has other food intolerance as well. She also enjoyed some very tender beef and fries which... More

This restaurant is situated in the basement of a wine cellar. It has a fairly expensive menu with average priced food and drink. For our tastes they used a great deal more olive oil then we are used to so the food tasted on the greasy side. The starter of a selection on hot meats and bread was very good.... More

Having eaten here three evenings, I became fond of the true Tuscany traditions of this region. Wild Boar, guinea hen, pomodoro soup, white beans, Tuscan bread, extra virgin superb olive oil and of course Sangiovese and Chianti wines, are just some of the favorites you must try! In Volterra the tasty cuisine are plentiful, however, the unique terrain of intimate... More

Good service, nice wine and excellent food. Try the Risotto or Peposo (a traditional food). There is a place outside and inside.

Food was just okay and reasonably priced. However service is horribly slow. We also did not receive any bread when other tables did.

Found Le Cantine when just wondering around Volterra. We were the only non-Italians and were welcomed by the owners as family. Great local wine and awesome pasta. Highly recommend when in Volterra.

The six of us wondered into Volterra looking for an outside place to enjoy a meal. This turned out the be an outstanding choice. the menu is very varied and everyone had a different entre'. Every one was very tasty. My wild boar stew had to be some family recipe as it was delicious. Service was good, and, for the... More
