Easy to spot with the word "Organic" above the canopy visible from the top of the street most frequented by tourists, this place provides a clean smart alternative to the standard Tuscan fare plied at many of the town's eateries. The menu reflects the restaurant's guiding principles of vegetarianism and local sourcing. There's not a great deal of choice but as is often the case, this indicates that the dishes are freshly prepared, and in this respect we were not disappointed. Spaghetti comes with freshly prepared tomato sauce with a touch of refreshing lemon; home-made falafels, which were lozenge-shaped, were accompanied by fresh mixed salad and a lemon-tinted vegan "mayo". The plate of pecorino wedges - fresh and tasty - and their honey sauce provided a sweet contour . The highlight though was the locally produced Terre de Pepe red wine, full and round but blackcurranty and drinkable. Price was about right for a smartish Italian restaurant and the staff were correct, coping with quite a few customers, few of whom were able to speak Italian. The streetside terrace gives a good view of the crowd trudging up from the Etruscan gate at the foor of the hill, while inside the Etruscan theme is maintained by the ancient foundations visible through the glass floor. The toilet door catch needs fixing! But niggles aside, this is overall, a good place for a light, pleasant lunchtime taste of Volterra.
