“excellent tiramisu”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

We always go here at least once every time we visit Volterra, and this year was no exception. Their wild boar is excellent, and the first time I tried their tiramisu I thought it must be the best in the world. Theirs is of the more liquid variety, so if you prefer the firm cake-type you may disagree, but to me it is still the best. The waiters look like they are really enjoying their work.

“Very good local lunch”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

We decided for this place as it was a little off the main square and looked promising. We were not disappointed. We were treated to excellent local cuisine (fresh fish and spagetti al chianti) and very professional service. The place was very clean and staff very nice (apparently family-run restaurant), repeatedly enquiring about our satisfaction. We recommend this place for a good lunch.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed 18 May 2013 via mobile

Had a delicious lunch. Service was great and they were super friendly. When we asked for a cheese plate of the menu they made us one with local cheese made by the servers husband! A very good experience.

Went to Ombra on the second day it was opened and it was wonderful. It's great to have Michael back cooking such delicious food.

“OK Food, unfriendly people”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

The pizza and pasta were just OK. Very average.

Server and Host were both very unhappy the whole evening.

And they add 10% service charge (but they do list it on the menu).

The bill was very reasonable in the end.

A lot of locals there, and seemed to think it was a great deal.
