“Charming restaurant in Volterra, Italy”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

We visited Volterra at the end of March 2013 and chanced upon this lovely little restaurant before 7pm, when it was still empty of customers, so worried that we might have made a mistake choosing to eat there. However, after ordering, the place began filling up quickly. The entire meal was perfect, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere warm and inviting. The menu features homemade entrees (their gnocchi is fantastic), appertivo and desserts, including a delicious tiramasu, which we ordered to share and thoroughly enjoyed. The hill city of Volterra is a very interesting place and Ristorante Da Beppino was the topper to a great visit.

“Third visit and still great!”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

This was our third visit to da Beppino, and as usual we left very very happy! The menu is typical Tuscan fare, which is what we are always in search of - food typical of the region. Both my husband and I had seafood that was very fresh and beautifully prepared. Volterra is only 25 km from the sea! The restaurant is family run and our waiter this time was the owner's son, Antonio. Our waiter Nelo, from two years ago remembered us and greeted us with smiles of recognition! There is outdoor seating, but we prefer to sit inside surrounded by the many bottles of wine lining the walls. The food is excellent, service outstanding, the wine list is extensive - and you're in Tuscany. What more could one want!!!!

“A real disappointment”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend but certainly wouldn't continue the recommendations. We were a group of 6 people and although the outside tables were quite busy, we were the only ones inside, so the waiters weren't 'run off their feet' and yet their lack of attention to us certainly gave that impression. The food was average: more of a tourist version of Italian food than a real trattoria experience. The food was slow and the waiters were arrogant and unapologetic. Generally it was an uncomfortable and disappointing experience.

“Truffles and mature wine - the best of Tuscany”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

We arrived after 8pm in Volterra and didn't want to spend too much time wandering around finding the ideal restaurant - da Beppino didn't disappoint. Service was courteous and efficient, and the food excellent. If you like truffle they have quite a few items for you. We particularly enjoyed the tagliate with truffle (lots of truffle), and the risotto with ceps. A half bottle of a nice 2004 red was priced very reasonably. re

The only improvement would have been to notch down the aircon a couple of degrees.

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

We stumbled upon this restaurant after the one we intended to eat at was closed for the weekend. I checked it on trip advisor and found it had a pretty good rating, and we were right across the street. There is a small but lovely eating area outside and it was a beautiful night. We were very lucky to get the last table outside. We shared the local mixed starter (meats, pecorino cheese with honey and jam, and crostini) and a mix of meat as recommended by the host, both were very tasty. Both the host and waiter were very friendly and accommodating, their English was very good and met our every need. While there was no house wine, we shared a half bottle of local white wine that was recommended by the server, which was very good and reasonably priced.

For my main dish I chose the chicken and potatoes, which also came with a small simple salad. Very tasty! The chicken was so tender and juicy, I was in heaven! I loved that it was so simple yet so good, there was just enough seasoning on the chicken to compliment it but not enough to cover the natural flavours, molto buono :). And of course rosemary potatoes, you can't go wrong. My partner had tagliata di manzo, beef strips, with greens and cheese. He was also very happy with his dish.

The desserts sounded good, but I can never seem to leave enough room! I would love to go back some time and try their ice cream flambe. When I told the server how much I loved the pecorino cheese, he advised me that they sell it in the shop next door. Very convenient! Overall, a nice surprise and a great experience. Also affordable prices, I would highly recommend!
