“smiling service and tasty food.”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

I had lunch here, sitting outside.
Nothing was too much trouble - a table was quickly prepared for me; all requests for water, wine, and for oil and balsamic vinegar to eat with the bread were promptly fulfilled, The food was presented very well and was very tasty.
The service was very good - just the right amount of attention - everything done with a friendly smile.
I'd eat again here, should I ever return to Volterra.

“Good food can't overcome surly service at Il Sacco Fiorentino”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

Imagine David Walliams (the tall one) from TV's "Little Britain" as one of his most patronizing, put-upon, eye-rolling "customer service" characters. This is your waiter, who at Il Sacco Fiorentino responds to your every request with a flashed smile/grimace that fairly drips contempt. Having fun yet?

Our party of six adults sought this place out based on recommendations from Rick Steves and, I think, Frances Mayes in one of her books on Tuscany.

The good: prices were fair and the food was well-prepared.
The bad: I don't care how good the food is, a restaurant where the waiter needs a smack isn't a place where I want to spend my money.

It's hard to believe that there aren't much better dining experiences to be had in Volterra.

“Be careful - orders do not always match with what you are served”
Reviewed 11 July 2011

You have to wait for a long time and they forget to bring you oil and vinegar in time. Then they serve you the main dish which is different from what you order. The boss promises you a discount but then issues the full amount in the bill. Very unpleasant staff and dishonest boss. Do not recommend this restaurant because of the poor quality of service and lack of honesty of owners.
