If you happen to be in Volterra, this cozy little restaurant might be the perfect place to have lunch or dinner. As most of the restaurants in Tuscany, this one os family-owned and family-run, and if you get lucky, you might even have sweet Irene or her mom waiting on your table. Food is great, wine selection is as good as it gets (if you're into tuscan wines) and the atmosphere is very inviting. I'm definitely coming back!

The outdoor seating in a small side street caught our eye. We were looking for a light lunch but changed our minds when we saw Il Poggio's menu.

Our server was extremely conscientious. My husband and I both chose the "medieval menu" and had a simple but delicious chicken meal, with pecorino cheese and honey as the dessert. Inside the restaurant looks lovely as well.

Great food, great service, great location! Thanks Il Poggio.

We stopped for lunch at this restaurant with our trip guides and ended up having a really great meal and delightful experience. The owner is really proud of her food, and it shows. She was a real delight, and the staff was excellent.

We have spent our holiday in Volterra for 3 years now and found this restaurant Il Poggio.
Every night we came back there for 2 weeks.
Excellent food, a lot of choice, great wine and all for a good and reasonable price.
All the people over there are very very nice, work hard and they make you feel at home !!!
This year we spent our holiday in Passignano, but of course we went to visit our favourite restaurant in Volterra, 2 hours to drive, but really worth it !!!
We got a heart warming welcome and again very good food. We also loved the special desserts.
So we can highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
