“Outstanding- The Best Of Meal Our Weekend in Tuscany”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

We actually went to Locanda il Boschetto mistakenly, thinking it was another osteria just down the road from it. But, what a great mistake it turned out to be, this family owned restaurant, excelled in food and service. We started with the regional vegetable soup, and then moved on to some great secondi, including, boar chicken, pasta and pork.
The service was unbeatable, with the staff answering any questions and making a lot of helpful suggestions. The food was a bit slow to come out, but was well worth the wait.
If your driving down SR68 and spot this place, pull in for a great meal!

“The best in Tuscany!”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

The best in Tuscany truely decribes this restaurant along SR 68 in Volterra, the family that owns the restaurant, takes pride in serving only the best in the region. They specialize in local food fare, including Wild Boar, Hare, and seasonal entrees. We enjoyed a local mushroom salad,as part of our eating excitement, which was the highlight of our last evening in Tuscany, The wine selection of local wineries is extended and we tried a reserve wine that we ended up going to the vineyard the next day to buy more bottles.

If you are ever in Tuscany, its well worth the drive, A true diamond in the rough!
