“Zero-food-miles Tuscan cuisine”

Volterra Restaurant

One of the strong points of our restaurant in Volterra is the choice of raw materials: wherever possible, we select and use zero-food-miles products and ingredients for the creation of our dishes and when we decide to include other seasonal ingredients in our menus, we make sure they are authentic and certified.

The restaurant is located inside Il Palagetto, in a panoramic position with a view over the hills of Volterra.

“I have the simplest tastes; I am always satisfied with the best.”
(Oscar Wilde)

The theme of our cuisine is simple, we offer guests typical dishes based on the cuisine of Tuscany and Volterra.

Such as?  Crostini alla Volterrana, Lardo di Colonnata, pappardelle with wild boar or hare, spelt soup, steak “alla fiorentina, mixed grills, tasty local pecorino cheese and homemade desserts, all washed down with excellent wines such as Chianti and Vernaccia di San Gimignano.

What can we tempt you with?

Here is a brief sample…

Opinions on our kitchen




We visited this evening and had one of the most amazing meals we have had during our stay in Italy. The food was of the highest quality, service friendly and sincere, and the view was very romantic looking over the rolling hills of Tuscany toward the walled historic town of Volterra. The wine was exceptional and the meal exceptional value


Stunning location and great food

Stayed for one night last week. Location is beautiful - postcard Tuscan rolling hills. Sat outside for a pre-dinner with a fabulous local wine looking out at the sunset. Great dinner in the restaurant -Tuscan traditional dishes including wild boar.


A delightful stay. Loved the location and food

Fantastic location with wonderful views. Lovely infinity pool. Fresh local cuisine.



We have spent 2 nights in October. The place is well located to visit near by town such as Volterra. It has a 360 degrees nice view. Service was perfect on all points of view, they are accommodating customers requests very efficiently
