Our Restaurant is renowned for the preparation of pappardelle pasta, soups including the traditional ribollita, panzanella salad, game, and fish, dishes that have always been part of traditional Tuscan cuisine. We are very much linked to our territory and we also transmit our passion here, in the homelike preparation of the dishes, the homemade pasta, the desserts, and the care with which we choose genuine, top quality ingredients. To complement the dishes prepared directly by us, our menu includes the good cheeses and delicious cold cuts produced in the area. We also offer special celiac or vegetarian menus. In this Hotel with Restaurant you will also enjoy having lunch here in summer because the rooms are climate-controlled; the restaurant can host approximately 50 diners. In the adjacent Bar, with the illusion created by the beautiful artistic fresco that resembles a window opening over Volterra, hotel guests may enjoy a delicious Buffet breakfast. We are well known for our cart of homemade sweets.
