We knew nothing about Porcellino but as we walked passed it was quite busy so we just went for it. We were given a nice table on the street immediately. The choices, price, and Staff were outstanding and the food was perfect. We all had pasta dishes, mine included rabbit ragu. The four of us were exceptionally satisfied and the house wine was perfect as well. We'd definitely return if we're in Volterra again.

A highlight of our holiday. Beautiful evening seated outside by highly attentive staff. Both Cosimo and Salah were fantastic. Ravioli was fresh and tagliatelle with rabbit so beautiful. The house wine is really good. The tiramisu was the best I have ever had. Please try this place it is wonderful.

In volterra, this is probably the best food place. Although our eyes caught by several amazing fresh panini corners, gelatos and cocktail places which were hard to miss. This place was recommended to us by family and we were not disappointed. Pastas were breathe taking, gnocchi and cheese platter were amazing.
Service and guest welcoming was on the top.
If you have amazing place, view, weather, best company and amazing food, you dont need anything else.we loved it.

We were walking through the cobbled streets on a boiling day. Just stopping off during a long journey through Tuscany and thought we’d stop off and look for a nice place for lunch.
This place caught our eye but was full, after a 5 min wait we managed to get a seat.
Initially the service was a bit slow with different waiters telling us they’d be there in a second. That was the only thing negative I could possibly say though.
The service after this was all good and the food was pretty amazing. We had some pizzas which were particularly tasty.
Recommend if in the city a great place for lunch and probably any other meal.

We went here because it was the only place open that looked decent at the time we wanted to eat. This isn’t my normal approach and I was therefore a little nervous, as I hadn’t checked the reviews at all. The menu is simple but explains the pasta is fresh and made in house, so we each chose a pasta dish. Both were absolutely beautiful and we definitely were not disappointed. The waiter was very friendly and brought us a glass of prosecco on arrival, a basket of bread with olive oil and then a small bowl of gazpacho with mozzarella (absolutely beautiful) all on the house before we started. We loved this place and would definitely return if we were staying closer by. Thank you to the staff for a lovely evening meal.
