This restaurant has it all, though it may be unknown due to its location. It provides excellent food, for reasonable prices, with very kind and attentive service (some of them speaking English). Plenty of parking space and no nuisance from the nearby road.

The restaurant is situated between Colle di Val D'Elsa and Volterra. We were a group of twelve. There were many varied choices from our group but all enjoyed the food and excellent service. Lovely views from the outside tables.

We wound up here because of a very happy accident, after a failed attempt at a day trip to Volterra. We arrived at Volterra to discover that it was absolutely impossible to park and, not wanting to miss lunch hours for all the restaurants, decided to scrap the trip and stop at one of the restaurants we had passed on our way up the hill. We pretty much randomly chose il Boschetto, and we could not have been more pleased!!

First off, our server was fantastic. She was kind and welcoming and helpful, and we immediately knew we had made the right choice because of our first interactions with her. And thankfully the food was also amazing! It was the home-cooked meal we had been searching for for the last couple days in Siena, that until today seemed to elude us. I had the tagliolini with porcini mushrooms, which was literally the lunch I had been daydreaming about. The rest of our group was thrilled with their food as well. We really enjoyed their house red wine - it tasted like the wine my dad’s Italian grandfather used to make, and my dad loved it so much he bought four liters of it.

We asked our sever to bring us the three desserts she thought were best, and they were all delicious and made in house. One was a mint & chocolate cake-type thing that was absolutely incredible, one was an equally delicious apricot tart, and of course we got some cantuccini with vin santo.

tl;dr this place was amazing and one of our favorite meals in Italy thus far. Wonderful service, and a lovely place to sit outside and have a simple, delicious meal!!
