A non-descript exterior gives little indication of the food served within. Situated on the fringe of the old town by one of the old gates, Osteria La Pace serves high quality local food. There are no frills because the cooking doesn't need it. The maiale...More

As described above we went there five times during a one week trip. The food and value for money is THAT good. We loved their crostini entree, the noodles with boar, the Tuscan style beef and the tagliata mille sapori. No wonder so many locals...More

Don't miss Osteria La Pace if you head to Volterra. The mixed antipasto platter has homemade crostata and spreads, the pastas are perfectly seasoned, and the staff are friendly, helpful but unobtrusive.

We had crostini with locally made dips - wonderful. Pasta with wild bore was delicious. Moro in camiccia as desert - lovely. Size of portions - very big. Service was very friendly. Family run I believe and it shows. Will go back if ever again...More

I had a great meal at this old family restaurant, in existance since 1939, arrived by chance on a Sunday noon and the place was packed with locals, allways a good sign. Great local cuisine, home made pasta and local wine. Will come back again.
