We were lucky enough to stay at Hotel Vannucci so Zafferano Pievese was right downstairs. We ate here every night during our 4 night stay. Why? because it was AMAZING. Delicious fresh made pasta dishes and daily specials made with fresh local ingredients, if not from the produce brought in from the hotel's own farm. A MUST.

We enjoyed the saffron risotto, grilled chicken breast, a bottle of sparkling water and a half litre of the house red.... More

During a three day visit, we ate at Zafferano (at the hotel Vannucci) twice for lunch and once for dinner. The pasta with truffles was out of this world, as was the roast lamb and grilled chicken. One of our party had the pizza which was one of the best I have had ever, white cheese pizza with local sausage-... More
