We spend part of every summer in Tuscany; without variation, our first evening finds us dining at Osteria Etrusca, a delightful family-run business on the main via in this charming village, complete with its own Etruscan museo. We return often - the food is excellent, cooked by the lovely daughter Stephania, the ambiance is serene presided over by the gentle owner Enrico, and the wine superb. After a frenetic day at the Uffizi or other Tuscan gem, we make a path to this delightful Osteria at the end of the day. Try the pici pasta and the wonderful pizzas. Or even better, the sliced beef with arugula and Parmesan.

We called at this Osteria for Pranzo just after we had arrived in C d L as it was close to where we were staying. First impressions were of a traditional small family owned restaurant with lots of pictures of the local area around the lake stretching back to the early 20th century. What followed was a meal where the ingredients spoke for themselves and were prepared simply and sympathetically by someone who obviously loves food. (like me) Roberto introduced himself at the end of the meal after I had commented on how good it was to his wife who serves up the food. We had quite a long chat about it although as our Italian is not that advanced we could not avoid the coccasional consult with Google translate. He explained about the rare breed pig (Cinta Sinese) he sources from the region of Siena inTuscany which has now been given DOP status. Forget bland, white (often dry) meat we have become used to when eating pork. This is completely different and delicious and a cross between Cingiale (Wild Boar ) and domestic pig. The animals are reared in the semi-wild and forage for sweet and bitter acorns, tubers and tuffles. The Starter platter of Prosciutto, Salami, Capo Collo all from this breed is outstanding and if served up by top London restaurants would probably cost a fortune We live in neighbouring Marche where salumi is also good but the rare breed of pork used here and the subtle use of fennel in Tuscan Salumi elevated it to something really special. The pork menu alone should make this place a must visit. Roberto also cooks lake fish, such as perch, persico and carp (the latter not really my cup of tea but , nevertheless well prepared and roasted with pork 'lardo' and fennel for those that DO like it) which we tried on or 2nd visit just before we returned home after our 4 day break.. I was surprised how quiet Trasimeno was (mid July) and even more surprised how quiet this restaurant was at lunchtime on a Friday. Given all of the above, the prices were modest and, this Osteria deserves a wider and bigger audience than it appears to have at the moment based on our two visits particularly with the produce on offer. Will certainly be back on our next visit. Cannot wait!Grazieeeee un saluto grande da Agnese,Roberto

This town is truly stunning peppered with quality shops and restaurants. We were spoiled for choice, but settled for this restaurant & and were not disappointed! Everything about the restaurant spoke quality. This was one of the very few restaurants that Iâve had cheese fondue! Cured meats and bean Zuppa featured, but I settled for the Mozzarella di Bufala salad .

Osteria la solita zuppa
This restaurant, in the old town of Chiusi, is quite special. Italian food is extremely traditional, and what distinguishes good restaurants from bad, according to the Italian thinking, is the quality and freshness of the ingredients rather than originality. La Solita Zuppa, however, manages to serve really good traditional dishes while at the same time coming up with some fabulous variations on traditional themes. (It is very much a slow food restaurant.) The pici with a goose ragu (a special) was extraordinarily good, one of the best rich meaty pasta sauces I have had. The maiale (pork) slow cooked in chestnut honey was out of this world. The roast beef, though more traditional, had a melt-in-the mouth tenderness. And the three icecream balls was up there with the best desserts ever. It sounds banal, but is like nothing what you will ever find in a gelateria: it involved mascarpone and yoghurt, chestnut honey and saffron, and I forget the third. The subtlety and distinctiveness of the flavours was as good as it gets. Soups are their speciality (as the name indicates) but we didnât try them as it was not really the season. All these dishes would do a multi-starred Michelin restaurant proud. The house wine was very good as well (a good test). Judging from the wines ordered by the next table, the wine list ooks pretty good too. The presentation was a little more formal than the usual trattoria â linen, nice glasses, etc. â which made it good for an occasion. There was a mix of discriminating tourists and locals. The affable and very likeable owner and head chef will explain all the dishes, in English if required, and it is worth taking his advice as there are often specials not on the menu. Value was extraordinarily good â right at the low end of standard trattoria prices, yet the food quality was top of the range. Definitely a stop on a culinary tour of Italy.Chiusi vecchio is quite a pretty town, not much visited: the 1930s archaeological museum, devoted to Etruscan antiquities, is interesting, as is the church opposite.

The Tenuta Lamborghini Restaurant is inside the Manor. In the estate you can find a striking balcony where events and ceremonies are organized. Our menu offers traditional dishes and other specialties suggested by the chef (i.e. a menu of different pastas
I believe the restaurant is a fairly new addition to the tenuta, as it helps them capture more business and offer dining to guests. We are an american couple with a house nearby and always visit for the wines. The restaurant, with its wall of windows, is quite inviting and has an elegant feel, at reasonable prices. Typical local fare, with an open kitchen, so you can watch meal preparations. Great staff, managers on site. The restaurant has a lovely attached outdoor patio and we would like to see this improved somewhat. It is quite buggy in July and we wanted to take our coffee/dessert outside to enjoy. The lighting was a bit weak and can be improved, while the area needs some bug lights or maybe even citronella/vape' candles. This is just some minor suggestions. With DivinPeccato moving out of the area, this restaurant has filled that local gap and should get the word out!Also - Maybe you guys can offer daily pool access for a fee during the summer? I'd be willing to pay around $25-30 to access the grounds and pool for several hours and I am sure others would as well.kind guests, thank you for your review. we are always open to suggestions to improve our offer. We are delighted that you enjoyed our restaurant and try to improve the outside appearance of the terrace, so be in the countryside the issue of insects is always to be considered difficult to deal with. For the pool proposal, we promoted out of season (except July and August) Aperitivo on Saturdays with access to the pool all day, which we plan to propose next year too. We hope to see you for then. Yours sincerely. Alessandra

I was very eager to take my friends to Bruno's as well as not having been back myself for a few years. Located on a central street of Citta' della Pieve, it offers a lovely decor and ambiance (upstairs and downstairs dining rooms), very very good service and excellent Umbrian and Tuscan dishes. The service is excellent and staff very nice and helpful.The locale was completely restructured a few years ago with great taste and also keeping the original frescos on the ceilings in the upper rooms of what was originally a medieval house.

Great italian restaurant specialized in cooking fish and finest Tuscan cuisine . Very refined location. The staff Will make yourself at home
A real hidden gem. Simply outstanding!!! We loved it! It's tucked away in Chiusi, Tuscany but well worth finding. It felt like sitting by in a high-end restaurant in Florence or Rome. The owner and staff are extremely friendly and efficient. Don't use the menu, let them lay the meal out and match the wines for you. You will be very pleased.

We came here last year after living in and visiting Paciano for years. We come here on off nights and when in the mood for somethiing different. (GREAT SEAFOOD). We have come to love their Branzino, Swordfish and most of all their clams and spaghetti. The gnocchi and Norcia meat is great too. We also love the service and the desserts (Tiramisu)...Try it if you have a night free.
