Osteria del Teatro is centrally located but on a road that is not as busy as the main thoroughfare. It has a number of rooms, all of which have their own atmosphere. The cuisine is based on local ingredients and Tuscan recipes, cooked and served very well. A decent wine list is an added attraction. Well worth a visit.

The atmosphere was amazing, a very authentic Tuscan feel. The staff we all so very friendly and hospitable who all seem to have a passion for good food and hospitality. The food itself was truly amazing, meat cooked to perfection! Highly recommend the chocolate samples as a desert to share!

For lunch or dinner, it is hard to beat Osteria del Teatro! Affordable, amazing wine selection, beautiful cozy atmosphere and sensational food and service. Don't miss the stuffed zucchini flowers or onion baked in parchment paper!

This is an idiosyncratic restaurant with very oddly decorated restrooms (you could spend ages just looking around, with amusement) and what had to be the very best waiter we have ever come across ANYWHERE. This amazingly professional man took orders, all different, from NINE people at the one table, some with variations to the chosen dish, and all the wine... More

Part of the dining experience is a walk around the various rooms of this restaurant to view the pictures which adorn the walls. They even went out of their way to decorate the rest-room like an antique toyshop. Then comes the food ... the "tagliata" is superb and the baked onion is second to none. Definitely a must !

We have eaten at Osteria del Teatro many times over the past 10 years and each time the food and service has been brilliant. The most recent was New Years Eve when the set meal was one of the best we've had. Thank you Emiliano and Ylenia for looking after us yet again.

Two or three dining rooms, the smallest ( on left ) is very cozy and romantic. Good food and wine list, another good recommendation. Worth a visit but probably book
