Worth the effort to find this small restaurant has a limited menu but what it does it does well. You will probably have to ask the way but you will be pleased you did.

This restaurant is a small hidden Italian jewel. The menu is not very elaborate, but the food is excellent, and so are the house wines, especially the red (Chianti) wine. The friendly hospitality of the hostess completed our very pleasant night. We Will certainly come again!

Paperi and Civette has an address on a tiny piazza then even a friend of ours who lives in Arezzo didn't know about. The restaurant is actually on Via Guglielmo Oberdan about 3 blocks east of Corso Italia, on the left right where Oberdan widens out into a small piazza. Paperi and Civette has sort of a French approach to... More

This restaurant was only a few steps from our apartment .. and weren't we glad !! The food was just wonderful, absolutely everything !! A couple of points to mention, they really need to display the menu and the opening times properly outside.I suspect that this may have contributed to the extreme lack of other customers. Maybe add side salads... More

We drove to Arezzo from where we are staying near Città della Pieve, found a parking garage, and made our uncertain way through the Porta Trieste e Trentino and toward the center. We were hungry; on a small street we came upon Paperi e Civette, which had one outdoor table free, which we took. Our meal was wonderful: the casarecce... More

It is a cozy and lovely restaurant with food that was very delicious, made from scratch, and filling (but not heavy) topped with a fantstic dessert of creme brule. The owner was a lovely woman who was gracious enough to serve us herself. I ate there during a summer study abroad trip to Italy with some fantastic professors. The atmosophere... More

They have a menu that changes with the season and usually has a nice mix of traditional aretine dishes and more provocative offerings. Service is friendly. Prices are great, particularly the lunch deal.

We ate hear based on recommendations from the chef at Ristorante Mariano. Lovely small restaurant that I believe is a sister-sister team, one in the kitchen, the other front of house. Food delicious and ambience warm and friendly.

My husband and I have eaten at Paperi e Civette twice in the last two weeks - once with friends, once just us. Both times were fantastic. The service is patient and swift, the dishes created with an eye to both tradition and innovation, and the freshness of the food indisputable. Homemade chocolate cake was perfect.

We traveled for 8 days through Tuscany and had many great meals. Our dinner at Paperi e Civette was the best. It was the dining highlight of our trip. The food was amazingly fresh tasting. Service was friendly and superb.
