Been here several times now and it really is great family style Tuscan food, as others have said just look at the number of local people eating here. All the dishes we had were great. The pasta is wonderful but so was the 'roast beef' done Tuscan style. House red wine was good but avoid the house white, answer again... More

Went to this charming little restaurant twice during our week in Sarteano. Don't expect anything like a typical restaurant, it's more like sitting in a cafe, but you can soon see it's good by the amount of locals who swarm there. The bubbly waitress who spoke not much more English than our phrase book Italian, made us feel welcome as... More

Thankfully the food was the highlight of this family run restaurant. The choice was limted as you would expect of this style of restaurant but there was something for everyone, the home made pasta (Pici) was a highlight as were the meat dishes. Didn't look at the wine list as the house red and white wine were very good and... More

A wonderful family run place. Great authentic food. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodated our poor Italian. House red wine was too good! Would have come back if not our last night

Staff could not be more friendly, lighting lousy, decoration average, ambience 100 %. . Food well cooked, good basic Tuscan, served with pride and pleasure. Who cares about decoration when everything else is so good?

Although it looked a bit empty and dull it's a truly good place to eat. The bruschetta is absolutely great. Pasta as pasta should be and the grilled rabbit delicious. We ate there 2 times during our vacation. 2nd time the had 'fiori di zucchini fritti': sensational!! For the kids they easily split a pasta meal with just tomato sauce... More

Fantastic Tuscan food done in traditional family way, no frills just very friendly service, food made with love and eaten with delight and topped off with a Vin Santo on the house.

We found la Trattoria Tripolitania from the reviews on TripAdvisor. Walked up there from the campsite early Sunday evening, and they were just opening up. Initial impression was a bit mixed; every other establishment on the square was busy on the sunny Sunday evening - they were empty. So rather than rushing in and being the only customers all night,... More

We had completely M&S timed lunch and picked this spot on our way around town. They said they were closing but checked with the kitchen and then said we could stay. We all had pasta and chicken with roast potatoes Tuscan style. It was a veritable feast. Yes we had to go back and spent longer here, full of locals... More

La Trattoria Tripolitania, or simply Tripa's, or "La Tripola" as the locals call it, is the stuff of legends. It is your quintessential Italian trattoria, a dying race in rapid extinction in modern day Italy. Tripa's has been preparing food for the natives of these beautiful hills for 50 years (and counting)... The menu? As close to an old Tuscan... More
