We stopped for lunch at Trattoria La Toppa, which had delicious food. On the recommendations of our tour guide and the restaurant owners, we ordered a variety of food, which was served family style. Everything from the appetizers (cold cuts, cheese and more) to main dishes (3 types of homemade pasta) to desserts (strawberry and caramel panna cottas and zuppa... More

We stumbled upon this Michelin-rated restaurant located in a charming medieval village by accident, and I'm so glad we did! The restaurant is family-owned and we had the opportunity to be hosted by the father and his son who took great care to make sure we were well taken care of. We had a party of 7 and had a... More

We weren't lucky enough to be here when meals are able to be eaten outside however we thoroughly enjoyed the meal we ate here. It felt as though we were experiencing real Italy in that the pasta was home made and the trattoria was very much family enterprise. A really good atmosphere, nice food and a reasonable price.

Great friendly service. Feels home cooked. Pasta is hand-made. Very happy evening spent at La Toppa. Also, great for a pretty walk before or after the meal.

Stayed in a Bed and Breakfast next door and ended up at La Toppa every night of our stay! Family run restaurant that made you feel part of the family! The older father Otello took a liking to my 11 year old son and gave him $5 after every meal to buy something for himself while we were on vacation.... More

I'm not sure we would have discovered this excellent Trattoria had we not been staying next door. The small village isn't really on the tourist trail but it is certainly worth a visit if only to eat here. Lots of Michelin recommendations for good reason the food was excellent as was the house wine. I plumped for the veal, my... More

The best part of travel is finding restaurants off the beaten path. Had our hotel concierge not told us about this charming family restaurant, we never would have known about La Toppa. Because San Donato is a walled city, look for street parking along the road circling the village. From there, it is a quick walk to La Toppa. We... More
