Murlo: Pizzeria dell'Arco

Via delle Carcere, 13 , Phone: 0577.810.092

Closing day: Monday

Reviewed by: Kevin Clark from Italy, review #2403

When: 2007

A nice place for lunch around the corner from the Museo Etrusco in Murlo. Great views over the valley.

This small pizzeria is a nice place for lunch after a visit to the very nice Etruscan museum in Murlo. In fact, it's really the only choice nearby, since the only other restaurant in town apparently closed a couple of years ago. To get there, take the first left as you enter the main gate of the town, before you get to the museum.

It's a small place with a front bar area, a dining room off to the side with about 4 tables, and a nice enclosed terrace overlooking the valley with another 8 or so tables. The menu is nothing special but has a nice selection of typical Tuscan dishes. Service was good but not overly friendly.

Kim and her parents all began with salads (verde or mista) which looked nice. I started with the affitato misto, a nice selection of 3 or 4 types of salami, prosciutto, etc. including a very nice cinghiale sausage. I then had pici cacio e pepe (pecorino and black pepper - not a preparation you usually see on pici), Mom and Dad shared the pici con tartufo, and Kim had the ravioli della casa, also with truffle. All of the pastas were nice portions and very good.

Kim even had room for the homemade profiteroles in a very nice dark chocolate sauce. With wine, water, and coffee lunch cost a whopping 55 euros, easily one of the best values of our trip.
