The real genuine flavour
DISCOVER THE PLEASURE OF TIME
The Osteria Fornelli, is a place where you can enjoy the flow of time, you can enjoy every instant, every smell/fragrance and every flavour. Each course is created by us with care and passion. We love slow cooking techniques, as the marinade and the vacuum sealed cooking and the low temperatures cooking.
This reflects our approach to the traditional cuisine: respect for the raw material and extreme care in treating it, with the goal of enhancing the flavours. But also, passion for telling our cuisine and our tradition. Our staff, thoughtful and prepared, is always ready to welcome you.

JONNI GUARGUAGLINI AND
Two young Tuscan entrepreneurs who strongly believe in their land, in creativity and in passion for work. They saw in the Osteria Fornelli the ideal place where to combine their paths: a place that has a magical location, which looks at the Tuscan region but has its heart in the city of Volterra. The Osteria Fornelli was born from the encounter of tradition and innovation.
Federico’s creativity is the soul of the tavern, each of his dish contains both tradition and innovation. Full of ideas and in continuous evolution, Federico desire above all to amaze the customer. At the base of the creations there is always the care of the raw material and the choice of seasonal products that Tuscany offers.
He is honouring the restaurant name with his excellent preparation and coordination. He is very careful about every detail, precise and elegant in the explanations of the dishes and expert at introducing the menu in a harmonic way, creating synergy with the client that will perceive the attention and the preparation that is behind the Osteria Fornelli, even before tasting a course.
Antonella has a determined character, but at the same time is sweet and caring towards customers and above all colleagues. She’s like the staff’s sister, capable of instilling security and positivity in everyone, her smile is indispensable in the kitchen in order to work in harmony and to convey emotion in every dish.
The strong passion for cooking has allowed Valentina to reach an important role in Osteria Fornelli in just a few years. In the kitchen, she delights in experimenting with new dishes and combinations, but most of all she is taking care of the processing; slow marinating, double cooking, steam cooking, home-made pasta and bread that are remarkable.
