Fodor's Review

Wine lovers shouldn't miss this wine bar/eatery, just off Piazza Grande, with more than 700 labels on the list. Seasonal dishes of traditional fare, such as acquacotta del casentino (porcini mushroom soup) and baccalà in umido (salt-cod stew), are served in the simply decorated, vaulted dining room. You can accompany your meal with one, or more, of the almost 30 wines that are available by the glass. Limited outdoor seating is available in warm weather.

 La Torre di Gnicche Review

Just spent 12 days in Arezzo and once I discovered La Torre, I had to visit there at least once a day. Lucia, the proprietor,knows every bottle on her vast shelves. I tried two or three new wines every visit and all were memorable. The atmosphere is so charming and warm and the smells emanating from the kitchen. On one day we smelled a dessert baking and it was Lucia's ricotta pear crostata. We had to come back that nice for a slice or two (with

a glass of wonderful Moscato D'Alba). Her soups are all based on the historic recipes--pappa al pomodoro, zuppa di farro & ribollita. She offers a "degustazione" of three olive oils as well--although she suggests waiting until the new oil is pressed in November. It's obvious that the ingredients used at the Torre are all of the very highest quality of local artisanal products. Do not miss a chance to spend some time here. You will not regret it.
