We ate here just after our cooking class. The atmosphere, the grounds, and the service was fabulous. It's a tricky drive to get here, but it's worth the trip.

This goes against all the other meals which we have had whilst staying in Umbri that previously we have struggled to spend more than 100 euros this evening was 3 times that. Saying that is was excellent. We had the tasting menu which was around 7 or 8 courses. Stand out dishes were a very delicate burrata ravioli, tagliatelle with... More

Every dish they served was perfect...Silvia the owner, was very kind with us! Special menu for the children and at the end the price was not so expensive for a Michelin starred restaurant.

I'm travelling a lot. Italy is my favourite destination partly because of the great wine and food. Besides I lived here for a couple of years so I can tell a difference between a great and mediocre quality. My verdict for this place: great wine, great view from restaurant terrace, but food... Yes, local fresh ingredients, interesting combinations, but unfortunately... More

It was pretty idyllic sitting on the balcony terrace drinking fantastic wine and sampling a very good tasting menu! Service is slick and attentive. The water menu alone is vast and impressive as is the wine menu. After beginning our meal with a chilled glass of Presecco we had a delicious bottle of Querciabella Chianti Classico which accompanied each dish... More

This was a real treat. We sat on the balcony watching the sunset. We had the set menu, which although pricey, was fantastic.

Great both for lunch and dinner (I was staying there so able to test both options), Il Falconiere is a nice italian cuisine restaurant located at eponymous Relais & Chateau. Excellent regional specialities, beautifully executed by a skillful chef - all is great but a vegetarian degustation menu is absolutely breathtaking and goes greatly with an extensive and decently priced...

Wonderful ambiance into the old lemon house, outstanding service and a blend of creative and traditional cuisine. Large wine selection, including the Baracchi wines. We plan to return.
