This is a fairy tale witch is still continuing and witch can be lived in the almost unreal atmosphere that encircles"L'Hostaria del Ponte", the last stop for those who want to abandon the real worl before surroinding themselves in the evanescent landscape of the ravines that beisege the tufaceus hill where the town of Civita di Bagnoregio stands. "L'Hostaria del Ponte" welcomes its guests in the small and eegant climatised dining-rooms, intimates areas on three floors of an ancient tufo's house which has been elegantly restored and where attention has been paid to detail.The restaurant offers a simple cuisine which allows you to discover the traditional tastes of the Viterbo's area: piciarelli, wild boar, truffles and porcini mushrooms which are presented in a rich and colourful sequences of typical dishes. Fragrances from long ago and genuine flavours that are exalted by the prestigius quality of the wines from the local cellars such as the famous Est!Est!!Est!!! Of Montefiascone or Orvieto classico. From the splendid terrace of the Hostaria del Ponte there is a view accross the valley which includes the towns of Lubriano and Civitella d'Agliano in a chain of rocky crests that are eroded and fluctuate like lunar cracks with the cliff of Civita dominating them. In the Mercatello district of Bagnoregio there are magic moments to be had in the Hostaria del Ponte: Flavours and smells from long ago, intense aromas from the sweet and luxurius nature, sights which are almost spectral......., Magical....., In the twilight, a narrow 300 metre bridge suspended over the Calanchi valley...And losing oneself in the fairy tale of Civita "La citta che muore", an architectonic jewel with its houses erected in the eptiness, sunny with the golden tufo stone, dream-like like an island emerging out of the clouds.

The restaurant is located before you cross the bridge to Civita di Bagnoregio and they offer places outside with a fantastic view, but if they offer you a place in a area that is not covered, don't accept because it's very windy and the food cools down immediately. The food is very good and they have good prices.

What a great meal before taking a walk across the bridge. The panciotti melanzane (eggplant ravioli) was incredible. The piciarelli (a fatter round noodle) with pomodoro sauce was also very good. Let them know you are crossing the bridge and you'll go through for free after the meal. Wonderful views.

my family visited this restaurant this week. On our trips we like to taste as many new flavours as possible. So each of us orders a different dish and we swap. We came heredue to a recommendation from somebody who lived in Italy and said that the pasta's here were to die for. After you are told that, it is... More

This restaurant was our first stop after we rented a car at the Rome Airport. We were fortunate to be seated on the terrace with an unparalled view of Civita di Bagnoregio. However, our seating was not the only thing about which one could rave, as our meal was fantastic. I ordered the pear on pasta with walnut sauce, and... More

Incredible combination of food and view! The Fagottini formaggio e pere al radicchio and for desert: Millefogglie al cioccolato was incredible. But you should eat before walking to Civita so you can work off the calories!

At Hostaria del Ponte - Civita di Bagnoregio you can enjoy a delicious Italian meal while enjoying a view you are unlikely to forget.

After a few days in Rome, we spent a day touring in Umbria and ended up at this gem. The food rivals the amazing view of the town. We enjoyed a great antipasto tray with some of the best sausage we've tried (it was wild boar). Next course was a terrific white bean dish. We finished with a gnocchi and... More

Wonderful food - great choice - I had pear stuffed pasta with mushroom sauce and it is the best food I have ever had. The view is gorgeous. It is a must place to go if you are in the region.
