Umbrian 'typical' --- means regional bliss

Good food, good local wine, good prices ... what's not to like. This local restaurant is in heart of old Norcia, and earns its Michelin 3-fork rating easily

This was our second visit to this restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was particularly friendly. Our waitress was very attentive and explained everything. She also indulged us in our poor Italian. The tortino for desert was really good and the gnocchetti with Sagrantino sauce was fabulous. Such I lovely place and we will definitely go back again,...

We got excellent food with truffles without artificial flower, had a good service and a really cosy ambient. What di you wish more from a Taverna?

While attending the black truffle festival (Nero Norcia, 28 Feb 2014 - 2 March 2014) we dined at this traditional restaurant. The menu has Norcian products prepared simply, traditionally,yet deliciously. The atmosphere in the restaurant is cosy and unimposing. Service was fantastic (We had reserved a table through our hotel, and when we got there they had our table prepared... More

We have been in Italy for the last seven days, staying first on the Amalfi coast in the #1 rated European resort hotel, Santa Caterina. We have also eaten in the best restaurant in Spoleto on our way to Norcia. That said, we just had the best dinner of our trip so far, eating at Taverna de Massari. The food... More

It's probably one of those typical tourist traps, which are usually not recognised as such by the tourists in their holiday-high mood. Let's start with the food. The quality is not more than average. For instance the ravioli with porcini (ceps) and tartufo (truffles) or the gnocchetti with "Norcina" sauce and truffles as examples. The ravioli was the better dish,... More

This was our second visit to this place, and this time we were a party of 12. On arrival, we presented them with a basket of mushrooms, which we had gathered on the Piano Grande. They made then into a delicious pasta dish for us. After the many other courses, washed down with excellent but not expensive Umbrian wine, we... More

Authentic and excellent Norcese meals in a quiet and nicely decorated restaurant. The black truffle dishes, the meat with berry sauce and the lentils with sausages are superb!! Prices are very reasonable. Perfect for an intimate dinner because the staff is courteous and understated.
