We were recommended to go to mezza Luna by our B & B host and we checked as well the comments on Trip advisor site which were most of the time positive specially regarding tha Spagetti Carbonara which is supposed to be the best in the region! What a disappointment! First with atmosphere light with neon in lamps and no... More

We had this place recommended by the Villa we were staying in and was incredibly disappointed to say the least. There were three of us and we each ordered a salad. It was wilted browned lettuce drowned in olive oil and was covered in heavy salt. Two of us ordered the mixed meat dish and it was so salty that... More

We read all the positive reviews of this restaurant and we were looking forward to a great meal. It's as if we were in an alternate reality. The carbonara was dreadful-very heavy and the pancetta in it was extremely salty. We had veal with lemon that was not edible at all. Veal was fatty and drowning in the sauce which... More

The carbonara was recommended by the host at our B&B. Even the menu indicated carbonara was #1 and highlighted in yellow. Plenty of locals eating here too. It was GREAT!

Everyone comes to Mezza Luna for the pasta and Zuppa Inglese dessert (which we did not have room for)! We enjoyed the house appetizer plate, Umbrian pasta specialties, and of course Orvieto wine. The atmosphere was jovial and the service personal and attentive. It it had been open Sunday we would have eaten there again.

On our first night in Orvieto we decided to eat at Mezza Luna as it had good reports in a guide book we had. We found the place late afternoon in one of the lovely old Streets of Orvieto and a local was nearby so we asked him what it was like and he said it was a great place... More

Mezza Luna was our favorite restaurant in Orvieto. It is a local restaurant with great food at very reasonable prices. Carbonara was primo!

Very much enjoyed the neighborhoody atmosphere, the no frills but friendly service and the home made pasta. Will certainly go there again when in Orvieto next.
