Warm welcom, great food and excellent service

We arrived on the early side and the restaurant was not quite opened. Still we were warmly greeted by the owner, Ciro and were seated with an apology that he just needed a few minutes to finish opening. He seated us and got us drinks so we were very comfortable while we waited. Ciro was also very... read more

Our favorite restaurant was closed and we were hot and tired so we came in here. The food wasn't bad but oh my goodness what an attitude the waiter had. He told us he wasn't happy that we didn't want a full blown lunch, and then proceeded to try and force us to buy expensive things on the menu! Then... More

Great food and personable owners on site. Went there with my wife and then took 20+ visiting architecture students for a program ending dinner. Great pastas, wild boar and inexpensive wine.

I think our choices of food were not the best but we wanted to try something different - I had pigeon as the town used to keep them in the rock cellars centuries ago. It was well cooked but not enough. Service was good and the location great.

This was some of the best food I've ever eaten! Cooked with passion and served with love. The two wonderful guys present delectable cuisine. No menus just find out what is fresh and being presented that day. Great wine pairings of course. Much of the decor was made from olive wood.

Had lunch in this charming, small restaurant. The food was very good. Be prepared, NO MENU. The chef cooks what ever he gets that morning from local suppliers. We had 3 different types of pasta, one with wild boar sauce, a must try in Umbria, that was very good. The recommended red wine, which was locally produced was a great... More

Relaxing atmosphere, fantastic service and personal attention to detail. I was here 3 years ago and found the quality of the food and service is still outstanding. Ciro tells you the what is available and guides you through the dining experience. Gabriele is a marvellous chef.

Took a day trip to Orvieto from Rome and went here for lunch. The staff was extremely nice and the food was delicious. I would love to go back again.

8 of us treated to fine and plentiful (but not ridiculously so) menu times just so as to finish before midnight and let us see the fireworks at the Duomo. Gossipy (longtime American resident) owner-chef entertains and all-inclusive price was outstanding.

Firstly, ignore the menu on the door. It's aguide but you will eat nothing from it. Small but tasteful, lovely welcome from Ciro who speaks fantastic English but happy to be patient if you want to practice your italian. The food was a list given by course and was wonderful. We were not rushed although it was very busy. Give... More
