Historical Orvietan cuisine that you won't find in other restaurants in town. Adler, the owner, took the time to explain the history of the dishes and how they are made, and my lunch was delicious. I had the baffo (fried guanciale), a pesto fettucine, followed by homemade fig gelato. She's very proud of her food and it really shows. Please... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Duca di Orvieto.The passion and knowledge of the owner/chef came through in both the food and the service. Her recipes have been passed down over hundreds of years and there is a story to be told with many of them. The ravioli were melt in your mouth and the chicken fell off the bone.... More

We chose this place because of their pasta with truffles. And everything about it was wonderful -- not just the pasta. The goat cheese, the superb white wine, the friendliness and careful menu suggestions from the owner were all appreciated. As for the price of the meal: it was relatively speaking a bargain. Not cheap but modestly priced considering the... More

We stopped in Orvieto for lunch and some sightseeing on our way from Rome to Siena. Orvieto is exactly halfway point between these 2 cities. It was 7 of us and it was almost 2 pm, we decided that we need to find lunch spot quickly before everything is closed for siesta. “Duca di Orvieto” was one of the two... More

We decided to go to this ristorant during our one-day-trip to Orvieto. A beautiful place, clean and comfortable. The food is very good as the portions and quality, hand-made pasta, delicious meat, exceptional wines of the highest quality. Fair prices, friendly staff.

A local recommended this restaurant to us, as being good for regional food. We certainly enjoyed the meal but felt that it was on the pricey side for what it was, (although Orvieto is generally overpriced.) The recommended wine was very good. The hostess is very friendly and accommodating.

First we had an appetite-enhancing walkabout the beautiful medieval hilltop town of Orvieto, where the sun was shining brightly down upon the Italian families gathering outside the imposing Duomo for their communion celebrations. We went to one of our favorite restaurants here, Antica Rupe, but as it was booked out because of the communions, we wandered further up the road... More

Rustic restaurant serving food made like in the old days. The explanations by the owner were fascinating. We ended here because the top recommended places were fully booked. Sadly this place was mostly empty. The handmade pasta was very good.

If you're looking for the real rustic restaurant, serving the actual slow food as in the olden days, this is it. The place was completely empty, what a shame because it was fantastic ! We were welcomed by the chef herself, who gave a passionate explanation about het food. What a wonderfull lady ! And those dishes: Umbrichelle in ristretto... More
