Wonderful Trattoria experience

Exploring the streets of Orvieto we found this tucked away in a side street. Inside it is what you expect of a busy family run business and the vibe was good. Service was prompt and we noticed how busy the staff were. At last we got to try the wild boar and pasta which was out of this world. All... read more

Trattoria La Palomba is a lovely, friendly restaurant serving delicious traditional food. It is so popular for many reasons, but it is recommended to have a reservation. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. My husband and I both had a filleto of beef with different sauces (his the pepe verde and mine a creamy nettle sauce) and both were delicious... More

... which all mounts up and makes La Polumba much more expensive than the many restaurants of similar quality in town. The approach is rustic and main dishes are fine (nothing more), with beef sprinkled with truffle shavings popular among one-off visitors. Pigeon and lamb are char-grilled and though we did not order it, the former looked blackened as it... More

Excellent food- way more flavour than a lot of the Rome restaurants we have been to. Staff was professional and friendly. All round great experience and Orvieto is not to be missed!

We had the best meal of our May 2014 visit to Italy at La Palomba in Orvieto, a family-run trattoria that uses local ingredients. We were fortunate to be able to eat here as we hadn't made a reservation but we stopped by before it opened for lunch and were given the one remaining table for two. The food was... More

Without question, this was one of the highlights of our trip! Amazing food and service. We were there amidst truffle season, and this is the go-to restaurant for black truffles. We are from Texas and had steak with black truffles. Outstanding! If you like truffles, you will LOVE La Palomba!

This was our last night in Italy and the truffles everywhere had been very delicious. Here we had more delicious truffles grated onto our pasta dishes. The house wine was very affordable and also delicious, and then there was the tiramasu!

La Polumba serves tasty specialties which includes pigeon, wild boar and truffles grated on a number of different dishes. The restaurant is very popular so it is advisable to make a reservation as even in November it was full. There was a computer problem the evening we were there that delayed our getting the bill by at least a half... More
