This was a nice restaurant. We sat out in the courtyard. The service was good. We had "pork cheek" appetizer. The pasta dishes were good but not outstanding. We were disappointed that their special duck dish was sold out. Overall good meal but not outstanding.

Food was quite unique and lived up to expectations. Upon recommendations here and other sites, we had the truffle pasta and the pigeon (palomba). Truffle pasta was truffle overload (in a good way) with even more truffles grated on top of the pasta at your table. Pigeon did not disappoint either. Overall, two dishes that are unique to the region... More

We stopped here for a simple pasta lunch and had two great dishes: tagliatelle with boar (an unusual choice for my wife, who tends to stay away from big game), and tagliatelle with lamb (my selection). Both were excellent, and had it not been such a warm day, which restrained our appetite, we would have tried other dishes as well.... More

We had an ok lunch here today. I thought the service was a bit hit & miss with the waiter knocking over my wine glass & no offer to replace it. Given it was the house wine that wouldn't have hurt. We had lamb & pork chops, truffle omelette (which was delicious) & soups - also good but it was... More

I had recommended to this place by B&B Casaselita where I was staying. Their place I'd great so I figured this would be as well. I didn't have reservation but there was only me so I said I would wait outside until something came up. She brought me s glass on wine and before long got a very nice table.... More

Ate here whilst staying in Orvieto. The food was excellent. Started with bruschetta with tomatoes and prosciutto followed by home made umbricelli and tagliatelle both excellent. Staff were all very friendly and service good. Well worth a visit but book if intend to as it was full after 7.45.

Delightful and rustic restaurant in one of the narrow lanes of Orvieto. The pasta with truffles was superb. The wild boar was good. The wait staff were polite and helpful. Only negative I have is the house red wine (sangiovese) - l will choose a different wine next time. Otherwise, this is a lovely place for a meal.
