The owners of our rental recommended Palomba. We tried to go one night without a reservation, but they were sold out. But we reserved for the next night. Fantastic. The locals eat here, not the tourists. Staff's English is a bit spotty but their welcome, helpfulness and service was not. Menu highlights: the restaurant branded table wine -- completely delicious... More

a favorite of locals this wonderful family-run trattoria features several dishes with truffles. And the generous abundance of truffles on each dish boggles the mind. My favorite is Spaghetti Ascaro--a version of Carbonara with added Truffles. Delicious! Then there is Filetto (beef) with truffles, and Filetto d'Ortica, an unusual sauce made of nettles that is equally good. the house wine... More

Fom the moment I sat down the service was excellent and I was really well looked after. I just ordered a simple dish of... More

Very busy local restaurant, make sure you have a reservation even on a weekday. The owner seated us he was very friendly. This is definitely a family run restaurant, service was fast and efficient. My husband and I shared antipasti , I had scaloppine with lemon and a side of vegetables and my husband had basically spaghetti carbonara with shaved... More

We spent four days in orvito (for the third time in last 5 years) and I must say for me this is surely the best restaurant in town. Once again WOW! for the pasta with truffles and tagliata di manzo with the same. Complimenti to the owner, grazie to Enio and Alice (our domestic companions).

We went to eat there at the recommandation of a local woman where we were lodging. The setting is nice and unpretentious. The cook herself was serving us and it really felt like a family restaurant. As a first course, we shared a Umbrichelli al tartufo (type of big spaghetti with trufle sauce) which was excellent. But it is the... More

A trip to Orvieto is not complete for me without a stop at La Palomba. This family owned restaurant specializes in local cuisine. The wait staff isf riendly --- and they never change! Most are family members. Vegetable offerings change daily. My favorite is umbricelli al tartufo, a local think spaghetti-type pasta with real truffles grated over it. They bring... More
