Authentic food and atmosphere

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

Trattoria La Palombo deserves its high ratings. We had a lovely lunch the highlight of which was the local pasta with porcini mushrooms. If you are in Orvieto during porcini season, be sure to have this dish. All of our dishes were delicious, and the service was polite and prompt.

This is unquestionably my favorite restaurant in Orvieto. This is the place I take all my out of town visitors, friends, family; the place we celebrate special occasions, and the place I go when I want local, great food, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. I've eaten here over a dozen times and never had a less than wonderful meal.... More

Want to understand why people love truffles? Make sure you put this warm hearted restaurant on your itinerary. We came in early but saw the place quickly fill up with locals. I had the truffle pasta with the dumpling-like noodles and savored every bite. My husband had the wild boar, another excellent dish. The wine selection is outstanding and the... More

During our trip to rome recently we visited Orvieto which is a great town so much culture but best of all having lunch in this restaurant topped our visit.The owners were outstanding as was the food. You have to book but it was worth the wait.
