If you visit beautiful Orvieto make sure you don't miss "La Palomba". We're always looking for the traditional Italian food and "La Palomba" is serving delicious Pasta, slowly simmered meat dishes etc. Trattoria-Cuisine at it's best.

Everything about the restaurant was lovely...the wait help was wonderful and the food superior. I had the gnocchi, which I am usually hesitant to try, as I have had several I have not enjoyed...but as usual, I ask for the chef's specialty and that was the gnocchi. I was in heaven with each bite, perfectly cooked and spiced. A plus!

A truly traditional restaurant enjoyed by the locals. It is family run and the offerings are a delicious example of traditional Umbrian food. We enjoyed our experience fully. After a couple of tries on busy evenings, we finally made a reservation.

We three went on the recommendation of our B&B owner. We had 2 pasta dishes, wild boar in sauce (yum), sautéed chicory, salads, and a bottle of Orvieto red for 68 Euros. That's a very good price for good food in a busy tourist town.

I cannot say enough about the food, it is something I think about every time I am asked how my trip to Italy was. We went for lunch the first day in Orvieto at La Palomba, and I wanted to eat every meal there, but had to consider 3 others I was traveling with. We had dinner there 2 nights... More

Make sure you book as this is a very popular trattoria. Full of locals and foodie tourists. Lovely service and menu is also in English. As I opened the door today I was welcomed by the smell of truffles! I had hand made pasta with a hefty amount of shavings directly grated on top! It was sensational! The speciality of... More

A local real estate agent had recommended this restaurant, so we thought we would give it a try. I am often in Orvieto, and try and make it a point to try one new restaurant every time I go. I could not have been happier. The pasta dish I had was heaven (tagliatelle San Marcello) something like that, anyway, it... More
