Great food

Really great food in a simple and typical location. We tried the pasta with lamb ragu and the wild pig with tomatoes, both from local cuisine, and they were outstanding Staff professional and very careful Recommended

Good quality authentic Italian food at a good price in a relaxed atmosphere. We really enjoyed our lunch, which was perfect for our needs, but would not necessarily go back.

My favorite place to eat in Orvieto. Giampiero is always welcoming & Giovanna's cooking never fails to please. Not exotic, but just really good local dishes. The truffles are wonderful!

A great dinner. The servings are very large and the restaurants welcome sharing of courses without extra charge. We would definitely go to La Palomba again.

I went with a large group of friends and we all agreed it was excellent. Considering some members of the group live in Rome, I feel they can give an authentic opinion. Everyone enjoyed their dishes- wild boar, bruschetta, cheese plate, and pasta with vodka sauce. The service was friendly and the decor inviting and typical Italy-style.

This was site of our first meal in Italy, fresh off of a 9 hour plane ride and 2 hour train ride, so our experience was colored by our state of exhaustion --- but looking back after 3 weeks of eating meals in Italian restaurants throughout Italy, this one would be one of the really good ones. We were well... More

Recommended by our hotel. We sat in the middle room, think the side rooms were for locals, but good sign that its not just for tourists. Shaved truffle at the table and the owner took delivery of some more whilst we were there and proudly showed everyone! The food was very good matched by the atmosphere. We would come here... More

My GF loves this place and brought me here. Very nice decor and any place in a tourist city that attracts so many locals is inspiring. If you love truffles this is the place. My GF had the truffle pasta and I was thrilled to have their version of Carbonara AND truffle that is generously shaved at your table. Service... More

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
