I saw the reviews so came for lunch. Had the secondo which was good and a mixed salad which was really good! Then had dessert which for me was the highlight, a panna cotta with rice cinnamon cream and a drizzle of chocolate. It was devine and as there were 4 or 5 other panna cotta choices, I think this...

It doesn't look very promising from the outside, but once inside, you go upstairs to an elegant, quiet, and lovely restaurant. The food is authentic Umbrian, and my favorite dish is the umbrichelli pasta with pistacchio and speck (ham). Wine list is good, desserts are delicious and not overly sweet. We have eaten here at least three times and had... More

Lovely decor and excellent food. Off the beaten path and a bit difficult to find but definitely worth finding

L'Antica was a great suggestion by our hotel staff. The food, service, wines, and atmosphere were all excellent. The restaurant was not one of those tourist places but a local restaurant with a great feeling of warmth and a willingness to provide you with excellent service.

L'Antica Rupe was a truly wonderful find. It was referred by the desk attendant at our hotel who said it was his favorite place in Orvieto. When referring L'Antica Rupe, he quickly added that it wasn't a tourist place. Without knowing more, we asked him to make reservations for us for that evening. When we found the ristorante, it was...

My wife and I just happened to be staying at a hotel around the corner. The staff was charming, both in English and Italian. The pasta was perfect. We live in Rome, so I cannot stress enough how perfect it was. I also had an oven-roasted duck which was amazing. They were able to sqeeze us in early on a... More

Me and my boyfriend, Italian, found the place by chance without expecting we'll have the best pasta to date. Our first courses were the pasta of the day - 'maccheroni fave baffo e scaglie di parmigiano' (macaroni with green beans and cheek lard sauce and parmesan) 'umbrichelli pistacchio e speck' (type of pasta with pistachio and speck sauce). On top... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch based on the recommendation of our hotel. We had a great meal that we enjoyed so much that we ended up making a reservation for dinner for that night before leaving. The food and wine were both excellent. And I always take it as a good sign when a restaurant is full and the... More
