Al centro di Viterbo la nostra Osteria propone una cucina semplice, del territorio e genuina. La cucina viterbese si caratterizza per paste fresche come i lombrichelli, le fettuccine e i ripieni conditi con i prodotti di stagione. I secondi di carne allevata nei nostri allevamenti della tuscia ricalcano la tradizione contadina e la semplicita della cultura enogastonomica laziale. Ottima la pizza lievitata e maturata nelle 24 ore. Ricca la carta dei vini e delle birre che sta virando verso una proposta sempre piu regionale. Pane, paste e dolci fatti in casa

Nice experience

Arrived very late at lunch (15.00) , the staff was really kind, they find us a table we were 4 plus our little dog. food was really tasty as well as the wine, the service was perfect. fully reccomended , a must try is the "House Antipasto" and "cheese selection".

My second pizza in Viterbo suffered greatly in contrast with my first...why? The crust was tough as leather, the toppings tasted as stale as the crust. It was an effort to eat, even with sharp knife and fork. Nothing tasty about this, it was ugly to see, had an odd odor and tasted like it was made by someone who... More

this is no osteria or trattoria, it's a bit on the fancy side, but the quality of the food fully justifies it. it offers a great atmosphere, spectacular wines, super selection of dishes and nibbles... we had an antipasto misto between the two of us, it was almost as big as two meals! you MUST try the aleatico rosso from...

Very solid place to eat in the heart of Viterbo. Good appetizers, pasta dishes, and meats as well. The service was exceptional. Our waiter was Sardinian and had a real handle on social skills and restaurant etiquette. The price was decent and I would go back for a second meal. I guess that is the ultimate test.

This was our last evening in viterbo and having eaten well until now, we were hoping for a good meal. This was not to be. We started with antipasto misto. This was poor and dominated by vegetables in a tempura batter. The batter was heavy, tasteless and the vegetables inside were overwhelmed. My husband had a pizza which was OK... More

A bit radical chic, but special food, for a good price, good atmopshere. Not the typical turistica situation. Very good choice of wines.

Viterbo is a historical marvel that has been hit hard on the head by the Tempo di Crisi (economic crisis) with shops for rent at every turn. The places left seem to be left scrambling for the lowest common denominator and are not so inspiring. In this context, Vecchio Orologio is a special place indeed- offering well priced local dishes... More

I was hoping for more from this city centre restaurant after reading reviews. Although not expensive the pasta dishes we had were poor. I do not mind pasta being 'al dente' but not so one could hardly chew it!

We chse this restaurant without looking at any reviews, just that em followed a group of local young women from the car park. Made to feel very welcome from start to finish of the meal, which was excellent. The mixed bruschetta, the chicken with bacon and the rabbit with chestnuts and bacon were all amazing. The waiter told me the... More

We arrived in Viterbo from Rome on after a two hour "milk run" . The cost was only 5 Euros one way to Viterbo. We looked for a nice restaurant and were recommended Al Vecchio Orologio. It was a good choice. The interior is well appointed and the staff was welcoming and hospitable. I chose ravolio covered with cheese and... More
