“Reliable Long-Established Orvieto Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

We have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years and it never disappoints. It is warm and cosy, small and intimate, family-run. The homemade pasta is wonderful. It is frequented by both locals and visitors alike as it good value and appeals to people who love good local food.

“Wonderful lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The owner of the Misia Resort recommended this restaurant, with good reason. Our lunch was beautifully prepared, traditional dishes, served with wonderful local wine. Staff are cheery and effusive, making the dining experience a happy one.

“Great atmosphere and food! But make reservations.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Got there right at 7:30 when it opened, huge line already and this was October! We were so lucky to be one of two tables let in without reservations. Everyone else was turned away. Fun place.

“Good for casual dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

This is a very traditional Italian restaurant that sits in the town of Orvieto, not very difficult to locate as we saw signpost on our way at night.

We ordered the antipasto tipico della casa which is a mixed hor d'oeuvre of the house. The scaloppina al limone (veal cooked with lemon sauce) was not my favourite. For the
"umbrichelli" al tartufo (homemade tagliolini served with truffle), the plate was served by a waiter with truffle freshly shredded in front of you. It tasted good. For dessert, I ordered the blueberry moist cake and it was yummy too.
