“One of the best restaurants in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Lunch was light and delicious, a classic Orvieto, a fennel and rocket salad, stacked into a tower, a presentation so beautiful I didn't want to put a fork to it. Specialty breads and herbed olive oil dip.
This was my first visit, but my partner has had many dinners here, al fresco on the piassa and raved about every one of them.

“Lovely food at a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We had a 4 course dinner with wine and water included for 35€ per person. Food was very good and and service was excellent. Don't try to park in the area - use the underground parking lot nearby.

“Let down by poor service...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

This restaurant was very highly recommended by friends and so we emailed ahead to reserve. No response to our email so we called in to book in the end. When we arrived the staff seemed not to be expecting us. It was clearly quite busy. We were shown to our table and then we waited....and waited....and waited. A bottle of white wine that we hadn't ordered arrived. We asked for menus and were presented with a wine list. We asked for menus again and they finally arrived. We ordered and were slightly surprised that the waitress took no notes. We waited....and waited. Our starter arrived an hour after we ordered it, a different waitress having come back to check our order a second time (she still didn't write it down) - And so the meal continued....

The starters and dessert were delicious and imaginative. The mains were bland and uninteresting. Overall the service was poor.

Quite a disappointment. Pity as the restaurant clearly has great potential. Maybe we just hit a bad night.

“What elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

I had read the reviews about this restaurant, so when we passed by one lunch time we made a reservation for that evening. Staff were attentive, food was devine. Presentation was excellent, and such good value. We drank local red and white wine, which was delicious. An equivalent meal in Ireland would easily cost double if not triple the amount we paid. Go to this restaurant and savour the food, staff and ambience, you will not be disappointed.

“Simply the best. Semplicemente il megliore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

On looking at my review of last April ,I felt it would be boring to repeat all my paeans to this remarkable ristoratore and his exceptional food. This year, the food was still fresh, locally sourced,imaginatively presented with the old favourites and a few new ones. One difference was that we were greeted , not as clienti , returning after a year's absence but rather as old and valued friends.
I must repeat that I consider this to be one of the finest restaurants in my experience and Manuela, Eros and Suann have given us superb food and an unequalled welcome. Torniamo!
( If you want to experience the most sublime food, go during the truffle season- November to March; Eros is the most generous host I know with his tartuffi )
