We visited this restaurant for lunch. The menu is completely in Italian, and the wait staff speaks no English. Not as problem on this day. The total cost of lunch (shared appetizer, two second courses, water and coperato, and 2 espressos was 37 euros. Seemed low, considering I ordered a meat course and it ended up being a NY strip...

We went to this restaurant 5 years ago and promised ourselves to go again next time we would be in the region. The food is great, the staff is friendly, and the restaurant itself is pretty unique.

If you have paid a visit to the caves we really recommend spending your lunch or dinner at this place. Top ravioli and local mix grill. Good combo with a glass of Verdicchio and topping it off with some grappa.

We came back to the town of Genga to try this restaurant and it was fabulous. Great, typical, local food, in a fantastic context. This place was the wine cellar of a castle carved out of the pinky sedimentary rock, and we got to eat in this part of the restaurant. Delicious, abundant food, cooked and served by the super...

After visiting Grotte di Frasassi we went to Genga for lunch and ended up in La Locanda del Papa. We did have a great lunch. Starting with anti pasti de la casa. Many different tastes, warm and cold. A very good starter. For primi we ordered pasta, fresh home made, great taste, but to much. As we also ordered secondi,... More

I'm surprised by some of the earlier reviews (from over a year ago) saying the food was good at this restaurant. We just ate there, on a Sunday, a couple of days ago. It was, hands down, the worst meal I've ever had in Italy. My sister-in-law, who is an Italian citizen and has lived here for 28 years, said... More

We were wandering around the town of Genga after visiting Frasassi and hoping we could find lunch. I was a bit unsure at first and although my boyfriend understands Italian better than I do we weren't sure what to expect. The menu was handwritten, leading me to believe that the menu changes regularly, if not daily. We each had an... More
