Delicious food in a super setting. Onion soup, amazing pasta with beans, bacon and pecorino and lovely flame grilled meats and veg (and rather cute loo like Alice going down the rabbit hole)

We went here on a day that was absolutely thundering with torrential rain. Had a great lunch with all food freshly prepared. House wine and service exceptional. Recommend

The restaurant is in a nice old building with a big open fireplace. They serve typical local dishes and good grilled meat. There's a good wine selection and the service is good. Nice place to have a good meal.

Our group of 8 went here for dinner on our last night in Italy. The restaurant is small and very inviting. Our waiter took the time to translate nearly the entire menu for us. We got a variety of courses and liked it all. The mixed grill secondi plate was especially delicious!

On a sunny Monday when other restaurants are closed, we came across this lovely location. The pasta was quite good as was the local sausage. A small but adequate wine list.

Had a few lunches and one dinner here. Consistent quality and friendly service. The beef carpaccio is delicious. Red wine choices are great.

We passed in San Gemini and we had a good lunch here. We ate great typical Tartufo pasta and good red wine! In my opinion just the desserts were not good ad the test of the food: avoid them! Not bad.

Dining at Taverna del Torchio is like stepping back in time. The experience of sights, sounds, smells and of course the delicious flavor of the food is memorable. You'll smell the wood burning in the brick oven before you round the corner and see the tables spilling into the old Roman crossroad. It is a great place to people watch... More

For lunch I had a delicious salad and then the ravioli while my mother had saffron risotto. Some of our friends tried the regional truffle specialty with pasta here. To us, this Taverna felt like a time machine to a romanticized version of the middle ages. The food was all high quality and hand made like eating at someone's house.... More

Have been twice over the last 4 days, both times for lunch. Staff are great and the food is rustic, charming and tasty . The truffle starter with eggs is divine and would recommend. Menus in English and Italian
