We visited this place for lunch. The service was not great in my opinion. They made very little effort to help us understand what we were ordering, and I recall thinking when some other Americans came in (who obviously knew much less Italian than I do) how difficult a time they would have with this waitress. They changed our waitress... More

Went to San Gemini for a day trip from a small town in Umbria (Ferentillo). Walked around and found this quaint, lovely restaurant. This is a small, authentic restaurant with typical cuisine of the Umbria region of Italy. I had cariole amatriciana and enjoyed it immensely. Would definitely return to try other wonderful dishes.

Great setting, typically Umbrian restaurant in a picturesque village. Really good cooking, full of flavour. We ate far too much as the food was so good. Outstanding two antipasti, and every one enjoyed the pasta course. The secondi cooked on an open fire. Not cheap but good value and friendly, efficient service.

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.
