Visited Civita di Bagnoregio and had lunch here. Enjoyed the bruschetta, pasta with meat sauce, and the vino rosso della casa. The food was cooked to order by the owner in the adjacent kitchen and served hot to the table. The whole experience seemed very quaint and authentic and we enjoyed a casual stroll afterwards through the streets to take... More

We ate here with a large group on little notice and were very happy they were able to accommodate us. The food and decor and quite simple, but very nicely done. Both the antipasti and pastas that we had, particularly the truffle pasta, were excellent. We would definitely go back if in Civita again, and we'd definitely recommend visiting Civita... More

My friend and I went to eat there for a late lunch after a suggestive walk in Civita di Bagnoregio and we ordered pasta with truffle sauce and meat with truffles and mushrooms. I have to admit food was not that good but overall it is a cute place for a stop...I suggest you to order pasta though! Cheap and... More

Very disappointing--this was a Rick Steve's recommended restaurant, and his pictures were on the walls and featured on the menu. The restaurant is small with less than 30 diners. There were 3 servers, but the service was poor, and we received our food piecemeal so that we were in the restaurant 3 hours for lunch. When the food did come,... More

Antica Forno restauranteur and chef Franco Sala cooks great food and brings to this wonderful restaurant the charm that makes him one of the most charming people I ever met. The food is fantastic, the wine amazing, prices reasonable, atmosphere in the restaurant beautiful. Lunch is served from 12 to 3; then Franco comes out and chats with the customers.... More

After the beautiful walk, we needed to pause for a delicious lunch! We picked the right spot. Polenta with salsizza was amazing! Gnocchi with pesto complemented the group as well. The tagliatelle ala medieval was also amazing. House wine fit the bill and all enjoyed. Give it a try!

Stumbled in on this place and was not disappointed. Don't let the casual lack of electricity fool you. This is the best restaurant in Civita. I went there for lunch with two friends and we had a great experience. Great food! We ordered several plates of the medieval pastas and found them to be the best in Italy! At the... More

Poped in while in Civita photoshooting. I ordered piciarelli truffle pasta, my husband tagliatelle alla medioevale. Both were great. Service rather slow, but the atmosphere and food is great!

We visited on a very busy hot Sunday and the waiting staff managed very well. The pasta was lovely. The main disappointment however was the fact that I ordered scallopini (translated on the menu as scallops) - and what arrived was veal (ugh!).
