This restaurant and hotel is located in the center of Norcia. We were driving thru central Italy and this was recommended as a stopping point for a look --- we could have spent 2 full days looking. This is one of the most charming towns we have ever seen. This is a huge restaurant but we chose to sit outside... More

Two of us went for lunch midweek in July and sat outside under the awning. The traditional food we had, lentils with sausage and wild boar was fine but not exceptional. What was exceptional was the lack of organisation and speed of service. We waited ages to have our order taken. Then they came back again to confirm which salads... More

Terrible service! We've been here an hour and have yet to be served. We finally told our waiter to forget it and they tried to charge us for a wine far more expensive than we ordered. We were the third couple to walk out .

We were staying in the Hotel Grotta Azzurra, so decided to try the restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food is fabulous, the service is great and the atmosphere terrific.

We ordered risotto with truffle which was very good and with a lot of truffle - kind of expensive though, but good - and we have wild pork for second dish. All pretty good and the also served some conventional gluten-free bread for us which was nice.

We ate here in September and had a good experience. The atmosphere was real nice, the staff was also real nice, and the food was good not great. In all I would try this place again.

Excellent local food. It is a large, loud, busy restaurant and it does fill up, so book ahead. If pork products are not your thing, best to avoid. (Same could be said of the whole town...) The sausages and lentils are a must. Seriously, one of the best things I have ever eaten. The bread, made in house, is fantastic.... More

My wife and I went on a gastronomic tour of Italy and we spend five nights at the Grotta Azzurra in Norcia. The restaurant served absolutely spectacular food. I would be hard pressed to say which was my favorite dish although they did have a wood burning grill that turned out fantastic grilled meats. The pasta dishes were divine with... More

Whether you eat inside or on the (rather cramped) terrace, the quality of the food and the service, along with set menus or carte, this is a lovely, family run restaurant. The manager/owner loves to show you around the vaulted rooms inside, especially the large, open fire where all the meat is roasted on order. Wonderful!

Norcia is known for truffels, though you should not expect any spectacular taste when not in truffle season. Anyway, we enjoyed the meal at this restaurant, ordering also food without truffles which was good. The service was ok, but the wine recommendations were not good. The terrace is nice, but be sure to make a reservation as it gets full... More
