Good was excellent all around, good service, reasonable price. Even though it's on a street, traffic was quiet over the lunch time so we could enjoy the sights and sounds.

Great lunch! Enjoyed a pear carpaccio with cheese and raisins and a very hearty wild boar stew. Service was okay and prices were fair.

We are here at the recommendation of the owner of our b&b. We arrived on what must be the early side of dinner for Italy because it was mostly empty, but by 9:30 it was full and lively! We ordered a pear capriccio for an appetizer which I highly recommend. Beautiful presentation and delicious combination of food. I had the... More

Although we were the only people there, we were given a table by the door with the computer behind us! That was my only complaint. We had a pear carpaccio, cheese, raisins and walnut salad, My husband had a wild boar stew and I had a stewed chicken. We had a bottle of very nice wine.

Once we discovered this little gem we didn't eat anywhere else. There are three things that make for good dining that a restaurant can provide - ambiance, great food and great service. This restaurant has all three. The restaurant is situate about half way up rise to the town center on Corsa Cavour, a cobbled "main" street lined with period... More

We were visiting Orvieto and stopped in for lunch. Off season is always dicey, and most places near the funicular were closed. We pressed in up into the ZTL and found this place. Only one local was eating when we walked in, but the place had a nice rustic vibe and we stayed. Service was wonderful. We each had the... More

Our B&B recommended this for lunch. Very friendly service even if they do not speak a lot of English. I selected the special fresh pasta (vegetarian) which was very good. My husband ordered the chicken dish typical of the region and he raved about it. We would definitely go back.

A group of 7 had lunch here as part of our stop in Orvieto in the middle of an excursion during our cruise. Having lunch here is as much of an attraction as all the other things to do in Orvieto. Dont hold back from ordering and sharing its appetizers, if you are lucky you will have a chance to... More

I spent three weeks eating my way through Italy, dining in restaurants at every price point and this is one of my favorites. It is very simple, and I dropped in for lunch without any lofty expectations. What a surprise - across the board, this was some of the best food we had in Italy. The homemade soups are really...

Osteria with gluten-free kitchen (certified AIC), we serve traditional italian food with a selected list of Umbria's Wines. Antica Cantina is a Smart place to stay, at least for us: after all, if you ask the landlord how is the wine, he Will always answers that is good !! We are women, we like to host people, see their smile and feel good. See you there!
