I was looking for a place to relax and enjoy a simple meal. The ambience is great with garden opportunity. I have had a lot of pasta in 36 years in Italy - the fava, pecorino, pancetta sauce was one of the best.

I had lunch in La Buca di Bacco on a day trip to Orvieto. I chose it from all the restaurants nearby because it looked to cater mainly for Italians, with no menu displayed in English. That was a good call because most of the other diners were Italian, and the food was excellent. I chose the Wild Boar menu... More

This evening we visited the pizzeria for a pizza. My San Giuseppe had a very crusty bottom and nice toppings. My wife had a piazza bianca - without tomato sauce - Corsica was the name and had four cheeses on it. Nice ambiance, good service and a nice price. For people who want the best: you can order your pizza... More

Ate at this cafe several times as we were staying in Todi for six weeks and brought several groups of friends to Orvieto.

We dropped in for a quick lunch. We ordered a pizza. This turned out to be an exelent choice. The pizza's were very tasty with fresh toppings and more important a very good crispy pizza bottom. If you go from the bussy centre of the town to St. Patricks Well make a stop here and enjoy. Only point of critisism... More

We were recommended by a local to this restaurant. Usually the recommendation by local are spot on but La Buca di Bacco definitely failed to deliver. As the title of my review summarizes, it is all I can remember about the unmemorable dining experience. The pasta was under-cooked and rather bland, the house wine tasted strange and the service very... More

Absolutely not recommendable in any aspect. Very lazy service, food was incredible salty... 2 eur for old bread etc. Unfortunately we have not read the reviews before visiting this restaurant.
