Al centro di Viterbo la nostra Osteria propone una cucina semplice, del territorio e genuina. La cucina viterbese si caratterizza per paste fresche come i lombrichelli, le fettuccine e i ripieni conditi con i prodotti di stagione. I secondi di carne allevata nei nostri allevamenti della tuscia ricalcano la tradizione contadina e la semplicita della cultura enogastonomica laziale. Ottima la pizza lievitata e maturata nelle 24 ore. Ricca la carta dei vini e delle birre che sta virando verso una proposta sempre piu regionale. Pane, paste e dolci fatti in casa

A lovely venue, mixed with excellent food and great atmosphere makes this place a must-see in Viterbo. There is also a wide selection of vegetarian/vegan dishes whith ingredients of undoubtly top quality. The slow food menu is not expensive at all, if you consider everything is homemade and locally grown/produced. To me this restaurant deserves all the Michelin stars decorating... More

This restaurant has really good food and wonderful local wines. I have had pizza twice and meat once. The chicken wasn't great but steaks were very good. The mixed antipasto is wonderful - I really enjoyed the pizza. This is a 'slow food' restaurant and everything is local - the main wine on the tables are 15 euro but well... More

Part of the 'slow food' movement this is an excellent restaurant with wonderfully welcoming staff. Food is very reasonable (pizza and pasta around 10euros), wine is excellent and all sourced locally.

My second pizza in Viterbo suffered greatly in contrast with my first...why? The crust was tough as leather, the toppings tasted as stale as the crust. It was an effort to eat, even with sharp knife and fork. Nothing tasty about this, it was ugly to see, had an odd odor and tasted like it was made by someone who... More

this is no osteria or trattoria, it's a bit on the fancy side, but the quality of the food fully justifies it. it offers a great atmosphere, spectacular wines, super selection of dishes and nibbles... we had an antipasto misto between the two of us, it was almost as big as two meals! you MUST try the aleatico rosso from...

Very solid place to eat in the heart of Viterbo. Good appetizers, pasta dishes, and meats as well. The service was exceptional. Our waiter was Sardinian and had a real handle on social skills and restaurant etiquette. The price was decent and I would go back for a second meal. I guess that is the ultimate test.

This was our last evening in viterbo and having eaten well until now, we were hoping for a good meal. This was not to be. We started with antipasto misto. This was poor and dominated by vegetables in a tempura batter. The batter was heavy, tasteless and the vegetables inside were overwhelmed. My husband had a pizza which was OK... More

A bit radical chic, but special food, for a good price, good atmopshere. Not the typical turistica situation. Very good choice of wines.
