I already see a review here from another member of our party - spoiler alert: she loved it. So let me add a few points. The chef here is self taught, and, unlike a lot of the very talented graduates of Italian culinary schools, likes to deviate from traditional recipes. So I saw a lot of dishes that I didn't... More

Hands down, this was the best place we ate during our two week tour of Umbria. The red onion soup with truffles and a pouched egg was divine as were the stuffed zucchini flowers. They handled our large family with respect and tolerated our six toddles. I would drive 200 km to eat here again.

We ate very well indeed here, I enjoyed a cheese souffle with courgette mousse and pancetta and tomato garnish, followed by beautifully cooked sliced steak with radicchio and walnuts. Very reasonably priced. I would love to come back.

My first visit to L'Alchmista was thoroughly enjoyable. The meal, all four courses were superb, the ambience delightful. It was so good that we had to go back for another meal and again we were not disappointed

This was my first time in this restaurant and now in the summer time it's nice to eat outside. We all ate different food and all were great : e.g. antipasto frittata fiori di zucchini, zuppa di Cannara cipolla, tortellini, and agnello alla grill con patate and green salad. They also have a great enoteca including all possible local Montefalco... More

Visiting Montefalco in early August we opted to eat outside, literally on the main square. Service was friendly and prompt. We started with an excellent panzanella salad that included a few slices of buffalo mozzarella on the side (not your usual panzanella but welcome nonetheless). For mains we had grilled baby lamb chops and boneless stuffed chicken thigh and separate... More

Absolutely excellent restaurant with great food and wine. Using local produce skilfully put together menu at reasonable prices. You need to book as it is always full another testament to its glowing local reputation. Highly recommended.

The surroundings are great, the staff is friendly and the food... It is to die for. Really, if I should pick one place on earth where I would have to spend the rest of my dinnertime's for the rest of my life, this would be it.
