“Best meal that we had in Italy”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We took a day trip on the local bus from Orvieto to Bagnoregio and were looking for a place to have a relaxing lunch prior to the half hour walk to Civita. We happened to stumble across the Hotel Romantica Pucci (actually we walked right past it on the main road to Civita) and decided to give it a try.

Aside from the lovely glass atrium dining area, the food was ABSOLUTELY the best we had during our 2 week stay in Italy. I had a steak filet with truffles and my wife had risotto. The service was welcoming and total price was 33 euros !! We were so lucky to have experienced a slice of true small town Italy.

Admittedly Rick Steves' guidebook brought us here and we didn't really look anywhere else but we had no complaints. The location was great. It kind of reminded me of staying at my grandmother's house. Civita is definitely worth the walk up to see.

Bagnoregio is well off of the tourist path but well worth a detour (stunningly quaint Civita, an ancient hill town, is within walking distance). We opted to spend two nights here as an alternative to staying in nearby, but very busy, Orvieto. It was a good decision. This 5-room hotel is a bit hard to find (minimum signage), but the staff is extremely friendly and helpful once you arrive. The waitress in the hotel's restaurant came out and walked ahead of our car to lead us to the hotel's free parking lot on the back side of the hotel. Our room exceeded our expectations -- a bit dated but very large, very clean, and complete with a fully equipped bath. Breakfast was quite good (think homemade pastries). We also ate two dinners here and had an excellent dining experience both times. Everything is homemade and the pasta with truffles was especially memorable. There's not a lot of English spoken here, but enough to not get in the way of a pleasant stay (so don't let this deter you). We would stay here again in an instant for the friendliness and good food.

I was disappointed to read a recent negative review of this hotel, and my view could not be more contrary. What was probably not understood is that regional Italy has none of the advantages of tourist Italy - in other words, businesses in rural areas all fight for survival. Bagnoregio is a very small town, it has to compete with the bigger towns of Orvieto and Bolsena which are more geared to tourism. This is working class Italy, it is charming, intriguing and real. This hotel is well run, organised and customers are treated with care. I loved the graciousness, the kind attention that was given me of the staff. They were genuine, helpful and caring and bent over backwards to assist. It is in central Bagnoregio, just a walk away to see the amazing Civita di Bagnoregio, and short drives to Lake Bolsena and its various lakeside towns. I was very happy to be in a real, traditional and rural hotel rather than a hotel chain. I was there two nights. The first night I was the only guest. The breakfast table was nonetheless spread out as though royalty was visiting.

Rick Steves says that Hotel Romantica is charming and elegant. Instead it is dark and filled with dusty plastic flowers and nick-nacks. Each of the three times we entered the office, the owner was asleep or smoking. Hotel Romantica was our only disappointment in our month-long Italian vacation. Stay in Orvieto and take the easy and beautiful drive to Bagnoregio and Civita.

Room Tip: Leave immediately and stay in Orvieto..............

PUCCI AND ARMANDO were gracious hosts. The hotel truly Romantic, the food divine, and Civita-Bagnoregio enchanting. Pucci gave great advice on nearby sights to see and was ever helpful. Rick Steve's gave great advice on this one!

Very old and "dusty". I think we were the only ones there! Reeked of cigarette smoke as the owner smokes constantly.
