“A wonderful experience!”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

Me and my mother highly appreciated alla balestra, its impeccable service and savory dishes- trying a delicious plate of antipasti, croquettes, tagliatelle al ragu and tagliatta. It is the restaurant of Gubbio that we appreciate the most and have a very fond memory of it

“Nice pizza for a low cost & good service!”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

Ate here after reading praises from tripadvisor.

Nice and friendly place with good value for money. My pizza was nice and crisp, but a little longer in the oven would've done it good.

House wines were cheap and average at best.

Right after we got our food the place was packed with locals and as Italians are, they were noisy :-)

“Amazing !”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant during our stay in Gubbio and it was amazing! We had caprese (tomato and mozzarella) and the cheese was incredible and spongy. We also had their pizza, which was the best in Gubbio. I also recommend the lasagna, delicious. The house wine is very good and very cheap. Everyone was very welcoming and the service was great. I recommend it for a romantic evening or a family outing. The price is very affordable as well, we had all of the above for 40 euros. It was just amazing!

“Our favourite restaurant in the whole of Italy”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

This is a fabulous restaurant; Marco, the owner, is very welcoming, the setting is lovely, the food is absolutely superb (their ragu sauce should be bottled and sold and the sformatina di zuchinna and antipasti are to die for), the staff are helpful and very friendly and the prices are very good. You will have a wonderful time here - say hello to Marco from us.

“A nice place for a pizza or else in Gubbio”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

My partner and I visited this place in July 2011 and we were happy about out choice. The place is pretty popular not only with tourists but also with locals as you can enjoy a meal in the nice terrace. The choice is pretty wide - from pizzas to local specialties - prices are pretty cheap and the service is fast. Don't expect nothing fancy, but you get good value for your money.
