“Very good Trattorria”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Round the back of one of the churches this is a very friendly, unpretentious trattoria that serves excellent food at good prices. The pasta, gnocchi and meat dishes were all excellent. The staff are friendly and happy to let you take your time. The portions are very good sized and at the end they put a bottle of Limoncello on the table for you to help yourself.We would definitely go back there.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We had a simple lunch at Dal Francese in mid-June 2014. While there was nothing to complain about there was nothing noteworthy - though we had good memories of the place from years ago. The pasta dishes were very ordinary and their sauces were too salty, main dishes had a very mass-produced feel about them, the house wines were insipid. We wouldn't go back as the majority of equivalent restaurants in the area would be better.

However, I do commend the proprietor for not allowing animals into his restaurant, it's quite wrong for animal keepers to impose their pets on other diners.

“Truffle galore”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

When in Norcia, go for tartuffo. And that's what we did. We picked Dal Francese, not because it looked inviting on the outside (far from it) but because of the TA sticker on the door and the very nice atmosphere inside. A very mixed crowd, with plenty of locals judging from the way the waiters welcomed most of them by name. As tourist we were made to feel just as welcome. Service was quick and friendly and the food excellent. Most of the choices involved tartuffo in some way, but there were plenty of non-tartuffo options. But hey, when in Norcia....
