We were brought to Zeppelin by friends who live in Orvieto.It's a wonderful understated Trattoria with a down home local feel. We drank some wonderful white wines from the area as well as a local red that was surprisingly good. There were 6 of us so we tasted a number of dishes. The gnochiettes were wonderful and
light; the wild boar in red wine delicious; tenderloin of beef with truffle sauce was excellent; a chickpea flan different and delicious; plus a really good selection of cured meats accompanied by balls of cantaloupe. It was all delicious with wonderful friendly service. I highly recommend it.

This is the first restaurant you pass once you have come up the escalators. As it was the first restaurant we saw before any sight seeing, we were not eager to commit. As one of our group was interested in learning whether there was indeed an authentic zeppelin connection we went inside. We were taken into the kitchen where we met Lorenzo, the Head Chef, and a smooth talking jovial salesman,who tried to convince us to do a cooking day. We were keen but unfortunately our friends were not so we would have had to pay more.

After sight seeing we decided to try Lorenzo's food and were not disappointed at all. Service was friendly and helpful. What else can I say - superb! Such delicate flavours, not only in the homeade bread and pasta but in all the dishes. Can't recommend it enough.

The staff was superb, the food outstanding. We took the 4 hour cooking class which wildly exceeded our expectations. Chef Lorenzo has a great command of the English language. We made far more food than I ever could have imagined. They also have a cooking class that starts at 7:15am with a truffle hunt before class!!! If we go back to Orvieto, we will most certainly take the class again.

very large restaurant that also offers cooking classes. We went for dinner, fresh bread and english speaking waiter. The portions were large and the prices were very good. Presentation was lovely and food was very tasty. The ambiance was a bit lacking, candles would have been nice. I recommend the chickpea baked dish of the house. It is the restaurants specialty, and I had never had anything like it! Quite yummy!

We first came across Zepplin last year and we eagerly looked forward to returning this year, they did not let us down. The food as ever was imaginative and beautifully cooked and the prices very reasonable. The menu is varied and perhaps embraces less tradional flavours than your more typical Italian restaurant.
