I loved this place, the food was fantastic , the service was great and the the atmosphere was also great. We went there for lunch and had the full recommended menu. Every dish was an amazing surprise, it was beyond expectations. I would say this place is on my top 5 restaurants list !

“The highlight of our holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

A week's holiday in a wonderful Villa Pulciana and the last evening's meal in a restaurant in Orvieto.- the perfect ending for a perfect holiday. I Sette Consoli - a mysterious little corner of a piazza. We were about the first customers that evening . Well, coming from Scandinavia we eat earlier. :) We walked thru the restaurant and climbed the stairs up and ended up in the garden in the back yard in a gazebo. We stepped backwards in time into the atmosphere of the Tsechovian time. It was such a warm, lazy and cosy feeling. The tables with spotless white tablecloths, with cotton napkins. They make one feel so appreciated. The service was one of the best I have ever experienced. She made us feel very special. Our group was from 11 months to 86 yrs of age. The two children were treated as special guests.
The food - I have lots of experience of excellent food. The food was very well prepared. The menu was done with care and the food was prepared for us from scratch and not just warmed up. We followed the other tables being waited with different food and everyone's meal looked very good and made us wonder whether we should have this or that one. The desserts pampered our palates and crowned our superb meal. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant. But the staff of this restaurant- they gave our meal the golden rim. Even afterwards, since we forgot something behind and got sent it to us .

“charming outdoor terrace area in quiet setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

This was such a beautiful peaceful spot. The food was incredible and the service- our waitress was from Romania, was fantastic. It is such a hidden gem. If you were just randomly touring the streets of orvieto, you would never find this place. Also, if you walk in and see the interior, it is just ok but, step outside and it is like you are in your own secret garden.

“Garden venue with good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

The front of the restaurant and indoor dining area are pretty underwhelming, but walk on through to the garden and you'll be very pleasantly surprised. We had lunch here in the shade if the gazebo. The food is very good; the stuffed zucchini flowers are highly recommended. The roasted goat was also well cooked but too salty. Wines by the glass were excellent and reasonably priced allowing us to try a couple of local types.
