Description: Il Cocco restaurant is located in the heart of the historic center of Orvieto, one of the most charming towns in Umbria, Italy. The restaurant is next to Piazza della Repubblica and the wonderful Town Hall Palace, in Via Garibaldi. Our restaurant offers a menu with many traditional dishes and is the ideal place to enjoy a meal in Orvieto. Inside our restaurant are available two quiet and well furnished rooms. Giancarlo, the owner, together with his staff, will be at your disposal. Our best dishes are based on local products, such as wild boar, truffle, porcini mushrooms, rabbit, veal, and much more. Moreover, our restaurant offers a great selection of local and national wines. We can host up to 45 people inside and 15 people outside. In fact, during the warm season, you can enjoy your meal in Orvieto while sitting at our outdoor tables on Via Garibaldi, just 20 meters from the unique Piazza della Repubblica and from the Sant'Andrea Church. We inform our customers that our fried mixed plate will be served again in the autumn season.

“typical Italian restaurant in the centre of Orvieto”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

This was the first restaurant we tried in Orvieto, staying there for a week. We have chosen it because it was full with only Italian people , mostly locals. And of course this is the best way to choose a restaurant in another country. Lovely dishes, a good menu-list. Enough choices. And if you want something that is not on the list: just ask. Maybe the next day, but they get it for you. Further a beautiful range of local wines. The first night (we went there three times), we took it all, the antipasti, primi, secundi, dolce and a good limoncello after. For the hotel we just had to cross the road, or small square. That was in total just under € 100 for two. But a bottle of wine + extra glasses and the limoncello. So in fact between €€ and €€€. Try this one when you are in beautiful Orvieto.

“Best Minestrone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Had dinner at Il Cocco last night, 5/25/14 and enjoyed everything: minestrone, melone and proscuitto, truffle tagliatelle, chicken breast with white truffle sauce, limone gelato. Well served by an English-conversant waiter. We highly recommend this restaurant and the local wines they serve.

“Great find for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

It was a great piece of luck to happen upon Cocco while we were walking through Orvieto centro. We sat outside under the awning and had a very tasty lunch of pasta and scaloppine with local wine. It was just perfect for a rainy day.
