This restaurant makes a big issue of sourcing produce locally, from farm to table. The food presented, however, was neither special nor unique. The first course portion of umbrichelli was smaller than what we would normally expect from a restaurant in Orvieto. The tagliata was much too chewey. The salt cod was a bit expensive for what was presented but it was very tasty. We received two large baskets of bread, some of which the server defined as home-made, but we have always found that when we are offered loads of bread at the beginning of a meal the portions of the meal itself are smaller-than-average and the bread is to fill you beforehand and that was the case here.

A little out of the way but definitely worth the effort to locate (on Piazza XXIX Marzo). Valentina serves the freshest most amazing organic food, all sourced from local producers. We shared a great place of goat's cheese with little pomegranate seeds for lunch here in mid October and, following this, a superb pumpkin (zucca) rissoto and tagliolini with pork ragu. All washed down with a lovely glass or two of the local Orvieto classico, recommended by Valentina of course. A wonderful, relaxing lunch. Great music too! We cannot not recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Can't tell what was better, the lovely service we got from the waitress, or the excellent food we had! We had pasta and meat. Pasta was excellent, but the meat is one of the best I ever had. The music was nice, then she played the Brazilian music radio because of us! Highly recommend!

5 of us, who had rented a villa in Umbria, enjoyed a long leisurely lunch in Orvieto at al Saltapicchio, whose chef/owner is an engaging young woman named Valentina. We began with an antipasto of the most amazing mozzarella, the very fresh type with the creamy center only found in Italy, and which Valentina said she had delivered by a local farmer once a week. It was accompanied by fresh Braesola and prosciutto and an amazing foccacia and arugula. We also enjoyed 2 pastas and pork, chicken and veal as entrees. In a refreshingly contemporary atmosphere on a sleepy square away from the more touristy areas of Orvieto, and accompanied by a lovelyOrvieto Classico Superiore wine from Palazone, we enjoyed the attention and wonderful cuisine of Valentina.

This summer we dined a few times at Saltapicchio for the 4th summer in a row. We absolutely love the food, atmosphere and, the chef/owner, Valentina. Everything is always so fresh, delicious and healthy.
