We stopped here for a quick lunch on a hot day. Fortunately, a number of outdoor chairs were available. We enjoyed terrific sandwiches and refreshing wine... The service was friendly and the pricing is reasonable. This was a wonderful location for taking some time to absorb the wonders of Orvieto. The mood was amazing...everyone seemed to be relishing the moment...from the restaurant staff...to the tourists and residents alike....We are hoping to return someday. If you are fortunate to be visiting Orvieto, take some quiet time for yourself and visit L’Oste del Re... Enjoy... :0)

This restaurant which is at the corner of Corso Cavour and Via del Duomo is deceptively large... From the street it looks small, though very inviting, but they have at least one upstairs dining floor and it looked like they had another. We were there on a busy Saturday. There were six of us... three Canadians and three friends from Rome... The service was attentive and friendly even during a very busy saturday lunch rush but the food, from the amazing charcuterie and cheese appetizer platters to the pasta mains (if you love wild boar, this is your restaurant) to the desserts (their chestnuts stewed in vin cotto served in lightly sweetened heavenly creamy ricotta and a hazelnut sauce was probably one of the most brilliant desserts I have ever tasted) are all outstanding. When I congratuled the owner on the dessert it was obvious thatshe took immense pride in the food they served. She mentioned that it had taken her years to find the right ricotta, and that she has. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any visitor to Orvieto and can't wait to go back again.

Maybe we should have ordered differently but both pasta dishes we ordered were quite bland and the meat in one was very tough. I guess the suggestion here would be to stay with the salumi.

The place is at the Main Street of this lovely town. We had very very tasty house wine and two plates of wild boar. The food was really very good! Soft tasty meet! Big portions!

The only "but" is that they did not accept the credit cards at that moment and did not worn us about it. The rest was perfect.

I do recommend to visit this place. The most of other restaurants are pizzerias. This one is special
