“Just relax and enjoy”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Shake hands with the owner and cook, sit down, and let things happen. Incredible variety of antipasti with the most delicate tastes, supurb paste, tagliata de manza so soft, cheese, fruit and then the chocolate destert.... And all for an unbelievable reasonable price. I been eating here at least 5 times and each time I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is Umbrie!

“Not 5 star, but very good, honest food and hospitality.”
Reviewed June 7, 2012 via mobile

After reading the other english reviews, I couldn't believe any restaurant could be this good... and to be honest it is not.
But they do serve well cooked, interesting food and the owners are charming and very hospitable. The prices are good value and I do recommend this restaurant. If you go expecting good honest food ( and not the best food in Italy!) I am sure you won't be disappointed.

“where to find real home cooking”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Among some of the best food I have had in the last few years comes from home food. Easy for me because I am Italian, but not so easy for travelers who often don't have access to local food besides restaurants and shops. Going to Osteria del Teatro is like to be invited at home by friends. The place actually looks like a regular restaurant, but the food is extraordinary and totally authentic. Pierino the owner will come and talk to you rather than bringing a menu (he does speak English). Like in a proper house is has a few appetizers based often on home made preserves and patès. Then he will have one or two types of pasta and most likely one meat dish and one dessert. One does not suffer of the lack of choice because everything is just perfect, fresh and made with the best ingredients, like your best Italian friend would do if inviting you for dinner. The chocolate souffle is to die for! Please get away from the tourist path and try this real gem.

“The FINEST meal & most Delightful Hospitality in Umbria!”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

We were referred to Pierino by a friend, a culinary instructor form Assisi. Lucky us. Now we can pass along this gem to others. The town of Foligno is exquisite. It is worth taking a full day to wander. While there, do not waste your time dining around, go directly to Osteria del Teatro and plan to spend several hours there, if you can. Pierino is the most gracious host. He is a happy and simple man, and a gifted chef. Every morsel from his kitchen is carefully prepared, to age old traditions, and served with such aplomb, you will feel treated like royalty. We dined outside, under an umbrella, accompanied by Pierino and joined by others form Foligno. We would not be able to choose what we favored from his menu. Every item and then the next was more delicious that we anticipated, or imagined. You will be treated with the same warmth. We plan to detour to Foligno again, for the pleasure of another visit to Osteria del Teatro. In the meantime, do visit Pierino for us, and revel in the visit!
