Some of the best food I ate in Italy. Outstanding. If you are visiting Montefalco you will want to eat here every night! Or if you are nearby you must go for dinner (or lunch). I really can't emphasise how good the food is. Lovely, lovely staff too. Perfect setting on the square. Writing this makes me desperate to go back!

We like Umbria and many cities around and of course Montefalco wine. But my last trip turned to be very disappointed and may not go to this area again. We stopped to have lunch in Piazza de Comune in Montefalco but found out that not only food was disappointed but the waiter was very rude. I was surprised to see how this place got good recommendation in Tripadvisor !!!!!

I notice this restaurant is getting excellent reviews in Trip Adviser and has a certificate of excellence. I don't know what happened to the food when we were there recently because our experience was not as good. The place was recommended by several locals so we were really looking forward to a special lunchtime meal. The lovely large outdoor patio in the main square was full. The special starters were nice- a potato and gorganzola tart with zucchini flower stuffed with ricotta; and a zucchini tomato tart with a feuille stuffed with ricotta. Both were nicely presented but they were not overly flavourful. The pasta dishes were really disappointing. One was a melanzane ravioli; the other a sagrantino wine tagliatelle. Neither had much flavour and the pasta was overcooked. In almost every restaurant we visited in Umbria we could count on al dente pasta. Not here. I assume the ingredients were not freshly prepared and as a result the food had lost its flavour. Perhaps this place has overextended itself or perhaps it was just an off day but it was not the good Italian meal we were expecting and that other commentators reported.

Thank you to L'Alchimista for helping plan and host an amazing 80th birthday party. Food was incredible and service was outstanding. Your
We chose to go with a pre-set menu, as we were a party of 15 and we wanted to take the guesswork out of everything. It was the way to go!!! Delicious food and wine flowed all evening as we enjoyed our time together in Italy.

Back again and still amazing food. Lovely people and the widest range of gluten free food imaginable. The gluten free bread is lovely - best found anywhere. Can't wait for September when we'll be back again.
