“These Kiwis love Olevm”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

One of our favourite locals in Montefalco. Beautifully flavoured food. Our host Daniella did not speak any English, but we managed to successfully communicate via lots of pointing, and mostly went with her recommendations, a wise move as it turned out, as the food was just wonderful. What a delightful place to spend a cool evening soaking up the atmosphere from our street side table. On one occasion, Daniella served us our wine (Grechetto - recommended white wine) and then introduced us to the owner of the wine label as she was passing in the street, how cool is that! Highly recommended, and we would love to return some day soon.

“Wonderful in Every Way”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This place is fantastic! The owners were so wonderful to us! We were not feeling well and wanted a little bite early in the evening and they graciously allowed us even though they were "technically" not yet serving dinner. The bruschetta and soup were incredible but the real find here is the olive oil which the owner produces. I brought some home and every time I have it I remember this place in Montefalco.

“Our first meal in Montefalco was delicious!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

The bright green olive oil that was the first of the season last November was so delicious that I tried to find a way to send a vat of it home. The rest of the food was equally wonderful - and served with a smile!

“Sidewalk splendor...”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

At oleum all it takes is your finding a seat at one of the 3 cozy street-side tables and settling in for a taste of Umbrian home cooking. The menu is limited but does it really matter when everything you're served is a little culinary explosion? The only thing that's basic here is the wine, which pairs nicely with the food but won't land olevm on the Wine Spectator award list. Still, for lots of smiles and a charming way to watch the people stroll up and down Montefalco's main drag this cannot be beat. A true gem!

“A must visit”
Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

A lovely little restaurant that also sells oils and other local items in montefalco. Include it on your visit here. It's small, with a menu that we had to blunder through as we dont speak italian , but well worth it. The owner makes everything in her little kitchen. And it's delicious. The bruschetta was unbelievable. I would have gone back if we had more time.
