“Great traditional italian food, modern presentation, friendly service”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We were lucky that a table just became available when were passing by and were looking for something to eat. We didn't regret that at all. Pure,local, fresh and natural ingredients, mostly italian customers, which helps if they speak a bit of English and can give some assistance on what to chose from the (limited) but excellent card. The lady owning this place speaks fluent .... Italian (and that is probably it). Worth going there. Excellent food (the appetizers were offered by the house), excellent wine (at a very reasonable price), and good service (despite the language handicap).
If you find a table available, don't go anywhere else (but as said by previous reviewers, it is really tiny).

“Perfect authentic home-cooked Italian food”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a perfect place for lunch. Small, very Italian... just perfect! I would recommend the anti-pasti - probably some of the best I have ever eaten. Basically everything on the menu tastes amazing. Lovely setting - only 3 tables outside though so get there early! We didn't have dinner there but I am sure it is equally as nice. Lovely staff. Just a perfect, very Italian, non-tourisy place to eat.

“Finally, the perfect Italian meal.”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We've had some good meals and some OK meals and some not so great meals in Umbria, but finally a perfect one. The woman who owns and runs this tiny restaurant in Montefalco makes her own olive oil and you've never tasted anything like it -- spicy, rich, sometimes flavoured with orange....the mixed antipasti to start had such exquisite morsels as tiny balls of buffala mozzarella with truffle sauce, and slices of pecorino cheese with a reduction jelly made from the local red wine. The pasta was sublime -- home made, simple, cooked to perfection. And the whole meal didn't cost any more than most of the mediocre to OK meals we've had. We're going back tomorrow. And the day after as well. Heaven.

“GREAT FOOD BUT BOOK EARLY”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Made several visits here over Christmas and the New Year and each time the food, the wine and the atmosphere were excellent. A bit crowded at lunchtime but that increases the enjoyment amongst the customers all enjoying the freshly prepared and tasty dishes and comparing their choices.

“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.
