“ok!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

..nothing really to boast about.. i ordered a fish soup which was full of fish bones.. so all i was doing was pulling fish bopnes out of my mouth continuosly.. which was quite disgusting..the past was not bad.. i didnt really like the recyclyed paper place mats.. the service was really slow as the lady who cooked was also the same lady who served at the tables!! every time we wanted somthing we had to wait like 15-20 mins for her to step out of the kitchen!! the ambient is very plain so the whole time we waited for the lady to appear we literally had to twiddle our thumbs ... so very boring place!
even though the lady was kind im sorry the negative points linger and overtake her kindness...

“Small, quirky but great local experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2011

Not too may eateries in Narni so tried this one. It is a simple tiny plain restaurant down a small side street and when we went it was a one lady operation. The menu was VERY limited to 4 starters and 2 mains. We were not too sure either what they were as not translated and my basic Italian was struggling. In the end we ordered all 4 starters (one each) and mixed and matched. All were excellent but the bean soup won out as the best. Not a busy bustling place but the lady cook/waiter/barlady did an excellent job. A good local experience.

“Simple home cooking.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2010

The food here is what Italians call Casareccio (genuine homemade) and is prized. We ate homemade pasta here the first week of November. They could not offer an antipasto (but brought a dish of spicy chickpea puree and bread), nor a meat second course. Good for vegetarians as veg was on offer as a secondo. Apparently customers drive up from Rome and during the week it's quiet out of season, hence the limited choice. The pasta was covered with an excellent ragu sauce. Good coffee too. No menu, no prices but paid a reasonable € 26 for the simple meal. Worth seeking out.

“A must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2010

The restaurant is in the medieval village of Narni, at the end of an alley with a beautiful view. Both tables inside & outside are good. Menu is handwritten and the price is very good. Cash only, no credit cards. The "pollo con le mani" is very good, one of the best we've tried. Also the "pasticcio di chianina" with polenta is worth a try. It's different & good. The merengue with caramel dessert is excellent, not too sweet.

“We ate here our first & last days in Italy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2009

This restaurant is hard to find, but worth the search. Located on a steep, narrow street that overlooks the parking area of Narni, this small attractive restaurant is a gem. The small menu changes daily and is written on a napkin. The house specialty is chicken sauteed with white wine & sage. It's so good, my husband ordered it on both of our visits. I tried the pastas, which were fresh and tasty. The flourless chocolate torte (if available) , is also recommended. It is incredibly light. Our waitress' English wasn't the best (and our Italian was equal to her English), but the menu was easily understood and if a question arose, the chef/owner, who spoke several languages, was there to help.
