We stayed in Citta for a Vespa arrangment. We had 2 times diner in this wonderfull little restaurant. It's really the best hidden adress in town !! The 'chef' has a limited menu but comes to your table and explanes every plate on the menu !! ( fun !) and what he creates is a lust for
'eyes and mouth' ; good flavours, nice presented, daring combination but always on the spot. And they have a fantastic wine list too !!! Be sure to make reservations !! ask adress at the tourist office... it's not easy to find !! but a search worth while !!! I think this is the best food in the heart of Umbria ... sollicitating for a Michelin star ??

Never having been to Citta Della Pieve we were just amazed as to what a little treasure this place is. We asked the owner of “La Fonderia Dell’Oro” (a little jewellery shop – they make all the jewellery themselves and we bought presents -) where we could eat and she recommended “Bistro Del Duca” and not what was recommended in our travel guide.
What a delight, the service, the food and wine. That the chef /owner Christian comes to the table himself and explains the full menu – changes daily – was a treat that one does not experience in many restaurants. All the visitors at the lunch time we were there all had a smile on their faces.
Will be back one day to this lovely town, jewellery shop and last not least “Bistro Del Duca”.

Was doing business in Citta Della Pieve the last couple of days and walked by Bistrot on Tuesday it was closed. Was dissapointed but was glad to be walking today in town and stumbled across the owner Christian walking thru Citta Della Pieve collecting the days groceries for the days menu. I came in while he was actually writing the menu by hand for the day!!! The choices on the menu were fresh and original..the local meats were exceptional and the spelt pasta with onions,sausage and cream was one of the best dishes I have had..Magnificent!
He started the meal with processco and ended with a saffron infused grappa...the olive oil he used was the best I have had in Italy.. The man does not miss on ingredients or sell short on quality..a true treat and treasure to eat here.

We went here on our fellow Trip Advisor's recommendations and enjoyed a delicious supper. Very friendly staff, pretty, small, traditional bistro-style restaurant with all food freshly cooked to order. Very popular with locals and tourists alike. the seasonal menu makes a nice change from the ubiquitous bruschetta and pork dishes on offer everywhere else. We enjoyed a delicious chilled cucumber soup followed by a saffron, walnut and blue cheese risotto - absolutely first rate. Plenty of fresh bread and a reasonable local wine (wine list is limited and not brilliant). The kids had delicious beef lasagne and our guest had a good monkfish dish with the most fantastic green beans - sweet and tender. Recommended.

We walked by this tiny outdoor restaurant in the evening and saw them putting down a little wooden platform for a stage. We asked and they said there would be music at dinner later that night - there was only one table left, so we reserved it. We came back later to claim the table which was flanked on one side by a lattice covered with blooming jasmine - when the breeze blew, we were surrounded by the sweet scent! As a vegan, I always wonder what I can find to eat, but there are usually some items that are possibilities. I had a zucchini pesto that was out of this world...it had zucchini, frutta secca (which I thought was dried fruit, but it turns out to be pine nuts which made total sense because it wasn't sweet at all) and mint, blended into a sauce and served over pasta. Everyone at the table loved it, and their own meals as well. And the music was fabulous - a lovely evening.
