We were visiting the charming Umbrian town of Citta della Pieve and searching for an authentic,non touristic establishment.We opted to sit outside,the terrace had a pleasant view and our young waiter presented the menu of the day consisting of 4 antipasti,4 primi and 4 secondi..all were very tempting and using local ingredients.We chose a local Umbrian red wine from the nearby Lago di Trasimeno,very pleasant and meanwhile the chef came out and explained the menu.We took some antipasti to share,including a delicous farro salad,followed by 2 pastas both homemade and excellent.We had a little space for secondi and a small dessert..but everything was cooked so well and was'nt heavy you did'nt feel stuffed.So with extra wine,coffee and grappa we spent less than 30 EUR a head.Can recommend this place for the creativity of the young chef,the excellent wine and service.Overall,one of my best dining experiences of all time!

We had an outstanding lunch here in early August. The three courses I had and the two my girlfriend had were all prepared with a respect to the ingredients, but with an originality that was refreshing AND delicious. We were in Italy eating well for six weeks and this was one of the top five lunches. The cucumber soup I had at Bistrot Del Duca was enough to make me want to come back. for more on this soup and two others on our trip check this link http://krikorianwrites.com/blog/2013/9/21/g9fskiydeqzmanf8v87utz69b4gzmf

Food, service and atmosphere were top! This place is run by a team of young and very enthousiastic people. The view is spectacular. Great atmosphere and of course, very good food.

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”.
