Do not miss an opportunity to eat here if you're in Norcia. The setting - a beautiful glass porch with a view of the valley, attached to an ancient stone house. The service - friendly, generous, warm. The food - best ricotta and lasagne I've ever tasted. I only wish we had eaten here earlier and more frequently during out... More

My wife and I and our son wanted to get out of Rome for a day (we live here) for a great Umbrian meal. We first visited Norcia and then went to Il Casale degli Amici, some 2-3 miles out of town. My wife and I are foodies, and the meal blew us away. Since it was January 1st and... More

Nice, clean, excellent taste....architecture and landscape fantastic. Despite the restaurant was full, the dishes was excellent and timing we wait not too long. Price/cost effective. Good job!

We came back to the Casale degli Amici two years after our first visit and for nearly three weeks we enjoyed again the wonderful hospitality of the family running this agriturismo. The casale is made up of traditional stone buildings with many original features and it is also a working farm producing, among other things, lentils, farro, meat and vegetables... More

We stayed one night and ate in the restaurant. This was a very good experience. It is surrounded by lovely and extensive views, our bedroom was comfortable with a large bed. We had a very good meal in their restaurant, which is very attractive and good value. The service is good, with uniformed staff. We left our passports at reception... More

We stayed at Il Casale degli Amici one night, and had dinner in their wonderful restaurant, out on the terrace with a stunning view. Host Ernesto and his family are very welcoming, and the food is excellent. We had starters of local ham, salami and cheeses, then freshly cooked home-made pasta, one with fresh prawns, and the other with local... More

The only thing worth coming back for was the lasagna, that was really good. The rest was just not very fresh tasting or good . The place advertises as an Agroturismo, but not really that at all, just an inn outside of town with mediocre food, that definitely was not produced by them and their animals. Don't waste you time...

We organized a dinner for 50 people here as part of our wedding. It was literally one of the best meals of my life, and we go to many top-end restaurants around the world. Keep in mind that it's located in the truffle and cured meat capital of Italy. The owner, Ernesto, helped prepare four courses plus....: - a full... More
