We went there for dinner since it's very close to our hotel and we got recommended from front desk. The restaurant look beautiful and stuff are nice But we are the only table there Food arriving my soup was good but my other dish is so so. It didn't give you the wow feeling.

We had a wonderful dinner here. The pesto pasta dish was fantastic with fresh tomatoes to top it off. The service was perfect and the decor modern and spotless. Good wine selection too.

I went to this restaurant in an off season period and the service was great. Their wine selection is vast, with local and international choices. What to say about the food? Incredible taste and refined presentation. Besides that, a great view by the Piaza Duomo. I totally recommend this restaurant if you're staying in Orvieto.

This restaurant is to one side of the Duomo, and offers good seating outside and in. It offers traditional Umbrian fare : the food was exceptional, and the service attentive without being intrusive. All staff spoke English and made great recommendations re local wines. Do try the Orvieto, San Giovanni del la sale, by Antinori- great wine at a good... More

We didn't expect much as we knew it's usually better to avoid restaurants on touristic squares, but this restaurant was definitely an exception: truly amazing. Excellent quality for more than reasonable prices and great service. If i ever go back to Orvieto, i know where i'll be having diner.

This restaurant is situated right on the Duomo square. Light modern decor and if you're lucky you get a seat on the upholstered bench. The service is excellent and friendly. I had the pate for starters and my son had the stuffed rabbit. We then had pork filet and breaded lamb chops. Not knowing the wine selection we asked for... More

Not a great experience here. The food was good enough when it arrived but it came out in the wrong order and we were more or less ignored. It was probably just a bad night.

Fabulous location ( just in front of the majestic Duomo ) The decor inside is a bit "cold" but adequate . Service is very attentive and the kitchen very organized (you don't have to wait ages for your order and they come all together ! ) The menu uses very traditional Umbrian ingredients of good quality and are prepared with...

Set just north of the historic duomo, this clean, cool and fresh restaurant is quite a nice surprise. The cacio di pepe (a tradional dish) was perfection and rich in flavor. The grilled eggplant with shavings of zucchini was delicately prepared and full of flavor. The pork medallions wrapped in pancetta were delicious. The service was great and they were... More

A delightful small restaurant looking out at the Duomo. Seating outside but chased inside due to a shower. Lovely staff, tasty food, good choices and certainly value for money. We shall hope to visit again when in Orvieto.

Description
The principal ingredient of our kitchen is love. Love for the high-quality products of the territory – Umbrian and Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil, chianina beef, truffles, cheeses – and for the magical blends of new and subtle flavors, the underlying premise of the gastronomic journey we propose. Dishes based on fish betray oriental inspiration, grafted onto Tuscan roots. Desserts range from the classics of the pastry chef to original mouth-watering delicacies.
