I was visiting Orvieto with my wife and son, en route to Florence. This restaurant was near our hotel, and in the Piazza Duomo. I really don't have the words to describe how fantastic this experience was. From the friendly staff to the wonderful food,...More

We ate here for lunch and dinner. Our taste buds were blown away. The tagliatelle with truffle sauce was a perfect blend of subtle flavors. My risotto with zucchini was creamy and chewy. For dinner I had sauteed rabbit which was light and the lamb...More

Some of the most tastefull, well prepared food of our holiday i have eaten. The baked pecorino with pear was special, everything tasted great. Excellent service, especially from the lady who speaks english. Small detail: no baby changing facility.

Enjoyed the regional dishes - pork with balsamic vinegar, and salt cod with garbanzo beans. Surprised to find such an upscale place in a small town.

Possibly one of my favorite meals of my honeymoon. They had the best bread basket we'd gotten in Italy in 9 days at that point. The pappardelle with lamb ragu is killer. My wife loved her tagliatelle with duck sauce. We had a very nice...More

Dined at this one-star Michelin restaurant with friends last evening -- one of the best meals of our two-week stay in Tuscany and Umbria. Dining al fresco on a warm but breezy evening with the Duomo in the background made for a beautiful evening. Service...More

It all started with Alesandro. He greeted us at the door and made us feel at home. He graciously seated us in their outdoor seating in the piazza. He then explained the menu for us and recommended wines that were excellent. The food was superb....More

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. Desserts range from the classics of the pastry chef to original mouth-watering delicacies.
