The restaurant had indoor/outdoor seating. The glass/ceramic tables were beautiful, the waitstaff very responsive and an excellent meal. Wine was outstanding. We went back twice -once for lunch and dinner

This is a wonderful restaurant, we love to come back to. The ambiance is lovely. The menu is based on local tradition and product, with a very original and creative twist.

Original, creative and excellent cooking here. Though it is a busy restaurant (don’t go without a reservation) the entire service is done in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The dishes are great p.e. The starter with egg, truffle and a crème of red onion is...extremely good. The pasta dishes are home-made and have a size that you still can eat anything else afterwards. The hamburger was of a rarely seen composition and quality. If you are a gourmand this place shouldn’t be missed when in Montefalco.More

Great Food and service. The menu is traditional with a slight gourmet touch to the preparation, I would highly recommend it. The wine list is also very extensive and plenty of local and Italian wines to choose from. All the pasta dishes are made with...fresh pasta. The service was great and very responsive. The dessert is not to be missed. All around a great restaurant that is well worth the money.More

What a great surprise! At the central piazza is this enoteca situated, and they know about wine! If your are a wine lover, this is the place to be. They not only have great wines, they also know all about it. The food is at...the same time more then delicious, choose truffle as this is the heart of truffle country or the daily pasta. Homemade and obviously, fresh. For wines I could recommend Tenuta Bellafonte, very local very inspiring and great quality.More

By Umbria standards food is so so at best. But exceptional rudeness and lack of service is special indeed. Plus social distancing seems an unknown concept to staff. There are many better options.

During the corvid 19 crisis, L'Alchemista has responded to these difficult times by offering a home delivery service at weekends. Each week the menu is published and we can call or send a WhatsApp message this has become our special Sunday treat in these difficult...times. The food is excellent, as always, and we receive full instructions on how to reheat it. It has become the highlight of our week. Thank you Christina, Barbara, Patrizia and Claudio for giving us something to look forward to each week.More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel receptionist and we soon learnt why. Of the four restaurants in the piazza (I think) this was the only busy one. We should have booked when we walked past during the morning as lunch time it...was heaving but we did get a table for the four of us – thank you. Lots of gluten free options on the menu – we even had GF Tiramisu! The wines were listed according to vineyard; were even asked if we knew the vineyard; we didn’t so we took the waiters recommendation; good choice. Staff very friendly and efficient and heavy rain didn’t faze them as they relocated all the diners from outside tables to indoor ones without us getting too wet. Food, wine and service were all excellent and we thoroughly recommend you visit. Good food for Coeliacs.More

Fantastic place! The food was incredible, the atmosphere fantastic and the staff super friendly. They have a ton of wine and will let you try lots of them and buy just a glass of any of them. It was also very affordable. I highly recommend...it!More
