This was an complete enjoyable lunch. Central in Viterbo this gave us everything you expect from a top restaurant! Service, food, wine, interior, comfort, atmosfere... A top place for couples.

Just walked in after shopping in Viterbo for a morning. Pleasant cool a/c interior and very welcoming owner manager . Not formal at all at lunch as other reviews would suggest. It's not a pizza place but the food was modern Italian using good local produce. We had osso bucco done on the Roman fashion without a gremolata, very good with some decoration of shaved veg.
A glass of local wine and a coffee and reasonable price .

Both the food and wine were superb but do make sure you book particularly for dinner at weekends. A lot smarter and more formal than the other restaurants we ate in - with handwritten menus (an English menu is available) and helpful staff. The antipasto is truly delicious and one is more than sufficient for two diners. Once tried, you will want to return.

Having just come home from a 5 week tour of Spain and Italy, visiting Madrid, Florence and Rome I would have never thought that the best meal of the trip would be in a place like Vitebro
We went to this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. To our surprise and delight the food was superb - especially the pork knuckle. 'While that may not sound inmediately appealing, it was vey different from a cabbage and potato schweinenhaxen - it was delicate and delicious
In the unlikel;y event that I would ever find myself in Vitebro again - I would make a point of going back, . The other dishes were also quite good and the wine list was comprehensive
The lack of out outdoor tables was slight a disappointment, but to be honest the neighbourhood and the streetscape are not that fantastic anyway, and the food more than made up for it
A rare gem indeed

Once again TripAdvisor didn't let us down ... If in Viterbo Il Grottino is the lace to go.
The decor is typical of the restaurant's name ... The little cave... The lighting and background music perfect.
The service and the timing of the courses ... Excellent.
and what about the food ... ?
Hand written menu with a choice 6-7 antipasti, 6-7 first and 6-7 second courses or a super set menu for just €25 which we didn't go for because we wanted to try some of the dishes which were not included.
Antipasto della casa ... One portion is enough for 2... Delicious.
My choice Tortelloni ricotta e pacchino and the Rabbit cooked in wine....
Her choice ... Tagliatelle asparagus and guanciale + parmigiana ...
Desert
All fantastic.

The best part .... Great value for money

Bravo Claudio ... Pity you are not in Rome!
