The restaurant located in the old (high) town is lovely and cozy; the Staff is nice, professional and friendly; the menu offers a variety of delicious dishes indeed! Too bad you may bump into some unfriendly rude locals who might just verbally attack you for no reason whatsoever:( The restaurant though deserves a visit for its high standard food, service...

Chanced on the restaurant close to the funicular station in the old town. Quaint building - looks like it was once a cellar or vaults. Staff very friendly - we could understand each other in spite of my very poor Italian. Atmosphere friendly and relaxed. Food very good and excellent value. House wines exceptional in both quality and value. (as... More

We popped in to see where the locals were going, the aroma told us to stay, we tried local dishes and all seven in our party could not find anything to fault. Together with one 20 euro bottle of Montefalco rosso riserva, the bill came to 120 euro for seven diners. In today's world that is a bargain.

Completely regular... Nothing special... Very greasy food. Although the employees try to be friendly... And is not that cheap!

I needed somewhere quick and convenient before I caught the funicular down to the new town for my flight home. This little trattoria is in the same square as the funicular and is cosy and traditional. I was glad I chose it as the service was efficient and friendly and the food was really good. I had the casoncelli which... More

The restaurant is located just a few meters away from the funicular, which makes it quite convenient for a start. What appealed to me the most was the rustic atmosphere, warm and welcoming. The food was quite good, I recommend the risotto. Friendly staff as well. Good experience overall but the "wow" factor was missing, which is why I'm not... More

The veal and mushrooms were good. The deserts of local style were also good. I give it 5 because it exceeded my expectations by a long way.

I was here with a group at lunchtime. The food was good and the service was excellent. The proprietor speaks English and he is happy to discuss the menu with customers. The bean and pasta soup is very tasty and a meal in itself. The restaurant is conveniently located near the Funicular station in the walled part of the city.
