This is a busy restaurant, catering for locals and tourists alike. Most of the staff seemed young and they were certainly attentive and eager to please. We shared a gorgeous antipasto of sliced pork with pear and truffle and the pasta dishes that we had were delicious (papadelle with duck sauce and spaghetti carbonara). All the main course meat dishes... More

Busy restaurant i the middle of Gubbio. We primarily went because of their glutenfree options, and I was pleasantly surprised by their pizza. Good experience.

We were in Gubbio for market day and keen to find somewhere outside in a recommended restaurant so headed to Alla Balestra. Nice setting albeit it was very busy and although under cover - very hot - phew. A little bit touristy I would say - but kind of not surprising given the location. The service was efficient and friendly... More

Crowds are good in indicating an eatery's popularity, but one shoukd not feel crowded. It's not so touristy, there were plenty of locals, but it felt touristy - a bit McTalian. Nevertheless, the service was pretty good. I ordered a fixed "tipico menu" which was good, but not great. Adding in the wine and water (they gave me an amaro... More

My husband and I were exploring the medieval hill top town of Gubbio, Umbria, when we ran in to a "little" restaurant that looked inviting. The owner, dressed in a suit, welcomed us to his restaurant and a young lady took us to our table. From there on it only got better! We ordered a house specialty appetizer with several... More

I stopped in here with a group of friends for a truly great lunch. We all ordered pasta dishes and everyone enjoyed the meal so much that all plates were cleaned. the service was great and the staff very helpful and friendly. I can't wait to return.

Love coming here because it is such a relaxed place! This time both experiences were similar implying consistency. Ordered a pizza on both occasions as we were after something a little more causal on these occasions. However on one night also had the asparagus and zucchini mousse on ricotta cheese which was a delight visually and taste and texture wise... More

Had lunch there today, inspired by reviews. My wife's chicken cutlet was an enlarged size processed chicken, chicken McNugget. Tortellini in brodo was in a broth that canned chicken broth producers would have rejected. Veal piccata was the blandest veal in a watery sauce - presentation could not have been more entirely unimpressive. Sadly, service finished too close a second... More

I am always suprised when I find an excelent value in a tourist town. We found this lovely restraunt through a trip advisor search. The best pizza I have had during my three visits to Italy. My wife had a nice dinner salad that was very fresh and tasty. The facility is spotless with very nice rest rooms. The servers... More
