This is possibly the best restaurant in Orvieto. We had a wonderful dinner and fantastic tiramisu. The Umbriachelli fatti in casa al tartufo bianco was fantastic. When we go back to Italy this will be one of our main stops.

We ended up in this restaurant after getting lost through the beautiful streets of Orvieto, looking for our B&B, and realized afterwards it was just a few steps from the magnificent cathedral. Everything was outstanding: the hospitality, the service, the food...one of the best meals we had in Italy! The veggies were perfectly cooked, the flavors nicely balanced, the prices... More

Was a bit apprehensive when we first walked in as the restaurant was empty however it was midweek in January and the whole town was quiet. The food turned out to be very good. Started with a lovely cold meat platter. Just before the mains arrived the waiter brought out complimentary minestrone soup which was delicious. To follow we both... More

Had some umbricelli all'orvietana and some grilled vegetables. The pasta dish was great, and a very generous portion. The vegetables were scarce in amount and a bit too greasy. I wish they paid the same attention on side dishes as they do for main courses. It was nice to have a stroll around their underground cave/cellar though.

Our new favorite restaurant is Tipica Trattoria Etruscan Orvieto, for a leisurely 2-hour lunch of grilled veggies (zucchini, tomatoes, and eggplant), prosciutto (region specialty), minestrone (bean based), wild boar (region specialty), and crisp salad. We topped lunch with Orvieto's crisp, white wine (specialty), and red wine, finished with cappuccino and lemoncello. Our waiter, Averino, spoiled us. We were the only... More

This restaurant is near the Duomo and may be overlooked if you are only in the pedestrian area. It's worth finding! The restaurant was totally deserted on a Friday night in early November; the tourist season was over! The maitre 'd was overjoyed to see us and we had a very good meal there--my husband had homemade gnocchi with funghi... More

We entered this restaurant becasue it advertised the dessert 'zuppa inglese', which I fancy very much. At the end it turned out that they did not have it. What upset us most was the fact that the waiter from North Africa brought us an Orvieto wine pretending that it was produced by the famous 'Antinori' winery, while in fact it... More

Had pasta with tomato sauce. Taste was simple but also appetizing. The noodles were "Pici" which are thick, which is a warning if you like lighter pasta, this is heavier, but you can ask different pasta.

A meal out with friends in a warm, friendly and stylish restaurant, staff very helpful and charming, and wine choices first class. We enjoyed pasta with both black and white truffles, Florentina Steak, served with flourish, and delicious desserts. I would happily recommend this restaurant for any age group, couples and especially -four 'mature' ladies on a fun painting holiday... More

Just a second away from the Duomo, this restaurant has excellent food and service. Andrea was extremely funny and accommodating. At the end of the night we missed the last funiculare ride down the hill, so Andrea gave us a ride back to Orvieto Station in his car! Couldn't have asked for anything more. Great place especially on a quiet... More
