The Hosteria Posterula is not located in the center of Orvieto, but near the parking lot by the top of the tramway. Owing to that, they try harder. Service was good and selection pricey but varied. We had a carpaccio of meats, mushroom pasta, a sausage patty, tiramisu and a grappa. The food was very good and we suggest visitors... More

Service was friendly, but that is all. Ambiance rustic, neither positive or negative. A little bright for my taste. I still wish they would play italian music in italian restaurants. Oh well. Food was just ok. Again rustic. Not terrible, certainly not memorable. Wine list average. Nothing special in terms of quality and especially value. We spent more than 25... More

The individualized, custom service the staff provided me was unparalleled. The cook's astoundingly delicious Umbrichelli with Tartufo and anchovies and egg yolk was worth a book on the simplicity and wholeness of italian cuisine. The staff called me a cab while I finished my meal, knowing I was very tight on time. I highly recommend this simply-great restaurant day or... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by a native of Orvieto as the best restaurant in town. We ended up having dinner here and lunch the next day. The service and food is fantastic. The menu contains typical Umbrian dishes and original twists like their signature umbrichelli with egg yolk, truffles and anchovies (very delicate addition). Just go with it. We... More

Eating in the garden here is a really enchanting experience. Surrounded by prolific flowers, we felt we could really relax and enjoy our last night in Orvieto. The food was very rustic, very traditional and very generous. I had the strangozzi with ham and black truffle, my companion had the umbricelli. The osso bucco that followed was hearty to say...

Google maps is wrong. Look at the street address and follow the numbers. It is close to the funicular station. Food is insanely good, and people are friendly. Perfect pasta.

This is a good family run restaurant with a menu comprising local dishes of all kinds, the food was well prepared and tasty, the service was excellent and friendly. We were asked if we were enjoying the food by both the waiter and the chef. Wine is served by the glass if required and there are daily specials. Hound welcome

Orvieto proved to be as beautiful as advertised. The food at the Hosteria was excellent. The Bruschetta was amazing and the pasta outstanding. Very good and friendly service.

Orvieto is a beautiful place to visit for many reasons but we made the short trip from Rome for one reason: to have a nice big Sunday lunch at Hosteria Posterula. We've eaten there four times in the last two years and it's consistently excellent, which is a sign of a truly great place to eat. The antipasti we took... More
