Food was good, service was very friendly. There are a few tables outside and it's just a lovely place to sit under the arch. We really enjoyed our lunch here.

In truth we had been intending eating elsewhere but it was closed, fate and all that! We were made most welcome here, and sat inside as all the outer tables under the arches were filled. Cold cuts, delicious bread, and various tapa style treats were more than sufficient for a light lunch. Good local wines and coffees, and chocolate torte... More

Went with my family to celebrate 2 birthdays and had a blissful time. They serve regional dishes and everything we tried (Pasta con i peperoni, Acquacotta, Salsiccia, Risotto alle erbe selvatiche) was fabulous and portions very generous. The local wine very strong, and service was friendly and efficient. Prices more than reasonable for the quality. A truly beautiful experience!

Pasta and meat is really good but I would suggest avoiding the tripe - it's a local dish but not nice! First and only time of eating tripe - never again. In the summer it's a lovely setting to sit outside. Service is good and friendly. I would go back but not order tripe!

The only good thing about it - quite friendly stuff. They said sorry few times while we were waiting for the food which was awfully long. Literally, it was almost an hour. After all we've got too small rabbits (quite tasty, but nothing special), one pasta with tomatoes and the "duck" (which supposed to be a special of this place).... More

I was looking for a small place for pranzo before I had to catch the train back to Rome. It is located at the end of a small street. I was surprised by the friendliness of the servers and the quality of the food. I had the special for first course. It was a delicious homemade eggless pasta served with... More

It was a a pleasant surprise to eat at the trattoria L'Archetto. Small but cosy when the weather is nice you can eat outdoors under an arch, hence the name archetto. The food is hearty but well cooked, the only downside is ther are not many vegetarian options, but they can always make a decent tomato sauce pasta dish and... More

The trattoria is a little bit hidden but once you seat you are in the right place! The service is good and the food simply but typical and tasty. The price is good surprise too. If you like home-brewed beer try tho local one that they serve

Atmosphere is great - under a gorgeous little arch (/archetto), rustic style. The service was alright and the food was good. Starters nothing special (dry bread), but the wild boar pasta and roast lamb were tasty. Overall a nice experience.

This place has specials for each night. 3 or 4 choices of each course and great bread which is free. The house wine is great and everything we ordered was delicious! They are also very friendly and work hard to make you happy! LOVED iT!
