Never eat so bad. Service was terrible....in the meaning you get no service. We needed to ask for the menu,because they were exposing it just talking...but we wanted to see prices. They showed the menu at the end after 15 min: almost 80% of the meals was not available. Atmosphere? No one. Pasta? Overcooked. Yes prices are low...but you get... More

Lovely and welcoming owners, and the food was good. Could however benefit from not having the tv on, but that might just be our preferance.

We had the most wonderful lunch here. The fish dishes were excellent and the wine suggested with our meal was perfect. Our waiter made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant; very polite, charming and his English is good. The decor was simple without being austere. The washrooms are very clean.

Don't judge it by it's deceptive décor (a touch t & g 60's), your going there to have a delicious meal served with house wine in a friendly way. Starters a delight, my husband had a wonderful venison stew and I roasted chicken, duck and rabbit, all well cooked and full of flavour. A great find in a lovely town,... More

If Il Grottino is listed in Trip Advisor as the number 2 ranking restaurant in Citta de Castello, then I'd hate to think what awaits any diner at numbers 3, 4, 5, 6... We arrived at 8.45pm to a nearly empty restaurant. It took 10 minutes for the waitress to bring us a menu and clean our table by flicking... More

We went there, just passing it on our tour through the city. It looks cosy in the corner of via Francesco. Very friendly personnel, family run type of place and we enjoyed the food and had great conversation with other guests. It's certainly worthwhile a visit.

If you are looking for a friendly restaurant this is the place. The man who seats and serves is as nice as can be. That is the only thing good I can say about this place. Not only is the service infamously slow, but the food, if you know good Italian home cooking, is just awful. I have been there... More

Great food, good service, a very nice family run restaurant, with all generations taking a role. The wild boar is a must have. Very well priced, nice selection of local wines.
