The 85 year old lady that runs this place is an amazing cook . Service is first class. This town is like stepping back 100 years . This is a slice of Italy few people are able to experience .

Fidalma is a welcoming family run restaurant offering hearty regional food. We went with the suggestions made by our waitress and weren't disappointed. The ' Aquacotta' - a thick soup made from local vegetables - was simple and tasty as was the local pasta (Picci) with tomato and garlic. The wild boar and rabbit dishes were also done well. The...

A lovely restaurant in the walking area of Sorano. Mainly traditional Italian food on the menu. We had the pasta carbonara with a good glass of wine! Defintively worth visiting!

Always love to find a successful woman making it in a chauvinistic male society. The service and attention to detail were as good as the food. A kiss from Fidalma closed the meal. Thanks Patricia!

Very warm welcome when we arrived. Food excellent, service excellent, good surroundings. Had Caprese Salad followed by typical local dish of pici pasta with cheese and pepper, absolutely lovely. Finished off with Crema Catalonia flambé, simply gorgeous. We will definitely return this week.

We started by having our starter and drinks outside in the dying sunlight, as the townspeople went about their evening business, but then we moved indoors as it became quite nippy. the staff were incredibly welcoming. We chose local specialities including lemon cream pasta (good but I found it a bit sweet), fresh pici pasta with garlic and tomato sauce... More
