Literally the best meat ive eaten in a restaurant! The lamb shank was to die for! The pasta was also very good. The service?! IMPECCABLE! I was really impressed by the girl who served us, very professional and knowledgable! We also had a nice chat with the owner (i guess). One regret is that we had only 1 night otherwise we would have visited again. Top!!!

We were in Orvieto for four nights and ate at several different restaurants, but this one truly stands out. It is kind of hidden down an alley and the food was amazing! We tried different dishes every night and they just seemed to get better and better. They had a pappardelle al ragu di Cinghiale, Beef with Truffle, Umbrichelli cacio e pepe, pasta dell'orso, ravioli and hare that were all absolutely amazing. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. Our waitress was very attentive, friendly and spoke English.

This small trattoria down a narrow medieval street off the Piazza della Repubblica, some distance from the restaurant-filled Orvieto duomo, is a real find, though we were taken there by an American expatriate who lives in the city. The food is outstanding, the prices very reasonable, the service personable and attentive, the local wine list intriguing. In short, this is a great place for visitors to appreciate local food made well and served well. We suggest the "chef's choice" of four plates, each of which on the night we ate there was wonderful. If you order a la carte, make sure you try anything with wild boar ("cinghiale"), the rabbit, and any pasta primi dish. Desserts are fine but you will have to make room for it.
