As we walked by this charming restaurant we spotted the special Trip Advisor sticker with a very high designation on the door so we made it a point to find it again after our sightseeing in Orvieto. Although it was not such an easy feat given the labyrinth of streets, it was well worth the effort. We were warmly greeted and attended to by Adler who introduced us to her grandson and by the end of our meal made us feel like we had truly experienced part of the local scene. We had one of the specials of the day, fresh pasta carbonara with black truffles, which was so unbelievably good we stopped short of licking the plates. Appetizer, dessert and wine were also very good. High marks on value too! I would definitely recommend and return. Thanks Trip Advisor for this great recommendation!

I am afraid that we will see this kind of restaurants slowly disappear. The food is very good, you can taste the time, effort and passion. Not commercial, the "nonna's" just want to share their food. Be kind and remember this endangered species.

We enjoyed an early meal after a long day's travel, and even though we were the only table in the place (we arrived a little earlier than our 7:30 intention) this is no negative reflection on the food. The menu doesn't offer a lot of choice, but ample for most. We sampled 2 pasta dishes (one with truffle, one with porcini) and 2 meat/chicken dishes (Manzo with pear - a Umbrian 16th c. dish, and polo al limone), and all were prepared super fast and were very tasty. The quality is there and the preparation well done. It won't knock your socks off, but it won't disappoint either. For dessert we shared a gelato based Baci which was very good. We talked to the owner about it and she mentioned that they also make a hand made gelato frutti di bosco (wild berries) which she brought over for us to taste as well, which was a very nice gesture not to mention an amazing treat! To recap, this place offers good quality and tasty food. great service and good prices. You can't go wrong here.

We ate at this restaurant today and had an excellent experience. The owner spent a lot of time explaining the different choices and making suggestions. There were 6 of us and we were all pleased with our food. The truffle pasta was delicious. The home made cheeses were tasty, and the unique ravioli made with cacao was a big hit. I highly recommend the restaurant.
