Ate with 5 friends on a bicycling trip across Italy. The pasta pomodoro was the best I have had in my life. Nice wine selections, too. Friends had the ravioli and absolutely loved it, then ordered the pasta pomodoro after hearing my raving about it. This was during the same meal. The view was so gorgeous, but the inside of the restaurant is also beautiful. I hope to return someday.

Was directed by a shop owner to this wonderful restaurant for lunch. Quite a few tables outside with magnificent view over Umbria including Assisi and the Sybilline mountains in the distance. The staff were great. Menu is limited but our choices were good. Wine was from the local region of Montefalco both red and white were great.
Definitely recommend.

This restaurant does not trade on its great location but instead marries a wonderful view across Valle Umbria with excellent food and service. We have eaten here four times and enjoyed ourselves on each occasion. The rabbit secondi was fabulous, only surpassed by the melanzane antipasti. Try them!

It seemed a shame to eat indoors on a sunny day so we followed the signs to the Porta Venere and were given a table on the terrace under one of the umbrellas. The menu looked not very different from other restaurants in the area but actually my 'cabbage soup' was much better and more attractive than it sounded, while the 'cauliflower cake' was a triumph. We both had the rabbit stuffed with olives and pancetta, which was a little salty for our taste and rather unevenly cooked - but then rabbit is difficult to get right, as we know from trying it at home.
A splendid view across the plain, and a good glass of Rosso di Montefalco completed a very pleasant meal.
