We didn't expect much as we knew it's usually better to avoid restaurants on touristic squares, but this restaurant was definitely an exception: truly amazing. Excellent quality for more than reasonable prices and great service. If i ever go back to Orvieto, i know where i'll be having diner.

This restaurant is situated right on the Duomo square. Light modern decor and if you're lucky you get a seat on the upholstered bench. The service is excellent and friendly. I had the pate for starters and my son had the stuffed rabbit. We then had pork filet and breaded lamb chops. Not knowing the wine selection we asked for... More

Not a great experience here. The food was good enough when it arrived but it came out in the wrong order and we were more or less ignored. It was probably just a bad night.

Fabulous location ( just in front of the majestic Duomo ) The decor inside is a bit "cold" but adequate . Service is very attentive and the kitchen very organized (you don't have to wait ages for your order and they come all together ! ) The menu uses very traditional Umbrian ingredients of good quality and are prepared with...

Set just north of the historic duomo, this clean, cool and fresh restaurant is quite a nice surprise. The cacio di pepe (a tradional dish) was perfection and rich in flavor. The grilled eggplant with shavings of zucchini was delicately prepared and full of flavor. The pork medallions wrapped in pancetta were delicious. The service was great and they were... More

A delightful small restaurant looking out at the Duomo. Seating outside but chased inside due to a shower. Lovely staff, tasty food, good choices and certainly value for money. We shall hope to visit again when in Orvieto.

A great location right by the duomo. Do try the local delicacy of pigeon. Very delicious if a little on the pricey side. Service was excellent

Nothing but good to say about this restaurant. The service was impeccable, location opposite the Duomo beautiful and peaceful. And the food was unforgettable. The pasta with garlic, olive oil and truffles was simple but exquisite - it tasted like a walk in an Autumn forest. So evocative. Dessert was simple but equally delicious. A meal to remember for a...

Provided you don't have a need to leave the upper part of Orvieto ahead of the insane 8:30pm closure of the funicular, then you could do much worse than have dinner at il Giglio d'Oro. It has a great menu and a good wine list (covering local wines to a good extent), couple with really sharp service. From the complementary... More

Sitting overlooking the cathedral sets the tone of this restaurant. Good food and service and good wine list. Not cheap, but you pay for the view! Beware of the cover charge.

Description
The principal ingredient of our kitchen is love. Love for the high-quality products of the territory – Umbrian and Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil, chianina beef, truffles, cheeses – and for the magical blends of new and subtle flavors, the underlying premise of the gastronomic journey we propose. Dishes based on fish betray oriental inspiration, grafted onto Tuscan roots. Desserts range from the classics of the pastry chef to original mouth-watering delicacies.
