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.

Just got back to our rented villa from a wonderful dinner at il Giglio d'Oro. We arrived, all 8 of us, much later than our booking, but they were uncompromisingly friendly and accommodating. The service was attentive and extremely helpful. While the menu was not complex, the kind waiter ensured we all knew what we were ordering. I had the... More

Best by far for a decent meal. Not one panini advertised! Overlooks the pyjama church which is simply unique and stunning. I choose wild stuffed rabbit to start followed by pork with cannoli beans which was fab. Lashings of free fresh bred so try not to over indulge before your meal. A great choice to stop and eat if driving... More

L‘ingrediente principale della nostra cucina è l’amore. Per i prodotti di qualità legati al territorio - gli oli umbri e toscani, le carni chianine, i tartufi, i formaggi - e per le alchimie di sapori nuovi e raffinati alla base del viaggio gastronomico che vi proponiamo. Hanno ispirazioni orientali, ma ben innestate su radici toscane, i piatti a base di pesce. Mentre i dessert spaziano dai classici della pasticceria, a originali combinazioni di golosità____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.
