The local specialty dishes were unique and well prepared. We arrived after 21:30 and the restaurant was still buzzing. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. We will certainly dine here again on our next trip to Viterbo.

Everything about this restaurant is great. The ambiance is warm and welcoming but the food is the star of the show. The pastas are fresh and topped with flavorful sauces that complement rather than mask the pasta. And the desserts....I’m still thinking about the chestnuts...More

I live and work in Viterbo and use this restaurant to entertain business partners. The food is excellent, service is excellent; in fact everything is excellent. I could wax lyrical about the menu but you really must try it yourself. It deserves 5 stars

Our first restaurant in Viterbo was a pleasant surprise. The cuisine at Vecchio Orologio is based on Viterbo traditions, as is appropriate for a Slow Food restaurant, but modern and stylish in its approach. Our lombrichelli with cream of peas and a ragu of susianella...More

Al centro di Viterbo la nostra Osteria propone una cucina semplice, del territorio e genuina. La cucina viterbese si caratterizza per paste fresche come i lombrichelli, le fettuccine e i ripieni conditi con i prodotti di stagione. I secondi di carne allevata nei nostri allevamenti della tuscia ricalcano la tradizione contadina e la semplicita della cultura enogastonomica laziale. Ottima la pizza lievitata e maturata nelle 24 ore. Ricca la carta dei vini e delle birre che sta virando verso una proposta sempre piu regionale. Pane, paste e dolci fatti in casa
