My husband and I were taking a day trip from Assisi and Montefalco was highly recommended as a place to visit some wine shops. Since neither one of us knew much about the wines in this area, we wanted to go to the best place around. We had SUCH an amazing tasting and even bought a few bottles to enjoy... More

A lovely restaurant, right in the centre of Montefalco which offers seasonal, local cuisine, and delicious local Sagrantino di Montefalco wine. All four courses were, wine, desert wine, and coffee were delicious. They even let us bring our lovely little french bulldog, Amber, along with us too.

L'Alchimista is one of our favourite places to eat in Umbria, the region famous for its hearty food, which is as simple as it is delicious. With simplicity the trademark of the regional specialities, many of Umbria's restaurants that have attempted to go posh predictably failed to deliver. L'Alchimista is one of the happy few exceptions. Although not posh by... More

Everything is incredible. Attention to details, excellent raw ingredients, good service. Gnocchi with Montefalco Sagrantino are absolutely over the expectations.

We loved this restaurant. Superb food and such a friendly service. Even the chef came up to say hello! We had pigeon for the main course which was superb - the breast melted in the mouth and the leg had a spectacular stuffing. Dessert was a pear and ice cream dish which was just divine. Best food of the holiday... More

Our friends who live in Montefalco eat here often. It's not surprising to see why. Each dish is expertly prepared and presented. Everything we ordered was incredible. My Chef friend has celiac disease and said the gluten free bread and pasta they prepared for him was the best he ever ate. Can't say enough about the food and price.

Recommended to us by lovely folks in Pettino, we arrived in Montefalco around noon. Tables were already set invitingly outside on the piazza so we ducked our heads in & were greeted by a very pleasant woman who took our espresso order. We added to that a wonderful soup & inventive crostini plate. All was fresh, delicious & memorable. The... More

Chose this restaurant as high scorer on TA as we were looking for a good value simple lunch in Montefalco and it certainly lived up to it's rating from our predecessors. We just went for a 1 course pasta meal and our various choices were both seasonal and had a bit of creativity. The venue is also an enoteca and... More
