“Fabulous Pizza and Pasta”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We were looking for a casual place to eat that had great pizza and not a lot of tourists. Alla Balestra fit the bill. The staff was friendly and we had 2 types of pizza (both wonderful) a pasta dish and salad. All was wonderful! Not a tourist in site...seemed like mostly locals. The menu was varied, something for everyone and a large list of wine and beer. When the weather is nice they have a great patio to sit out on. Everyone seems to be having a great time.
When the bill came we were surprised it was so affordable. Quality food, good portions = great value. Def. reccomend.

“If it's filled with locals, go!”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

My Italian husband has a good dining rule, and that is, if a restaurant is filled with locals, that's the place to eat. We arrived at Alla Balestra just before the lunchtime (1 pm) rush and we timed it right. My husband had an excellent pasta with local truffles, and I had a huge antipasto with local specialties. Atmosphere, service and food could not have been better. Most Italian restaurants are kid friendly, but this one especially so. We will be back!

“Super pizza and friendly staff”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

We dined here twice on our recent trip to Italy and both times the food was excellent and good value for the area. We were encouraged to find that this was also the restaurant of choice for the entire local football squad on one of the evenings! The pizzas were especially good!

“A good choice in Gubbio”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Everything we order was good, in particular the gnocchi. The taste I had of the pizza was also absolutely excellent regarding the quality of the crust. Also good choice of wines.
