“Just for the views it's worth the ride”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Since we were not very hungry, we only had two starters. The tagliatelle with truffles and the Lasagna alla Norcia. Particularly the second was excellent. The tagliatelle, howeverm didn't taste that much of truffle (although they were also very good, and abundant unlike the lasagna portion that was a bit too small). The best for sure was the restaurant itself. Some of the most amazing views I've seen from a restaurant, with the table overlooking directly to the planes and Norcia at the bottom. Also the waiter was very nice and friendly. Just to be aware that the restaurant is located quite far out of Norcia so you'll need your own transport and about 15 minutes to get there. They also offer accommodation, which seemed really nice as well.

“Do not miss this culinary delight of an experience!”
Reviewed 12 October 2012 via mobile

What an incredible experience dining at this wonderfully atmospheric and authentic restaurant set up in the hilltop outside Norcia. Very simple having the menu read to you by the waiter with 3 choices of pasta and main and red or white wine (obviously brewed locally) not to mention the home brewed Liquers after dinner! Truly delicious and a wonderfully friendly welcome... Our most memorable meal in Italy to date! Don't let this gem pass you by :)

“Romantic”
Reviewed 1 September 2012 via mobile

We were kind of unsure whether to dine al fresco, overlooking the Umbrian countryside, or whether to enjoy the rustic charm of the dining room. In the end we ate inside with a typical starter of local cheeses and spelt salad and a main course of hand made pasta. A melody of simple pleasures and real uncomplicated flavours. 
Friendly and attentive service with a hint of pride. 
Really lovely.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

We read about this restaurant three years ago and ate here following a visit to Norcia. We returned two years ago with friends and have just been again. Beautiful surroundings. Lovely looking restaurant and we were fortunate enough to eat on the terrace with the stunning views. Food is simple and absolutely delicious. We would recommend Il Casale Degli Amici to everyone.

“As invited to an Italian family”
Reviewed 20 May 2012 via mobile

One of our best Italian experiences. Genuin Umbrian food, extremely good service and an atmosphere as if invited to a friends home. We even got a ride home to our hotel in Norcia. Don't miss it of you are in the vicinity.
