Description: Osteria with gluten-free kitchen (certified AIC), we serve traditional italian food with a selected list of Umbria's Wines. Antica Cantina is a Smart place to stay, at least for us: after all, if you ask the landlord how is the wine, he Will always answers that is good !! We are women, we like to host people, see their smile and feel good. See you there!

This is one of the most charming restaurants we have eaten at in Italy. We arrived in Orvieto planning to eat at Trattoria Grotto, but it was closed on Tuesdays. The wonderful people at our hotel, Hotel Duomo, quickly searched to find someplace else to accommodate us and recommended Antica Cantina. We did not find it in our own gluten-free searches, even though the menu actually is marked with what can be gluten free. We had various forms of pasta, along with appetizers of bruschetta and various meats. The gluten-free bread with olive oil was tasty, too. This is off the main tourist area, so it was mostly locals and us. The staff was dear and sweet and charming. We wish we were staying longer so we could eat here again.

The food and service at this small osteria were exceptional. We both enjoyed the pear capaccio and I had the umbricelli with sausage and truffles. This was one of my favorite meals on our entire trip. Outstanding!

Antica cantina is one of the few places in Orvieto with tables outside in a quite piazza, which is a big plus. Inside has plenty of light and tasteful decor; another rareity in Orvieto. The menu takes traditional receipes and works on them to create master chef level dishes. However, there are no chefs only cooks as Antica Cantina is an all female team. Infact, the local name is Osteria delle donne.

My wife and I each had a wonderful meal in this very cozy resturant. The waitress was very attendant and took especial care to satisfy my wife's gluten issues. And the price was very reasonable. We'd definitely return.

Boutique restaurant, nicely decorated, whose hostess is one of the owners. She is very knowledgable and helpful. Except for beef from Argentina, everything is local and fresh. Entrees of umbrichelli and truffle sauce and spaghetti with red sauce were very good. The "summer snack" appetizer of tomato, mozzarella and basil with shredded lettuce was fabulous with lots of the house olive oil drizzled over it. Tiramisu was also very good, lots of chocolate sauce. The house rosso was very good.
