We visited yesterday and spent a lovely evening at this friendly restaurant in Orvieto. Carpaccio was delicious, the pasta with truffle sauce, superb. Followed by a superb wild boar with blueberries and, for me, the saddle of pork with smoked cheese and tomatoes. Too stuffed for dessert so you must be guided by others on that score.
A lovely restaurant well worth a visit!

Set in a quaint street in Orvieto, we sat outside on the terrace and enjoyed a wonderful long lunch with friends. Although it was a very hot day and we were intending to eat a fairly modest lunch, we could not resist trying many of the dishes on the menu and ended up tasting each other's choices. My particular favourites were the ricotta flan which was light and delicious, as was the mezzaluna pasta, these both a perfect prelude to the more robust flavours of the cinghiale and agnello. The dessert of light flakey, pastry, creamy custard and raspberries was a fitting end to this memorable meal. A wonderful experience,great food and welcoming, friendly atmosphere.

We have just returned home after the best lunch we have had this year.
From the antipasto a delicious ricotta flan, onto the home made pasta, mezze lune with pea purée or the tagliatelle with chocolate and a sauce invented by Giovanni, onto the the main course cinghiale or agnello so mouthwatering.We had to complete the meal with exquisite dolci all home made.For the wine Giovanni's recommendations were great.
If you are in Orvieto you must go to eat here. We will certainly be going back.

We ate dinner here a few nights ago. Both my spouse and I had beef filets which were mouth-watering and fork tender. I ordered a layered dessert dish of puff pastry over cream and cherries. Delicious.
We returned the next night with 4 friends. One has a food allergy and the waiter and chef worked with her to modify a dish so that she could eat worry free. This time I had an antipasti of ricotta flan and squash blossoms that was excellent. All 6 of us had cleaned our plates during the main course. The wait staff speaks good English. Don't pass on this culinary gem.
