All the favorite dishes from the umbra cuisine. Pasta fatta in casa..lentils..grilled meats..nothing complicated but when the ingredients are this could the cooking is best when it is simple.

On our first (and hopefully not last) visit to Norcia, we chose this restaurant for lunch, based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. And it was spot on. The dining room was open and bright, a menu in English was available and the house wine was great!! My husband and I shared an antipasti of local meats and cheeses.I had... More

We ate here in September and both our dishes were great. We had a meat dish and pasta dish with a side of caramelized onions and lentil soup. The onions were my favorite just awesome cipolini's. Would recommend.

We visited this restaurant 25 years ago and it was fantastic but a recent visit was not so good. Pleasant people but average food.

Our meal here was simply divine. We took the recommendation from our travel guide and ate here for lunch. The food was so delicious that it's the meal we remember most from our long stay in Italy. The pork, the pasta dishes with truffles....so tasty and fresh. Our waiter was friendly and funny. We had such a good time here.... More

The décor is simple, clean and comfortable. The owner is the host and the waiter and pride with the long history this establishment has. The merit certificates and other tokens hanging on the walls prove it. Also the food. Everything is flavored with the Tartufo. We had Gnocchi, Filetto di manzo alla Francese o alla griglia, and more. It was... More

We were a group of 4 friends, 2 couples, who love Italia with a passion. Our dining pals have returned to Umbria 6 straight years running--I rest my case. By happy coincidence we bumped into each other as we approached the restaurant to arrive in time for our dinner reservation. All of us had high hopes for a special meal.... More

Trattoria food, very well prepared and seasoned, strangozzi (italian hand made spaghetti) with truffle and all sort of pasta dishes with truffle as well as main course with black truffle depending on the season. The place is very essential, however taste the Antipasto dal Francese or the Truffle antipasto and you will have an introduction to the specialty without needing... More

Round the back of one of the churches this is a very friendly, unpretentious trattoria that serves excellent food at good prices. The pasta, gnocchi and meat dishes were all excellent. The staff are friendly and happy to let you take your time. The portions are very good sized and at the end they put a bottle of Limoncello on... More
