I have eaten here twice over the last few years and I highly recommend it. The staff are very friendly, the menu is broad without being overwhelming, the wines great (how could they not be?). The asparagus starter is delicious, and the pastas heavenly. It's right next to the Duomo, so there's no reason not to try it.

The restaurant is located on a caner of the main square. It has a terrace and overlooks both the Duomo and the valley. The food is acceptable and covers the usual type fare found in Umbrian restaurants. Various meat antipastos; various pastas well enough prepared. A bit expensive. Pasta for two, side of spinach, water, half a bottle of wine... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Vinosus. I can honestly say that my pasta dish was the best I have ever tasted - it was exquisite and so very light. I would definitely return for the pasta alone, but the whole meal was fantastic. There's a huge choice of seasonal dishes, which are all beautifully presented. The restaurant also has... More

We had worked up an appetite after touring the Orvieto underground and Duomo and Trattoria Vinosus was a walk-in selection, which turned out to be a pleasant meal. We enjoyed the bread soup, the spinach w/ garlic (and a touch of spicy chili) and the fresh pasta with broad beans, squash blossoms, fennel and cheese. A bottle of Orvieto Classico... More

Lunch at Vinosus is always a real treat. The menu chances with the season, and there are always a range of extras to try. On Friday there was a board of seven freshly sourced goats cheeses. The carchofi and pancetta sauce with the pasta was beautifully balanced and cod dish delecate, although a very ample portion. The mother( chef) and... More

It was too cold to eat outside but the inside was beautiful with spectacular artwork. We were there for lunch. We split a spinach with garlic and chilies. I had the ribolita soup which was excellent and my husband had pasta with beans, squash blossoms, fennel and cheese. We had an excellent bottle of Orvieto Classico. It was delicious.

Came here at the suggestion of two local friends. Given its location, I was afraid to find a tourist restaurant, but nothing could have been farther from the truth. It is a real local treasure.

Outstanding dinner, right to side of Duomo. We had a great pasta with tomato & sweet red pepper, and a "maialino" - grilled baby pork chops. Service was on top of game, definitely recommend.
