The food and experience is outstanding. A more modern decor, but a restaurant located off the beaten path. It is a nice change from the Etruscan fare. The tuna tartare rocks!

We went to Al Saltapicchio today for lunch - there's a kind of Sunday lunch festival going on in Orvieto for the next several months, called Fornoshop. We had their offering, a carré of pig, and it was stunning! Rich rosemary and lemon flavours enhanced...More

Valentina is a wonderful self-trained chef. She makes you feel very much at home. Every dish is presented with sophistication---nothing pretentious, just a light touch and deep good flavors. I would eat here once a week if I could.

An interesting restaurant off the main thoroughfare in Orvieto. Decor is cheerful and bright (maybe a bit too bright), with lime green walls and quotations from Wilde and Lennon, and a quirky collection of books/magazines on tables and walls. Service was friendly and attentive; the...More
