We had a simple but delicious lunch here. Antipasti and homemade pumpkin soup to start, then both had beef dishes and spinach. Lots of fresh bread, brushetti and good coffee. The menu is small which is always reassuring as suggests it’s mostly fresh. 50 Euro with tip which isn’t bad, service is slow but homemade and freshly cooked is preferable to fast and microwaved.

I had a very good lunch at this restaurant. We arrived To start a delicious antipasto with a selection of local cheeses. I shared with my partner and it was enough!
Then, a super yummy Tagliatelle al sugo di lumaca (pasta with snails sauce). Fantastic! Of course, in Montefalco, we order the local red. It was excellent.
The waiters that served us were very professional but friendly. Also, their suggestion to visit a small Montefalco wine producer was just right!
Thanks for everything and we will definitely come back.

There appeared to be a shortage of staff. There was only one waitress covering all tables and she did not receive much support from the gentleman I believed to be the manager who spent the night behind the bar pouring and drinking shots.

The food when it arrived was nice but the poor waitress was having to do everything. Serve food and get drinks from the barman. It would definitely improve the experience if more staff were employed

After a long delayed trip from England we went 'off piste' from our usual restaurants in the Montefalco area. We had eaten here several years ago with some critical restaurant owners.
Today was just perfect - a warm welcome from a biting wind into a cosy room. Everyone was glowing with their lunch and red wine and we need to get into that space. We were tired.
We ordered wine of the house and were treated with the very well respected Tabarrini Cantina's IGT. What a super match for a platter of local meats and cheese. This was promptly followed by bowls of steaming strangozzi ( the traditional local Umbrian pasta, like coarse textured tagliatelle) with Tartuffo. We were aglow and fully satisfied. What a treat to be well looked after by friendly staff and to eat satisfying food that was so delicious. Beats the wind and mellows with the sun.
