Great food at reasonable prices, a wide selection of regional dishes (truffles) and wine (try one of the excellent rosso di Montefalco). A lot of residents from Gubbio, young and old, present, everybody contributed to a create a warm atmosphere.

Me and my mother highly appreciated alla balestra, its impeccable service and savory dishes- trying a delicious plate of antipasti, croquettes, tagliatelle al ragu and tagliatta. It is the restaurant of Gubbio that we appreciate the most and have a very fond memory of it

Wonderful food, patio dining with a broad menu. Great service dining with locals and tourists....no difference in attention. Very good wine list from all over Tuscany and Umbria, from expensive to local bargains.
