We arrived at around 8.30pm to an enchanting candle lit garden. The menu was elegant and hand written showing a range of traditional dishes. The waiters were helpful in translating for us as our italian is non existent and also recommended a lovely red wine...More

I visited this restaurant at lunchtime. Being solo, I was proposed a table outside, although the garden was not prepared for guests; it was obvious a table for two in the restaurant wouldn't be sacrificed. I was also given a used tablecloth. I didn't get...More

Sorry that you believe we have not been welcomed with all our attention. It was not like that, believe it. We thought we would prefer the garden and maybe the blanket (not the tablecloth) could have been inadvertently spotted ... However we are happy that...More

incredible food and service in a simplistic atmosphere. Home cuisine that you cannot taste anywhere else. Let them guide you through the menu, and take your time. Do not worry, they are patient. Go Go Go.

Il Richiastro is a delicious homey restaurant with wonderful modern art pieces as decor and both comforting and creative menu items. We started off with the restaurant's famous "bruschetta" - slices of warm bread with a series of different sauces. Then we had a sampling...More

This was the perfect place for a quiet Sunday Lunch with friends in the centre of Viterbo. I particularly loved the rustic chic décor and the soft lightning, creating a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, perfect to enjoy a good meal. The only disappointing part was...More

This restaurant is difficult to find but well worth seeking out. It is slow-food in its best sense. It is family run. We were warmly greeted by father and son. Lovely cracking fire in a large open fire place. Small arched room seats about 20....More

The food is as good as the ambient and as nice ad the owners! I totally suggest to come and eat here, where you can satisfy your tongue with an explosion of local ancient tastes!

These folks exemplify the SlowFood ethos. Hint-order wine from the list, the vino della casa doesn't do justice to the food.
