This was recommended by many people, listed in a Money Magazine article about Umbria, and deservedly so. We dined for both dinner and lunch. Both times, the service was very friendly and attentive. The food is amazing. We shared a special pasta ravioli dish that was incredible with an edible flower garnish that really added to the ravioli.
My husband had the hamburger. He said it was delicious.
When we returned for lunch my husband had the ravioli again (It was that good!) and I had fresh pasta with asparagus, again, wonderful. Very reasonably priced, fun atmosphere, great service, and excellent food. Their desserts are all made in house and definitely worth saving room for!

My husband and I were taking a day trip from Assisi and Montefalco was highly recommended as a place to visit some wine shops. Since neither one of us knew much about the wines in this area, we wanted to go to the best place around. We had SUCH an amazing tasting and even bought a few bottles to enjoy throughout our trip. The lady that served us, was so gracious and kind. She explained each wine, the varietal and what it goes well with. She served us some of the most delicious appetizers to go along with the wine. We bought some olive oil and balsamic vinegar from the store as well. I would DEFINITELY come if I were ever in this region again.

A lovely restaurant, right in the centre of Montefalco which offers seasonal, local cuisine, and delicious local Sagrantino di Montefalco wine. All four courses were, wine, desert wine, and coffee were delicious. They even let us bring our lovely little french bulldog, Amber, along with us too.

L'Alchimista is one of our favourite places to eat in Umbria, the region famous for its hearty food, which is as simple as it is delicious. With simplicity the trademark of the regional specialities, many of Umbria's restaurants that have attempted to go posh predictably failed to deliver. L'Alchimista is one of the happy few exceptions. Although not posh by the New York or London standards, the level of cooking, as well as that of presentation, is noticeably above the local average, but with prices only marginally above that of a good trattoria, making the value exceptional. L'Alchimista is also an enoteca, which means an excellent selection of local wines. We even tasted the hard-to-find Bea. It is a very expensive wine by local standards, but L'Alchimista has wonderful wine to fit any budget, even their house wine is first class. All in all, a great place for a "special" meal.

Everything is incredible. Attention to details, excellent raw ingredients, good service. Gnocchi with Montefalco Sagrantino are absolutely over the expectations.
