This is a lovely restaurant. The food and wine were delicious, the staff friendly and attentive but also discreet. There was a lovely gentle relaxed ambience. We had a wonderful evening.

We had a wonderful evening. The owner greeted us warmly when we arrived and we were shown to a comfortable table in an intimate setting. We were treated to a glass of Girasoli’s own sparkling wine to enjoy with the amuse bouche of shaved truffles on toast. The menu is composed of mostly local produce. Our meals were perfectly prepared and the homemade pasta with porcini was divine. We enjoyed an excellent red from their vineyard that paired nicely with the beef entrees. We will definitely go back. We have been a number of times over the years and have never been disappointed.

We were disappointed on our most recent visit. The first course of stuffed courgette flowers was not very tasty because it needed salt and there was no salt on the table. The pork ribs were tender but again not particularly tasty. The lamb was good but came from New Zealand. We had eaten beef the previous evening otherwise we would have chosen that. The vegetables were uninspired and rather sparse for four of us. It is usually better than this so maybe it was just an off night.

We ate here on the first night of our stay in Umbria and I don’t think we could have chosen anywhere better. The staff were welcoming, greeting us with a glass of Prosecco and a selection of home made breads and olive oil. The

Always the highlight of our holiday in Umbria. They produce their own oil and wine and food is locally produced. Delighted to see some new dishes and some interesting pasta combinations. The service as always is excellent and remains value for money.

The restaurant is beautiful. Each room only has a few tables and so there is lots of space. We had a very large table and it was one a private room. The food is very good, especially if you like red meat. There weren’t many other choices and nothing for vegans. The wine was amazing and very inexpensive for the quality.

Thanks for visiting us and thanks for reviewing us. And again thank you for the opportunity to remark that our Restaurant is specialized on serving top quality meat (pork, lamb and beef) but we have also several good options for vegetarians (a lot of truffle, premium cheeses, hand made pastas, etc.) altough we are defnitly NOT prepared for serving VEGAN meals. We can always prepare a very simple pasta with tomato or a vegetables plate and VEGAN are anyway welcome but keep in mind that we are capable of preparing very very simple vegan dishes, with smal options and not a fine dining meal.

Dinner with 7 friends last night at this fabulous restaurant. There wasn't a missed note from the beginning to the end of the meal. Gracious and helpful service and perfectly cooked food in a lovely setting. Don't get me started on the wine. Oh my!

Wow! We had a recommendation to eat here by a friend in the US. What a wonderful evening! The atmosphere and view was amazing. The staff was so accommodating, especially Francesco. He was wonderful. They pampered us all night. The best part of the meal was the truffle egg souffle with cheese sauce. I tasted my sister's and would have made a meal of that delectable dish. My husband and I got the truffle ravioli. He ate 1/2 and hates mushrooms. (That's saying something) It was fabulous. I ordered the lamb along with 3 others at our table. Cooked medium rare to perfection. My husband and his sister had the ribs. They were falling off the bone. Heard the wine was very good. Our dessert was the Amalfi lemon curd. It was in the shape of a lemon and yummy. Not too sweet and beautiful to look at. A perfect evening.

We had great memories of this restaurant from 4 years ago but were sadly disappointed this time.The main problem was blaring 50 year old American music. I asked a waitress why not Italian music ( or silence!) and she said the proprietor liked jazz....though the noise was crooning, on an endless loop. Yes, the food was good and the service fair but we shall certainly not be rebooking for Sunday lunch as we had planned.

First of all, thanks for visiting us. Classic Jazz music is a very good ambience music, and we never play music at high volume. That's true: our jazz music is softly playing along the entire evening. But if someone asks for lower volume or for a more quite corner, we take care of our guests requests. So I am just a bit surprised you judged all our work, about food, service and abience in general, exclusively for the kind of music played on backgraund. At the end, restaurant is mainly food, service and ambience, not a concert... But thanks for sharing your opinion with us, we always accuarately consider the opinions of our dear Guests.

Delicious food and great location. Very nice staff. Portions are not very big so you do need to take two dishes - starter and main course. Overall i would definitely go back.

Great service, bringing glass of sparkling wine and Amuse-Bouche to table as soon as we arrived, and continued attentively throughout the meal. Really good food, well accompanied by wine from the property.

A wonderful dining experience. The attention to detail is exceptional, from the glass of prosecco on arrival to the amuse bouche and the little sweets before the dolce. A must for anyone visiting the region.
