We tried this restaurant our first night in Gubbio. Neither of us had eaten there when we'd been in Gubbio before. It was fall, so we didn't eat in the garden. But the dining room (the one that we were in) was beautiful, with a view of the garden. It was obviously a popular place, considering how many customers were... More

My wife and I enjoyed the ambience, which during fall was more glass green house than garden. I had the tortellini al brodo (A very bolognese style dish) and my wife had the beet risotto - both were excellent. We ended the meal with a Nutella crepe (pics included). Overall, it was a good meal. A bit pricey for lunch... More

We had lunch at Alla Balestra while staying with friends who live near Montone. It was a great choice for a relaxed lunch after sightseeing in the town. We all went for the pasta dishes which were very tasty and washed down with a very enjoyable house white wine. Very professional service and good value. Recommended.

Book to avoid disappointment A group of 12 with 3-5 courses each, tip, cover charge, water... More

Was in Gubbio this summer and had the pleasure of eating at Alla Ballestra with my family. Food and service was impeccable. Beautiful sunset view of the town. My gnocchi were incredible. I can't wait to go back.

We just wanted a quick pasta dish before we headed back to the UK. We stopped here and tried the pasta. It was solid if unspectacular although between us we all agreed it was just what we needed. The pasta portions were also pretty large.

On a beautiful Umbrian summers evening we dined on the terrace at Alla Balestra. We dined gazing at the beautiful view of Gubbio and listening to the church bells. Friendly service and very accommodating. It wad suggested I try the house Sangiovese which I didn't like, the carafe was happily taken away and we werent charged for it. Can I... More

It doesn't look like anything special from the outside, but go inside and you'll find a lovely terrace. There's a massive tree growing out of it, which is quite bizarre really. I had the best pizza I had during this trip here with prosciutto and artichokes. It didn't really seem to have a crust, which is good for me as... More

The restaurant inside is not really typical but the food is great: gnocchi filled up with cheese covered with white truffles was an amazing experience. The second course was good. Service was efficient and kind.
