It is very hard to be a good restaurant in Umbria and Tuscany, given such a high competition. La Palomba does it, and then some! This restaurant specializes in truffle dishes. They will shave truffles in front of you, be it bruschetta con tartufi or...More

We have frequented this lovely place everytime we stay in Tuscany. In fact, we drive from Montepulciano to Orvieto just for La Palomba. It is a bit hard to find on your first trip, but love that it is off the beaten path from all...More

The start of our lunch was a bit ordinary as it took a very long time before we could order anything as staff were busy with each other. However, once we ordered things improved dramatically and staff remained attentive and friendly throughout service. We started...More

We loved this restaurant 5 years ago, and returned in 2018 for another delightful meal. Three couples shared three appetizers and each person had a main course. All were delightful and delicious. It is such a joy to find a consistently good restaurant!

My lunch consisted of two different pastas. One with tartuffo and the other a red sauce. Both were excellent. Then followed by chingiale (wild boar) which was also excellent. All fresh ingredients. Great service. Lovely restaurant. Complimenti Palomba.

Made a stop in Orvieto for a late lunch four years ago (2014), but I still remeber the excellent pasta with truffels.

I’m not sure about all the parking. We always drive up to the town, following the blue and white (P) parking signs. Most people don’t realize you can drive up and actually park. Sometimes there are meters, but there are... More
