The food and experience is outstanding. A more modern decor, but a restaurant located off the beaten path. It is a nice change from the Etruscan fare. The tuna tartare rocks!

We went to Al Saltapicchio today for lunch - there's a kind of Sunday lunch festival going on in Orvieto for the next several months, called Fornoshop. We had their offering, a carré of pig, and it was stunning! Rich rosemary and lemon flavours enhanced the joint of pork and were beautifully complemented in the potatoes and onion that accompanied...

Delicious freshly-prepared lunch. They were excellent regarding my daughter's food allergy. Food was superb. Assorted bruschetta, cheese sampler, duck ragu: all wonderful. No room for pudding! House red was Very reasonable price. Lovely service.

I wasn't sure that this restaurant was still open because something I had read implied that the chef had left to start her own restaurant (Capitano Popolo). We were actually in an out-of-the-way part of Orvieto, casting around for a place to eat, when we saw that Al Saltapicchio was indeed open. Lucky for us! This was the best meal... More

We had spent three nights in Orvieto this past March and had this restaurant recommended to us by a local, and were not disappointed. A great start to the meal was a salmon carpaccio with mozzarella and pineapple. Salad was fresh and the pasta very good. Location was not in the heart of the tourist area, but fairly close to...

We really wanted to try this restaurant based on the reviews. We had some difficulty finding cuisine in Orvieto that wasn't rustic (ie. Playing it safe for tourists). Saltapicchio did not disappoint. We were really pleased with our main dishes but we felt the standout dish was the appetizer - deep fried zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella and anchovies. Very... More

The young chef is a wonderful host and the food is excellent. Slightly out of the way, a 10 min walk from the main street in Orvieto, this is well worth a visit. There were more locals than tourists. The waitress didn't speak English, so the Chef/Owner took our order and personally delivered our entrees. The tastes are great and... More

The trouble with Italian food is that it is…too Italian. Unknowing tourists come to Italy looking for the Italian food they recognize from home but "savvy" travelers look for authentic regional food. Both sets of tourists catch restaurants in similar traps. Restaurants offer "menu turistiche" which appeal to the first type of tourists while other restaurants advertise “tipica” foods. The...

Valentina is a wonderful self-trained chef. She makes you feel very much at home. Every dish is presented with sophistication---nothing pretentious, just a light touch and deep good flavors. I would eat here once a week if I could.

An interesting restaurant off the main thoroughfare in Orvieto. Decor is cheerful and bright (maybe a bit too bright), with lime green walls and quotations from Wilde and Lennon, and a quirky collection of books/magazines on tables and walls. Service was friendly and attentive; the menu was available in English and our waitress gave us good advice about dishes and... More
