We booked a large table on a rainy Sunday in September and had a very pleasant meal. The pasta dishes were superb, but overall everyone really enjoyed all elements of the meal; service was friendly and very good. Would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Starters were amazing, the mains were a little salty for our taste but still delicious. Well worth a visit. Beef tartare unbelievable.

Piazza dei Popolo is a large square which during our stay was one of the quieter areas of the town. We had a per-dinner drink here. An excellent Aperol spritz accompanied by some nibbles. Friendly service and a lovely square to sit and relax. Recommend.

Our last day in Italy we decided to explore Orvieto, which did not disappoint. At the recommendation of a local business owner, we headed to Capitano del Popolo. From the service, to the Chef coming out to greet us after our meal, everything was excellent.

Looks like a coffee bar in the front, dining room in the back. A very talented chef. Slight creative twists on some traditional presentations but they only add to the enjoyment. Go!!!
