There is no menu to speak of- the old lady who runs the place rattles off a few dishes, 3 pastas, 3 secondi, and 3 contorni, and that's it. The food is hearty, simple, and good- real Italian (or rather, Roman) homestyle cooking.

The prices are low, and the setting, outside with a view of the tower and the park is great. For a more fancy experience, the son of the lady runs a restaurant upstairs which offers a more sophisticated dining experience.

Friends who lived in Viterbo recommended we went to Alfreda before anywhere else in Tuscania, so that's what we did. I think it was quite the experience for my Irish husband and English friends!
There is a limited selection of traditional, homecooked dishes and no menu to speak of, you just ask the lady. Lady who by the way was looking after all the tables under the pergola on her own!
The food was tasty and just like eating at home.
The bill came at €37 for 4 pastas, 2 66cl bottles of beer and 2 bottles of water. So on top of being an authentic trattoria experience, it was also incredibly good value!
The setting, by Torre di Lavello, was amazing too. I would definitely recommend it.

I've been to Tuscania several times with my photography students from Boston, we are hosted by the Lorenzo de Medici School there, and each time I make sure to find my way to Alfreda's. Last year my family joined us. I prefer inside where the atmosphere is more like a neighborhood Italian social club in the U.S.! In one room there are picnic benches with plastic table cloths! The tourists are outside under the umbrellas. Inside you see and meet locals or regulars who are interested in who you are and how you are enjoying their town and region.

The food is great and hearty. I especially like the pasta with tripe, or gnocchi with butter & cheese, roasted chicken, and all the vegetables offered. The table wine is local and you get a 1/4 carafe with a little glass. In fact the wine was so good and the meal so satisfying that not long after I fell asleep in the near by park overlooking the Marta River Valley. When I woke up everything was fine. Try doing that in a park at home!

I can't wait to return!
