Le Grotte del Funaro Review

Dine inside tufa caves under central Orvieto, where the two windows afford splendid views of the hilly countryside. The traditional Umbrian food is reliably good, with simple grilled meats and vegetables and pizzas. Oddly, though, the food is outclassed by an extensive wine list, with top local and Italian labels and quite a few rare vintages.

    What a find

    We stumbled upon this place in the old part of town, and it was wonderful. The seemingly endless staircase down into this restaurant in a cave like setting below a church led into a lovely, cozy and romantic space. My husband loved his beef, but the suckling pig I had was by far the best pork I have ever eaten.
