Le Grotte del Funaro

Le Grotte del Funaro

Lunch in an Etruscan cave or “grotto”

While visiting the legendary city of Orvieto, we delve into the Orvieto Underground, an ancient Etruscan city carved by hand tools over centuries. After that exploration, we will continue the underground theme with lunch at Le Grotte del Funaro, located in the medieval quarter in Piazza San Giovanni.

Situated on the side of a cliff, Le Grotte del Funaro restaurant is far from being a hole in the wall. It is a special place, entirely underground in the Etruscan caves. Originally these caves were used as a rope-making workshop. In the late 1970s, Sandra and Alfredo Branca turned them into a delightful restaurant, which they still run with their son Andrea.

This restaurant offers two amazing dining experiences, inside in the cavern or outside with spectacular views.
