Dinner in Bevagna

Our first night's "official" dinner is on Wednesday, but Tuesday night, we decided to try out one of the restaurants where our group will be dining with Jan and Les. We arrived at Enoteca Piazza Onofri a little after 8:30, and were delighted with the charming restaurant. We were brought cheesy bread and then we began with two shared orders of gnocchette with coniglio, zucchini blossoms and sprinkled cheese and CHOCOLATE! Who knew? It was light as air, and delicious!

Jan had a big bowl of pumpkin soup for her entree, but the rest of us were quite hungry. I had probably the best pork I have ever tasted, "mailolino" (saddle of pork stuffed with fennel and grilled veggies).

Brad and Les both enjoyed "tagliata di cervo" (sliced venison) with raspberry sauce. It was served with caramelized cabbage and onions. Oh yum!

Your food pix are always so great. I am drooling as I write this, and it's only 9 a.m.

Looks fantastic! I'm drooling into the keyboard.

This is the place where I had one of my best meals last year and it was here that they served me the savory ricotta fritter that I've been trying to duplicate (so far mine aren't as good)! They served it to us as an amuse and it was perfection!
