Ristorant Enoteca Onofri

We enjoyed another great dinner at the Slow Food Ristorant Enoteca Onofri in Bevagna. You enter a welcoming bar area, where over 900 labels are available, then are seated in the charming stone dining room with a huge fireplace.

Starters included crispy potatoes with baked brie and bacon, eggplant grilled with mozzarella, local cheeses with mostarda, and eggplant with goat cheese.

Both white and red wines were flowing by the time out entrees arrived. Most of us enjoyed maolino (baby suckling pig) stuffed with fennel and wrapped in lardo with grilled veggies, but Brad loved his grilled pigeon and polenta.

We were too full for dessert, but Brad let us taste his honey semi-freddo.

Our wine sommelier, Alan, is a good friend of Michael's. He took good care of us. On the bar were four different types of prosciutto: two from Spain (black hoof and white hoof), one from Tuscany, and one from Umbria. He gave us tastes of each to sample.

Ristorant Enoteca Onofri is definitely on our list of Umbria favorites!
