a welcome oasis in Bastardo area

We are local residents and know the restaurant "scene" in the Todi - Gualdo Cattaneo - Montefalco area very well. We have for a long time wished for a lunch stop in Bastardo where we tend to do our shopping. What a pleasant surprise to have found Ristorante 4 Piedi & 8.5 Pollici, a few months ago, even though it has been operating for years. I cannot recommend this hosteria more highly, both for quality and creativity of the food, as well as the personal charm and hospitality of the owner and her friends, the latter being often present at lunch.

The owner, chef, and wait person all-in-one is Laura, and she is a delight. Her spoken menu changes daily according to what is available and to what she feels like preparing. I don't know how she does it but there is always a selection of of four or five primi and the same for second courses. She also is quite good for the sweets. Prices are very reasonable especially when you consider that Laura always provides, as part of the "cover", an appetizer before your food arrives. Small but good selection of wines and even local micro-brewery beers round out the offering.

If you are in the Todi - Bevagna - San Terenziano - Gualdo area and looking for a lunch stop for great food and excellent service, in a cozy, relaxed, eclectic setting, you cannot do better.
