Fantastic lunch right in the piazza.

Having lunch in Emilia Romagna was a nice change of pace. The food is very different from Umbrian cooking. This place was recommended to us by the Vignoli sisters, the potters we had come here to visit. It is located in the piazza right across from the Duomo.

The food was excellent. My appetizer was an antipasto platter with meats from the region. The prosciutto was excellent and I could have done with a whole tray of the mortadella. M had an interesting and tasty salad of potatoes, green beans and medallions of octopus tentacles. It was delicious. Primo for me was cuzci (spelling is wrong, but the pasta were fresh wide egg noodles) tossed with braised red onion and guanciale. Besides the ravioli at Antica Hostaria in Todi, this pasta was my favorite. So simple. M had gnocchietta in a very subtle pesto.

This was one of our best meals of the trip and made me want to come to this region for more eating. Two fizzy waters. 41.50 euros.
