Good Umbrian home-style cooking with elegant desserts; pizza available too. Thoughtful service. Prices mid-range. Some good local wines, but wine list needs work.
Directions: **Behind Hotel Dany
The hotel and restaurant were so good, the owners so friendly, the room prices so reasonable, that I actually redesigned parts of my stay in Italy to have an excuse to stay an extra day the first time, and to go back a second.
Strongozzi al tartufo, a B; ostrich with sage and rosemary on a bed of rugola with a bit of vinegar, A-;cheese plate — caciotta, grano padana, pecorino di fossa, gorgonzola; two desserts, mousse al torrone (A) and what they call a sbricciolata ("crumble" of puff pastry under a perfectly textured flavored cream, B+). Sagrantino Adanti; limoncello.
Tagliatelle al pomodoro e asparagi selvaggi (thin wild asparagus from nearby roadside), B; saltimbocca alla Romana A-; a grigliata mista (not really ratable, but quite good); 2 desserts, which this time left me a bit disappointed mostly because of the lack of variety: a "delizia al rhum e al cioccolato" — something between an icecream and a mousse, B; and a "crêpe al caramello" which was indeed a homemade crêpe but quite spoiled by being filled with vanilla ice cream — banalized and losing any real identity as a crêpe, C+: still, as sweets, well executed and not bad.
Cannelloni in rosso, A-; chicory (B+: too salty) and broccoletti (A verging on A+); then filetto al marsala, very good tender meat, rather little marsala, but an A here too, with fries, A-. Sagrantino Scacciadiavoli 2000. Crème brûlée, A; coffee, grappa di Sagrantino.
Overall rating (restaurant): A-. Value for money (restaurant + hotel): A+. Warmly recommended.
