Vasanello: Il Cantinone Da Maura

Via Corte 18

Closing day: Tuesday

Reviewed by: travelers from FL, review #3803

When: 2011

Dining in a cave in the quaint small town of Vasanello

Directions: park in main square then follow signs down some small side streets

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of the villa we were staying in near Orte and we were not disappointed. Park in the square near the Orsini castle and follow the signs (or ask someone like we did).

The dining room is a cave dug out of the tufa rock so creates a great atmosphere. Our first visit we shared pappardelli cinghiali (wild boar, then I had tagliata (steak) on rucola with parmesan and my husband had grilled mixed seafood. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. They had a good wine list (be sure to look downstairs at the wine cellar cave). The second time we went, we had pizza from their wood burning oven. After dinner be sure to take a walk in the park just off the square with all the locals.
