Orvieto: Il Trattoria Etrusca

Via Maitani , Phone: 0763-344016


Reviewed by: Karen from PA, review #266

When: 2001

It is a perfect stop on the way to one's villa rental after arriving early in Rome.

For me Italy, in general, and Tuscany and Umbria in particular are about tender greens, often arugula, homemade pasta and fall or spring truffles. (Add a porcini in fall and fava beans in spring!) So, that's what I had over and over again. Here the truffles were made a production of, sliced on a cart tableside. This was the first place we saw agretti - a green that looks like grass, tangy and tender when sautéed. This is also the only place that wouldn't give me a menu. In fact they made me feel like a spy.
