The restaurant is a charming brick vaulted space and has works by various artists as decoration. I was welcomed very warmly at a time when it was so close to kitchen closing time that I had been turned away from another place. The menu included several typical Umbrian dishes that you don't see everywhere, but when I saw that they made big meal-sized salads, I was a goner. You hardly find them here and once in a while it is a good thing. I ordered olives ascolane which arrived smoking hot, and a salad with grilled chicken and toasted almonds. The mixed salad base was very good and the overall effect was just what I wanted. Even nicer was the availability of good wine by the glass. The hostess told me what bottles were open-- there were three-- and I chose an Aglianico. It was the best Aglianico I've had anywhere. My water was served in a pharmacy flask, looked smart, that. The bread served was a baguette with salt! Three unusual things in one meal. I was very, very happy.

It all came to 18, which seemed pretty reasonable for great wine and bread with salt. I absolutely will return.
