great traditional restaurant in the center of Foligno, worth the trip even if you were not planning to visit!

Directions: The restaurant is near the Foligno main Square

We live in Assisi and we often think that we have discovered almost all restaurants where it is worth it to go, so it is an additional surprise to discover such a great place at less than 30 minutes drive from home. Foligno is not the most famous tourist destination in Umbria but it has a local reputation for good food.

We got a tip from a trustworthy friend and promptly went for lunch today. The Osteria del Teatro is a small and pretty restaurant near the main square. In fact with those wonderful vaulted ceilings and white table-clothes it does not look like an Osteria - cheap wine shop - at all. Pierino the cook and manager has opened up this place only a few months ago but he has worked in various excellent restaurants for years.

We had a mixed appetizers of patè, fantastic prosciutto, goat cheese, caponata and an incredibly sweet melon, a homemade pasta with wild herbs and tomato, a melt-in-the-mouth tagliata and the best molten chocolate soufflè I had in years.

With two bottles of good local wines from Montefalco and coffee the bill was approximately 40 euros per person, a bargain for the quality and ambiance. We were a bit carried away, but a three course meal would be around 25-30 euros and it would be more than enough. Highly recommended!
