Wonderful, first class restaurant with typical regional specialities; alittle expensive, but the price includes special touches.

This place was our favorite place in Umbria - not cheap, and not a lot of English spoken, but there was a very warm greeting and outstanding food which was elegantly prepared and presented. Definitely a special place to go.

Four of us had lunch - a bottle of wine, a primo (pasta) for each of us, two contorni and two desserts (dolce), plus coffee. In addition, the restaurant serves a complimentary glass of prosecco and a wonderful amuse bouche to start (ours was a parmegiano cheese crisp topped with local prosciutto).

We had a local rosso from Antonelli - a first rate red wine producer from Montefalco (a nearby, Umbrian wine town) - which is just a great simple food-pairing red wine. The pastas were, starting from good to outstanding, as follows: a raviolini with cheese and meat with a tomatoes, zucchini and basil sauce; a tagliatelle with an amitriciana sauce with the local pork bacon; and an out of the park white lasagne with black truffles.

For desserts, each couple shared - one a crostina with apples, the other a crisp with a chantilly sauce. The total damage, euro-wise, was about 140, or at the time of eating, around $185. It was well-worth it. The only thing different I would do, if I went back, would be to order the mixed bruschette of the region. An Italian couple sitting at the next table each ordered a plate as their main courses, and the bruschette looked and smelled fabulous (obviously, there was a surfeit of truffles in late September 2010).
