We have a farm in Citta della Peive, Umbria and often visit Cetona for lunch. This restaurant is authentic and elegant and one of our favorites in the area. Lovely decor and always excellent food. Go and enjoy!

We ate outside on the terrace in the main square of this lovely hill town. Excellent pasta dishes with porcini or ragu followed by delicious home made ice cream. Mid priced, good quality.
