After a long trek we had our head set for pizza, the restaurant showed that it was on the menu...but it turned out the pizza guy was of....we selected something else and our youngest daughter even found a new pasta favourite in the spaghetti carbonara....a very good choice. The daughter of the owner and the owner has good stories to... More

This time we called in just for two super meals, staying elsewhere as the Taverna, where we stayed last year, was full. Bepe had passed us on to a neighbouring agriturismo but we made a point of eating at the Taverna a couple of times while we were in Castelluccio, once when it was quiet and once on a Saturday...

We skipped lunch in Norcia to try in Castelluccio I had read about. Unfortunately after stopping for many photos along the way, it was a bit late for lunch when we arrived and the place was closed. We walked around the tiny town and stopped at Taverna Castelluccio, one of two places we saw in the upper part of town... More

So if you like lamb, try the lamb pie (it's more of a terrine) - it was truly delicious & a genuine example of Umbrian cooking. The soup was also good. And service was very good. The restaurant offers some of the best views of Piano Grande available.

Arriving in Castelluccio at around 1.00 on a beautiful day we decided to have lunch here. We had an outdoor table across the road from the restaurant with an amazing view over the Piano Grande and the road we had come on. We opted for the speciality lentil soup which was crammed full of delicious lentils. Service was enthusiastic and... More

Our first visit to Norcia and our host encouraged us to drive to Castelluccio. Wow. It was worth every hair-pin turn. When we got to the top, there was a magnificent view of the protected, lentil producing valley with Castelluccio across. Onward and to lunch. The Taverna seems to be the best choice from the outside and the inside proved... More

This was one of the best meals we had on our trip to Italy. They did things with porcini mushrooms that I didn't think was possible! The atmosphere was fun and relaxed, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Buffet breakfast, which could include eggs, was good variety with excellent croissants. Half board four-course dinners were chosen from the vast menu. Food was very tasty, well-presented and an enormous amount. Excellent and friendly service.

A tasty, fun meal. Except for us, the taverna was packed with locals, all of whom seemed to be on close terms with the proprieter and staff. Nevertheless, we were treated as if we belonged--not a common occurance in Italian eateries. The fare is heavy on meats and beans, the portions good sized and reasonably priced. We were treated to...
