Everything you would expect of a Michelin starred restaurant. Elegant food with a strong regional focus including trout from the local river, truffles from the hills and the famous local ham and pork. A superb wine list, all at sensible mark-ups.

This restaurant is as good as they come, in Italy and possibly everywhere. Located in a old palace and part of an equally good hotel, it deservingly received recently a Michelin star. Unlikely similar places where you have to book well in advance, are crowded...More

As part of a small cooking and touring group, we went to Norcia and had a wonderful lunch here. The food was excellent and the hotel is fabulous. Norcia should be on your list to visit with its shops, restaurants and culture.

From the moment we arrived, we were served beautiful "amuse" from the chef. Absolutely delicious cuisine and well priced wines in a beautiful setting!
