I love this restaurant and have been going for over 10 years. The staff are friendly and the food is consistently good. Try the capelli d'angelo (home made pasta with traditional tomato sauce). Also try their antipasti - loads of home-made delicacies!

We had home made pasta, after primi piatti that contained antipasti, ricotta and cheese. It was all delicious, very well made and served by friendly, humorous and attentive staff. The vegetables were picked in the forests near by and we're cooked or served as salads in amazing ways. After dinner we were offered various home made liqueurs from which it... More

if you like home made pasta, this restaurant is for you. Best angel hair pasta, known locally as maccheroncini, apparently is by a woman who lives in Poggio Moiano and everyone in the 20 km radius orders pasta from her. I also recommend another pasta dish: ravioli. They are stuffed with the ricotta filling, spiced with local majoram and you... More

I am in Italy for vacation (from NYC) and am currently at the Fara Music Festival (Fara Sabina). At night, I listen to free live outdoor jazz concerts and during the day venture out by bike to ride through the rolling countryside. Yesterday I found myself in the town of Poggio Moiano, and hungry. Maria Fontana restaurant topped off an... More
