This restaurant is located along the pedestrian street that from the main medieval city's gate (Porta S. Agostino) gives access to the center of this picturesque Umbrian town (but least known of other like Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto, Orvieto, etc.). The restaurant is tastefully furnished, and gives a pleasant impression of intimacy.
But what is more important is the food. Although we are in a region (Umbria) where it isn't easy to eat badly, the restaurant is distinguished by the care with which the dishes are prepared. We realized that this is a family business, and that in particular mom works in the kitchen.
We can tell of course of what we tried: as a first course of "strangozzi" (sort of thick spaghetti, typical of Umbria) with black truffles (also typical of Umbria: the white ones here are almost unknown). We both chose this excellent dish. We then requested two starters, but using them as a main course: scrambled eggs (with truffles as well); and mix of Umbrian cheeses, garnished with a delicious grape jam. All accompanied by a glass of fine "Sagrantino", a Montefalco renowned wine. Overall, you could not wish for better food.
The bill was fair; the service, very friendly, could have been even more welcome, if it had been a bit faster.
