We have eaten here regularly and I am always struck by the air of relaxed elegance. The food is refined and there is an excellent wine list

We've eaten here many times and always loved the personal attention and quality cooking. However, while prices have generally gone down in this area compared to the UK (we've been visiting since 2001), here they have gone only upwards. I fear they are pricing themselves out in a very competitive part of Umbria. The food, however, remains good.

We have been coming here for seven or eight years now and it is always top of our list. The food was amazing as always, delicately balanced with maximum flavour, I have always found it hard to find somewhere better for flavour. The owner and chef Giancarlo is incredibly friendly and always happy to help with choices when we attend,... More

This restaurant is different to all all others in Montone - unfair to compare - this is "proper" cooking, not just predominantly serving delicious Umbrian produce. We pre-booked for 21:00 on Saturday 6/8 - we were greeted by the "Executive Chef" by name as we arrived. A very nice touch - "perfect". We had booked a romantic outside table on... More

This restaurant is in the Michelin guide so that should tell you something about the food. The food here is art! We had a lovely romantic meal here sitting outside in July. Yes it's expensive, but that is to be expected at this level.

My wife and I enjoyed an evening of fine dining with Giancarlo. All of our dinner meal was finely detailed and scrumptious. As with our prior experiences, the wine choices and variety were fantastic.

We had dined at La Laconda del Capitano in 2013 and described our meal then as one of the most, if not the most, memorable meal of our lives. We had said that arranging to re-visit the restaurant was almost a good enough reason for visiting Italy again. And we did re-visit Italy and stayed with friends near Montone. So... More

Did not know what to expect when visiting Montone, a small charming mountain top village in northern Umbria. The restaurant/hotel was so charming, almost out of central casting. We had a table on lovely outdoor patio, owner/chef met us, poured Prosecco, and offered us the menu. The wait staff all spoke very good English, and nice soft jazz music in... More

A Michelin star restaurant. Chef came out to greet diners. Good menu if you like fish and truffles. No vegetarian option on menu. Portions small, more of a taster menu size. No vegetables on offer on menu. Expected it to be a real treat, expectations were not met. Not value for money.

My husband & I ate here one night during our fortnight in Montone. We opted for the beautiful outdoor terrace area which was both peaceful and atmospheric. The wine list was extensive and the menu - varied and interesting, showcasing contemporary twists on traditional Umbria cuisine. Although we did not stay at the Inn itself it did look quite delightful... More
