we stumbled across this restaurant on our way home from assisi not intending to stop for lunch but it was early so we decided to give it a try - to our great fortune.

We ate - a great carving plate of hand cut parma style ham divided in two
i plate of huge ravioli filled with walnuts and cheese with a cream sauce covered with mushrooms and grated truffles.

i had a plate of cooked greens and then e both had salad and more greens with one main of mixed grill and one main of pork barbecued chop

water
wine
coffee and liquors - 60 euros, perfect

we ate really well, were served really beautifully and will return as soon as we can
the location is perfect for the motorway and we got to rome in less than an hour after having left, i would recommend this restaurant to anyone who want to eat great meat, taste fresh local and baked on the premises bread and receive a good service

Worst meal experience in Italy.
We have been 2 weeks all over Italy and this was horrendous.
We arrived and no one acknowledge us until 10 minutes later.
Once sited my wife wanted pizza for lunch and even though it was on the menu they don't serve it for lunch. Only for dinner. What?
We order four cheese risotto, veal scaloppine, potatoes chips and grilled vegetables.
Risotto was bland, no flavor. Veal was low quality without flavor.
Potatoes came as fresh fries instead of chips. Had to wait for the right ones. Grilled vegetables came 10 minutes after meal even though was a side order. To make it worse they were cold instead of just warm grilled.
Service was ok.
The best part was wine and water.
Do not waist your ride.

We got at the restaurant after refueling the car. I asked for a reliable restaurant close to the Fuel station and the man told us to get to the Gelsomino for a quick lunch. All nice and easy, very warm, comfortable and quick as expected! We had "bruschette"and all went very good. Then we moved into "pasta" with two different choice like tagliatelle and ravioli and I must admit all was nice. Perhaps the tortelli were a little bit too tasty and creamy but the overall was very nice.

Enjoyed the well prepared pork mixed grill and my son at every piece of his mixed grill so I'm sure he enjoyed it. My mother ordered som mushroom turtufo pasta which she loved and the mini cheesecakes and tiramisu were amazing.
