My partner and I basically stumbled into La Romita while we were in the small medieval village for a classical music concert. Overall, it completely surprised us with its delicious food.
This is a very unassuming restaurant, and basically one of the only two restaurants we saw in the town. The first thing about this restaurant is that it has an amazing view. It's perfect for a sunset dinner, because all the tables face the valley. (There are mosquitoes during the summer, of course.)
The maître d' basically recited the menu to us in broken English. We tried all different types of food on his recommendation, which I definitely recommend.
The antipasta plate was beautiful and contained only vegetarian items. There is a heavy vegetarian focus at this restaurant, and between the two of us, the vegetarian dishes definitely beat the meat dishes. There was a spelt dish in little croquettes that was absolutely fantastic.
This restaurant is quite the little gem of a find. Very local and very authentic. Because we didn't see a menu, we were complete tourists and ordered a Caprese salad, to which he scoffed at me and said they don't make mozzarella cheese here so why would he serve that here. I learned that factoid, all right!
Definitely recommend if you're in town!
