Thanks to our aged navigator which took us round the World for fun, we arrived late (3PM) but it was not an issue and we were welcomed and given a table immediately. The waiter was very helpful and guided us in our choices selected from an interesting and usual selection on the menu. The food was excellent and not by any means expensive given the quality. As they have rooms, a lovely pool and a very peaceful setting, we may return for a few days sometime.

Quiet location with a great view over the valley of Gubbio especially on their terrace. Rather simple quality of food.
Moreover the staff speaks just a tiny bit of English but still tries to comfort you.
The bill did not match our order which was quite disappointing so make sure you do not get tricked.
Overall you might consider stopping by but i think you'll find better places to eat while in Gubbio.

we had a nice time at Faro rosso. We had lunch there twice and both times we were not disappointed. They also have a nice swimming pool (not sure if open to restaurant guests) and run an interesting agriturismo (we are thinking of trying it out another time). Impressive views of the valley, Gubbio and the mountains (Appennini). Unfortunately both times the AC was not working properly and with the extraordinary heat wave going on we struggled with the heat. They mentioned something about the AC "getting blocked" because of the extreme temperatures bit I think it just needs fixing. Most of the times due to the position up high on a hill I would imagine temperature not to be a concern. They often host weddings hence it can be either closed or a bit rowdy.
The food was great, the antipasti (hams with crescia or radicchio in balsamic vinegar and melted cheese) are good but for us the highlights were the pastas. Cappellucci (some large raviolis) with truffle or truffle filled gnocchis were very good, as were the tagliatelle al sugo d'oca.

Only visited once - nice antipasti buffet and lovely, perfectly cooked fillet steak...one of the best I have eaten in Italy...tender, rare and with a good peppercorn sauce.
Not fancy, but well cooked and tasty. We were not very keen on the wine they suggested and the place was a bit dead - not much atmosphere- but other than that everything was rather enjoyable - we were with friends so really didn't mind the lack of ambiance.
