My partner and I lunched there early afternoon in November 2018.
The restaurant serves a hotel of the same name. The restaurant has a very attractive ivied facade. The dining room is large, open and airy, dominated by the hugest pumpkin I have ever seen. A lovely marble mosaic tiled floor. There were only four other diners at the time, perhaps because we were very early. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
We commenced with complementary Norcia crudo ham on warm crisp pancakes to be eaten with the hands. A great start to the meal.
Our waiter recomended an Umbrian white from Orvieto; dry but with slight fruit in the aftertaste.
I had tagliatelle with black truffles. Pasta perfectly al dente and a profusion of truffly happiness. Truffles are soooooo good!
My partner had spaghetti with bianco ragu(no tomato) from a Chianina bullock. The ragu was based on mince in Bologna style. (Further south ragu is based on chunkier meat.) She was delighted with her choice.
Next we had a cheese plate (mainly various ages of Pecorino) With pear, walnut and jam.
We were then presented with a further gift: almond biscuits to be dipped in sweet Vin Santo. Mmmmmm.
The price was not unreasonable, the food was terrific and the service was exemplary.
The place is slightly tucked away, which gives a sense of privacy and seclusion, so you should seek it out when you deseve a rare treat.
