Summer truffle... perfect option!

I decided to spend a different "ferragosto" with my family: weather was uncertain and I didn't want the crowd of the seaside area: off we go to Gubbio. After a nice walk we decided to stop at this restaurant for lunch. The waiter is super and ready to help you and suggest you what is best. Even my... read more

..and this is our fifth time visiting. Food and service all top notch. The crispy almond chicken with orange and parmesan salad is to die for. The desserts may well finish you off though. Definitely try the salty butter and truffle pasta, a local speciality.

We had dinner at a table outdoors, lovely place, quiet and beautiful (but also the inner restaurant is nice, in an old vaulted house). We had two starters, chicken with almonds in Parmesan crust and salad with oranges and melted cheese with black truffles, and two mains, typical local noodles with mushrooms and sausage and pumpkin dumplings with cheese and...

The food was incredible. We had 7 dishes among us and the tastes and presentations were better than the one before. Service was wonderful and the location and ambience fine.

This restaurant was one of the best we visited on our trip. In Gubbio this was tied with another place as the best we had. Food here is excellent with a service to match. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable about both food and wines. Well furnished seating area and lovely atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone looking for that something a... More

On our Umbria tour last day we had the luck to enter by chance (at 15:00) this restaurant. We were the only people in the beautiful downstairs well furnitured room. We enjoyed an excellent service and the dishes we selected from the antipasti/primi/secondi/dolci menu were delicious and attractive. It was our pleasure to say good bye to Umbria's gourmet this...

We have been twice in one week which we rarely do but this restaurant is so deserving of repeated visits. A beautiful setting with vaulted brick ceilings, service from Alena that was extremely attentive as well as excellent suggestions of food and wine combined with the most exquisite food from chief Ignazio make this restaurant one of our favorites worldwide.
