We returned to Vinosus tihs year, having found it a couple of years ago when visting Orvieto for the day.
Then, as now, it was a blazingly hot day in August. Then - hot, thirsty hungry and footsore - we had stumbled on Vinosus almost by accident, tucked away behind its inauspicious frontage in the less busy end of the Piazza Duomo. This time the thought of lunch at Vinosus sustained the male party members as we trudged from one shoe or postcard shop to another in the morning.
Lunch at Vinosus is a great pleasure; the terrace, almost invisible from the Piazza, gives wonderful views of the surrounding country and the rear of the Duomo. and with its wide umbrellas and comfortable furniture, is a great setting.
The food is reliably excellent, from the antipasti to the pastas & pizzas and the meat dishes, and I personally can report I had the best pasta dish I've ever eaten in the form of the Umbricelli Amatriciana I had there this year.
The wine list features the best local and Umbrian regional wines, and led on both occasions to savouring several bottles of the tasty Orvieto Classico Riserva.
Service is prompt and courteous - the staff reluctantly eventually revealing their English was loads better than our Italian.
Lunch is wonderful, but we have yet to try dinner; maybe an objective for next time.
