One of the highlights of our visit to Viterbo – itself a gem of a city – was the restaurant Angoletto della Luce: a real culinary find. Its carefully constructed menu, neither too large nor too small, though slanted towards fish, offers sufficient variety and choice to satisfy both fish and meat lovers alike. Having ate there on several occasions and, together with my partner, sampled a wide selection of what is on offer, I can say, with all honesty, that all the dishes are prepared using the freshest of fresh ingredients of the very highest quality. Beautifully served up and of ample proportions, they also taste as good as they look. Indeed, of deceptive simplicity, marrying a few key, complementary ingredients, which bring out the flavour of the chosen recipe's main ingredient, the result is at once both light and flavorsome, a far from easy effect to achieve. Having, as noted, tasted a significant portion of the menu, I would be hard pressed to recommend one dish over the other, but if pressed I would recommend: the sautéed clams, the pasta with asparagus, the roast turbot, the beef in aged balsamic vinegar and finally the almond semifreddo. Finally, if one adds to all this the restaurant's clean-cut and modern setting, its elegant, but not intimidating, quite the contrary, décor, which manifests itself in everything from the general interior design, furniture, linen and tableware, plus the friendly, attentive, helpful, yet never intrusive service, you have a winning combination: one which gives the very best of Italian restaurants a run for their money, one which is a must if you are in Viterbo and well worth the detour if not.
