Great place, homemade pasta and a friendly staff. Went for lunch and had a nice pasta dish. Lots of taste. Had a little trouble finding the place, but really glad we didn't give up.

This is a great restaurant that is way off the beaten path. We stopped in for lunch and were amazed by how delicious the food is hear. The owner/chef, Laura, is lovely, friendly, welcoming and a master in the kitchen. The antipasto misto included crostini with eggs and truffles, various salumi, wonderful cheeses and homemade rose jam. Wildly creative! The... More

This restaurant is one of the best kept secrets in Umbria! I ate there last summer with a visiting friend from Sweden and couldn't stop thinking about it. Went again this year with 2 different groups of visitors and it exceeds previous experiences every time! Laura and her partner are so creative with their menu and everything is made from... More

We had the loveliest (and bestes!) lunch ever at Laura Sallegias "Ristorante 4 Piedi & 8.5 Pollici" in Bastardo. You have to try her Umbrian starters that kept coming for 2 hours. Besides being a great cook, Laura is a wonderful host and interested citizen of the world. She speaks German, English and Italian (of course). She and her colleague... More

Today we went visiting wineries in the Sagrantino wine area and found this restaurant on trip advisor (restaurant four feet and eight and a half thumbs). It took at least half an hour of driving around Bastardo to find it. It is behind a big supermarket and the bar crystal. Just keep trying and asking people. There are no signs.... More

I often go to this restaurant. It is tucked away (as Italian restaurants often are), but well worth finding. Last week I took some friends there for lunch. As always Laura, assisted by Paolo, were most welcoming. As a starter, we were provided (on the house) with bruschetti, with the new olive oil. We then had various delicious pasta dishes... More

If you visit this part of Umbria, make sure you visit this amazing place. We were lucky enough to find this gem on TripAdvisor and had one of the best lunches in Italy on our so far 3 week road trip.
