We have been at the Retrogusto restaurant with my family. We asked for a pizza Enzo which is not a standard pizza they have on the menu. This pizza was spectacular. The restaurant is very pretty and the staff very polite.

One of the cardinal rules for finding great food when travelling is: Eat where the locals eat. When we entered Retrogusto and found it filled with Italian families enjoying Sunday lunch I knew we'd found a winner. Even so I wasn't prepared for the complexity of flavours and sheer deliciousness of our meal.

We started off with an Onion Spaghetti (a nod to the local Onion Festival) sitting on a sweet pepper sauce. The dish didn't look like a stand out when it arrived, but after I put the first forkful into my mouth, my eyes popped open and I looked at my husband waiting for him to put this first forkful into his mouth. He just looked up at me and said: "WOW". Each mouthful was better than the one that went before it, and I have to admit that it took all my resolve not to lick the plate at the end of it.

After the pasta dish I couldn't wait for the secondi, a delicious frittata and fresh salad. This didn't top the pasta dish but instead was the perfect followup to the first dish. We ended the meal with a fruit salad of local woodland berries and other seasonal fruit in some sort of light floral broth which was like summer in the mouth.

The service at Retrogusto topped off our delightful culinary experience. Our multi-lingual waitress, Sarah, was incredibly warm and attentive. Even though the place was packed, she took the time to answer all our questions and like every great waitress, noticed little things we needed without being asked. Towards the end of our meal we met the owners, Paola and Fabio, who were making the rounds at every table. They were such a wonderful couple, and we were touched that they took the time to talk to us and welcome us to this beautiful region in their beautifully accented perfect English.

The only regret I had leaving Retrogusto is that we found it at the end of our stay. because it is definitely the type of restaurant that I would love to try over and over again.
