Description: THE CAPPONI restaurant, and three generations, synonymous with typical Umbrian cuisine. We offer traditional recipes in key slightly innovative. This concept is clearly expressed in dishes such as Cappelletti soup, tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms, burrata cheese hats in black truffle of Norcia, the rabbit and stuffed pigeon, duck and lamb roast. All the pasta is homemade, like the dessert (the rock of Assisi, brustengolo polenta ..) We are open all year.

Authentic Italian food like my grandfather used to eat. I am vegetarian which usually means insalata mixed, pizza and/or pasta and a few side vegs (read: zucchini) but this restaurant has tons and tons of choices, eg. Chick peas prepared with mashed potatoes in a tower over a stewed and ground cabbage, gorgeous cheese platters with nuts, honey, homemade marmalades (I had quince). there are many, many choices of cheeses, cow, sheep and goat. I'm awfully fussy about cheese and had my choice. Grilled veg platter is not run of the mill (half-raw) eggplant, zucchini, etc but instead beautifully prepared and executed spinach 2 ways (one in a creamy, mini souffle), crunchy-tender eggplant, artichoke, raddichio, etc. You get the idea - not run of the mill, instead, really well thought out. A very diverse menu for both veg and non veg. elegant service, beautiful and spotless restaurant. Lovely!

Came back aged 32 last eating there when I was 11 and they remembered. Lovely welcome. Choice of 2 set menus 15 euro 'of the day' or 24 euro 'traditional' which we took and included wine, water and coffee. Food v good, house wine v good, pasta excellent - particularly homemade Umbrian variety. Dining room a little dark and dated but I expect livelier on a weekend. Hope it is still here when I return again.
