We drove from Spoleto, Umbria on a Sunday to meet up with friends from Rome and had lunch at Il Cortigiano. This restaurant is in an enviable position, firstly it is in the hilltop town of Castel San Pietro, surrounded by olive trees with a view on the horizon of Farfa Abbey. There was a wide selection of antipasti including cured meats, olives, bruschetta with Sabina DOP extra virgin olive oils (we reckon the olive oil from the Sabina area is No. 1 in the country). Also there was coratella (lamb interior chopped and panfried with rosemary, onion, garlic and pepper) and tripe, both typical dishes of the Roman countryside. Obviously these dishes won't appeal to everyone but there was none left over in the dishes!! Then we had risotto, a pasta dish and grilled sausages. Some of us had dessert, others just had coffee. Particular mention to the friendly staff who offered a tasting of Sardinian mirto liqueur. We split the bill and it came to under 30 Euro per head, including 2 bottles of wine and mineral water. It was an enjoyable experience.

Time seems to have stopped at Castel San Pietro, a tiny and enchanting medieval village in lower Sabina, just 40 km from Rome. Ristorante il Cortigiano is managed by a friendly family who have succeded in offering great meals at great prices. Everything is local, from the olive oil to the wine, the menu is simple but offers a a wide variety of succulent dishes. Wonderful meat! Look forward to enjoying the terrace this summer with a view on the surrounding hills :)
