Having only one night in Gubbio my wife and I were keen to find some good food and I think we hit the jackpot! The dining room, is a beautifully restored high-vaulted cellar beneath what was once the town house of the son of Federico, Duke of Urbino whose Palazza is on the hill above. The food was just as splendid. After nibbling hand made straw like biscuits while we ordered we were presented an unexpected but delicious pre-starter. Wanting a light starter we had chosen the broad bean, spinach and olive oil dish which was wonderful. The textures and flavours matched perfectly. The blended 'just beans and olive oil' supported a small island of just-wilted spinach. A very memorable picture of a dish. Wanting to try the local cuisine my main dish was the wild boar stew in Sagrantino, a local wine, unique to the area. This was equally memorable, as was the glass of Sagrantino that accompanied it. My wife was equally impressed with her light and tasty sea bass fillet with tomato and black olives. Finishing off we shared a crepe stuffed with ice cream on a bed of fruit.
This is a family business. The service was attentive and our questions about the menu and the building were met with great enthusiasm. The bill at 79 Euro seemed entirely fair given the quality of the food and service. In the UK we sample good restaurants in London and elsewhere. This was one of the best meals we have ever eaten. I'd come back to Gubbio just explore their menu further!
