“Ultimate food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

Just a little hotel with a few tables out in front, but the female chef was fantastic. The menu was in pencil and it was too dark to read it. The flavor of the pasta was unbelievable. None of the dishes were less than superb. Service for me was perfect, though dishes came out at a leisurely pace. Another table complained and their service got so bad they left.

We had read about Villa Roncalli and really wanted to go there on our first trip in 2008 but were unable to. So this time, we drove 1.5 hours to get there, and of course, being American, we were quite early for dinner. However, Chef was extremely accommodating for us and prepared for us a wonderful meal and kept bringing dishes for us to "try." From the salad, to the pasta, to the steak and risotto and then dessert, it was outstanding. Our server, who was quite young and still trainining, was very attentive and professional under his aunt's (Chef)watchful eye. We were even given a bottle of wine for later. I cannot express how friendly, attentive and accommodating Chef was for us. It was a wonderful experience. Villa Roncalli is in a beautiful setting and conveniently located for traveling around. Next time, I hope to actually stay there.

It doesn't look like anything worthwile when looking for the hotel driving south out of Foligno on the Viale Roma, but once you drive into the lane, pass the vegetables garden and see the villa, you enter a world on its own.
The hotel seems most of all to be an excuse for dining or having breakfast, as the owner is one of the best slow food and natural cooks we have encountered in Italy.
There are only a few rooms and limited set of couverts, and as the lady of the house is the cook and manager, you should not come here when in a hurry. In the morning, you might be waken up by the sound of the lady of the house in her kitchen, preparing the 'fonds' for the evening, or baking bread, cakes and puddings for breakfast.
Once you allow yourself to the lazy mood, the swimmingpool is just a perfect surplus.

  • Liked — this is slow italy with excellent food. You love it or you hate it.
  • Disliked — owner speaks only very little english or french
