Preggio is an adorable little town set high in the Umbrian hills above Umbertide. It is quite small village and the locals sit in the piazza in front of two local bars. The town is pristine and perfect for taking a "passeggiata" (or stroll). La studentessa matta (me) came here to practice her Italian language conversation skills, to shop at the tiny grocery store (run by a charming man who will sell you milk and eggs to take back to your agriturismo) and to have dinner (TWICE) at la Castagna restaurant. At La Castagna the signora serves fresh home made pastas with rich sauces made from local funghi. You can sit on the back patio and enjoy a lovely view of the Umbria countryside.

This wonderful restaurant is a great find for anyone in the Niccone Valley looking for a memorable meal with absolutely fantastic views from the terrace. The view from the terrace as the sun is setting is priceless and worth a trip simply for that. Adding some great food- pheasant, pigeon, pastas- with the view makes this restaurant all the more worthwhile.

This little restaurant is worth a visit if only to watch a wonderful sunset from the outdoor terrace. The food is fine and the choice of dishes can be limited, especially when they run out of the favourite dishes ! The red house wine is very drinkable and very reasonably priced. The service when we visited recently was very poor. We sat for an hour before any food was served and yet the place was not too busy. However, we were not in a rush and we saw another amazing sunset.

Out of chaos, emerges very good and often exceptional food! Our 8th visit over several years and the atmosphere and quality remain consistent. The action from Maria's kitchen is noisy and frenetic with her son managing to serve all the tables in what must be a daily marathon exercise under his mother's ever critical tongue.
The result is a very enjoyable experience with good food and a surprisingly relaxed and calm atmosphere and is typically very family-friendly. The gnocchi are becoming locally famous!
