The place is unexpected , in the middle of almost nowhere , but with a quite large parking lot , a terrace to eat outside . They try to serve the dishes in a non Italian way , nicely dressed and tastefully . It is...fine but not the 4/5 stars we had expected . The most disappointing were the prices of the wines . They try to do their utmost you do not order the local or regional housewines that are very good ( as we know the area and the wine houses that produce these wines ) with arguments such as : I just sold my last bottle , I only can sell you 1 of the Rosato bottle because Corona prevented us to go and buy there ( it is only 6 km away and this Rosato house wine is 4.0 on Vivino ! ) , the wine is not at the right temperature , .....All these arguments in 1 day , when trying to order 3 different wines . A large availability of more expensive wines where they exaggerate as to the prices : x3 or x 4 or 5 when compared to other restaurants closeby . The food does not make up to go there , neither does the environment . There is other restaurants closeby that have the same quality of food , nicer setting but correct pricing of their wines . It is mainly the “ pushy attitude “ that will make us not to go there anymore .More

This is a must do for everyone that loves hospitality as it should be and loves Italian food prepared the way no one else can prepare it. I dare you, go there and you will not be disappointed. Also the wine list offers something for...everyone and every budget.More

We had a fantastic day learning to make fresh pasta, turkey with vegetables, truffle fondue, and panna cotta with Francesca at her restaurant and farm. We did this as a part of a truffle hunting tour with TuscanMagic. Francesca joined us for the truffle hunt...near her place and then we went back to clean the truffles and prepare for lunch. We are a family of 4 from San Francisco and truly enjoyed the afternoon. Francesca was patient and kind and her translator/souls chef was super fun and energizing. We had an amazing lunch that we prepared and it was one of the best meals of our trip.More

Having enjoyed wonderful meals here, we and our friends were looking forward to a fantastic dinner. Unfortunately it was an utter let down. The staff and the butcher appear to have changed. The house starter was way short of its normal generous size and most...unimaginative. The only things that were good were the duck starter and the special beef diaphragm. The fillet steak had to be replaced and my lamb was cold and devoid of meat and when I pointed this out, I was neither offered a replacement nor bill reduction. The desserts were tasty, but not as good as normal. When the red wine had been decanted, the grechetto bottle with some wine in it was taken away with one member of the party only drinking white wine. We waited for an inordinate time between the clearance of starters and the main courses being served on cold plates. The restaurant was amazingly quiet for a Saturday evening - have the locals deserted? A thoroughly bad experience made worse by the fact it was our favourite restaurant locally. I will need re-assurance that the previous excellent food and service have been restored before I consider going back.More

The capelletti with black truffles, filled with potato and burrata were exceptional, as were the braised beef and meringues and pistacchio cream. on a cold Umbrian night we so enjoyed our meal beside the fireplace in a beautifully elegant, but not stuffy room. Tops for...this area!More

8 of us were schooled today in the art of Italian cooking. Francesca (the chef) and Daniele (the sous chef and interpreter) were hospitable and fun. We lunched on the food we made and were enormously pleased with how simple the recipes were and how...good they tasted. Well worth the 70 euros per person!More

La Casa di Francesca was our “local” being a 5 minute walk from our villa. We weren’t certain what to expect but our hosts had recommended it - Lucky us! It is a charming restaurant with friendly staff, great food and affordable prices. We were...a large party and sampled most things on the menu over the two nights we were there and found everything delicious. I especially liked the asparagus tart (more like a soufflé) with egg and truffle and the pici ragu. I can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough.More

We attended for a cooking class and then lunch (of the dishes we helped to prepare). Francesca and Daniele were excellent hosts and were fun, warm and engaging. We had a lesson for two but I can see that this would be just as much...fun with a big group. Daniele also helped us with our very bad Italian as we cooked. We hope to visit again.More
