#Swoon! Still speechless at the wonderful tasting menu here with impeccable service by the Maitre'D Laura and her staff. Local ingredients expertly prepared by the chef and paired with incredible wines. Must do in Umbria - AMAZING!

We greatly enjoyed the tasting menu which as hoped featured various local gastronomic delights. The restaurant compliments the superb hotel and is well worth the indulgence. True fine dining.

What a lovely dinner! The staff and chef were both very accommodating, creating a delicious vegetarian tasting menu off the cuff.

This is one of the best restaurants we've eaten in in Italy, and we've eaten in quite a few. The chef, Valentino Palmisano, is extremely creative and technically superb. What is unique is his adding techniques he learned working in China and Japan to Italian...More
