Whenever we visit Paciano, which is often, we snuggle into a hidden terrace at the foot of this gorgeous medieval town. Massimo the owner greets us with a broad grin, seats us at a table looking out over the valley and lago di Trasimeno, and our favorite culinary journey on the border of Umbria and Tuscany begins. Local dishes, freshly made pasta, flavors that could only come from locally sourced ingredients (and all of them are), a grand variety of dishes, whether smoked fish, grilled lamb, different kinds of fresh pasta with incredible yet simple sauces, and a panna cotta to die for. It is the kind of restaurant that lingers in your heart, with its warm owner and luxuriously rustic palate. We already promised Massimo we would be back next year. And we will!
