Al Leone is an unpretentious restaurant in the small and quiet town of Collazzone. From its beautiful terrace you can enjoy the last rays of the sun kissing the surrounding hills while sipping a glass of prosecco that the owner will have offered you upon arrival at the restaurant. Food here is simple, fresh and delicious. The pasta, whether carbonara, al sugo d'oca, ai quattro formaggi is impeccable and you simply want more. The main courses are delicious too, like vitello tonnato or grilled salciccia. But in addition, the wood fired oven delivers pizzas that are so good you will want to come back again and again. Pizzas are simply outstanding.
We keep on coming back, and we have never been disappointed. Final touch, a small plate of cookies is offered at the end of dinner which is as sweet as the bill. You will find the restaurant prices very reasonable indeed.

We were just driving around aimlessly exploring this beautiful part of Umbria when we cam across Collazzone. This beautiful hidden borgo took our breath away with its rosy hued beauty.

We visited in November 'al'ora di pranzo' and so it was completely deserted but I did happen to find one chap closing his little shop and so I asked him where we should eat. His response was that we could not go wrong at Al Leone.

We walked the few steps down to this trattoria and first impressions left us a little uncertain. Some of the tables/table linens were a little garish (bright yellow if I remember correctly) and there were gnomes and concrete statuary up the steps. Also, it was completely empty

But because we had ben recommended by a local we decided to go in.

Well, I am so glad we did. We were greeted by a very cordial lady who was our host and to our delight immediately offered us each a lovely glass of local prosecco on the house. It was so delicious we ordered a carafe of it to go with our meal.

The menu was extensive, so whilst we were deciding on our entrees and mains we ordered a serve of vedure fritte, fried vegetables.

OMG they were to die for! Fresh, crisp, tender inside, full of flavour - just wonderful and a very generous serve.

We continued with entrees. My daughter decided to have the polenta with local sausage. When it arrived her eyes nearly popped out of her head at the size of it - it was a very generous main meal size - so alhough we all had our own entrees we also shared hers. yum.

Then for mains we ordered the skewer, pork chop and my husband and I ordered the 'stinco di maiale'.

I had made a mistake thinking it was a pork cutlet until our dishes arrived at the table and we were greeted with Flinstone sized pork knuckles! We all just looked at each other incredulously but tucked in and just loved every bite!

We decided against ordering dessert (remembering that we were only here for an impromptu lunch!)but our lovely host brought us out a little plate of handmade biscuits. We finished with coffee and were satiated and very happy.

Our bill came to around Euro 85 for the four of us including wine, two courses each and coffees. We will certainly be back and highly recommend this little gem.

Have eaten there twice in the last week,. We went back the second time because we really enjoyed the food and friendliness from the first visit. All of the dishes we tried were great, but the Gnocchi with Quatro fornaggio was fabulous, with a very nice blend of cheeses and perfectly prepared home made gnocchi.

This restaurant does the most delicious bread on arrival, crusty, salty and hot, delicious. You are also offered a glass of Prosecco on arrival, which is free of charge. The pizzas are very very good. We tried some of the different local dishes too and were not disappointed. The pasta with artichoke hearts was really nice. I had stinko too, which is a shank of meat, very tender and very tasty. We also had the specialty rocket and pecorino salad. The staff were friendly and the service was usually good. The coffee at the end of the meal was also good. We visited this restaurant four times in our three week stay
