This restaurant is located in a small piazza, steps away from the devastation that destroyed this historic town. While the food and service were not the best I have ever had, I have the greatest respect for people who persevere in the face of adversity.
What do I mean? This is a historic village, ravaged by not 1 but 2 or more earthquakes.
Many of the buildings and businesses are destroyed, lives ruined. In the face of this, some people and businesses carry on, trying to preserve a little normalcy. Under these circumstances, my usual criteria for what's good or not, for my taste, gets adjusted. This is one of those times. So I applaud the owners and encourage people to visit these places and spend there money.
Afterwards, we get to go home to our normal lives.
We went to a Norcia for lunch after visiting Cassia, sadly Norcia is in ruins many streets blocked off from fallen debris, two churches in pieces and very few visitors . However , many people are still operating with a smile on their face in spite of damage, military patrols to,prevent looting and a decline in visitors that makes the difference between a successful year and a downward spiral. The Locanda Del Teatro is open, right across the piazza from the theatre. We sat outside enjoyed good food served by people who were happy to see us. We had mixed antipasti with a selection of great cured meats including raw sausage ..spreadable and delicious and polenta topped with a sprinkling of tartufo Nero. Plates of gnocchi with three kinds of meat, lentil soup, and spaghetti ala Amatriciana were tasty. The food is good , the atmosphere lovely and the waitstaff interested.
Acceptable food and price, good location, we all had the 15 Euro menu which was fine. Good, but nothing out of the ordinary.
We had dinner on the terrace. Choices on menu comparable to other places in Norcia. The main course I ordered was not delivered correct and hence, we had to eat main course separately. Many wines on the wine list were not available (I assume it is a measure to promote the local producers.
Thank you sir, but you are not right, try again, maybe we finished something because we are working and some company cant deliver on time some goods, but we have because of it a lot of choices) see you
