Maria Fontana's is one of the few daytime restaurants open for lunch, between meal service and dinners in Poggio Moiano. Parking is on the street. We asked for vegeterian choices and our waiter asked the cook what was available fresh for today. Their accomodating attitude made our meal worthwhile. Homemade dried tomatoes in oil, locally baked breads, small bowls of salsas and antipasti, olives, cheeses with honey and baby greens on a wooden trencher were tasty. As in many trattorias, there is no menu, there will be a featured main dish, some sort of noodle dish, and seasonal vegetable bought at the Farmer's Market or from local gardens. The decor reflects years of collecting paintings and some photographs, which in itself is a trip in history.
The local economy has been poor the past few years, but this locale has survived.
