Artisanal Half Board:
Al fresco eating or in the antique stable
"Che Gusto!"

Our dishes?
Delicious! (so they say..)

We don't call ourself "a Restaurant" because we are not open to locals, but we believe we could compete well with most of them in terms of flavours. :)

And there's even more..

The right atmosphere!

Tranquil, soft, detailed, reserved, informal.

To feel good at the table is not only a matter of what you eat. It's also a matter of how you feel.

The light is soft, we set up the table in a minimal way to show the wood of the tables and to maintain a countryside atmosphere. The centerpiece is of aromatic herbs, the candle resting on pebbles, the handcrafted olive wood under bottle, the cloth napkin, the rustic chairs with a comfortable cushion. 

Music is themed for every night,from the Italian singer-songwriters of the 60s to the great Italian hits of the 80s, up to the "best" English songs such as the Beatles or Elton.

We are sure that a song will evoke you a memory, an emotion, and maybe you will hum a line under your breath.


Artisanal taste!

Craftsmanship has the added value of people, we believe in it.

All the main produce you will eat come from our gardens or from the food artisans of Umbria we personally know.

Artisans are driven by Passion for their produce, they're the first to proudly eat it.This is worth more than a certification.

To network with the local economy is one of the biggest form of sustainability, and you will be part of it.

We'll do everything to tell you the artisans' stories.

Some dishes from our kitchen

Uniqueness of our half board

Ours is a cuisine which is delicious but healthy: no excesses of fat in cooking and with generous portions that reflects the quality over quantity philosophy.

The goal is to make food that tantalize your taste buds without weighing down the holiday.

Oil tasting

The extra virgin umbrian olive oils you'll taste are excellences of the region with price ranges of 30-40€ per litre.

Sous vide cooking

Slow cooking for get more nutrients and intense flavours without using too many fats. It melts in your mouth.

Home made bread

Done with long rising techniques.

Countryside flours

Rye, spelt, whole grain. We buy from a stone crushed mill.

Pesto own production

From our organic garden and veggie lab we create various pesto such as the "tomato confit" the "roasted aubergine" or "the green one".

Dessert wines (extra)

On request, you can taste the sweet wines from Umbria. Special and unique wines very rare to find around.

2023 Menu

*it can slightly change due to produce availability and season 

How does the fixed-menu work?

We have a fixed menu-of-the-day, with dishes always different.

Three courses plus the tasting of the best olive oils from Umbria:

  • EVO oil tasting of one artisanal producer
  • Pasta course
  • Main course
  • Dessert

"What if I don't like a dish?"

If you want to change a dish, you can do it the evening before for the evening after.

Special menus

A vegetable menu is available for vegetarians or vegans (with main courses based on umbrian legumes such as chickpeas, beans and lentils). It has to be request at the moment of the booking.

We manage various allergies (let us know in advance), except from gluten-free,for two reasons: gluten and wheat produce are very frequent in our menu and, since ours is a very small "restaurant" service that prepares only for overnight guests, we don't have the resources to create a personalised entire gluten-free menu.


Wine list

Wines from the land.
Made by local farmers.

This is the philosophy we propose you.

Wines from small wineries that work mainly on the grapes, rather than on the chemical techniques in the cellar.
