Restaurants in Montefalco (Perugia)

Castel Petroso  


Sformatino di patate.

Montefalco’s latest addition, opened November 2007, keeps up the culinary interest for authentic Umbrian food at reasonable prices. Stave off hunger with bruschetta sprinkled with olio nuovo (€3), a winter treat. Then let chef Loretana go to town. Gnocchi al Sagrantino (€7) were small and dense, with tiny pieces of radicchio and guanciale (pork cheek) spiked with Sagrantino wine, a happy blend. Pasta e ceci al profumo di castagna (€7), chickpeas with chestnut and hint of rosemary, is a must for chestnut fans. Lumache in padella (€7) is Umbria’s answer to escargot, snails sautéed with herbs. Sformatino di patate (€4) is solid comfort food, nice followed with an insalata mista (€3). A blast from the past, chocolate fondue, is back served with fresh fruit (€5), but even better were the strudel di mele (€3) with fresh apples, an almond tart, and a lovely Catalana (€4) made with excellent cream. Fine red wine choices are the Rosso di Sagrantino by Antonelli, Perticaia, or Ruggeri (€15-16), or their full-bodied Sagrantino (€26-28), then finish with a Sagrantino passito. — Judy Edelhoff

Coccorone  


Rustic openings...

Located in the heart of Umbria’s wine country, Coccorone is where you warm up with a glass of Sagrantino di Montefalco and coal-toasted bread. Start with bruschette miste or tartufo and follow with frascarelli. Found nowhere else in Italy, the pasta is made according to a curious recipe: Egg yolks are smeared over a flat pan and flour is sprinkled over. The pan is shaken violently, and the flour and egg coagulate to form oddly shaped noodles. Another house dish is pappardelle al Sagrantino, colored red with a few drops of wine. — Monica Larner

L’Alchemista  


Zuppa di Farro.

Friendly owners of this wine and olive oil “bar” offer reasonable prices and fresh recipes. Molle della Valnerina baked cheese is fragrant with saffron from Umbria, pancetta, and zucchini. Farro (spelt) soup made with Sagrantino wine is a local specialty. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner; serves hot meals in-between times, too. Desserts are all homemade and not too sweet. Excellent local wines. Closed January through March. — Judy Edelhoff

Villa Pambuffetti  


Better on top...

Thank goodness for places like this, where cocktail dresses fit in perfectly. The private villa was converted to a hotel, so settle in for some refined dining and try not to drive the sommelier as crazy as this diner did (you might want to start with a local white Grechetto before you move on to Montefalco Rosso). Fireplace by the front door. Guest chefs sit in to work wonders, but locals come for a special night out when the regular is on duty, too. Book the room on the top for more thrills. — Judy Edelhoff
