Tel: 39 075 837 771's insider take:

Just south of Lake Trasimeno is the postcard-perfect walled hill town of Panicale, home to this small, utterly charming trattoria. There's a touch of the boudoir about the candles and painted lightbulbs, and the rather florid menu descriptions (in Italian and English) teeter on the brink of pretension. But the food, when it comes, is excellent. The dishes here are true to their territorial roots, focusing on meat and game (grouse, wild boar, wood pigeon) and—from autumn to spring—lashings of truffle. In summer, book ahead for one of the four tables on the tiny outdoor terrace.

Closed Mondays, January, and February.
