Taverna de Porta Nova, Stroncone

1 Via Porta Nuova
Italy 05039
Tel: 39 074 460 496's insider take:

The tiny, delightful walled village of Stroncone (just a few miles south of Terni, Umbria's sprawling version of Detroit) is home to this welcoming, mostly undiscovered trattoria. Just inside the door is a big fireplace for grilling meats (the house specialty), but everything here is good: the zuppa Contadina, a vegetable soup served in a scooped-out loaf of bread; the tagliatelle with broad beans and zucchini flowers; the calorific desserts. The couple that runs the place is friendly and garrulous, and since the restaurant has only five tables, dinner here generally turns into a lively communal discussion about food, politics, and life.

Dinner only. Closed Wednesdays and the first two weeks of August.
