view web site ›'s insider take:

The best-value gourmet meal in Umbria can be had at this former bus mechanics' workshop on the outskirts of Città di Castello, now restored as a colorful, jazzy dining room. Chef Marco Bistarelli is president of the Italian chapter of Jeunes Restaurateurs d'Europe, and his approach strikes a nice balance between loyalty to regional products and openness to innovative techniques and flavors. His frequently changing menu might include risotto with braised local onions, marinated duck liver, and a dark chocolate sauce, or a starter of roasted scallops with passion fruit sauce and tomato confit. Occasionally Bistarelli juggles one too many taste sensations, but most of the time his dishes are memorable and flavorful. His wife, Barbara, is a friendly, attentive front-of-house presence. Homemade bread, an excellent, well-priced wine list, and fine desserts seal the deal, and the final bill is a pleasant surprise (around $75 per person without wine).

No lunch on Saturdays. Closed Mondays year-round, and Sunday nights October through March. Closed late January and early February.
