Umbria restaurants

It's the intimate connection between food and landscape—what the French call terroir—that makes eating and drinking in Umbria such a pleasure. The olive groves of the Valle Umbra between Assisi and Spoleto produce a wonderfully fragrant, tangy oil, and the vineyards that surround the medieval town of Montefalco yield one of Italy's most serious red wines, Sagrantino di Montefalco. The remote mountain town of Castelluccio is encircled by fields where prized lentils grow; the dense wooded hills between Spoleto and Norcia are prime truffle territory and where weekend hunters bring home pheasant, wood pigeon, and wild boar. All these ingredients and more are used in Umbrian cooking, which can be sampled in rustic trattorias or fancy white-linen establishments.
