We've dined there twice while travelling in the area (lunch and dinner). On both occasions we chose the set menu which is massive! It's amazing how much quality food you can get for 30eur (even including a drink with your coffee). This place is a must to visit if you're in the area, just make sure that you book in advance, as it tends to get very busy.

If you are in the area of ​​Preci that was brutally struck by the earthquake, go here. You do not expect this quality of food in a semi-hidden chalet. Basic, fairly priced, good service and immensely popular with local people. That says it all .

When I want something absolutely special I am going there. Delicious food and the earthquake is forgotten.

It's a while since I wrote up Il Castoro but this time can do so from a different angle. Some years ago my wife and I called in hungry and tired (after a 3 hour drive from Rome airport) and we really fancied a late supper. It was 23.00 and we wondered if they would serve us. They did, we were never made to feel rushed, and heavily persuaded to have a coffee and digestivo after dinner.

We had a similar situation last night after picking 2 friends up from Perugia airport. We knew we could get a great meal close to home even though it was nearly 23.00 (again). Of course we were made very welcome and never rushed even though by the time we finished the hard working staff were having their own supper.

Our friends thought it was the best pizza they have ever had. And of course digestivi were mandatory!

Great food and first class old-fashioned service. What is there not to like?

If you like truffles you will find yourself in heaven!
Don't expect silver service in this rustic local restaurant but be prepared for a feast of excellent local rustic food at a very reasonable price. This place is very popular with the locals so booking is recommended (and necessary for weekends and all of the summer) friendly staff (only speak Italian but the menu is multi lingual) selling local Umbrian food.
This place specialises in the local truffles and wild boar for which the region is famous so you can have truffles on anything. highly recommended is their truffle tasting menu (30 Euro) wild boar cured meats, truffle past, two types of pasta with truffles, truffle omelette (fantastic), three types of cooked meat, and desert! sounds a lot, and it is so don't be in a hurry - just enjoy!
