Description: Un viaggio tra i sapori artigianali, veri e genuini, in questo locale di Alessandro e Alessia, innamorati della buona cucina e appassionati del proprio mestiere. La linea che guida il menu è quella della cucina autentica, preparata secondo tradizione e con i giusti ingredienti. I piatti cambiano in base alla disponibilità delle materie prime. Ecco quindi che si parte con schiacciata con pomodorini rossi, zucchine, fiori di zucca, cipolla, rosmarino e salvia, melanzane e peperoni, portata a tavola ancora bollente da gustare con salame artigianale, salsicce, capocollo, prosciutto e spalletta. Il tour del gusto prosegue con tagliatelle al sugo d’oca, stringozzi con pancetta fresca di maiale, picchiarelli ai profumi dell’orto, maltagliati con il tartufo e ferretti con le fave, pecorino e guanciale o con zucchine, fiori di zucca e salsiccia. Tra i secondi imperdibili faraona, piccione e pollo girati al fuoco, agnello e coniglio al forno. Repubblica

This is a true Umbrian dining experience. The restaurant is filled with locals, there is no menu because what is served is based on what is locally grown and in season. The meal starts with a variety of crostini and bruschetta and assorted meats and cheeses. Then comes the pasta...all homemade and then an assortment of grilled meats and dessert. The food is authentic, nonna is in the kitchen and most of the staff is related. It is a warm, wonderful, tasty experience you should not miss.

This was the first time I had been to a restaurant in which you did not choose from a menu, but were served with a variety of Italian dishes ranging from breads, veges, pizza bites to pasta, meats and desserts. The cover was 25 euros per person and that included all food and drink. Drink consisted of water, wine red or white plus liqueurs. The meal was excellent, the decor charming and the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.

We had dinner here last night with two other couples. This is an agriturismo where each day dinner is prepared with locally grown vegetables, meat from the region and homemade breads and pasta. No menu--the meal is pre-determined and brought course by course, served family-style. About half of the diners were locals. All the food was outstanding! We were served several types of crostini/bruschetti, including some topped with tomatoes and cheese, others with potatoes, cheese and onions; prosciutto, and salami. We also had focaccia, umbrian spaghetti with tomato sauce, pork (might have been pork belly), guinea fowl, and salad. As we completed each course, we were offered seconds. Finished off with fig cake, coffee, and they offered limoncello but we cried "uncle"! The waiter spoke almost no English, but when we were trying to determine what came after the pork (guinea fowl), local diners helped. All of this, and they only charged us 25€ per person and the waiter refused a tip!! So if this was not enough, we returned about 40 minutes later because we couldn't get into the castle tower we were renting. They tried to help us locate the person representing the property, and when they didn't work, our waiter and 8 or 9 local diners, including grandparents, parents and a 3-year-old boy followed us back to the lodging and tried to work the key. When this failed, the waiter and another scaled the walls, trying to see if they could get into one of the windows. Okay, nothing worked, so we returned to the restaurant, also a B & B, and were offered rooms for just 50€ for the night.

My partner and I booked a table for sunday lunch. We had no idea what the food would be as there were no menu's online or in the restaurant. We arrived an hour early (miscommunication on the phone!) however the staff were extremely polite and attentive. We were offered wine (red and white!) and water, all unlimited. There was sundried tomato bruschetta, onion bruschetta, a potato and tomato salad, cured meats with warm rosemary focaccia, pasta pomodoro, baked chicken and baked lamb with salad, an almond and peach cake and an espresso to finish! All of this came to only 50euros for the both of us. They even came round with second helpings of pasta and meat which was leftover which made it feel homely. Extremely delicious and hearty traditional Italian food, Would definitely recommend booking as they're very popular with the locals.

When been to Sunday lunch twice at Fontana delle Pere and have really enjoyed both times. First time a party of 5 and second time a party of 7.

It is not gourmet style food, but genuine Italien and VERY tasty and plenty of it. Produce direct from the farm and garden. The people running the place are VERY friendly and the atmosphere is great and 'homey'.

Extremely good value value at €24 which include vine (white and red) and water ad libitum plus coffe.

If I lived close by I would most definitely be a regular.

We dont speak any Italien, but you can book by e-mail. Advisable as it is very popular with the locals.

Visited the place July 2013 and 2014.
