Montefalco, IT-PG 6036 Italy 0762.379.817
Montefalco’s latest addition, opened November 2007, keeps up the culinary interest for authentic Umbrian food at reasonable prices. Stave off hunger with bruschetta sprinkled with olio nuovo (€3), a winter treat. Then let chef Loretana go to town. Gnocchi al Sagrantino (€7) were small and dense, with tiny pieces of radicchio and guanciale (pork cheek) spiked with Sagrantino wine, a happy blend. Pasta e ceci al profumo di castagna (€7), chickpeas with chestnut and hint of rosemary, is a must for chestnut fans. Lumache in padella (€7) is Umbria’s answer to escargot, snails sautéed with herbs. Sformatino di patate (€4) is solid comfort food, nice followed with an insalata mista (€3). A blast from the past, chocolate fondue, is back served with fresh fruit (€5), but even better were the strudel di mele (€3) with fresh apples, an almond tart, and a lovely Catalana (€4) made with excellent cream. Fine red wine choices are the Rosso di Sagrantino by Antonelli, Perticaia, or Ruggeri (€15-16), or their full-bodied Sagrantino (€26-28), then finish with a Sagrantino passito.
