La Vecchia Cucina Ristorante Enoteca
Marcellano, IT-PG 6030 Italy 742.97237
Winemakers, bankers and just plain folks show up for superb traditional Umbrian cuisine. Bruschetta is a must — with truffles, porcini mushrooms, fresh snails, lardo (exquisite thin slices of lard from Collesecco, its thin middle ribbon of meat distinct from its Tuscan rival) or whatever inspires Giovanni. Spaghetti with zucchini and guanciale with a hint of garlic. Fresh peas tossed with veal meatballs had a sauce a subtle pepperoncino kick. Excellent meat: Chianina beef is locally raised, so Fiorentina steak is a specialty; grilled pork or lamb is flavorful, too. Don’t miss the local cheese, before dinner with bread or after as dessert. Simple decor, small fireplace in one corner. Selection of wines from around Italy; excellent local red Terre di Capitani Sagrantino di Montefalco 2003.
