The quintessential ‘Hidden Gem’
We recently found this pure gem, and it is one of the Best. It is an Agriturismo called La Fontana and is in a tiny town in the mountains called Macerino, about a 20-minute drive from Acquasparta, past Portaria, a bit of a hike but well worth it. They have no menu, you must book, arrive and EAT.
We are avid cooks and lovers of Italian food, I can honestly say that the food here is the best traditional rustic Umbrian food we have had, and we have tried lots! We advise to go Hungry, and expect to be there for about 4 hours! You will be served multiple antipasto dishes, multiple pasta dishes, multiple meat dishes, vegetables, salads, multiple deserts, wines, water, coffee and liquors.
All food is prepared with local produce, their speciality is truffles, and by God, they know how to use them, in pasta and antipasto. The truffle crostini and frittata are exceptional. It is a set price per person; I don’t know how they do it but it is only €25.00 (at the time of writing) a head. If you want to experience the best in rustic Umbrian fare I urge you to give it a try. We are not the only ones who think so, there is a picture of Sophia Loren with the owner on the wall!
