During our past trips, we attempted once to eat here but it was booked out. This time my brother organised a family catch up and when he told us it was by Giancarlo it became more interesting. The restaurant was packed; our group of 14 adults and one child was seated at the end of one room and though our big number everyone of us could pick an entree out of 7, a main out of 8 and a dessert out of 6. My partner and I chose strangozzi with tomato and sanguinosi mushrooms, tortellini panna e tartufo, straccetti with rucola and balsamico, stew of tripe in a light tomato sauce (the best ever had), crescionda and zuppa inglese (trifle). Our young relative wanted a more simple pasta and there was no trouble. It looks like they serve the customers like 45 years ago; no written menu, the wines in the 1,75 litre bottle and unpretentious glasses but still on fabric tablecloth and with proper napkins. The venue deserves a note also for the Due Mondi Festival framed posters (the entire collection since 1958) and the unbelievable vintage postcards of Spoleto, a rarity missing in the town's museums.
