Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions in 160 Countries.
We are proud members of Slow Food, and every year we update our “Slow Food Osterie D’Italia” selection.
Here are our favorites for 2019.
In Chiusi (high, old city also named Chiusi Chianciano), Siena province, we love La solita Zuppa.
Unfortunately this restaurant doesn’t have outside tables, and is not the best options if you travel with kids, but the food is amazing, they serve a Monthly menu specialized on soups.
This restaurant is at only 20 minutes driving from our estate.
In Magione, at less than 30 minutes driving from us, we love Rosso di sera. A must to see the best lake Trasimeno sunset. In summer bring with you a fly repellent. Never on Tuesday and on Wednesday at lunch.
In Sarteano, where on Friday morning there is a great fresh market, we love Da Gagliano, a restaurant with few tables in via Roma, 2 . To book in advance. We don’t really love to go there with kids.
In Cortona, our tradition is to lunch at Osteria del Teatro, never on Wednesday , in via Maffei, 2. If you go send a big hug to the owner from us, they are almost family for us!
In Montepulciano, the Slow food selection is Osteria dell’Acquacheta at via del Teatro 22. They have seasonal opening hours, to book in advance.
In Montalcino, Montisi, the must is Da Roberto, Taverna in Montisi. In via Umberto I, 3. It is not open from mid November to mid March.
In Perugia, we love Civico 25 at via della Viola (never on Sunday). This restaurant may not be open 2 weeks in August.
Also this restaurant is mainly an adult target. And just outside the centre, 4 km away, we love Stella, in via dei Narcisi 47,A. Check their opening hours that could change during the year.
In Todi, don’t miss Pane e vino, in via Ciuffelli, 33. Never on Wednesday.
In Spello, the best is La cantina di Spello, in via Cavour 2. To book in advance!
