We took off this morning for Todi. Revisiting was full of nice meories of our stay there 4 years ago. We especially enjoyed the small contemporary art gallery right across from the La Scaletta restaurant.
Then we drove to Marsciano and on to San Venanzo to visit Barb and Art. Their home is really great, their town totally authentic and the lunch was fab! It was great to have home made food and especially the Zucchini Torta from the bakers blog. Thanks Barb! We loved our visit and the hospitality.
Last night we ate in Da Nana at the bottom of Corso Cavour which was recently recommended by Letizia. What a fantastic meal we had! I started with an angel hair type pasta “a la rustica” with eggplant and small tomatoes and a little dollop of wonderful buffalo ricotta while Ken had gnocchetti with a smoked goose ragu. The Ken had Faraona cooked in beer and I had pork filets with oranges and almonds. My diah was the star! We drank a Montefalco Rosso from Caprai and loved it.
Also, we discovered the Grom gelato place, new in Perugia, is about a 3 minute walk from the hotel.
So we are full agian. Overeating seems to be a permanent condition.
