Outstanding in Umbria

L'Antico Forziere is in Casalina just south of Deruta. It is a small inn in a renovated farmhouse with a wonderful restaurant. We had dinner there 2 nights in a row, both excellent. The food is inspired, a mix of regional Umbrian with a a sophisticated flare. Pumpkin ravioli were great, gnocchi also. The lamb chops stuffed with lardo and herbs also excellent. There is an amazing chocolate trio dessert which, trust me, is more than adequate for 2 people. The wine list has many regional wines, such as from Montefalco, and a large selection of other Italian wines also. Service is professional. It is out of the way, but if you are anywhere in that part of Umbria I highly recommend this place, some of the best meals we had during a 3 week stay in Italy.
