We return to La Locanda Ristorante every year when we come to Umbria and our little slice of paradise, the tiny town of Arrone. Their food is consistently good and we are always welcomed warmly by Silvio and son Gabriele.
This year I brought 10 Culinary Adventurers to my favorite area ristoranti and La Locando was a definite 'must do.' Amid a variety of delicious pasta dishes... laddened with truffles or porcini... La Locanda offers a Ravioli of Nettles that is amazing. But my favorite pasta dish is their Pappardelle Cinghale Rosso. The best Cinghale Rosso in southern Umbria with its hints of juniper and rosemary... this dish takes red sauce to a new level!
Other don't miss dishes: A soft baked but still runny egg drenched in truffle with toasted bread for dipping... delicate, unctuous, sublime. And save room for the wood roasted Veal Chop with Rosemary and Lemon... tender Chianina (white) veal served on the bone with roasted potatoes that are so perfectly crisp on the outside they belie their tender, fluffy centers. For dessert ask Gabriele to make his special drink of Prosecco, Lemon Sorbetto, Limoncello and Vodka... a refreshing end to any delicious meal at La Locanda!
The Fiocchi's also offer an agriturismo with pool for travelers headed to rafting and other outdoor adventures in the Valnerina.
