Restaurants in Tuscany/Umbria

letahaa | Aug 27, 2008 10:58 AM

I have been researching restaurants for a while now for our upcoming trip to Umbria and Tuscany. We will be spending 4 nights in Northern Umbria, and 10 nights in Southern Tuscany. We are interested in going to local places that specialize in traditional food and that hopefully have really great wines. This is my list so far:


Taveran Del Lupo in Gubbio
Osteria Teatro in Cortona
Taverna Del Pescatore south of Trevi
Il Tartufo in Spoleto
Il Molino in Spello
il Coccorone in Montefalco
I Capricci di Merion restaurant in Tuoro sul Trasimeno (staying here)

Southern Tuscany

Gambe di Gatto in Montepulciano
La Porta in Monticchiello
Le Logge del Vignola in Montepulciano
Il Grappolo Blu in Montalcino
La Grotta in Montepulciano
Cittino in Montepulciano
Palazzo Brandano in Petroio (staying here)
Latte di Luna in Pienza
Trattoria Da Fiorella in Pienza
Trattoria Al Vecchio Forno in San Quirico d'Orcia
Ristorante Il Fornacino in Sinalunga
Da Toto in Lucignano
Osteria del Leone in Bagno Vignoni
Conte Matto in Trequanda
Ristorante di Poggio Antico outside Montalcino (also wine tasting here)
Fattoria dei Barbi restaurant outside Montalcino (also wine tasting here)
Antica Fattoria Del Grottaione in Montenero d'Orcia
Ristorante Osteria Vechia in Cetona

There are more restaurants here than we can go to, so I need some help narrowing it down. Plus I'd love to know which ones are musts, and if I am missing anything fabulous in the area.

Thanks so much for your help!
