Hello, San Francisco 'hound here, will be spending 1-2 weeks in Italy in mid-May. A few questions. (Yes, I am aware of the search function. I have used the search function and read its results!)

We'll be at the Tuscany/Umbria/Marche border basically, at San Giustino. Your typical family getaway renting a country house.

Question 1: Are the market days listed on generally trustworthy, as far as folks know? I would love to have an idea of the weekly market schedule for the surrounding area in advance.

2: Any agriturismi or restaurant recommendations in the area? (Sansepolcro, Citta di Castello, etc.) I see a lot of exciting mentions here, over the spine into Le Marche, but that may be too far afield for our party with a kid. (Although 2 of us are leaving via Ancona, so may utilitize those recommendations then.) I don't see anything mentioned yet on chowhound in our near vicinity, although I see a lot on tripadvisor. But I'd rather have info here on chowhound, of course, if there's any to dredge up.

3: In particular on tripadvisor, this place has some interesting and funny reviews: Ristorante da Vasco, Has anyone been there, by chance? They had me at house-made grappa.
