Hello there, Alex here – again.
During my recent visit in gorgeous Umbria, we stopped off for lunch at Agriturismo Il Mandoleto – a farm with apartments and a restaurant near Perugia. It was hands down one of the best meals I’ve ever had.
We were greeted in a winter garden where we had appetizers: prosecco, anchovie sandwiches, prosciutto ham and pecorino cheese. Oh, the cheese…
At this Umbria agriturismo they grow their own vegetables and make their own pasta – which was delicious, by the way, and the portion just the right size.
Sadly for you, I was enjoying my food so much I forgot the cardinal rule of food blogging: Photograph EVERYTHING you eat! I can, however, show you a picture of the spread that awaited us when we arrived:
… and the adorable carver:
We were meant to tour of the estate, but because of the rain this was cancelled. I was a bit sad; it would have been fun to amble about the vegetable garden and seen some pasta making. All in all though, it was a truly delicious meal, the staff was extremely friendly, the surroundings beautiful – in short, a delightful experience. I’m using tons of adjectives on purpose here, because this place was just that good!
A big thumbs up for Agriturismo Il Mandoleto!
Disclosure: I was in Umbria as a guest of the Umbria Regional Tourism Board. However, as always, all thoughts and words are mine, all mine.
