One of the best restaurants in Montefalco, Umbria
“All that glitters is not gold”, but Locanda del Teatro is surely an exception! In Montefalco’s lovely Piazza del Comune, there isn’t just the beauty of the piazza to enjoy. Wait until you enter Locanda del Teatro in the five-star hotel Palazzo Bontadosi to embark on a culinary journey.
From spring to autumn, dine in the beautiful terrace of Locanda del Teatro, a terrace that overlooks the valleys, the vineyards and the landscape of the Umbrian countryside. A place where you can relax, enjoy a glass of prosecco and order delicacies that will literally make you book your table for the next evening. I know we did!
While during winter, snuggle up in the contemporary indoor dining area and enjoy delicious wine and food in a romantic setting accompanied by music from the harp.
The moment you step into Locanda del Teatro, you will be greeted by a professional and friendly staff who will definitely contribute to a wonderful dining experience. During the good season, arrive at 8pm to admire the sky change into pinkish shades of colors. The atmosphere is spectacular, intimate and elegant yet relaxed at the same time.
If you want to dine in a romantic setting with the beauty of nature right before you, you’ve hit the jackpot! And it’s not only the atmosphere that will make you want to come back to Locanda del Teatro, it’s also the food!
The menu changes according to the season, so always expect something new. But if you happen to read tuna tartare with lime and ginger on the menu you MUST order it, it’s sensational. While if you’re a truffle lover, I suggest you start out with the poached egg served on parmesan zabaglione with fine black truffle flakes, you’ll just want more and MORE!
As a first course, the buffalo ricotta ravioli with asparagus sauce are wonderful, while for a second course I cannot recommend enough the fried rabbit with soft lemon sauce and thyme, truly a triumph of tastes. And if you like tuna, Locanda del Teatro makes a killer tuna fish crusted with pistachio and ginger sauce!
But before you make up your mind, make sure to have heard the specials of the day! The way the head waiter passionately describes each dish is enchanting, and really gets your appetite going! And of course, when in Umbria you cannot miss out on an Umbrian wine!
The whole experience at Locanda del Teatro is first-class, and the waiting staff does a fantastic job to create an elegant yet friendly atmosphere. Don’t forget to make a reservation.
