This is a lovely restaurant up the hill from Piazza della Republica. We had a lovely waiter, who spoke no English and put up with my limited Italian. The wine list was daunting, so I asked him to select a typical Umbrian wine for under 20 euros. He came through with a delightful merlot nero that complimented our entrees of cinghiale and tagliatelle with porcini. The bruschetta sampler starter featured good local olive oil on 2, tapenade on another, and a 4th with tomatoes and olive oil. The letdown was in the contorni. Broccoli was cooked to almost mush and expensive at 5 euros for a small plate. The eggplant parmesan was tasty and a good value, but cold in spots. Il Pinturicchio redeemed itself with a fantastic dessert: millefoglie with a custard sauce, studded with shocolate chips. We dined well for 75 euros including the wine.
