Description: Il Posto delle More restaurant proposes the popular Umbrian Cuisine. We make hand made pasta daily, like tagliatelle, gnocchi and umbricelli. Our dishes are made with products coming from our fields and from our semi-wild rearing of cattle, sheep, goats and pigs. We also produce ricotta and pecorino cheese, extra virgin olive oil, blackberry vinegar, fruit jams and preserves of tomatoes.

The plan for the evening was dinner at the sagra (a village festival with food and local traditions) at Rotecastello. Arriving there along the scenic road from Fratta Todina, alas the sagra was finished. Travelling along the road on a dark night, we happened upon Il posto delle more (Blackberry place :-). We couldn't enjoy the view from the nice outdoor terrace but the food was quality Umbrian cooking, the people were friendly and service was quick. A party of five with wine, first and second plates, no desserts was €100. No pretensions, worth a stop.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

We have done many, many trips through Italy in the last 15 years. We know the standards in restaurants and agriturismi in the region very will and we are patient guests, but the visit at Il Posto delle More was a real disappointment, since the place was a recommendation from several sides.
To start with the positive: the location is very nice, great view, pleasant atmosphere. The owner (?) were really friendly and have done their best. But kitchen starts at 08.00 pm and it took 20 minutes to receive something to drink, although the restarant was empty when we arrived. 
The size of the menu is fair. Several dishes were marked as non-available – what could be seen ok. But even when we tried to order from the “remaining ones” – some were not available.

The price level is generally ok, with one exception. I found on the menu a “Tortino al cioccolato” for 8 Euro. So I was curious what could be behind that value. It was the usual Chocolate-Mini-Cupcake, served with - nothing and that for 8 (eight!) Euro. If you visit that place don´t miss it – i have never seen such a bad relation between price and received value!
That there was a private (?) pool party in parallel with a lot of noise, was for sure bad luck, but not necessary at a place with is anyhow only open for the half of the week.
Maybe this was an untypical evening at Il Postp delle More, but sorry, for sure we will not try a second time!

Grazie per la vostra recensione e ci dispiace molto che per voi non sia stata una buona esperienza. Ci teniamo comunque a puntualizzare alcuni dettagli.
L'orario di apertura del ristorante è alle ore 20, e se i clientii arrivano in anticipo possono comunque accomodarsi nella nostra terrazza e magari godersi un aperitivo, ma non essere serviti nella sala ristorante, causa preparazioni per la serata.Ci scusiamo comunque per la vostra attesa e sicuramente il vostro commento sarà utile per migliorare in questo aspetto. La nostra è una struttura immersa nel verde ed in una zona tranquilla ma ci piace comunque dar vita a questo posto e offrire ai nostri clienti la possibilità di godersi cene a bordo piscina.
Purtroppo il nostro livello di inglese non è eccellente e a volte può causare incomprensioni, quindi con i clienti stranieri preferiamo portare il menù (tradotto in lingua) anche se è un menù a rotazione. Il tortino al cioccolato è un dolce raffinato e semplicissimo ma che necessita di un'attenta preparazione lunga almeno 20 minuti per poterlo servire con il cuore ancora caldo e fondente. Viene servito da solo per gustare fino in fondo il sapore unico del cioccolato fondente.

“Great find, worth the drive”
Reviewed 16 May 2013 via mobile

Found this place through trip advisor & would definitely recommend it. We arrived as a group of four with limited Italian vocabulary & the owner was really good at translating the menu. Food was fantastic & the atmosphere was relaxing. Well worth a drive here.
