Although we have been travelling to Umbria and Tuscany for the past 8 years we have only recently discovered Pappa e Ciccia, a fabulous, cosy little restaurant that is rapidly becoming our favourite table in the region.

The cooking here really stands out for quality in an area blessed with excellent restaurants. From delicious pastas to a knockout chocolate pudding. As a largely vegetarian family we have also appreciated the variety on offer - much more than the usual mushroom or tomato pasta dishes. And the contorni are also delicious - tiny fried peppers, braised red cabbage - again offering something out of the ordinary.

The staff, including the chef who can be seen working away through a serving hatch, are charming and the whole experience is a real pleasure.

Must not miss.

What's initially great about this small and cosy trattoria is the warm, friendly welcome. Then comes the delicious home made food and for regular visitors there's the bonus of a changing menu. Good too for vegetarians. Also love the fact that you can watch the cook at work!

This typical Trattoria is a gem in the heart of the city centre.
The food is traditional and modern at the same time. Recipies are original and genuine.
Service is great, you just feel at home. Courtesy and smiles welcome you from the moment you cross the door.
A must try: any kind of home made pasta, and in particular tortelli filled with potatoes.
Last but not least, whatever you do, don't skip dessert. The homemade Tiramisu is simply unique.
Suggestion: Book a table in advance, it is very likely to find it fully booked.

I have been to this restaurant 3 times and have never been disappointed; the dishes I have ordered have been delicious and the ingredients are so fresh. It is always a wonderful experience as the owners personally greet you. The prices are reasonable and it is a very quaint restaurant. I highly recommend it.

The ladies who own and run this new tiny trattoria in the centre of Citta di Castello are doing a great job. It's always packed, you must reserve (but there are only 20 seats). Interesting pasta, traditional antipasti and secondi. The menu's understandably short, but that's a virtue in this writer's opinion, although they could extend the range of fare available in the secondi. This reviewer's only criticism concerns the quality of the tagliata: twice to his knowledge it's not been as good as is available elsewhere locally. A smallish point, but if you're providing almost only beef secondi, it should be of a consistently first-class quality in the currently competitive scene in this town. The service is welcoming and terrific, and that counts for so much. I love it.
