Ristorante Granaro del Monte dal 1850
of Carlo Bianconi
Norcia sounds a bit threatening to gourmets: cold cuts and cheese, mushroom and truffle, spelt and lentils from the Apennines, homemade pasta and meat of any kind, trout, game, and wild boar… To get to Norcia from Spoleto drive up the picturesque Nera Valley, hometown of St. Benedict with the Sibillini Mountains on the background. This restaurant and hotel located downtown – that is within the walls - in a 16th century building is full of atmosphere. It is a golden opportunity to taste the best meals.
