La Trattoria In Pissignano

On our trip out to visit the Fonti del Clitunno last Sunday we went for lunch at La Trattoria, a restaurant on the opposite side of the road to the natural springs. We had first eaten here on a trip to Pissignano Antiques Market and a visit to the springs seemed like a good excuse to go back.

Delicious Antipasti

It was a sunny day in late March and we booked a table outside on the terrace at the front. To start we ordered a couple of antipasti to share between five people, this came in three servings staggered over about 15 minutes and comprised appertisers of  meats, cheeses, olives (flavoured with orange zest), small fried fish, frittata with asparagus and fried battered zucchini flowers filled with mozzarella.

What Else Did We Eat?

I had pasta with artisan ricotta and truffles from the primi menu, it was delicious, I didn’t try anyone else’s but they all raved about their choices. For the meat course I had a homemade hamburger, I think the best I’ve ever eaten, and others chose liver and salad. If you are in the area and it is a nice day I can definitely recommend eating here.
