Sala dei Banchetti
Typical Umbrian cuisine
Rich in suggestions closely related to the Umbrian culinary tradition, the menu of the restaurant of Località Licina 11 is able to amaze every palate with intense flavours and aromas, referring to traditional cuisine.
Cucina Umbra is rich in specialties including strangozzi with black truffle, umbrichelli in Trasimeno sauce with perch fillet, shallots, garlic and chilli, or spaghetti with rancetto based on pancetta, cherry tomatoes and fresh pecorino. And no less important are pappardelle with hare, pancetta and cloves.
Another dish of the area is the ciriole alla ternana, a specialty consisting of a mixture of water and flour seasoned with garlic, oil and chilli sauce similar to the Spoleto and Narnesi strangozzi; whilst talking about soups and one stands out with chickpeas and chestnuts.
When it comes to Umbria, then, one cannot avoid talking about meat, the undisputed ingredient for our second courses: cooked both on the spit and on the grill and flavoured with all kinds of aromas.
Finally, it is worth mentioning wild game, such as the pigeon, also called “palomba”, which is typical of the Terni area, or the famous, “drunken hen” which is part of the Orvieto tradition (rich in wine-based preparation).
