If you feel like taking a drive over to Montefalco (about a 50 minute trip) then make sure you have lunch at l’Alchimista. Read all about it on my blog, here.
One of the oldest restaurants in Todi. In the winter sit next to a wood burning fire, or in the summer on their breathtaking terrace. Read more about it here.

Everyone loves the dishes at Pergolaccio. I bought most of them in Deruta, from a company called Sberna. They are my favorite in town, since they are all hand painted, but still affordable. For a full report, visit my blog.
