Restaurants in Tuscany/Umbria

I am in agreement, rrems. A number of years ago we visited the charming little town of Todi and ate in that very same terrace restaurant with a view. I enjoyed the Panzanella. In that same square is a delightful art museum.

November trip to Tuscany & Umbria: what's in season? Regional specialties?

In Tuscany this time of year , of course, truffles are in season, but for those watching their pennies, they are perhaps not the direction to take. I certainly recommend you try Cinghiale (wild boar) in umido and coniglio (rabbit served in a variety of ways), as they are Tuscan specialties and worth trying.If you get to Orvieto, which I highly recommend, as a delightful little hill town famous for its wonderful white wine, do look for the restaurant in the cave, a hidden gem full of delicious food.

Bucatini all'Amatriciana alla Robert Sietsema

I'd kind of side with mbfant. As I read the recipe, it didn't impress me as Amaticiana.
