Il Bacco Felice and its incredible Oste (Foligno, Umbria)
Today I am going to tell you about another place that you cannot leave out at all in a visit to Umbria (region situated next to Tuscany). What I have in mind is the osteria “Il Bacco Felice” in the enchanting town of Foligno , a few kilometres from the capital, Perugia.
Salvatore, the owner, soul and heart of this restaurant, is quite a character who passionately devotes himself to his work and prepares by hand most of the dishes that can be eaten in his spectacular eatery. As in all best restaurants Salvatore has no fixed menu but he keeps changing it daily depending on the seasonal products he has managed to get. What is a certain in his cuisine, and you have to savour inevitably, is the exquisite ham made from pork that Salvatore breeds in his farm.
Salvatore is also a wine worshipper and you will always see him walking around his restaurant with a glass of wine in his hand. I think Salvatore easily drinks a bottle of wine a night.
Besides Salvatore is a really singular character, of great charisma and personality, that will certainly come to your table to chat...but watch out!! do not refuse to try any of his dishes, otherwise Il Bacco Felice will stop smiling at you.
Il Bacco Felice is a small Osteria, therefore I recommend that you book, especially if you want to dine in this place full of happiness and good food at the weekend.
Besides this osteria, Foligno is an enchanting town deserving a visit where it is also possible to go shopping as there are loads of clothes shops.
