If you decide to day trip up to Civita di Bagnoregio, there are a couple of restaurants/trattorias/pizzerias there catering to tourists, but you can do just as well, if not better, in nearby Bagnoregio proper and save a few euro (about $1.30 ea.).

Recommended is Ristorante Il Fumatore at 5 Piazza Marconi (t. 0791-792642). This is probably the best place to sample the local cuisine at reasonable prices.

Great house wines of local red and white straight from the barrel. The antipasti plates are large and filled with locally made cold cuts and cheeses. If it’s cold outside be sure and order the hearty and filling homemade zuppa di fagioli (bean soup, with pasta or homemade croutons). And, leave room for dessert and ask for the “to die for” homemade Monte Bianco Modo Mio (White Mountain My Way).

Price per person for first (or antipasto), second, dessert, wine, water and espresso approximately 20 euros.

Buon appetito!
