For those of you who already know and love Simone Proietti-Pesci, for those who have had an opportunity to meet him in Cannara, Bevagna, Washington, DC or across the U.S, and for those who will meet him on his annual trip in January: his restaurant – le Delizie del Borgo – is having a grand re–opening this weekend!
Le Delizie del Borgo is one of our favorite restaurants in Umbria and is always our first stop when we drive to Cannara after landing in Rome. Located in a quiet public park just outside the city walls of Bevagna and just pochi passi from his old location, the new Delizie del Borgo is a perfect mix of indoor air conditioned seating and outdoor seating in the park.
Simone and partner Ombretta always use the freshest seasonal ingredients to create dishes that are both traditional and new. Look for porcini mushrooms, wild asparagus, foraged herbs, fresh truffles and pasta made fresh daily. And be sure to tell Simone that you’re friends of Via Umbria!
