If there was ever a town hidden away between Tuscany and Umbria that would be Citerna. What better place than a medieval hilltop town to have a magical restaurant, Le Civette, (the owls), where the food is delicious and the light-filled interior is reminiscent of a sunny farmhouse kitchen, filled with books, flowers and colorful art work.
In the summer you can sit outside in the town’s fortress’ walkway and surround yourself with medieval architecture.
Interestingly enough, Luisa and Silvia, who own the restaurant, are not so cut off from their potential clients as one would think. I was speaking with a friend about their great restaurant and she responded, “I already know all about it! I just went to Israel with a group of nuns from Citerna and they raved about it!”
Now we know: Citerna is a hub for jet setting nuns and great food!
