After a lazy afternoon at Il Castagno, we decided to dine in the nearby town of Ossaia. Rather than driving, we walked the easy 2km on a perfect spring evening.
The countryside was peaceful, scattered with gorgeous rustic farmhouses.
Ossaia literally means boneyard. There are apparently thousands of Roman soldiers who were defeated by Hannibal in 217BC at the Battle of Trasimeno, buried under the town.
The small community was enchanting, with some beautiful homes.
I’m not sure about this driveway, though.
La Tufa had been recommended to us and we found it easily.
We wandered through
to the inviting restaurant
but on this warm night we opted for a table outside.
The pizzas were delicious
and we had just enough room for nonna tart and flaming crème brulee.
The walk home was a little slower.
