Osteria Vecchia da Nilo

Osteria Vecchia da Nilo in Cetona moved a few years ago from the narrow alley to a much better location at the end of the main Piazza Garibaldi #33. Osteria Vecchia is now known simply as “da Nilo” (at Nilo’s), after the owner himself. This is still the same beloved local favorite in a newly remodeled building and includes a popular bar with a wide covered outdoor area. Menu at Nilo’s has fresh seasonal and regional dishes, superb homemade pastas, it’s all delicious food and great value for money. Our last lunch there was in June 2016 and the ravioli and the lamb chops just delicious. The pici aglione had the intense garlic flavor that I crave for! Pici is the local pasta, a long hand-rolled spaghetti. Closed Tuesdays in low season only. Seating outside on the terrace at the main entry (best place for views over the piazza), and more tables al fresco around at the back of the restaurant. Inside is a classy dining room. This highly recommended restaurant can get very busy so reservations are a must, especially for the terrace during summer evenings. Tel: 0578-239-040 ($$)*
