Rome visit--easy side trips?

Jump to last reply

We will be spending at week at Albergo del Sanato in January.
(225e. for Pantheon view double). During that week we will probably take a couple of train trips to other towns where we can enjoy an excellent meal. Will probably return to Nettuno to Da Rodo for seafood. Thinking of Orvieto (truffle season) as a possibility. I have heard lots here about I Setti Consoli but cannot find much on the internet or in books. Do they have a web site? I would like to know more about this place, other than "it is one of the best places in Italy" and other than a list of dishes anyone has eaten..what is the place like...??? What is the food focus? We are interested in the best food of the region, Umbria in this case, and do not care for fancy atmosphere or fussy over-conceived food. Price is not an issue here. So..should we take the train to Orvieto for the day for lunch and if so, where would be the best place? We might also set up a winery visit, time permitting. And if not Orvieto, what are other easy train trips from Rome that would make a good January outing..Frascati? Considering Naples but it is a bit far unless we stay overnight. Anyplace closer for a taste of Campanian food? Thanks!!
