Duccio Ugolini is in the kitchen, and his wife Miriam Manni runs this large, one-room trattoria, which has a grand view of beautiful woods and ski slopes. In the middle of the room is a fireplace, which casts a lovely glow in cooler months. Local ingredients like mushrooms and chestnuts take center stage here. The chef has a deft touch with mushrooms; his insalatina di porcini e grana (salad of raw, shaved porcini and cheese) is delicate; his flan di finferli
e crema di tartufo (an eggy dish with fine, thin mushrooms), sublime. Sommeliers abound in the couple's extended family, and it shows in the exquisite wine list.
