Mangiare bene in Benevento

Nunzia (Intermediate A), 152 Via Annunziato (a cobbled back street that runs parallel to the main shopping promenade), Tel. 0824 29431. GEM ALERT!

This is a fantastic place. Nunzia is the wonderful old lady who runs it, she’s very friendly and helpful. To start the marinaded sardines are delicious. For a primi try the Scarpariello (square spaghetti with mozarella, tomatoes and basil) or the Cavatelli with cherry tomatoes and parsley. For a secondo the veal is good or the baby squid with cherry tomatoes and parsley. A great red is Aglianico del Taburno, and a good white, Fiano d’Avellino. To finish, macedonia with wild strawberries and a Passito wine or vanilla icecream soaked with Strega, the famous local herbal liquer. Back in 2005, three courses with wine cost me about 20 euro here, an absolute steal. Long may Nunzia reign.
