Enlisting the aid of our fantastic chef, Katia Costanzi, ICA provides three hearty, locally sourced meals per day that explore culinary traditions of Umbria and Italy as a whole. Enjoy the fresh produce of the traditional farms, vineyards and orchards of Umbria, the “green heart of Italy”. Students, faculty and staff dine together and exchange experiences in our fourteenth century refectory or rooftop terrace overlooking the Tiber river valley. Many of our residents report after their stay that the dining alone - fresh, homemade, traditional meals three times per day - is worth the trip.
Both lunch and dinner consist of typical Umbrian fare, and include: an antipasto, a pasta course, a second course with meat or fish, a course of vegetables, salad, and desert. Breakfast includes fresh baked bread, cake and pastries made at ICA by Chef Katia and her staff. We are capable of accommodating dietary preferences and restrictions for all guests, as well as meals for children. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are available.
Every day, 1:00pm (except for excursion days)
Traditional Umbrian Lunch: Pasta course, main course, vegetable/legume course, salad, fresh fruit and wine
