Wordless Wednesday: Foodies Rush In Where Angels Fear To Tread!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

Our concierge directed us to this restaurant on the square as one of her favorites, Osteria Il Gallo, in Panicale, Umbria.  Of course we used Siri as our guide, and she kept insisting that the place was on our left.  On our left was the city wall.

We parked and asked the gentleman who parked behind us, and he told us to follow him.  We walked up to the square and there it was!  Had this restaurant been in Santa Barbara or any other city in the United States, we would have run the other way.  Once again, we had a wonderful lunch Umbrian style!

 

Happy Wednesday!

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in less than 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

I remember we found a similar looking place in Paris once, at the end of a square, where the food was great, but from the outside, left something to be desired. They are usually the best places.

Looks absolutely fabulous to me.  Tana and I are headed to Italy in April.  Friends are renting a villa for a month in Umbria so while we are there we will most likely give Osteria Il Gallo a try....  and take a picture of the food for Michael J.

I've never heard of Panicale.  Perhaps when I'm ready to move on from Tuscany, I'll spend some time in Umbria -- although Le  Marche has been on my list for a while.  So much Italy, so little time!

Alexandra, I suspect the food was excellent and the outside appearance of this restaurant fits in very well in Italy.. US not so much as you said.

Wow! This is a trip that would require a lot of walking. Glad you enjoyed the lunch, the rustic curb appeal does need a little refreshing however!
