Australian Gourmet Traveller, May 2009

“Just before I reach my destination I notice Hobo, a wine-bar-cum-bookshop. It specialises in music books, which line the floor-to-ceiling shelves. Its American-Italian owner, Francesco Accolla, is about to open a small restaurant serving fresh organic products from a farm in Umbria, in central Italy. Hobo hosts live music, TV streaming, DJ sets and book readings until late at night. “Pigneto only really wakes up around 10.30pm,” says Accolla, a night-owl.”
