It was unfortunate that despite having reasonable food this restaurant was the most chaotic and couldn't care less service we have ever experienced. It was not that busy however we had to constantly prompt staff for a drink, cutlery, the bill,etc. We expect at times in Italy that you will wait but this was in a league of its own.... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel and we enjoyed an excellent meal here. The menu was full of local specialities which we enjoyed very much, especially the Norcia ham starter. The waitress could have been a bit friendlier when we arrived but she got better later. Would definitely return here.

Recommended by our hotel. Seems to be popular with the locals, it was packed. Tagliatelle with speck was excellent (true "primo sized" I'd recommend also a secondo). Eggplant was nice, lovely presentation for the trout. Not cheap, but not overpriced. Was a nice place to sit and watch the piazza as we were introduced to Spoleto.

Sat outside on the heated terrace, perfect setting for lunch time. Service painfully slow due to bank holiday. Compact menu of Umbrian food all sourced very locally. Lovely pasta and great lentil soup.

We were a bit rushed for time and settled on this restaurant even though it was packed on a Sunday lunch. Spoleto is quite a tourist attraction,deservedly so even before all the episodes of a famous TV series,but the tagliatelli with truffles definitely suffered in comparison with what we had eaten in Gubbio just the day before.

Very tasty dinner here the week before last, they even baked me a gluten-free roll (which sometimes happens in Spain, but it has never happened to me in Italy before). They were also happy to adapt recipes to help me avoid lactose. I found it on a list produced by the Associazione italiana della celiachia.

Whilst wandering around the beautiful city of Spoleto on Saturday night we came across this restaurant with tables al fresco on a little square and decided to give it a whirl. We were not disappointed. The food, service, ambience and overall presentation were all lovely. My husband had the Norcia Ham and fritelle - Deep fried pastry/bread served hot to... More

Don't miss if eating in Spoleto. This is fine Italian food served in the covered terrace in the Piazza. It is cooked without self consciousness with an attractive but simple presentation where the taste exceeds the initial high expectation. The food is based on local Spoleto cuisine. It was a joy when we tripped over it for lunch. It was... More

A high tripadvisor ranking, let's try... The waiter was quite helpful. We shared our piatti and got everything served in seperate (half) portions, super! The antipasti was a Fondue of truffel. The truffel piece had no taste, the cheese was also quite tasteless. The primi piatti was a pasta with truffel, we ordered a pasta with tomato. When we received... More
