Always a treat to dine here. Friendly staff, collegial atmosphere. Food is top notch (if a bit salty sometimes). Wine list is impeccable. Deserts, delicious and perfect.

La Cantina was recommended to us. It is easy to find, on the main street just south of the main square. The food was excellent and fine. We could not get in the first night without a reservation, but were accommodated for lunch the next day without reservation. The ambience is appealing, but more formal than most restaurants. We also... More

Loved the atmosphere and food. At first they were quite rushed and rude but things calmed down and we had a lovely time. The food and wine was excellent. We enjoyed pigeon pate, beef tartare, wild boar pappardelle. The local wine was fabulous and so inexpensive. Total bill for 8 people was €238.

I think this is the "fanciest" place in Spello to go out dining. The interior is very nice and the kitchen makes use of what the surrounding nature has to offer.The chef keeps it simple and pure, but in some cases all it takes is a perfect little omelet with fresh truffle to get you to culinary heaven. Nice wine... More

The ambience looked great as I walked past La Cantina so I chose it as my lunch spot. I tried the lamb liver (I think) as an appetizer and I am so glad I did because it was unique, fresh, and incredible tasting. Anyway, what impressed me most was that while the waitresses were practical, and not outwardly friendly, at... More

The restaurant is very beautiful and unique with a great atmosphere. We were there with our friends and kids. The staff was super helpful as we don't speak nor read Italian. The food was very good - we had grilled lamb, which was the best I ever had, lamb with artichokes, gnocchi with truffle, penne pomodoro, and ravioli. For dessert... More

Spello is worth a stop for its narrow historic streets and passageways and you get a good feel for the town by parking below (required) and walking up to the Cantina in the town center. The restaurant interior is very atmospheric, the kind of place everyone traveling to Italy dreams of finding. Rustic and charming. Food to match. We had... More

We had a great meal with family and friends. Food was very good, arrived quickly and if good portion size. However, there are not too many restaurants that can actually deliver all the food all at once...this unfortunately fell into the majority.

We're recomended to visit La Cantina, and were more than pleased with the visit. Good, fresh local products for a reasonable price. Burrata as a starter was a hit. Pasta tartufo + various grill for main were both great, home made dessert to end a great meal. Good service and an amaro on the house Can't ask for more.

I go to Italy almost every month for both work and pleasure, I absolutely love it. I absolutely love Spello, probably my favourite town in Umbria, and have been a few times over the last 12 months, each time eating at La Cantina di Spello. Without a doubt, this is some of the best food you will eat in Italy.... More
