We finally made it to Cantina de' Corvi. Our friends who live here told us about it last year. So welcoming! We sat in a lovely dining room- very cosy. The owner was very kind and helpful. Again, no problem for vegetarians-my wife was happy. We split an eggplant parmesan for our appetizer. Before it arrived, we were served a complimentary appetizer that was potato, onion, cheese but had the consistency of quiche. The the eggplant which was so delicate you can taste the cheese and the eggplant- neither obscured the other. Again, I asked the owner to choose a glass of wine for me-perfetto! Bean and squash soup for my wife. I had the strangozzi spolentina amazing-perfect flavoring! Then, we had the mussels- excellent broth and flavors. Once again, we began eating before I took a photo or you would have seen the generous portion that is served. And, of course, the Tiramisu; we are on a quest to try Tiramisu wherever we go in Spoleto. This did not disappoint-delicate wafers were to be dipped in a coffee liquor; the tiramisu was heavenly light and delicious. Excellent service! Perfect atmosphere.

If you are looking for down home type, flavorful cooking this is the place for you. It is a lot of food too. The owner came to Spoleto three years ago and they offer both flavorful cooking from that area and classic Umbrian. Two of us ordered 1 pasta with seafood (abundant seafood, by the way), 1 10 hour cooked meat sauce rigatoni, and 1 order of sauted wild vegetables (turned out to be escarole). All three dishes were delicious, and we had so much food we couldn't finish it. This is a rarity for us.

We ate inside for dinner in what seemed to be a cozy, cave-like room. If you go for lunch, there is a nice outdoor seating area.

It was good, but I just can't justify giving a five star rating when the night before we had eaten at the amazing Il Tempio del Gusto.

Amazing food, prepared by a friendly chef. The restaurant has character, it is cave like, without the dark, dank feeling. The food here is wonderful, so well prepared and cooked with care. We thoroughly recommend a at least one visit here. Service friendly and just right.

Lovely location, lovely food and lovely service.

Strongly recommend visiting this restaurant and enjoying the wonderful food they have to offer. Lovely Boar Ragu loved by children and adults alike, excellent 10 hour cooked ravioli that my 7 year old daughter tried on our first visit and then drove our second visit. Lovely steak that was well hung and well aged - a little too much for my wife - but the food was all round good.

Strongly recommend.
