We stopped in at this tiny restaurant thinking we would try some wines and have some anitpasti. When we saw that there was more on the menu we decided to stay for dinner. So glad we did! I had the best meatballs and sauce of our whole trip and I tried more expensive versions in other restaurants in Spello. The... More

We ate here two out of three nights in Spello. Need I say more? Excellent food and wine, served well and in a friendly way. Reasonably priced. You must go here! You will not be disappointed.

We stopped in here for dinner on a Tuesday evening encouraged by the promise of the vast wine selection. Alas, the owner dismissively pointed us in the direction of a table in the charming restaurant. I didn't mind that it was in the entrance area. Our presence seemed to be a bother as the owner silently reached over across our... More

We had a lovely meal at Drinkingwine. The good was delicious, especially the Bresaola antipasti. The service has a little slow (even for Italy) and we did feel a little forgotten at times. But overall highly recommended!

The City of Spello is renovating its streets and, simultaneously, upgrading the infrastructure. While this beautification project will be a benefit to all in the long term, it has caused disruption and loss of business to many merchants in the process. Maurizio's Drinking Wine Restaurant on Garibaldi is a prime example. His entrance has been blocked by trucks, his outside... More

At first, we couldnt find this place. The storefront on the street literally is a small wine shop/tasting room, so we were a bit confused. After walking by a few times, we entered and the owners warmly greeted us, walked us through to the back where there was a really cool dining area off to the side. Like the town... More

We both had roast lamb but I must admit I felt like they were pieces left over from the butcher as I didn't recognise the cuts at all! Very poor. However, the wine was very good but this is to be expected from the name of the restaurant and also being surrounded by numerous bottles and stacked cases - a... More

This restaurant does not look like a restaurant from the outside - it looks like a wine store. It's not until you notice a few tables that you realize it's a restaurant. Because it's so small, we made reservations for dinner (four of us). The seating was tight, but because of the decor you didn't feel too claustrophobic. It did... More
