My husband and I were driving back to Perugia and stopped in Spello for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We both ordered the special - pasta with asparagus...perfetto! The owners were delightful and all in all it was a wonderful meal that we have continued to talk about.

On our stroll around Spello we met a lovely local couple Who suggested we check out his nephews restaurant. So glad we followed their recommendation! The gnocchi with the red wine sauce, a must try. Had the pannacotta for desert and their local wine. Lovely experience with a kind waitress!!!

This place, just outside the town walls, is locaties near a roundabout so the terrace outside is a bit noisy (but still okay). Food is nice, especially the pizza's. The service however was a bit weird, dishes order did not come out of the kitchen at the same time. My wife's pizza came out 10 minutes later than mine. This... More

Our Italian is limited to about 20 words and the waitress could not speak any English. However, she was friendly and patient and we ended up having a meal that our kids absolutely loved and we also really enjoyed. The antipasti was delicious, the pasta dishes great and the main meat dishes nicely cooked and well seasoned. My son was... More

On our last night in Spello we decided to try this little Osteria just outside the old walls. A strange location, perhaps, but an excellent choice. All our meals were absolutely delicious and featured local produce simply prepared and served straight from the kitchen by friendly staff. Being a non-meat eater, I was concerned that there would not be much... More

We found this restaurant pizzeria immediately as located right at one of the entrances to Spello. Being summer we ate outside where there is sufficient space to enjoy a comfortable dinner. We all had pizza which were excellent with some interesting combinations. Staff was very efficient and friendly. Good value for money.

Each time we go to the IL Vecchio Opificio Osteria we chastise ourselves for not going more often. The menu provides an excellent variety of local specials and the food is prepared and served by three generations of the family women. The carbonara with pancetta, in my wife's words, is to die for and I would have to agree. The... More

Went there with kids and grandparents, and everyone had a smashing time: the host is charming and personal, the pasta dishes exquisite (their tartufo dish a must!), and their pizzas delicious. There's ample parking in the back and a surprisingly robust wine and beer menu, too.

Went here when our first choice was full. It's just outside the main (south) gate of Spello. It looked like a casual family place and that's exactly what it was. We were certainly the only non-Italians in the place and probably the only non-locals. There were a couple of big family dinners and it was all very jolly. Good basic... More

My wife and I are fortunate to have an apartment in Spello and that has allowed us to try almost all of the many establishments. One of our favorites, a once a week destination at a minimum, is the family-run Il Vecchio Opificio Osteria Pizzeria. It is located just outside the main entrance to Spello and provides outdoor dining in... More
