“Wonderful views and good food”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

On a stiflingly hot day, we sat on the broad terrace overlooking the peaceful Umbrian countryside, dotted with rolls of hay, and enjoyed a selection of delicious appetisers for lunch - simple but flavoursome. The heat prevented us from wanting to eat much so, the appetisers and one main dish (plus LOTS of water) was sufficient for the three of us and the friendly waitress was very happy to allow us to just sit and enjoy our simple meal. Very pleasant.

“Not good enough”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 via mobile

Food and service were disappointing. There are lots of restaurants in spello that are much better. They have a beautiful view of the hills around spello. However they don't deliver on the food quality. Maybe the pizza is a better option?

“Best food, pizza and view ever!”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

We entered this restaurant by chance walking around randomly the small streets in Spello.
The place inside is wonderful (the toilet itself worth a look) and the terrace has a terrific view.
We tried both pizza, made with natural yeast, and local food. Everything was really testy. They were fast and nice. A place to visit again!

“Great lunch in a stunning setting”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Terrace overlooks the Umbrian hills. Food is typical of the area with several specialities. Very friendly staff who were happy to help with translating when we needed it. Several chefs specials daily, the rigatoni with tomato and bacon was so tasty. Great service too, we will definitely be back.
