“what a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

This restaurant was a great find. We ate there twice,out on the terrace overlooking this beautiful valley. We had pasta both times and it was delicious. The owner/chef ,Christiana came and chatted with us and was a delight.I wish I were there right now.

“Rather disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

We went in here on a very wet evening in May, having found Pinturrichio was closed, and it looked quite attractive as we entered. There was only one other table occupied and the room could have done with being a bit warmer. I opted for pasta which was a rather small portion and not very warm, though quite tasty. My companions both opted for a Burger which came accompanied only by a few salad leaves - there had been no suggestion that they needed to order anything else to go with their meals. The coffee I had was also cool.
The German couple at the other table had pizzas which looked quite thick and they seemed to be sawing away to cut them so that I got the impression they were not great either. The service was not particularly attentive especially at the end when we had trouble getting the bill. All in all a disappointing experience.

“Fabulous pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

We ate three different types of pizza at Il Trombone this evening; Buffalo, Profumata e Tartufo. All three were light, quickly prepared and delicious. The green salad had local Spello oil for dressing and the desserts made in house were not too sweet and a perfect ending.
The rooms were charming and the tables and lighting finished with an artistic simplicity.

“Wonderful views and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
