Umbria, and especially Norcia are foodies heaven. Almost every traditional restaurant cooks delicious food with home made pasta, truffles, great olive oil, lentils and of course - cured pork meat. It's a bit difficult to find creative restaurants, taking all these great products and cooking traditions and giving them an innovative modern twist. restaurants like Vespasia. The dinner I had...

We dined here with friends as part of our half board rate while staying at be hotel. We were all blown away with the whole dining experience. Our choice was either a 4 course menu or a choice of 3 courses from the a la carte. We chose the second option and each chose an appetiser, primo and secondi. Before... More

As we have stayed in hotels of Relais & chateaux, I know their restaurants are good as well. We choose the five course tasting menu for 120 euro. It was no problem to have some courses adjusted due to personal preferences. This flexibility was highly appreciated. The first course was cod fish with green beans, an excellent combination. The second... More

Finding the restaurant was easy as it was attached to our Hotel (Pallazo Seneca). If you enter the restaurant from the street (not inside the hotel) the walkway is very beautiful. The seating area did not have any scenic view of the mountains or the town (Norcia) but it did have a beautiful garden where guests could be seated. Very... More

Ok Norcia is all about pork, but if you're tired of all that filling salty stuff and want to get a little upscale go to Palazzo Seneca. The atmosphere is simple but refined. The service is great and professional without being stuffy. The sommelier really has some great recommendations and loves his job. The food is to die for if... More

My twins of 15 and I ate last night in the restaurant and the food was fantastic. This morning we learnt how to make pasta and rocket pesto. Truly inspirational. A great experience and a must in this part of Umbria.

My daughter and I enjoyed a week in Norcia and attended an intensive cooking school. We had the pleasure of joining SeattleSojourner (rewiew below) for a few of those classes. I must say that Seattle's review was exactly what I would have written. Since the arrival of Chef Mazzella, Vespasia has become a steller example of what to do right... More

We spent a week in Norcia at the Plazzo Seneca and not only ate at this restaurant several times, but took cooking classes there. The food is spectacular! In fact, we had a couple of the best dinners we have had anywhere. Having cooked in the kitchen we can report that it has the top quality equipment, terrific staff, and... More
