Superb

One of the finest meals I have ever had- from beginning to end. Quintessential Italian food with a five-star flair. The service was impeccable.

I recommend Tempio for lunch. We were the first to arrive and had optimal service and great food. The atmosphere was carefully crafted with a mix of interesting furniture and wall pieces. The waitress was very attentive to our bread basket and water glasses, as well as our questions and needs. Complimentary starters were brought out as we awaited our... More

There is such a high bar when you dine in Italy. Even higher when you're in Umbria. With such expectations, it is amazing to be completely blown away by a meal. Such was my experience at lunch here. All this at a ridiculously fair price. Thank you chef for your talent and passion!

This is one of my favourite restaurants. Cuisine is varied and plated beautifully. Owners offered extra dishes for free as they were experimenting with recipes.

A pleasure to be at this small restaurant with often quite special food items and interesting wines including very good local wines. We had lunch on a rather cool but sunny day and went via antipasti and paste to main courses and good deserts. Will be here more often!

One of the best dining experiences I've ever had, Tempio del Gusto is definitely worthy of its high ranking and praise. The dishes were faultless and beautifully presented, with the chef coming to our table to offer shaved white truffles to compliment our meal. The staff were friendly and professional, and the restaurant itself is small and intimate with candlelit... More

We wanted one major "up market" dinner out whilst we had a few days in Spoleto in September. Boy we were not disappointed! For the price of one good dinner in London, three of us indulged in the most wonderful Italian cuisine and local wine. The restaurant itself is small and intimate, but quite quirky. The food is extraordinarily good... More

We initially deliberately avoided this restaurant during our week stay in Spoleto, with its high ratings we anticipated elevated pricing and perhaps ostentatious / pretentious meal preparation and presentation. By default we ended up eating here and the el fresco meal we had here on our last night was faultless, as was the service , the reception was warm and... More
