Excellent food and service, best strangozzi ever. Had a patient employee explain to kids she learned from japanese origami books how to prepare all dish cloths/ serviettes differently. Ours was a very beautiful table. Great overall experience.

This restaurant was recommended but not quite sure why, it was just OK. We ordered a plate of cold meats to share which were nice, especially with the honey and cheese. The strangozzi pasta with tomato sauce was a bit ordinary although my tagliatelle with mushrooms was very nice. My husband ordered the pork skewer and that's exactly what he... More

Good food, friendly service, no complaints. It seemed it was a place frequented mostly by locals. However, it seems that when something is in season, all restaurants have the same dish.

We ate here several times during our time in Spoleto. I had a mushroom pasta, a spinach and mushroom ravioli, and strangozzi spoletina. My husband tried several lamb and pork dishes. Our server was all smiles and in constant motion. The tiramasu is fabulous.

That was my first italian restaurant to which brought me my boyfriend two years ago. Since that time we're coming back there from time to time. The place is in the center of centro storico. Very good regional food, nice and friendly stuff speaking english and very cheap prices. The interior is in charming, italian and modest style. A place... More

The food was good and well presented by attentive and helpful staff. We went there a number of times during our stay in Spoleto. We would have come back more often, but the menu was a bit limited. Most of the dishes on offer were variations on grilled lamb or pork - all very well cooked but there's a limit... More

Lanterna offers much character, friendly welcome and the heartwarming and reassuring sight of two mature and very experienced-looking chefs in the kitchen. It took a bit to decide what to have, as the menu spoils for choices. We eventually selected starters of bruschette miste and prosciutto e melone. The bruschette were very nice with various vegetable toppings, but the prosciutto... More

I ate a variety of things over 2 stays highlights were the great spelt salads and gnocchi. They also had some really good local beers and quality house wines. No hesitation in... More
