I had the opportunity to visit a Ristorante recommended by a friend in the States, who, when she lived here in Spoleto was more than a frequent visitor. Now that I have eaten here I understand why she would keep coming back, excellent food, friendly and warm Waite staff, and two lovely Sisters in... read more

We ate in this restaurant twice. On Sunday we arrived about 1:00pm and were fortunate enough to get one of the last unreserved tables. By 1:30pm the restaurant was full of Italian families. The food was excellent as was the staff.

Went for dinner twice in two days. Just the kind of place I love. Unpretentious, friendly with a simple menu serving local produce. One night I had pasta with zucchini and saffron. Not obvious but subtle and delicious. The next night truffle omelette that melted in my mouth. Superb. All washed down with a carafe of local wine. A perfect... More

My husband and I enjoyed our meal at this local restaurant, the service was friendly and helpful. My lamb chops with truffles were very tasty and my husband enjoyed his local sausages and fried potatoes. Wine by the glass was excellent and good value. A good choice for dinner would recommend.

A local recommended this restaurant and we were so impressed that we returned 2 nights later. The house red wine was from Montefalco and was great for 8 Euros for a liter. Good menu with specials and we mostly ordered the specials. The staff was friendly. Our waitress remembered use and remembered to give us special wine glasses. Most of... More

Good and cheap restaurant. You can taste the tradition food without to fear the addition at the end. Appear to be in a family. I will come back to test the other choices on the menu. Slurp!

We visit Spoleto every year and hadn't visited La Lanterna yet. I'm so glad we did! The strangozzi al tartufo was so delicious and fresh! It's truffle season, and I'm a happy, happy person! Fresh made pasta makes ALL the difference. The staff was friendly and service was good, although my salad and pasta arrived at the same time, yet... More

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.
