Excellent typical local food in Spoleto!

Very good "trattoria", selected randomly walking through Spoleto old alleys, a stone throw from Piazza del Mercato, turned out to be the right guess! After a quick starter of "bruschette" seasoned with freshly produced olive oil, I had a delicious broad beans creamy soup flavored with "pecorino... read more

Umbria is a great place for food and wine and La Lanterna is one of the most appreciated trattorie in Spoleto. Although nothing particularly exceptional, first dishes with truffles were good but probably their carbonara is better. Good house wine and very good desserts. Price is reasonable and service is very attentive and familar

This restaurant was recommended by our host. We immediately felt like family. The food was authentic Umbrian fare and the flavors were wonderful. Everything we had was exceptional, especially the Spelt Salad! The service was attentive and friendly. We went back a second time and we were welcomed warmly. Italians like when Tourists return. Its a nice walk up the... More

Their menu is clearly marked for items containing gluten, so we thought we'd give it a try since my husband must eat GF. The waitress seemed to understand about gluten free "senza glutine" and was helpful. My husband had lamb, baked veggies (eggplant, zucchini, and tomato) and grilled potatoes. I had a sliced beef salad with "rocket" greens (arugula and... More

We ate in this restaurant during a recent trip to Spoleto. It was a great experience from start to finish. Staff extremely friendly and welcoming. Most importantly, the food was excellent. Very authentically Italian - and with great taste. We drank the house red wine which was very good and cheap! Overall, we really enjoyed our night here and intended... More

We found it too crowded when we happened on it in the evening, but it looked good, so we returned the following day for lunch. And it was good. The location is also excellent, as it's close to the archaeological museum and other sites from old Spoleto. The prices are surprisingly reasonable. The menu of Umbrian foods invites exploration over... More

Kind, good-natured folk who provide a very decent meal at a fair price in pleasant surroundings. What more could one ask for? We really liked the attitude here, unassuming and flexible and eager to please. Great choice at an attractive price point, unlike nearby competitors with higher profiles. I am done. The end.

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 the kitchen doing the cooking. I... 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
