Sitting high on a remote hill outside of Spoleto is a gem of a restaurant. We enjoyed lunch at this beautiful spot on a perfect, sunny afternoon. While the food is well worth coming back for dinner I personally would not hazard the drive up the serpentine road leading to this oasis of quiet. I had the special of the... More

About 15 minutes from Spoleto, off the road to Terni - well signposted so easy to find. Beautifully set in quiet Umbrian hillside with panoramic views. We were here in winter so not Alex to take advantage of the alfresco dining - on the other hand we enjoyed the open fire and the cosy atmosphere in what is in fact... More

After visiting Spoleto this summer, we stumbled on this gem of a restaurant in the hills south of the town. Although the indoor dining room was beautifully set, everyone seems to enjoy dining al fresco in the summer. We were happily shaded by huge old trees. Impressive wine list, excellent menu, lovely food, fine service. Even the restrooms were delightful!

At 1,5 km distance off the national road Flaminia between Spoleto and Terni, the well sign posted Il Capanno restaurant owned and run by the Rastelli family is a joy to look around at the first glance. Beautiful summer gazebo and tables outdoor surrounded by figs trees; appropriate indoor deco and tables set with fine linen; a menu a la... More

20 years ago Il Capanno was a simple, country trattoria offering typical Umbrian dishes - good value but nothing exceptional. A change of generations brought a change of direction - to move up-market and offer something more ambitious on the menu. It has to be said that for several years ambition outstripped execution but Il Capanno has now found its... More
