Great food, attentive service, celiac-friendly too

Very tasty dinner here the week before last, they even baked me a gluten-free roll (which sometimes happens in Spain, but it has never happened to me in Italy before). They were also happy to adapt recipes to help me avoid lactose. I found it on a list produced by the Associazione italiana della... read more

We were a bit rushed for time and settled on this restaurant even though it was packed on a Sunday lunch. Spoleto is quite a tourist attraction,deservedly so even before all the episodes of a famous TV series,but the tagliatelli with truffles definitely suffered in comparison with what we had eaten in Gubbio just the day before.

Whilst wandering around the beautiful city of Spoleto on Saturday night we came across this restaurant with tables al fresco on a little square and decided to give it a whirl. We were not disappointed. The food, service, ambience and overall presentation were all lovely. My husband had the Norcia Ham and fritelle - Deep fried pastry/bread served hot to... More

Don't miss if eating in Spoleto. This is fine Italian food served in the covered terrace in the Piazza. It is cooked without self consciousness with an attractive but simple presentation where the taste exceeds the initial high expectation. The food is based on local Spoleto cuisine. It was a joy when we tripped over it for lunch. It was... More

A high tripadvisor ranking, let's try... The waiter was quite helpful. We shared our piatti and got everything served in seperate (half) portions, super! The antipasti was a Fondue of truffel. The truffel piece had no taste, the cheese was also quite tasteless. The primi piatti was a pasta with truffel, we ordered a pasta with tomato. When we received... More

Visiting Spoleto for the first time we picked del Mercato on TA and booked by phone the day before. We were all delighted with the choice and enjoyed a great celebratory lunch outside with a good people watching table. Food highlights were the stuffed zucchini flowers, the truffle trilogy, the strangozzi and the trout with a very reasonable bottle of... More

The "tourist central" location and decor of the terrace seating gave the impression of just one more standard tourist restaurants, but we decided to give it a try on the basis of good tripadvisor buzz and sore feet. What we ate was actually quite surprising, even the presentation of such standard local fare as strangozzi alla spoletina was subtle rather... More

This place looks like basically any other restaurant on basically any other piazza. We stopped in for dinner mostly because it was close to where we were staying and it seemed lively at 10:30 or so. Lively is perhaps an understatement: the place was clearly understaffed, but everyone involved was working their butts off so we waited patiently. The food... More

We stopped in for a quick bite while revisiting Spoleto. The food here is excellent. And the best wine was inexpensive. Folks good cooking is not hard to do. And they show they can do good cooking very well. Please come and enjoy a bite at this restaurant.
