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.

This restaurant is in the most lively part of Spoletto. We went there twice during our short stay and although it was not as busy as a nearby restaurant, it was consistently good food of good value with pleasant service.

This has a great location in the Piazza Mercato so you can do plenty of people watching! The food is good and they make a real effort with presentation and service.

Great place offering food which is typical to the region and not over complicated. There are a number of other establishments which were offering all kinds of off the wall menus, but this place kept it reasonably simple and truth be told, we struggled to agree on what to eat. The menu was that good we wanted to try it... More

The restaurant is located right in the beautiful Piazza Mercato in Spoleto. The overall feeling of Ristoranto del Mercato is one of refined, elegant cuisine without the often excessive price tag. The service is friendly, the food is tasty and ample in the portion sizes. The restoranto uses all local products in their cuisine, I would recommend Ristoranto del Mercato... More

This restaurant was recommended by our vacation apartment owner and did not disappoint. Good food, good service at reasonable prices. A speciality of the region seems to be this slightly flat, sometime twisted (hand cut) pasta called strangozzi and is often served as Strangozzi a la Spoletino. It was very good here (a light tomato sauce with chilli flakes -spicy... More
