Delicious and friendly

we asked a few locals in the area and a few said to go to La Cantina for the best meal. They were right. We tasted the most delicious ravioli with pomodoro and basil sauce. The sauce was so delicious,, I asked for another plate of Strangozzi with that same pomodoro and basilica sauce. It is... read more

We have visited Spello many times and without a doubt this is the finest restaurant we have eaten in (even in Umbria). The chef is very innovative and the choice of dishes is amazing. The decor is warm and inviting and the owner and staff attentive. Nothing to do with the food but loved all the lighting shaped like giant... More

One of the best meal ever! Everything was just delicious, unique flavours and combinations, from starters to desserts, the white truffle was unbelievable, the service was flawless, the place is amazing... I'll never forget the day we spent in Spello and the lunch we had at this place. Thank you Paolo and all the staff!

We called in for lunch and the restaurant is a lovely building with great charm. Whilst the waitress was very pleasant, the food was very mediocre and we have had far better in Umbria. Not to be repeated.

First off, I need to mention how gorgeous this place is! It's really beautiful. When you see a lovely place like that with a wonderful sounding menu, you expect great things. Unfortunately, everything went downhill fast. The service was friendly when they showed up, but that was seldom. When you're paying ristorante prices, the service is usually more attentive and...

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant on one of the evenings we spent ins Spello last autumn. Having dined in most of the restaurants in town I have to say that the design of this place is the most stylish, no wonder it is so high on the restaurant list. We were pleasantly surprised to be seated... More

I had one of the best steaks I have eaten in Italy. Actually the whole meal was delightful and the wine list was very good. This restaurant is rated the best in Spello and probably warranted but it comes at a price. There are better value restaurants in Spello where the food is also excellent but this is a gourmet...

La Cantina was recommended by a shopkeeper down the street and believe me, we were not disappointed. After traveling in Tuscany and Umbria for 3 weeks, we enjoyed the best prosciutto of the entire trip at LaCantina as well as a wonderful dish of scrambled eggs with black truffles - both were definitely memorable. The owner was quite congenial and... More
