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

Located in the awesome town of Spello, the restaurant offers the same type of cuisine as for other local restaurants. The raving reviews did not live up to my expectations at all. Service was slow, waitresses rather snob and the food was very expensive for what was offered. I would not go back to this restaurant if in Spello again.

We have been visiting Spello in Umbria for over 30 years and have known La Cantina during all that time. It has been consistently good and very Umbrian in its offerings - but for the past few years has added lighter and Tuscan touches to its menu and can now claim to be the best in the charming little town...

Brick walls, busy, bustling, noisy, cheerful. A lovely atmosphere. Full, mostly with Italians, for dinner on a Tuesday evening. My wife chose frittata with truffles for starters and I had a delicious potato and porcini sformatino with parmesan sauce and truffles, then we both had tagliata di manzo chianina (perfectly cooked on the rare side of medium rare) with rocket,...

This restaurant was booked for us by our tour guide and was a fantastic choice. We have very little Italian but we were guided through the food & wine list by a wonderful host. The food was lovely. The steaks are to be recommended! The atmosphere was great. This is obviously a restaurant used by locals and tourists alike. There... More
