“Absolutely Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

I was in Spolet for the weekend and had what I think was my best meal in Italy yet! The space is great and the staff is welcoming. I had an icredible dinner, with a mixed antipasto and an amazing Itlaian Kobe tartare. It was heaven, not to mention the amaretto dessert that knoked my socks off! It was so good the we came back for lunch the next day, sat inside in the cool grotto area and had a delicious fresh pasta course. It is well worth the trip and I may go back even if only for the food. I STRONGLY reccomend this outstanding restaurant. Pentagramma!!

“A superb lunch in Spoleto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Il Pentagramma is in a lane just off the main square, Piazza Della Liberta, where the tourist office is now located. We had a fabulous lunch, one of the best of our 8 week tour of Italy. The appertivi were more than just the usual cold meat and cheese: ours included a terrine of rabbit and little porcini mushroom pastries. Our mains were veal and turkey respectively, with high quality local wine. Dolci were a berry concoction with cream. All this for about €60. Service (from Ferdico) was excellent. When I asked him about the wines, he also brought an additonal local wine to sample and discuss.The restaurant is in a beautiful, historic building with arched brick ceilings.

“Delightful food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Our host Frederico was charming and helpful. The food was unique with local fare and flavours. Foodies would love it. The local wine was excellent and the prices very reasonable. Lots of variety in the menu and the ambiance of the restaurant was great., with a jazzy feel, which made this an outstanding experience in comparison with so many others.

“A poor reflection of what Umbrian food can be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

I've visited Italy often, and I always note when I have a meal that -- for whatever reason -- could only be had and enjoyed in Italy. In other words, whether by the quality or style of food, preparation, service, or atmosphere, the meal just can't be duplicated abroad. This isn't one of those places (unless you want to count the location: a busy, automobile-trafficked, and not-very-scenic piazza). The food was "by the numbers" -- any attempt to offer "unique" Umbrian food soon proved bland, without any passion or flavor. Service was harried and inattentive (and I'm usually VERY forgiving of such things). One of our least favorite and overpriced meals in Italy.
