“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This Wine shop/ restaurant is small but very welcoming. Food was delicious and you have to try the Pasta with truffles and some Montefalco Rosso! to wash it down. Where in this country would you be served by the owner with a small son on his hip tasting the wine and food his father was serving! This charming little place is why I love Italy, their love of children, food and wine!

“Good choice, casual dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile


Great wine selection. We had artichoke lasagna, green salad, vegetarian spaghetti and mixed cooked veggies. Food excellent, service, too.
Portions fine, but not as generous as we had in other restaurants in Italy.

“Best meal in Spello”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Happened on this place by chance - along the main road near our apartment. Name wasn't promising, but nothing else grabbed us and the menu sounded good so we gave it a try. Great choice. Spouse had a starter of white beans, red onions, fresh tomato and a little anchovy. It was very good. I had a sformatino of celery which was also excellent. The dessert were also excellent and of course the wine list was great. No other tourists - all locals enjoying wine and company or a quiet dinner. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent and interesting choice of food and wine. Bit more pricey than other restaurants in Spello, but worth it.
