My husband and I ate well in Italy but this restaurant was by far the best meal we had throughout our travels. A local recommended this restaurant as her favourite place to eat in Spoleto. I can see why. The atmosphere is lovely, a perfect intimate location for a romantic meal. It's built above Roman ruins and very close to... More

We had a wonderful 2-3 course meal (2 for my daughters and 3 for me and my husband). The food was great, the service was excellent (though there was only one other table when we were there). Upscale and inventive menu. We did pay twice as much here than we have at any other restaurant in Spoleto.

My four friends and I stopped here for dinner during our week in Spoleto. We were impressed with the cozy atmosphere of the restaurant, as well as with its set menu, which was a great value and variety for the money. The staff was attentive and when only one of us ordered an appetizer, they brought free samplers for the... More

We were so lucky to find this restaurant. We visited Spoleto on a Monday in May when many of the restaurants and stores in town were closed and even the escalator from our parking garage was not working. After walking to the top of town, across the Ponte delle Torri, around La Rocca and visiting the cathedral, we walked all... More

This is a very good restaurant that is just a bit overrated in my opinion. Good food (some excellent!), wonderful ambiance, and very good service. It actually might justify four stars but for our expectations after having read the exceptional reviews. We started with appetizers of tuna tartare, which was topped with a cream sauce, and a salumi and cheese... More

Three weeks into a four week Italian holiday, and Tempio del Gusto now heads our restaurant ranking. After failing to secure a table on our first night in Spoleto, we made sure we booked in for a subsequent evening. It proved an exemplary lesson in cuisine and customer service. The antipasti course of cheeses, hams, dips and vegetables was outstanding,... More

This was one of the best meals we had during a 3 week tour of Italy. The service was excellent as was the quality of the food. All the little extras in between courses were a lovely surprise. We expected it to be very expensive but did not cost much more than other meals we ate in the area and... More

I visited this restaurant last week with four other friends while on a trip to Spoleto. We kept it for our final night as we were told it " was the best in town". We had a booking for 8.00 pm but no one came to take our order until 8.45 pm. We ordered wine and our meal. Our first... More

We were excited to try the number one rated restaurant, Tempio del Gusto, but we were disappointed. The food is trying hard to be modern and traditional at the same time and it seems that it's not succeeding at either. We have a first course of strangozzi in tomato sauce, a signature dish of Spoleto. It is oversauced and the... More
