This place was recommended to us by a shop keeper and it certainly didn't disappoint. There were tables of locals and a few tourists who had obviously been told about it also. The food was very authentic and we asked what dishes were exclusively from the region and ordered those. They were great! The service was friendly, food fabulous and... More

Fortunately, we weren't looking for a "dining experience" when we came to Taverna La Lanterna. It is a simple place, with a not too inspired menu. My husband ordered a sausage, which was okay, but overcooked. His roasted potatoes were excellent. I had a pasta dish which was unremarkable, and our shared dessert was artificially flavored and could have come... More

We had a deliscious dinner here in early April. We started with assorted cured meats. The pasta was all home and outstanding and the tomato sauce deliscious. The red wine was so reasonable that when we finished our half liter we ordered another. My husband had the cream brule which he loved the taste of but they forgot to brule... More

We arrived rather late in the evening, concerned the kitchen at La Lanterna might already be closed. Happily, they were still open and we had a delightful meal.

Umbria is a great place for food and wine and La Lanterna is one of the most appreciated trattorie in Spoleto. Although nothing particularly exceptional, first dishes with truffles were good but probably their carbonara is better. Good house wine and very good desserts. Price is reasonable and service is very attentive and familar

This restaurant was recommended by our host. We immediately felt like family. The food was authentic Umbrian fare and the flavors were wonderful. Everything we had was exceptional, especially the Spelt Salad! The service was attentive and friendly. We went back a second time and we were welcomed warmly. Italians like when Tourists return. Its a nice walk up the... More

Very good "trattoria", selected randomly walking through Spoleto old alleys, a stone throw from Piazza del Mercato, turned out to be the right guess! After a quick starter of "bruschette" seasoned with freshly produced olive oil, I had a delicious broad beans creamy soup flavored with "pecorino" cheese, which was really excellent. Then came the second, as lamb chops flavored... More

Their menu is clearly marked for items containing gluten, so we thought we'd give it a try since my husband must eat GF. The waitress seemed to understand about gluten free "senza glutine" and was helpful. My husband had lamb, baked veggies (eggplant, zucchini, and tomato) and grilled potatoes. I had a sliced beef salad with "rocket" greens (arugula and... More

We ate in this restaurant during a recent trip to Spoleto. It was a great experience from start to finish. Staff extremely friendly and welcoming. Most importantly, the food was excellent. Very authentically Italian - and with great taste. We drank the house red wine which was very good and cheap! Overall, we really enjoyed our night here and intended... More

We found it too crowded when we happened on it in the evening, but it looked good, so we returned the following day for lunch. And it was good. The location is also excellent, as it's close to the archaeological museum and other sites from old Spoleto. The prices are surprisingly reasonable. The menu of Umbrian foods invites exploration over... More
