Not really a restaurant but interesting paste, particularly the carbonara. And the view is good if you are so lucky to find a place facing the theatre. Good local wines. Nothing poshy, just enjoy

Although this is called Bar Canasta, it is just as much a restaurant as a drinking establishment. You can either eat inside or out. It was full of locals and is not on the tourist trail in spite of being centrally located. The food is traditional. I enjoyed a really flavoursome pasta with guanciale and porcini. Service is friendly and... More

Very handy for a relaxing lunch in the shade. The food was tasty with nice salads. The staff were friendly and the prices very reasonable.

Excellent in that you can always find a table that is shaded by their awning...and their gelato, sandwiches, various coffee drinks, and snacks are well priced and always served with a smile. It is a great spot on the Piazza della Liberta to people watch...and if you are staying in or visiting Spoleto, you will walk by it at some... More

Regardless of sitting inside or out on the patio you are in for a wonderful experience. The food selection is fresh and comes hot and well prepared. The wine serving is very generous with multiple choices. You will not be able to eat everything that is placed on your table. The servers are quick to please and address your specific... More

I've been there with family and friends! 7 adults and 5 kids (small kids!). We asked for the children everything out of menu and it was all accommodated (even the vegetable soup for the 1 year old child!!!!) and always with a big smile on the staff face, owner included! And I think this makes a big difference! Food was... More

For a casual restaurant, that also had a gelataria inside, we were pleasantly surprised. The food was superb! Once we ate here for lunch we returned again and again. The pasta dishes done to perfection, the seafood excellent. Ah....bread with olive oil and parm......loved it! Huge outside dining area facing the Liberta Plaza. The gelato and desserts were delicious too.

We were exhausted after our day of sightseeing and stopped at this popular lunch time venue. Quite a few locals appeared to be enjoying the relaxed and casual atmosphere. As siesta time ticked on the cafe became very busy, with the local business staff. The food was exceptional and we would have stayed longer to savour the atmosphere but we... More

We ate here twice while staying just outside Spoleto, on the recommendation of a local. It's a very casual place, but seemed very popular with local people. The food on both occasions was superb. We had various local pasta dishes and gnocchi to start, followed by salads, veal, chicken, and beef. The quality and flavour of all the food was... More

We stopped here a few times when we stayed in Spoleto, and each time we enjoyed what we ordered. Like many others, we found the food to be affordable and tasty. We never had a problem with service. We liked sitting on the wooden deck outside since we could watch the comings and goings in the piazza.

Thank Moonette
