The food was excellent, the service also and the restaurant certainly merits all the rave reviews that it receives. My reserve is purely a personal one: I tend to prefer a cuisine that is somewhat more straightforward, a bit less layered. But this wouldn't keep me from returning or from recommending it to anyone in search of a tpp-level experience..

We chose the "menu del territorio" (choice of local recipes) for only 35 EUR: antipasti, first dish (pasta), second dish (meat), dessert, coffee and little paistries. Two glasses of local wine and water included.
Excellent taste for value. We will come back for sure.

We purposely went to Spoleto to have lunch at il tempio del gusto and it didnt disappoint us. We took the Umbrain set meal and besides the standard 4 course set, 2 wines, ,water and coffee, we also had a complimentary soup which tasted fantastic.

The rest of the dishes (except dessert of coz) all had very generous portion of truffles and we totally enjoyed the lunch. We felt that the 4+1 course was quite heavy for one person, but we have no complains. The dessert was a bit disappointing though, but the main dishes more than compensate for it.

After the meal, we went to a nearby truffle store recc by the waitress to purchase truffle oil, truffle salt, etc.

Just a note, please park at the official parking area so as not to get a fine, we were famished, so decided to take a risk and park at the city square, so got a fine of 30 euro. That is excluding the ZTL fine if you arrive within the ZTL timing.

We went for lunch last sunday to Il tempio del Gusto, following the good reviews written about it, and even though the restaurant was complete we decided to wait 1 hour to get a table, it was really worth the waiting, the food was delicious, even if I'm not a truffle fan, it was cooked very well and i can say I liked the carpaccio with truffles on it.
We had the antipasti in that hour waiting in an informal enoteca close to this restaurant while waiting for our table and were surprised that we ended up paying just a little bit more here for a first and second plate with a superb service an food.

Last time in Spoleto, we tried number two on the list of restaurants, therefor we wanted to try out number one. And indeed it is excellent. My pasta dish with truffle and foie gras was even superbe. The waitress was very kind, and service overall excellent. The restaurant has several small rooms, so you have always the impression that you are in a tiny, cosy restaurant. When paying our check at the cashier, we were offered a piece of chocolate with no sugar by the chef cook which tasted excellent and had a smooth texture. A nice gesture.
Overall an excellent lunch which we really enjoyed!
