Many people mentioned the same things in their reviews. We dined here several times while spending two weeks in Spoleto. The family who run the restaurant were friendly and helpful. They helped me with my poor Italian and made it a fun experience. The food and service were very good - house wines also. The figs with proscuitto and the pasta and cinghale were delicious and we had pleanty to it. We enjoyed our meals greatly. Location is good - close to the duomo and the historic places, but in a quiet area.

We had lunch and dinner out in Spoleto for a week, and this was by far the most disappointing. I had a sense that this restaurant was coasting on its location and 'elegance', but there was not the proper emphasis on food or service. First, the food--it is mediocre and too expensive compared with other excellent offerings around Spoleto. We started with rather average bruschetta for 8 euro, then moved on to a thin but tasty farro soup and minestrone (barely warm), and the poorest version of strangozzi alla spoletina that had a strange aftertaste and no heat. Then a grilled lamb that was overly salted and average quality. Our side dish never arrived, but we were charged anyway. Service was brusque, bordering on rude, a far cry from the warm welcome we received at other restaurants (see my glowing review of Osteria del Trivio, where we were treated like family). And the bill for our very average bruschetta, soup, bad pasta, salty lamb and one glass of wine (which had so much sediment, a quarter of it was undrinkable)? 54 euros. Give this one a miss and eat at these much better options: Osteria del Trivio, Ristorante del Mercato, Osteria dell'Enoteca, Osteria del Matto.

Extremely friendly service: not too much, not too less: just the right balance in feeling comfortable and feeling treated like a king.
The food was marvellous: ravioli con brancaleone, truffle omelette, tasteful wine, wonderful dessert....we enjoyed every bite of it. Recommended and another place we will return to on a next trip to Umbria.

This restaurant is pleasantly situated slightly away from the main tourist routes, a little way below the cathedral and not far from the town walls. The food and service was very good and the prices are reasonable. We enjoyed it very much, but it was not outstanding.

We enjoyed lunch here on a rainy cool day. The place was quiet ( maybe due to the rain) and the food was good. Servings not to big and price reasonable. Would recommend .
