A great veal steak that was delicious with a lovely bottle of white wine that went down a treat on a hot June day. We were very amused by the owners young son who served us our dessert. At the tender age of 9 I am sure he has a great future in catering. Recommended

I am puzzled by the negative reviews of this osteria/wine bar. We came across it by chance while looking in increasing desperation for somewhere for lunch and enjoyed it tremendously. The mama was very welcoming and friendly, there was an excellent wine list and we ate a really good pappardelle with wild boar ragu. The service was good and we left feeling rather smug at having discovered such a good place to eat.

My partner and I were looking in desperation for somewhere to eat and saw the busy terrace of this restaurant and took it to be a good sign, it wasn't !

We paid 55 euros for a bottle of water, wine, 2 coffees, wild boar (chingale) pappardelle, wild boar stew with potatoes and spinach and 2 panna cottas (pre bought and still served in the plastic carton). The food was mediocre and luke warm and there wasn't that much of it, it arrived at sporadic intervals too. The service wasn't anything special either.

I think the location makes this place popular, it's off a main square, it's certainly not the food !

As we had a disappointing experience with a restaurant the previous evening (Il Pentagramma) we were very wary about where to eat our 2nd night in Spoleto and had neglected to get a recommendation from the hotel. So we wandered the quiet streets as darkness descended, passing many appealing looking places that were empty of customers (not a good sign). Finally, just past the Piazza del Mercato we came upon Il Mio Vinaio, which had a terrace crowded largely with Italians (a very good sign) and an interesting looking menu board.

This is not an 'upscale' restaurant. The quality of the food was certainly not as refined as that of Il Pentagramma where we had dinner the previous evening. But the rustic styled food was tasty, the service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere was convivial. And at the end of the evening, the cook herself emerged from the kitchen to receive the accolades of the customers, to give hugs, and to offer glasses of limoncello.

Il Mio VInaio - a simple place with honest cooking that made our evening in Spoleto an event to remember.
