“One night in June”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Food was OK, but service was slow and in spite of many open tables in the shade on a hot night, we were put at a table in the sun. Then the waiter messed up the order and instead of stepping and saying "my mistake" sort of obligated me to eat what I'd been served in spite of it all. Then there was no attempt to make it right on the bill or in any other way; we will not go back.

“Everything Perfect”
Reviewed April 4, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled across this restaurant while walking around Spello one quiet night.

A bit off the beaten track but well signed from the main street. It was too cold to eat outside so we ate inside in what appeared to be a cave, quite unique and reminded us of the sassi's in Matera.

The restaurant is fine dining and the menu is excellent providing a good and wide selection. We started with a variety of bruschetta which was great and the mains included lasagne done a way we have never had before. Other mains included pasta and tagliatelle with wild asparagus which were equally as good. The meals were relatively small in quantity but very high in quality.

Service was excellent and we would return without hesitation.

“Excellent small restaurant with wonderful views over the vallata near Spello”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

We have eaten here about 6 times in the past 2 years and have always been well pleased. Quite apart from the traditional Umbrian fare - with a modern and lighter twist, the views from the summer terrace are beautiful and magical at nights! The service is delightful - very agreeable young people with decent English and time to chat. Try it! Excellent wine list too.

“Excellent Food and Service in a modern atmosphere”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

Great Food and Great Service. Located in an old brick building with a vaulted ceiling but decorated in a modern decor. The water and waitress were attentive without being annoying. The food was top notch but the prices were very affordable. A great value. I'd highly recommend it.

“Tasty lunch on a hot day”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

We dropped in without booking and were seated on the balcony with lovely views of the valley. Service was good and the food excellent. Antipasti to start was great followed by excellent pasta main courses and the vino di tavola was superb.
