“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Apart from the fact that you are visiting a gem of town in Umbria, this restaurant is certainly one on your "to do list"
The atmosphere is of fine dining without the stuffiness. Great decor. My selection of food was delectable. Service was attentive and on the ball without being overbearing. Great selection of wine and a great view to what's happening in the kitchen.
Definitely a must eat there when visiting the beautiful town of Spello

“Went there twice!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

The food and atmosphere were striking. There is indoor and outdoor seating, and both offer beauty and atmosphere. We chose inside because of the lovely furnishings - elegant yet rustic at at the same time. We enjoyed local pasta dishes, as well as appetizers that ranged from delicate slices of local salamis and fresh cheeses to crunchy bruschetta and grilled vegetables. Spello is a beautiful town, filled with narrow cobbled streets and hills that help you work up an appetite. Wines featuring the grapes of Umbria added a magical touch to our meals.

“Local Umbrian cuisine at its best”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

If you park in the top part of Spello in the Piazza del Republica, this gem of a restaurant is 100 metres away. Inside, its arched ceilings resemble an ancient crypt and the well proportioned owner provides a warm welcome. We had several delicious low cost pasta dishes - spinach and ricotta ravioli in tomato sauce, unbelievable omelette with plenty of black truffle and tagliatelle with truffle, olive oil and parmesan. If you are visiting Spello or just passing, La Cantina is an absolute must.
