Description: Enoteca Properzio 2 is set in a very specific context, specifically in a place dating in 1550, part of the famous palazzo dei Canonici , next to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore in Spello. Legend says that here Pinturicchio lived and worked in this environment for a long time , (considered the most celebrated artist in the area). Enoteca Properzio 2 , also protected by the Fine Arts, comes from the requeirement to offer customers a greater and more impressive space compared to the original Properzio 1. The restaurant is divided into several areas, designed for the maximum comfort of guests: outdoor area with umbrellas, indoor dining rooms , rooms for private tastings and a large interior courtyard for summer. Why do people choose Enoteca Properzio 2? It is the ideal place for breakfasts, lunches and exclusive dinners with tasting menus or a la carte or even to enjoy amazing aperitivi at any time during your day.

“American student wine tasting”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Group of 4 American graduate students arranged wile tasting luncheon ahead of time. Great service and atmosphere, a friend of the owner translated into English so we did not lose out on his advice. Great meal and wine parings, sent a half case of wine/ olive oil back to the states for gifts.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

After reading many positive reviews here on tripadvisor, we were extremely disappointed by this place. We called in advance to know if we could have dinner and were informed that they have a reduced menu at the moment but that all their food is of good quality. Upon arrival, we were neither asked what we wanted, nor handed a menu or wine list. It was the owner taking charge here, not leaving us any choices. We were served a big dish of bruschette each and a glass of Grechetto followed by two red wines. The wines were undoubtedly very good but the food was extremely poor. We were given very little choice of dishes (soup and two kinds of pasta to choose from). When we saw that the soup was coming from the microwave, we skipped that one. Where the Michelin Star Chef was the owner mentioned - we don't know. We took the tagliatelle al tartufo that were nothing special at all. Roberto the owner was very pushy trying to sell us some expensive wines and he was rude enough to mention that as we are from Switzerland we should have enough money to order a couple of boxes. After that, all we wanted was leave. If in Spello, ignore this place if you want really good food. Try La Cantina instead, a place with great atmosphere, real chefs and authentic food.

“The One Restaurant We Plan All of Our Trips to Tuscany and Umbria Around”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

We are Americans living in southern Italy, and thus have the good fortune to be able to visit Enoteca Properzio with some frequency. Any time we are traveling to Toscana or Umbria we make whatever detour is necessary from our route to visit the proprietor Roberto and enjoy the wonderful tasting menu. The good food, excellent wine, first-class service, and charm of this place will keep you coming back time and time again (or wishing you could!). You will probably also learn a thing or two since Roberto always makes time to teach you a little about the wines you are tasting.

“Incrediable Experience”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We had the most wonderful lunch here in September. The food, the owner, his son and brother were all incrediable. We were there for 3 hours and so much fun. We also bought a few cases of wine which were shipped promptly and continue to remind of the experience. If you are in Spello you must stop by and visit/eat/drink with the Angelini's!

“Best Enoteca in Umbria”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor of the Enoteca Properzio in the beautiful town of Spello we decided to stop for a quick glass of the local Grechetto wine after a long day of sightseeing. We were ever glad that we did. After drinking our glass of wine we were about to leave when we were approached by the charming owner, Roberto Angelini, and his lovely daughter, Irena, who engaged us in a conversation about the local vintages and life in Spello. Roberto insisted that we try the prosciutto and pecorino cheese as well as other local delicacies accompanied by the wonderful wine stocked by this Enoteca. Our quick glass of Grechetto turned into a two hour memorable visit. Definitely a highlight of not only our recent trip to Umbria but of our eight or so previous trips to Italy. We cannot say enough about Roberto and Irena and the Enoteca Properzio. Grazie Roberto and Irena. We will return.
