Beautiful location, food and service. Really top class food looked too pretty to eat. The restaurant is quirky and interesting. We had children with us who had the steak with some home made potato chips which was lovely. My husband and and I had the aubergine parmigiana , pasta with duck and truffles, veal cheeks, pork with BBQ sauce and... More

Ricotta Ravioli was dressed with lemon olive oil, completely spoiling the dish (when asked we were told it was the... More

Cristin is a very elegant hostess that makes you feel like home. The dining room and the terrace are really fantastic. The wine cellar is fabulous with great wines in very good prices. The food is tasty but some details are missing. Definitely worth a visit.

This place in the mountains is a must go. Difficult to find, and only because good friends told us about it we went. What a place. All dishes unbelievable quality and prices crazy.

This place is not easy to find but once you arrive at promises to be a fun dining experience. Set in the basement of a hotel this restaurant is cozy and romantic. The out door must be magnificent. We did not go outside to view it since is was sleeting and cold. The food was very good with many appetizers.... More

This was some of the best Italian food we have had since we have been in this great country. Definitely a must if you are staying in Spello. Highly recommended, especially the local gnocchi - magnifico :)

We came to dine at this special restaurant on the recommendation of an Italian guide book updated in 2015. It considers this restaurant is one of the best 10 restaurants to try in Italy in 2015. We came with the high expectation and left with total satisfaction. The welcoming little antipasti (different kinds of local cheeses, pizzas and bruschetta with... More

I was born in Spoleto (few kilometers away) and never heard about this place, even if I learn the present management has been there for 2 years only. I read ravishing reviews of this place on Tripadvisor (currently best restaurant in Umbria), so me and my partner have been there for dinner. What to say... The place is very, very... More
