“Fantastic Lunch and Olive Oil Tasting”

Extra Vergine OleOteca
Ranked #19 of 60 Restaurants in Spello
Price range: USD 11 - USD 46
Description: Siamo una oleoteca fortemente legata a questo bellissimo territorio, siamo a Spello, città dell'olio e dei fiori, oli umbri in primis ma da tutte le regioni italiane e con uno sguardo importante all'olivicoltura internazionale. Siamo una bottega, siamo una piccola biblioteca/libreria con riviste bellissime (ah, grazie Edicola 518), siamo una oleoteca culinaria in cui vengono utilizzati prodotti di qualità abbinati ai migliori oli extravergini italiani ed internazionali. Abbiamo un unico tavolo, per cui vorremmo che le persone parlassero tra loro, ci piacciono le connessioni che nascono dalle parole.

I recently spent two weeks in Spello for a language class. We had a wonderful olive oil tasting and lunch at OleOteca. The food and wine were all locally sourced and delicious.. Our host couldn’t have been more gracious. I highly recommend this experience.

The best shop to try and choose olive oil! The numerous olive oils that you can try and choose what you like! The owner is great, he explains all the peculiarities of each producer, and the differences of each oil. Highly recommended to visit and do some shopping!

An oil tasting degustation menu is a must-do in Spello. Expert and very friendly service from the front of house. Very enjoyable and will be back again with friends soon.

If you're visiting Spello with dreams of discovering culinary wonders, Extra Vergine OleOteca is definitely a must. My wife and I had the good fortune of experiencing this unique venue twice over the last several months and each visit enhanced our appreciation of Italy's many and varied extra virgin olive oil by way of a masterful pairing with a delicious assortment of Umbria's seasonal food offerings.

While we sat at a beautiful crafted wooden table, OleOteca's Pierluigi expertly introduced us to an array of oils, detailing their origin, composition, and flavor characteristics before encouraging us to sample each with a variety of delicious dishes prepared by his colleague Monia.

At this point it's important to stress the seasonal nature of the food on offer. During our first visit during the height of summer, our pairing included a wonderful pappa al pomodoro as well as an amazing homemade hummus. Yesterday's visit with a group of friends featured a variety of local vegetables and an amazing pasta. The highlight of both visits was sampling the various dishes with different extra virgin olive oils and experiencing firsthand how each imparts its own special essence to food.

In short, if you're looking for a unique opportunity to sample some of the finest elements of Italy's culinary tradition, a visit to Extra Vergine OleOteca is highly recommended.

If you are passionate about the green gold, EVOO or a novice who wants to learn more about it, EVO (short for Extra Vergine OleOteca) is the place for you. Everyone is familiar with wine/food pairing but the same holds true with olive oil and food. Here at EVO, you'll have an unique experience to taste various high quality oils produced in Italy and other countries, learning the differences, the food pairing or simply enjoying a delicious meal or appetizers in a beautiful ancient sala (there is Roman ruin underneath).
Our lunch started with a selections of the olives, not the typical run of the mill varietis, followed by various appetizers, from bruschette with different olive paste toppings, to vegetables dressed with different oils; concluding with a pasta dish and a dessert. The food was light and creative to compliment the exquisite olive oils. If you don't feel like a meal, they also offer the option of appetizer/oil tasting but you'll still walk away with new knowledge and appreciation of the green gold.
