Looks like a neighborhood place for lunch.Rather Spartan interior. We enjoyed our meal, and had no complaints about the food.

We stumbled upon Novecento by chance soon after arriving in Spoleto. From the outside it looked almost like a curiosity shop but immediately we were made very welcome. The food was sensational! Traditional Italian with some creative (but not at all wacky) touches, beautifully presented and so fresh. A 'must-visit' restaurant if you are in Spoleto! It's in a convenient... More

The decor is worth the visit. Very different from other "typical" decors here. The capuccino dessert was a bit too rich for me, but tasted amazing.

Novecento is a small tratoria in the lower town, a short walk from the Hotel San Luca with lots of local atmosphere. We were disappointed in the two pasta dishes which had too much salt, but with less salt would have been very good. The duck was overdone and tough. But the cheese flan on black chickpea cream and Bacon... More

New management, great same feeling. Menu is presented inside books, great antipasti and staff are very knowledgeable about the wine selection. A nice spot at the top of the Borgo in Spoleto. Not too big, used to be a clothes shop and has maintained many of the features of this Old American style clothing outlet. I suggest the pig meat... More

It's a very unusual restaurant with different areas and atmospheres, including a tiny terrace, where we ate. Food was delicious and tasty. The only problema was to comunícate with the waitress since she did not speak italian or english,

Cosy, friendly atmosphere. Loved the food - antipasto was fantastic. They were very accommodating and despite being a small restaurant they accommodated our party of 12! Would definitely go back!

Everything was perfect. Wonderful atmosphere, food and wine. The owner gave us recommendations, but not in intrusive way.

Stopped here on the recommendation of other trip advisor reviewers. My sister had the polenta with truffles and pecorino. It was fabulous and a generous portion for lunch. We shared a huge side salad...typical and boring but tasted fresh. I had tagliettle carbonara. Again, really large portion for lunch and while it tasted great, I've not yet ever actually had...
