This restaurant by the walls of the old town advertises a panorama view but with full tables only those at the wall edge get a real view. At our evening meal we had a pasta ragu which was pleasant and a chicken course which was dry and lacking in flavour. Food quality average overall.

This restaurant is a little out of the way, and when all other places are fully booked, you have a good chance to be seated here. The food is fantastic, wine list extensive, the service is quiet and precise. One of the best dinners we had in Spello.

The Porta Venere is actually a bit hard to find, as it is located towards the end of a narrow street that looks to be almost fully residential, but it is well signed posted, and it is worth tracking down. It's main attraction is its lovely terrace, with wonderful views over the Umbrian countryside. We only wanted a light lunch,... More

Just amazing. We shared a plate of Umbrian antipasti and tried to share the cauliflower flan, but it was so gorgeous we did not want to share, amazing flavour. For mains we had rabbit, veal, Porchetta, each stunning and full of flavour. Desserts did not disappoint, one chocolate cake and one caramelised orange pannacotta. Great coffee too, so worth a...

We came here with another family for lunch, and they seated the 9 of us without any problem at all. The outdoor seating area is great, and the view is pretty good too. Food was tasty, and the service was friendly. If you order a truffle dish they shave the truffle directly onto the food in front of you. My... More

On a recent visit to Spello we were looking for a nice lunch. Tucked away from the main street this restaurant has a lovely terrace with great views. Excellent antipasti, prima and dolce to choose from all enjoyed over a bottle of prosecco

The meal (quality of food) was spectacular! We had eaten here once before, but this meal was better. We ate outside and the view is quite nice. They were busy (because of the flower festival), but the staff was attentive and good. If you can actually acquire a reservation for this restaurant, DO dine here.

Last night of our 5 night stay in Spello we decided to eat at the Porta Venere. Checked out the terrace and it had perfect views. No menu in English, but the waiter was very obliging in translating from Italian. The food, service and setting were wonderful. Would recommend this restaurant.

Ate with 5 friends on a bicycling trip across Italy. The pasta pomodoro was the best I have had in my life. Nice wine selections, too. Friends had the ravioli and absolutely loved it, then ordered the pasta pomodoro after hearing my raving about it. This was during the same meal. The view was so gorgeous, but the inside of... More
