We walked from Spello to Collepino along the aqueduct path. Great walk, easy at first but last half hour was extremely steep and rocky. We were very glad to get a seat at the restaurant and were all very hungry for a big lunch. We all had different selections from the grilled meats and all were fantastic. Served with sautéed...

Food is amazing. The owner is the coolest. Had house pasta which was paparadelle with porcini, other fungi, truffles and bits of some kind of meat maybe boar enveloped in a rustic earthy yummy coating that I can't describe. When I was choosing I asked the owner for suggestions. I have no Italian and he minimal English, so I just... More

In August we walked to Collepino from Spello and sat down for lunch at the Taverna. We just ordered two bowls of pasta off the a la carte menu at 8 euros each, a salad (4 euros), water and two coffees. The final bill? 45 euros. The bill just showed two "Menu a prezzo fisso". We had no idea that... More

Four of us recently went to Collepino and ate at this restaurant. First, the town is very small and very charming. It is almost abandoned as so few residents still live there. It's worth a walk around town. It's very clean with a lot of medieval character. The one and only restaurant is worth a drive to this town. The... More

If anybody says take the walk from Spello to Collepino and it is raining ignore them! My wife and I did in the rain and although we did enjoy the experience it would be better in the dry. However, at the end of approx 5km walk, wet and bedraggled we arrived at Collepino and walked into the Taverna. We were... More

Taverna San Silvestro is simply wonderful. Not only is the restaurant in an absolutely beautiful place....but the food and service is terrific. The young man who waited our table was friendly, knowledgable and accomodating. We highly recommend it.

We have been staying in the in the hilltop village of Collepino a few miles from Spello. The Taberna San Silvestro is the only restaurant in the village and we have just eaten there for the second time. The service is wonderfully personal and the food tonight was amazingly good. The fare is typically Umbrian with quality ingredients carefully prepared.... More

We were recommended to visit this restaurant by our Hotel, Le Silve at Armenzano. My wife and I visited on a Sunday, for lunch, and were both very impressed by the atmospheric cellar setting, the quiet, classy ambience, the attentive, friendly service and, above all, the superb cuisine. (The house red was pretty good, to cap it all). This is... More

Recently we were on a hiking tour of Italy and our group ate at Taverna San Silvestro. The experience was very enjoyable, we ate outside at big tables covered by umbrellas and that was fun. Plenty of food was available. Some was very good---I especially liked the 3 types of brushetta, but some of the food, I thought, was average--for... More

For many years now I have been eating at one of my favorite restaurants in the Village of Collepino, outside of Spello. My husband and I were there last night and had one of the best meals. The spotlessly clean friendly, restaurants offers a medieval architectural decor which creates a lovely and warm atmosphere. The husband serves together with his... More
