The opening a couple years ago of Osteria Dello Sportello in nearby Casteldilago was a welcome addition to dining in and around our town of Arrone and the nearby Cascata delle Marmore. It's beautiful stone stairwell lead upwards to tables tucked initimatly into landings as you climb and beyond, into softly lit rooms suitable for all sizes of parties. The ambience alone gives this place a 10!

Add to its beauty, the quintessentially prepared Umbrian cuisine you will enjoy and you have an osteria experience not to be missed!

So many fantastic dishes to recommend but quite frankly I rarely need to go past the enormous, multi-plated antipasto they serve at dello Sportello... it is amazing! Platters of salumi and cheeses are teamed with a grated potato hash brown and soft scrambled egg top with truffle and then followed by a warm fava puree also topped with heaping portions of truffle. Barlotti beans in a delicate sauce, a very tasty farro salad, bruschetta with sweet & juicy tomatoes and more toasted bread simply drizzled with a fragrant green olive oil... the combination is all that is needed for a divinely heady meal. Well there is wine necessary, but their list is awesome so no worries there!

The staff is delightful and warmly attentive though you will never at all feel rushed. Parking is a little sketchy... be advised you should park on the level below the restaurant and walk up the hill as there is no way to turn anything larger than a smart car at the top. LOL. Just park below and take in the fresh mountain air as you make your way to deliciousness!

Osteria dello Sportello needs to make your list for dining in and around Terni and southern Umbria!

There are too many words to say about here. But also the is just one word. "Perfect!" . Excellent atmosphere. Excellent menu ( try ravioli mozzarella with black truffles) ( also dessert) . Excellent dishes. Excellent staff ( smile faces, very fast service ) . Excellent bill ( they also make some discount without ask, and really good prices ) . I will go again and again as soon as possible . Enjoy

Amazing location, wonderful atmosphere, best courtesy ever. We have been here twice and we'll certainly come back soon. Menu is somewhat limited in choices but quality is just awesome: true Italian cuisine with local specialities and wines. The appetizer is huge but it certainly worth trying. The first time we have been here we had just the appetizer and dessert, and we were really satisfied. The second time we skipped some of the appetizers to have the other courses and again were very happy. All of this for a quite fair price too!

ITA: Ristorante in una location bellissima, tutta in pietra, che si snoda all'interno delle vie del bellissimo paesino di Castel Di Lago, in Valnerina, proprio dietro la cascata più alta d'Europa: la Cascata delle Marmore. Cibo tipico umbro, si nota la scelta ingredienti genuini e di qualità.
Da non perdere!

ENG: Wonderful location, in the Valnerina hills, just 3' from the Marmore Falls (the highest falls in Europe). The restaurant, all in stone wall, has been constructed into the alleys of the wonderful little town of Caste di Lago. The cuisine is the typical Umbrian one, you may notice the choice of the quality and genuine ingredients.
Enjoy it soon!
