My husband and I were driving back to Perugia and stopped in Spello for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We both ordered the special - pasta with asparagus...perfetto! The owners were delightful and all in all it was a wonderful meal that we have continued to talk about.

On our stroll around Spello we met a lovely local couple Who suggested we check out his nephews restaurant. So glad we followed their recommendation! The gnocchi with the red wine sauce, a must try. Had the pannacotta for desert and their local wine. Lovely experience with a kind waitress!!!

This place, just outside the town walls, is locaties near a roundabout so the terrace outside is a bit noisy (but still okay). Food is nice, especially the pizza's. The service however was a bit weird, dishes order did not come out of the kitchen at the same time. My wife's pizza came out 10 minutes later than mine. This was the case for every table. So a bit of a weird strategy. Therefore, only 3 stars.

Our Italian is limited to about 20 words and the waitress could not speak any English. However, she was friendly and patient and we ended up having a meal that our kids absolutely loved and we also really enjoyed. The antipasti was delicious, the pasta dishes great and the main meat dishes nicely cooked and well seasoned. My son was also impressed with the pizza. The desserts were fantastic too - best panna cotta and caramel I have had. The restaurant is just outside the main walls of Spello and we were the only non italians there. If you want something casual and unpretentious then this is a great option.

On our last night in Spello we decided to try this little Osteria just outside the old walls. A strange location, perhaps, but an excellent choice. All our meals were absolutely delicious and featured local produce simply prepared and served straight from the kitchen by friendly staff. Being a non-meat eater, I was concerned that there would not be much on offer. However, I was offered a variation on their tagliatelle tartufo (truffle) that included zucchini and zucchini flowers - a superb combination of flavours and much appreciated! A perfect end to our Spello sojourn.
