It was our 2nd time eating here and it didn't let us down. The service is really friendly and professional, the location with the tables outside (due to covid) is really cozy. But the real value is in the food, the dishes, the ingredients. It's...kind of unusual to find such good fish in a place with no sea, but apparently they have really good fish suppliers in Italy and abroad that provide fresh fish everyday. I really recommend this place.More

We wanted some variety from more traditional Umbrian cuisine so we headed out for some fish. We had a really fresh and tasty meal. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco and the service was friendly. The waiter insisted I had a selfie with...my lobster! It was a shame that the restaurant was quite empty on a Friday night (admittedly out of season and with covid restrictions) as it lacked a bit of atmosphere, but that can only be helped by encouraging more people to check it out! Highly recommended for fuss-free fresh seafood.More

The service was very good! The waiter was especially friendly to our little child, who was very impressed by the waiter. The decorations on the wall were very nautical and cute. The idea behind the restaurant is to bring a bit of Napoli to Spoleto....The cook drives twice a week for 4-6 hours back and forth, to buy the freshest fish on the market in Napoli. We immediately tasted the quality of the fish, and were very impressed. The best food we've eaten so far in Umbria!More

Taste of italy, not a “touristic” kind of place, perfect if you want to discover the real taste of italy. Partenope a Spoleto, la bellezza di poter viaggiare senza dover lasciare la propria città. Great food, great wine.

Calamari was to die for; the service excellent and the lemon sorbet out of this world. Will make this a favourite for sure.

Set back a short distance off the main street this is a restaurant NOT to be missed. Definitely wort h the short walk. The meals were fantastic and the furnishings created a great atmosphere. The prices of the meals were surprisingly inexpensive for such great...quality. I had the linguine lobster which was to die for followed by the fried calamari. My friends had the risotto followed by the cod - all of which they loved.All generous serves. Do NOT miss the french fries - they are divine. We had a local white wine which we all enjoyed. Thank you to the young chef and owner for a great seafood meal experience. Thoroughly recommend for a great night out.More

Don’t let the relatively long distance from the sea fool you, there is still lovely fish to be had! We had lovely primi piatti of lobster linguini and seafood risotto, followed by “frittura di paranza” - that’s basically catch of the day, coated in flour...and lightly fried. Seriously packed with flavours, so we’d definitely recommend it (ask if it’s available as it’s not on the menu). Lastly, some beautiful semifreddo. White wine was cooled, service was beautiful - all and all a fantastic food experience.More

We did not have the opportunity to eat a lot of fish in Umbria. Therefore, this restaurant was a delight. Well grilled fish, nice atmosphere (love the quotes on the walls). Recommended when you like fish !
