Recommended by the tourist office round the corner, but the food was no more than OK, the people weren't welcoming and service was slow. Prices not exorbitant but still higher than expected.

Visited for lunch but ended more like dinner. The servings are large and very tasty. The service was attentive and fast. The prices are average for area.

It's not the worst place to be but not the best too. The lentil soup was good, the polenta wasn't. The athmosphere was ok, it wasn't that busy on a tuesday night. You get what you pay for, and that's it.

My wife and I have eaten here several times, over a period of some fifteen years, with and without friends, and always enjoy the solid, simple and good-tasting home cooking style.

Spent a wonderful day exploring Spoleto. Definitely returning for the trekking next year. Came down the hill and happened upon Trattoria Festival. What a treat. Wood fireplace and ultimate attention. Great food, had veal and lamb. Service and meal were delights. Very intimate and family like. You could easily walk by but DON'T!

Good eats, Meals in the mid-range pricing. Service was not super friendly but attentive enough, and so a decent option to consider.

This is a modest yet charming little establishment just a "poco distanza" out of the main piazza where most of the tourists gravitate. Take the few extra steps and discover the Roman gateway just down from which you will find this place. The decor is not "flash"..it is curiously endearing however and the restaurant is welcoming, homey and cheery. The... More

The service was excellent (Dina) and her English was very accommodating. Great ambiance. I had one of the pasta dishes with tomatoes...just superb! She brought out a lentil soup that was magnificent. This is a fantastic restaurant and, as an aside, underpriced. Visit this great town Spoleto (we covered much of Umbria) and have lunch or dinner here as the... More

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner here with friends. We were given a couple of things to try before our ordered meal arrived. Everything was very tasty. The recommended wine was the best we've had in Spoleto. The mushrooms with truffles were delicious. Service was fantastic in a lovely rustic setting. And the complimentary biscuits and digestive were a great finish to... More

Attentive staff, but their English was poor. We ate gnocchi with butter and salvie (swimming in fat and soggy), selection of bruschetta (soggy), escalope with lemon (also dripping in fat, tasteless and soggy), pork chop (without seasoning). Poor selection of wines. We see that this restaurant has gotten many great reviews, so maybe the chef was on vacation?
