I've been here three or four times now and it's always good. Tonight was really busy with a huge table who ordered just before us, but the service and food were impeccable.
There's a nice atmosphere too. Friendly and not too formal.
While the quality is good, its nothing special to write home about. The owner lives on past glory, appears to have more money than common sense and is milking the business for all its got. Portions are small and well overpriced. The owner is smug...and arrogant. Honestly, avoid the place. There are so many other places in the area which provide all one would expect from a quality restaurant, like Chateaux du Pepe, cheaper, by far better quality, proper market price and for sure courtesy abounds. Eat here at your peril.More
This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The food was excellent as the quality of the ingredients were fresh and unpretentious. As soon as you walk in the restaurant you feel welcome and know you’re going to have a delicious meal. The decor is inviting as...well as the staff. The meal from beginning to end was delicious. Al Palazzaccio da Piero is an absolute gem!More
On our 1000km Giro d'Italia cycle ride, en route between Terni and Perugia, we were looking for somewhere for a simple lunch? Here, at Al Palazzaccio da Piero, we discovered that Italian's don't do simple lunches. We were given the warmest welcome by the three...sisters, that told us they'd been there for 50 years, and swore by the provenance of the food that they served. So much so, they gave me a tour of their vegetable garden, and the best tomatoes that I have ever tasted! With such fabulous ingredients, the food that was served was beyond compare. Bravo!More
This is not a fancy place, but rather very comfortable and welcoming. The food is fresh, rustic and made with great care. We like it so much we ate there 3 times in a week. In fact if I lived near here we would eat...there every week. Service is efficient friendly, but relaxed. Its kind of quirky that they have very little signage and unless u know exactly where it is you won't find it, but if you can you certainly should eat there.More
Michael and Jill Tucker, in their book, Living in a Foreign Language, mention a restaurant near Spoleto, Umbria. It was about the only book on Italy in our little town's library. Coincidentally, we were heading to Spoleto - so we were determined to find it....And that was some of what it took. A combination of the Volvo GPS, WAZE, Google Maps & Earth plus a lot of discussion took us in circles trying to find another restaurant mentioned in the book - the stars must have aligned and suddenly - we saw the sign for Al Plazzaccio. Yes, the sisters were great and their mother waved us into the restaurant from upstairs as we walked in. Theresa recommended the local pasta - no eggs - topped with shaved truffles. I basically put grated cheese on everything except breakfast cereal but she said that wasn't the way its done on this dish. I've never had any truffle dish, and have to say it was an indescribably rich yet delicate flavor. Wonderful! (see the pictures for more specifics).More
We visited the three sisters on our last night in Italy. After reading about them in Michael Tucker's book, LIVING IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE we knew we wanted to eat there. Our hosts were absolutely lovely--they tolerated our choppy Italian and helped us order. As...fans of trying the house wine, we were not disappointed by their offerings.
Our kids loved playing with the restaurant's cats, and were delighted when they found a kitten out in front. Sitting outside is a wonderful experience, provided you are not bothered by cigarette smoke. If so, sit inside.More
We were told to try this restaurant our by a friend, so we did. It is run by 3 sisters, all very nice. The restaurant has a feeling like you are in your own home. Everything we tried on the menu was outstanding. But I...have to mention in particular the Fettuccine with boar ragù, I don't think I can put into words how great it was. Absolutely amazing! I would recommend this place to everyone.More
Okay, this place is so good it’s hard to be believed. Highly recommended by friends who own a home outside Spoleto, it’s the perfect family-run Umbrian trattoria - moderately priced, extraordinary food, and the three sisters who run the place make you feel totally at...home. It has a beautiful outdoor garden which is open from early May to September, weather depending. We ate here four times in one week! Killer pastas include divine homemade ravioli w/ fresh artichokes (ravioli ai carciofi); eggplant ravioli (ravioli letizia) in a heavenly sauce of olives, capers, tomatoes, and shavings of parmigiano; spaghetti with a delicious, aromatic tomato sauce (alla benedettina); and tortellini w/ local black truffles and cream (tortellini panna tartufo). For a main course, try the perfectly grilled lamb chops drizzled w/ olive oil (scottadita d’agnello); the braised chicken and/or roast beef (brasato) with truffles; or the charcoal grilled filet of beef (bistecca). They have exceptional vegetable dishes including fried potatoes, roasted tomatoes; whole braised artichokes (carciofi all romana); and arugula salad w/ shavings of parmigiano (insalata di rucola). And don’t forget to ask for the exquisite ricotta cheesecake topped with wild berries (torta di ricotta) for dessert. Mamma mia, we could eat here every day for the rest of time!!!!More
