Osteria del Trivio, Spoleto
Tel: 39 074 344 349
Concierge.com's insider take:
We're still waiting for Spoleto to come up with a must-eat-there restaurant along the lines of L'Asino d'Oro in Orvieto, but until then, the Osteria del Trivio, a Slow Foodmovement place in a lane just off steep Corso Garibaldi, will have to do. In a dining room with red-checked tablecloths and vintage black-and-white wall photos, diners tuck into first courses such as strangozzi (thick, hand-rolled spaghetti) with broad beans, pancetta, and pecorino cheese; and secondi like tender beef filet in a Sagrantino wine sauce. Regulars know to save room for cresciondaa special dessert pie made with almonds and dark chocolate. Service is attentive, though slightly gruff.
Closed Tuesdays and the month of January.
