Spello: Ristorante Porta Venere

Via Torri de Properzio, 3 , Phone: 0742 301896

Reviewed by: teaberry from PA, review #3233

When: 2009

One of our favorite meals in Spello - lovely atmosphere, attentive service, great food.

We happened upon this little gem by chance. Lucky us - we were immediately charmed by the complimentary prosecco brought to our table while ordering, followed by some delicious homemade breadsticks. Our server spoke impeccable English, and was happy to translate and help us with our selections.

One of my favorite dishes was the wild asparagus and pasta, which was much thinner, greener, and more flavorful than typical asparagus. My husband loved his dishes, too, but right now I can't seem to remember what he ordered! For dessert, we shared fruits of the season, which were in a beautiful presentation and included thin little cookies for accompaniment.

Reasonable prices, warm and friendly ambiance, super clean, attentive service, and about 50 yards from Porta Venere. Highly recommended.
