Restaurant
Via Arco di Druso, 11 , Spoleto; Tel.: 0743-47121; cell 339-3988288
"The Temple of Taste" showcases owner-chef Eros Patrizi's skills in the kitchen. He was dubbed one of the best young chefs present at the Istituto Gianfranco Vissani; in addition, he is a professional sommelier and a qualified olive oil taster. Umbrian truffles feature in many dishes on the menu - the tortelli stuffed with ricotta and caprino in a sauce of truffles and cheese is a dish fit for a king. The wine list is excellent, and the service professional and never obtrusive. Reservations recommended.
