San Lorenzo Restaurant

A Beautiful Restaurant

The Art of Food

We are proud of our culinary heritage in Umbria and here at the San Lorenzo we try our very best to uphold the traditional recipes and cooking techniques in the creation of our ever changing menu.  The family run San Lorenzo restaurant  – located inside the Hotel Clitunno – has been run by the Tomassoni family for 3 generations.  Extremely popular with everyone from hotel guests, locals and international tourists we suggest that you book your table early in order to avoid disappointment.   Our speciality dishes are  follow a seafood theme and indeed the menu is very rich in fish dishes and seafood favourites… if you are unsure what to order why not try our degustation menu or “tasting menu” where you can try a little bit of several dishes.

The ambience is a light- filled dining room and shared comunal terrace with the hotel which looks out onto the square.  Our chef is constantly changing the menu in order to provide a gastronomic experience which changes according to the seasons and which produce is most appropriate… you can find traditional Umbrian dishes served together with other not so menu stream choices … authentic Umbrian dishes served with a contemporary twist. 

The Chef

Owner and Chef Giovanna Tomassoni has been a top chef for over 30 years…. Regularly invited to the USA for the Umbrian Food Festival Giovanna’s claim to fame was that she made Michelle Obama her favourite dish – “Strangozzi alla Carbonara” which was made with quail eggs, artichokes and truffle.  This event occurred in the “La Spiaggia” restaurant in Chicago (Michelle Obama’s favourite Italian restaurant)…  Every year she visits the USA to partecipate and promote Umbrian cuisine in the Spoleto Umbria USA food festival which is held in various locations throughout America.

The American gourmet magazine The Local Palate ( asked Giovanna to represent Umbria and Spoleto for the gastronomic event “Toast to Spoleto” in Charleston in the beautiful state of Southern Carolina. The event was hosted by Giulio and Donatella Della Porta owners of the the hidden countrship in Charleston which promotes great food in both Charleston and in Umbria… this mutual food love affair can only benefit both regions and represents a wonderful opportunity for cross country culinary experiences.

Giovanna is now has her attention clearly focused on the San Lorenzo restaurant here in Spoleto but feel free to ask her anything you like about the dishes and Umbrian cuisine on offer.
