Excellent local wine knowledge

Really enjoyed this place. The knowledgable staff helped us select an excellent local wine that fitted our taste perfectly. Highly recommended for a pre or after dinner drink.

We visited here to do a wine tasting but you needed to book. However were given a selection of wines to choose from and a detailed background to each one. We visited here a couple of times during our stay and enjoyed our time. The bar lady was extremely helpful and hospitable.

Get ready for a fun and spontaneous evening! We enjoyed a wine tasting and food with a couple from Taiwan, whom we had never met, but by the end of the evening, everyone agreed it was one of the most interesting experiences of their trips. We also learned about the native grapes and wines in Umbria, so thanks, Nila!

Don't leave Assisi without stopping into Bibenda wine bar for a glass (or two) of Arnadola Caprai 2014 Grecetto from Umbria. I normally don't drink white wine but Nile, the wine bar owner, suggested I give the Umbrian wine a try. I've been back to Bibenda Assisi every night for the last few days. Aside from speaking English (a huge... More

We came here by recommendation by some friends from Sweden. It was simply a pleasure to meet the owner, drinking some great wine and enjoying the atmosphere. It's a must while visiting Assisi and Umbria!

Visited several times. Very good selecton of wines and liquors, paired with tasty and generous portions of local delicacies. Surprisingly, we found local artisinal beer here and leaned a lot about it from very knowledgeable English~speaking owner. Seatings are comfortale, both inside and at the palio. Highly recommended!

Every year my travel business brings a few groups through Assisi, and Bibenda Assisi Wine Bar is always a trip highlight for all of my special guests. This June Nila hosted a private Umbrian wine tasting for my 12 VIPs. She guided our palates through the very best award winning wineries that Umbria can offer, and pared each tasting with... More

There is a reason this place is #1 on Tripadvisor and that reason is the lovely lady - Nila - behind the bar. First off, she really knows her stuff and remembers what you like and don't like (we went there several times during our stay) and will recommend new things based on your preferences. Her collection is extensive and... More

Nila is still there looking ever more welcoming and part of the city; a cool, homely spot in a busy city. Tucked into a quiet corner very close to the busiest piazza - therein one - Nila has a refuge form the summer heat and tourists. Beautiful Nila knows all about the wines of Umbria and Italy an deserves with... More

We stayed in Assisi for a week and this cozy place became a regular place we visited almost every evening. We couldn't resist the wonderful sample of wines to sample, the great music that gave a wonderful feel, and also to visit the lovely Nila. She has a great knowledge of wines, but also is so super to chat the... More
