Picchio Verde (the Green Woodpecker) is the kind of family trattoria you always want to stumble upon. It is a bit away from the main tourist traffic in Gubbio and attracts a largely local crowd. The other customers and the staff all seemed to know one another. But foreign visitors like ourselves get an equally warm greeting. For value and... More

During our brief stay in Gubbio, we ate here twice! Are we boring ? I think not. The food is amazing, the staff exceptionally friendly and the atmosphere warm and welcoming. The house made pasta is incredible, nicely complemented by incredible sauces (I had fresh truffles both times ); the fresh artichokes amazing and the patate frittes ( yep, I... More

What a great restaurant! We had an amazing meal with wonderful service and a lovely atmosphere. We sat facing the open grill (not a BBQ like the States )and watched them grill all types of meats perfectly moving the embers from the fire while serving everyone in the restaurant at the same time. Our handmade pastas were perfection as well... More

All the dishes we chose, with the help of the young lady who was the daughter of the owners, were good. The wine was also an excellent choice. The restaurant is also located in a quite and delightful street. A good choice in Gubbio.

Picchio Verde, which means Green Woodpecker, is tucked away just outside the popular centre of Gubbio. Like so many upscale(-ish) restaurants in this region, the interior looks quite amazing: stylish, polished and classical. We were drawn by the high number of locals having lunch in this restaurant. The service was good with some of the staff even speaking English. We... More

Bad quality food, not really traditional dishes (prosciutto more than ordinary, not to say horrible - you could smell rotten meat, crescia badly cooked...) the waiter tried to tell us they serve first quality food according to the local tradition... But we do know as they eat in Gubbio and we believe any eugubino ( a man or a woman... More

We had a very nice meal for 8 today at this restaurant which I booked at 10 minutes notice. The waitress could not have been more pleasant, friendly and helpful. The price was very reasonable with particularly excellent pasta. The house wines both white and red were good and cheap too. I was very impressed, if we ever come to... More

I recommended by a friend to dine at Picchio Verde while we were visiting Gubbio which is a charming medieval town . I'm so glad that I took her advice. The restaurant which is family-run is in a quiet area of Gubbio away from the main touristic part of the town. We were told to arrive at the restaurant no... More
