This was one of the few places that our hotel owner recommended so we went looking for it on our first night. We found it but it was fully booked. We managed to make a booking for the next night and subsequently for our last night in Perugia. On the two nights we ate there, we saw dozens of people... More

This is what Italian wining and dining is all about. Esp. the hand-made pasta with truffle, cold meats on a bed of leaves, roast pork and local wine... The biscuits dipped in sweet wine were divine ‘Nough said! Pleasure and delight of the 7th heaven.

When we called to reserve a table there were no tables outside left, so we accepted a table inside. But we were lucky: upon arrival a table outside had been canceled and we got it. The restaurant is just a bit off the beaten track in a steep side street. We loved the dramatic setting of the terrace, against the... More

To describe this restaurant is like trying to describe your favorite book or movie. There are a lot of "good" films/books our there that really do one or two things great, but when you find one that hits positively on all marks, you are left in awe. That's what Osteria A Priori was for us. A combination of exceptional hits,... More

The first evening we found that place as it was next to our hotel. At the end we never ate anywhere else. Great food - nice service.

Altho it might not look like a restaurant with enough room go inside. The food is local, fresh meats, cheeses, pasta and their "biologic" wine is wonderful. Lunch was a great meal.... full of new tastes, flavors and textures. Very affordable

Fantastico. Evening meal here after a recommendation from our local contact. We were (correctly) advised to book as Friday night can be busy. The entrance is a very unprepossessing wine shop with a small number of seating places within the shop. Not to worry they have seating upstairs for 30 or so covers and probably 30 or so seated outside... More
