The menu range though limited had meals that were very tasteful and to my understanding reflecting local produce. The house red was a good local wine and good companion to the meals

It is placed in one of the most famous streets of the city center of Perugia, via dei Priori. The service is good and quick,waiters are nice to costumers. It offers the typical products of the region, portions are big; the proportion quality- price is fair. There's a great selection of wines too.

Ok. I'm Italian and Italian is my favorite cuisine, but I think that this is one of the best foos I've ever tried in my life. Ravioli with brasato and red onions were the best choice ever. Wine and beers (I ordered an arlrtiginal Indian pale ale) were fantastic. Prices super affordable. Just go there!

Osteria a Priori specialises in Umbrian food which is as good as it is simple. No frills dishes but fresh ingredients with a great taste leave you longing for more. The antipasti which included hand carved ham, salami and an assortment of cheese was a great start. The hand made pasta and roasted pork with truffles was memorable, too. We... More
