“Top aperitif place in Assisi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Ok guys and gals ... this is THE PLACE for the aperitif and listen ... not only for wine aperitif, they have also the St. Francis (San Francesco friars beer that is one of the best beer in the word in my hopinion ... don't miss the cured meat mix, the homebread and the Pecorino cheese, this is SUPERB! If you are in Assisi don't miss the opportunity to have to most intensive food experience of your life!

“Third time WAS the CHARM!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Third year in a row that we have been to Assisi and of course we had to go to Bibenda!! In fact we went twice this time. Nila, the owner, is fabulous. She made the visit wonder with great wind and snacks. She assisted my wife in getting a case of wine that we experienced the year before and shipped it to the USA for us. Great atmosphere, wonderful wine bar, but most of all Nila is the BEST!! Thanks Nila for another wonderful time at Bibenda!! Ciao!

“One of the highlights of my trip to Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

I visited Bibenda during a recent family vacation to Italy, which provided wonderful balance during our day trip to Assisi. We sat and enjoyed our charming hostess, and a selection of her wonderful wines served with lovely local cheeses and prosciutto to renew our palates, after exploring some of the wonderful sights in the famous "city of peace." Nila knows wine, and she has a great selection of both local table wines to enjoy during the trip and premium and reserve wines from several regions of Italy to take home as souvenirs. My brother, who is a vinophile, was able to get an aerator, which he hadn't been able to find at several fine wine shops in the states. All this, while enjoying a respite from the heat of the afternoon in her atmospheric shop in a wine cellar with a vaulted brick ceiling. Both the beautiful 'mountain town' of Assisi and Bibenda were highlights of our trip to Italy.

“true gem of a wine bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Bibenda is a lovely wine bar in a perfect setting. Up the road from the commune, or main piazza, you go down a stone street and see a couple of tables under the stone arch. These are part of Bibenda's special charm. As soon as you enter, you meet Nila, the owner and wine sommelier extraordinaire. My daughter and I visited last summer, and when we returned today, she greeted us with a warm welcome. Nila is so knowledgeable about wine and makes you feel so special in her beautiful cantina. Painted in lovely script along the wall is this motto: Un calice di vino che ti porta scoperto del mondo. A chalice of wine is your door to discovery of the world.

“Not to be missed!! The owner is the try gem of this location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this location by a server in Rome. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. The owner, Nila, was so warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. She served us fabulous wine and cheese and welcomed us with open arms. The selection of wine is tremendous and the atmosphere is to die for. You must support Nila upon your next trip to Assisi! This spot is not to be missed!
