“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I believe this is the best restaurant in Perugia. Food was very good and at a reasonable price. The restaurant is located in an ancient building, well preserved and charming place.Excellent service.
We were lucky to have jazz band playing in the restaurant that night.
la Taverna is my first choice in Perugia

“Best restaurant in Umbria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We found this great restaurant in June and returned in October with 18 people. We had lunch one day and the final dinner on a very busy Saturday night. There are not many restaurants who can reach the level of quality and service than La Taverna in Perugia. From the Chef to the servers, they created an atmosphere of elegance of true professional art of food and details in service. The entire group said, that this restaurant was by far the best in 8 days we spent time in Umbria. We will return to Umbria and visit this great restaurant again. Thanks for a good memory.

“Just not 5 for us ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The resto - in quiet street, nice decorated with wine cellar, quite big so can get noisy with some lively guests.

The food - we tried 4 different dishes and every one of them was really good. Can not complain about the deserts and suggested wine too...

The staff - they were...nice, with professional approach but the truth is they gave us feeling to rush with our meal because the restaurant had waiting list (basically). We also got forgotten - but OK that happens ...

In summary - we missed that good homelike Italian approach (we are use to in Italy), the cozy Italian style. It just felt like any other good restaurant somewhere eg. in US. Considering Italy being the place to tickle your gastronomical senses in Italian atmosphere we would not return to eat here. A bit over-rated (more for tourists atmosphere) we would say ...

“Outstanding in all ways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We absolutely loved our dining experience at this restaurant. We ate there two nights in a row, in fact!
First of all, the servers were wonderful. They were welcoming and knowledgeable/interested in suggesting food and wine selections. The chef/owner came out at the end of the evening (he was very funny and very excited about leaving the next day for a holiday in Palm Springs!)
The veal with black truffles was incredible and not to be missed.
Our favourite server was not working on the night of our return visit so one of our waiters decided on his own to phone her at home so she could chat with us about menu choices. (very funny and sweet)
