“Outstanding food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Came here for lunch on a day trip to Perugia. I was with my husband and little boy. I can't comment on how family friendly the restaurant was as he slept the whole way through! We had fresh pasta with black truffle and crostini with truffle pate for first course and veal in a truffle sauce and lamb with herbs for second course. Everything tasted amazing. The service was excellent and the chef was very friendly. We will definitely try to return before we go home!

“Delectable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We were in the city of Perugia for the day and decided early to make reservations at this restaurant. So glad we did, we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent, the best we've had while in Tuscany and Umbria for 2 weeks. The staff was attentive and the food was top notch, not your run of the mill Italian cafe. A nice quiet respite in the middle of a busy city.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

3 of us spent 2 weeks in Perugia in September and ate three times at La Taverna. We would have liked to have more meals there but we wanted to experience other restaurants.
All the different dishes we tried were excellent, particularly the ravioli and the pasta with truffles, the sausages, the lamb, the bacio mousse. They are very generous with the truffles shavings. The maître d' was helpful with his recommendations of the wine and we found the service prompt and efficient. It helped that the weather was good and we could sit outside but the internal rooms looked very charming and elegant. Not particularly cheap but we thought that, given the quality and the quantity of the food on offer, it was money well spent. When we go back to Perugia we'll head straight for La Taverna. Highly recommended.

“Good restaurant near the centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We went to this restaurant as a group on two occasions. The first time we were probably the last group to leave the restaurant and we were crammed onto two tables outside. The second time we were inside on a much larger table. Service is generally good without being too friendly. The food is well cooked without being exceptional in quality or presentation. Quantities are usually very large.
The average price we paid with wine was Euro 50 per head which is quite high. The bill was handwritten and also wasn't detailed so frankly you couldn't tell if it was correct or not. There is no excuse for not having an EPOS system in this day and age.
Generally we all enjoyed these meals and would return.
