This is a cosy wine bar in a quaint area of the city. A wide range of superb wines on offer along with a range of cheese options as well as a few meat cuts. It is not a restaurant in the traditional sense of the word but a great place to spend an evening or afternoon (preferably without your... More

This is a 'must stop' when you are visiting Assisi. The wine selection is wonderful and Nila makes the experience complete with her extensive knowledge of wines and genuine conversation. It was truly a pleasure spending time in her company. And soooo dog friendly, our little dog was content laying by our feet all night. Food was great, we will... More

We stopped here for some wine and a snack. The lovely young woman was so knowledgeable about the wines and we loved the ones she suggested. We ended up purchasing a bottle to take with us.

Wonderful selections of local wines. I tried a local red from Montefalco Sagrantino 2012. Wonderful full body red. The service was great and I can't wait to come back again to try some more great wines. A fun snack called Taralli with fennel. They look like little doughnut crackers.

Great experience. Nila, the owner is charming and knowledgeable. Great advice on Italian wines. Good selection of offerings. Nice assortment of cheeses and meats to nibble on. Nila has Chef Marco Gubbiotti, who has one Michelin star, prepare a few different appetizers and deserts each day. Highly recommended. Try the Gianfranco Fino Es. A 2014 Primitivo that is unbelievable. Worth... More

This is a great place to learn about the wines of Italy. My husband and I visited the small but thoughtfully and richly stocked enoteca a few days ago. We were greeted by the owner who was absolutely charming and knowledgeable about her wines. She spent quite some time answering our questions and giving us some background as to what... More

Bibenda Assisi is perfect for a break in your travels in Umbria. Nila is very welcoming and friendly. She enjoys sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for local wines. Visit her and tell her that we said hello, that we will remember Bibenda long after our visit to Assisi.

We stopped here for drinks before dining at the excellent restaurant next door. The owner was charming and very knowledgeable about the local wines. We had such a good evening here and at the restaurant next door that we went back again the next evening and were greeted like old friends. I would not really describe Bibenda as a restaurant...

My husband and I found this gorgeous wine bar by accident. We enjoyed local wine, cheese and salami, all wonderfully described by the owner. Wonderful surprise!!

The rustic-chic WINE BAR BIBENDA ASSISI is relaxing and warm atmosphere to enjoy your stay in Assisi. Here you could taste ASSISI and UMBRIA WINE produced by top wineries pared with tasting plates of the very best artisanal food : OLIVE OIL, COLD MEAT and CHEESES like wild boar, deer salami or black pork, well-aged cheeses, such as Canestrato from ASSISI (that cheese recently won the title of "BEST PECORINO CHEESE" at a major European competition). Doesn't that all sound yummy? We offer a CERTIFICATE INTENSIVE SOMMELIER COURSE and WINE TASTING ASSISI and UMBRIA WINE to individuals or groups in ENGLISH or RUSSIAN.
