If you're staying in the castle, don't forget to have one of your dinners at the restaurant. Yes, the breakfast is in the same location, but the evening meal provides another view. The choices were delicious and the bread was so fresh!

The food and the local wine was amazing. We all loved it, and we had a lot of picky eaters from Beverly Hills. Only two waiters, but they were so nice that the late service didn't matter. The view of Perugia was beautiful. It was great.

We stayed in the castle and booked a dinner here on our arrival evening. While the menu was somewhat limited, there was still enough choice for both of our tastes. The pasta appetizer "Aromatica" was beyond amazing! We could easily have had it as a main plate. We both savoured our dinners of a lamb dish ( 2 different cuts)... More

We used the restaurant as we were staying in the hotel for one night. When we checked in we asked if the restaurant was baby friendly and were assured it was, and a reservation was made. We wondered why then, we were made to feel uncomfortable and unwanted when our 4 month old started babbling as babies do - he... More

Dear Rosa H, we are very sorry that you experience was so "umcomfortable". It's a really great defeat for us if our guest describes his experience with such words, especially if we are accused to be "baby unfriendly". This is a shame because anytime we host babies we try to do our best to help them and their parents to... More

We stayed at the Castello and ate dinner twice in the restaurant. The service was much better at dinner than breakfast. Food was very good indeed. Wine excellent. Not too pricey. The view of Perugia is lovely from the terrace. The only slight downside is that the newly built restaurant is very large, rather empty and slightly lacking in ambiance.

Any restaurant experience has at least three major components: food/drink, service and location/ambience. We can safely say the food was very good and especially worth trying if one wishes a different experience from the traditional Italian fare. The dishes here are on the inventive side, usually very nicely presented and, most importantly, tasty. They are also good value, when compared... More

I went to this restaurant with my aunt to celebrate an important night. We ate Parmigiana which was very good and not to heavy. After that we had meat and we drunk a very good wine from Umbria. Good service but above all, good atmosphere and the main Chef was very kind for having a little chat with us. Just... More

Normally, I try to avoid eating at my hotel as the food is typically mediocre at best. However, we gave this hotel's restaurant a try our first day in Perugia for lunch because we were tired and I was blown away by the food. I liked it so much we went back for dinner there that night and the following... More

Description
The simplicity of the home-made pasta, the fresh and genuine flavours from Umbria make special the cuisine of our restaurants.
Once seated in the cozy dining room or in the enchanting covered terrace, admiring a wonderful view on the countryside, you can taste the dishes inside an interesting gastronomic itinerary: it is like a constant research of emotions and sensations, from the palat to the heart.
