Had a good dinner here with my colleague. The waiter new alot about wines from the region and he advised us a very good reasonable priced wine. We had typical prosciutto's from the region and a nice pasta. Good atmosphere!

Reasonable food but you will be hungry if you only order a main course. One of our group who ordered the lamb subsequently ordered a starter because the portion was so small. Vegetables are scant. You can't check the bill because it doesn't detail each item thus while we thought we'd been overcharged, we weren't sure. Gladly when we went... More

I had great red wine with Agnolotti al brasato. Heavenly experience. The dessert was also incredible.

This restaurant came recommended to us and did not disappoint. The food was wonderful, the staff welcoming and helpful. The ambiance was friendly and felt like the neighborhood favorite. The focus on local and fresh ingredients really shows in the delicious meal we enjoyed. By all means I highly recommend it if you are in Perugia.

A superb lunch with friends - wonderful selection of specialty, local produce (especially truffles!). Pleasant setting in the upstairs of a cool, stone building, surrounded by wine stock. Great place for a long, relaxing lunch.

Osteria a Priori serves pretty good food in a cool environment. For first courses I had the white ragu which was good and rich and my partner had matlagliati which was equally good. We shared the rolled lamb for a secondi which was good though not what i expected. I expected a larger piece and it was served sliced. Again,... More

We loved everything about this place. The food was great, the wine selection is great, and the owner and staff are great. We liked it so much we dined here twice in the five nights we stayed in Perugia. The decor is comfortable and creatively done, the food and wines sourced locally and sustainably. It was definitely one of the... More

We booked here after reading the reviews. The setting is very pleasant and minimalist. Staff were friendly and helpful, quite happy to explain anything we did not understand on the menu. I was quite disappointed by the food, the meat in my pasta sauce was quite tough and gristly. My partner had a much better pasta sauce and then a... More

We loved our evening at Osteria A Priori, we would never have found this restaurant if it wasn't for the owner of our B&B in Perugia. We were so lucky to secure a booking at very short notice on a Saturday afternoon. Reservations are a must. The restaurant specialises in local wine and fresh local produce. Our waitress was an...
