Highly recommended for diner in Perugia. We had the vegetarian options, the choice was okay given the overall small menu and the focus of Umbrian cooking on meat dishes. It was a great meal, and the local red wine to accompany it was excellent. We will come again next time we are in Perugia!

Absolutely perfect and very flavorful. Fresh ingredients and friendly waiters. We are vegan and could still find many delicious choices on the menu.

We stopped at this restaurant in a break from a full day of sightseeing in Perugia based on raves from friends. It didn't disappoint. It's a few steps down Via Priori off the square with the Fontana Maggiore. Family owned and operated. We started with an appetizer platter of fagiolina beans from Lake Trasimeno, a very soft omelet made with... More

As many others have said - book! The first night we tried there were no tables, but we were able to book for the following evening. Guidance on wine was great, the food was very good, and we got the chance to try the sweet passito wine with biscotti for dessert. All good!

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

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.
