peace, perfect peace

We have visited several times, both summer and enter. In winter it is very cosy inside and complement the hearty steaks. In summer the courtyard is peaceful - well, it was a place of retreat - and the tables look beautiful, dressed in their white linen. Food? You could not be anywhere but Italy... read more

Beautiful restaurant that I go to every year and enjoy introducing to friends. Lovely hostess who is very professional and charming. The food is excellent as is the setting.

We enjoyed il convent. Neither terrible nor fantastic but a place we would have returned to had it been open on the Monday night. Pizza was ok.

We visited Il Convento on the recommendation of friends we met on holiday in Umbria and crtainly weren't disappointed. We (2 adults and 2 children, 4 and 7) visited for lunch on a Sunday. The weather was scorchio but the shady, umbrella lined courtyard offered a wonderful setting for the meal; just be careful where the sunshine moves to though... More

An unhurried perfect lunch for three of us in the flower filled courtyard, attentive staff, superb local foods and wines all making for a memorable couple of hours . Have visited 3 times now over a few years and service remains the same. Recommend it with confidence.

Fantastic food in a stunning setting. The lovely hostest was patient with our basic italian. Try the balsamic beef and the pasta with the creamy cheese sauce. I will never be able to cook pasta to my husband satisfaction again!

We love the medieval setting, great local food, great parking. In the summer there is also a nice outdoor, unless of course there are smokers around, but that is true anywhere in Italy. This is our favorite spot for impromptu dates and even special occasions.

We stumbed upon this restaurant by chance. We were in Perugia this Easter, and on Saturdaynight almost all decent restaurants were closed. So we decided to go and see the beatiful old Corciano, but since the children were very hungry, we opted for a resurant at once. We folloed a sigh 'Il convento' and were amased by its cuisine and...

We have had an amazing evening soaking up a real taste of Italy in Il Convento. The food was fantastic and we felt we were not rushed between courses....but were not in any way neglected either. We enjoyed it so much we look forward to returning tomorrow evening to sample more of what they have to offer.
