“Tourist trap!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

This place has overpriced and mediocre wine, and they keep trying to sell you things during your time there! A couple things went wrong during our visit, and so when the waitress came out at the end of our meal offering us each to choose a local chocolate to complete our meal we were pleased with the nice gesture, but then she tried to charge us 1.50 each for them! The only redeeming factor was that when we complained, she took them off the bill.

You would be better walking around Assisi with no recommendation to go off of and just reading menus and choosing a place on your own than you would be seeking out this tourist trap.

This June we will be in Assisi again so we must go back to Bibenda Assisi! The last two years we have been to Bibenda on our visits to Assisi and we will definitely return to see Nila. She is wonderful and the wine and food are fantastic!! So the third time will be the charm. Love you Nila!

“Amazing wine and service”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I had come from New Zealand and this place had the best hospitality I have seen on my trip. Nila was amazing and speaks very good English she made me feel very welcome with good conversation. She also recomended a great wine called Monastero San Biagio which is a great organic wine locally produced. I have tried many wines around the world and this red is just delightful. Highly recommend to stop here on your visit to Assisi.

“Great Wine and friendly Owner”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

I visited Bibenda Assisi with a group of about 25 people in the fall of 2011; our guide had arranged a private wine tasting for us. Nila was friendly and patient with us, and answered all the questions from those in our group who were wine novices. Those of us who love wine purchased several bottles from Nila and she even delivered them to our hotel. I am returning to Italy in late May, with some of the same group of people, and we are all looking forward to visiting Bibenda once again and experiencing Nila's hospitality and great wine!
