“Long overdue but never forgotten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

It was Septemeber 2012 that my partner and I spent a beautiful week in this amazing city and during that time had the privilege of some lovely and memorable evenings at Bibenda. Nila has to be one of the most engaging owner /hostesses I have ever encountered. She really did make us feel at home and so welcome that we felt like true friends by the time we had to leave. She is without doubt the most professional and knowledgable person with regard to her passion for fine wine and her ability to share same with her guests.
Lynda and I both feel that we will one day return to Assisi and when do we will make Bibenda and Nila our first stop. Thank you so much for Nila for helping to make our visit so memorable.

Bibenda Assisi is an extremely important addition to your experience in Assisi! It is the ideal place for those who are looking for a dstinguishable and memorable event! We absolutely recommend it! Centrally very well located, it offers a very pleasant atmosphere, fabulous variety of wines and the food is unbelievable! it is owned by Nila Halun, who is also a very impressive professional wine-educator!
DON'T MISS IT!!!!

“Wow... experience not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

This was a huge learning curve for my partner and I into understanding the qualities of wine. I would highly recommend booking this if you have an afternoon available in Assisi. The wine and cheese available at the testing have to be some of the most amazing I have had.

“Absolutely terrific!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I was recently in Assisi with friends and they introduced me to this terrific spot. Nila Halun, the proprietor, was extremely knowledgeable about wines and could not have been nicer. We were there for a solid week and we were there every night! The local meats and cheeses were terrific, and Nila's wine selections were the best I've ever had. A terrific place in every respect, and the perfect place to chill out and have terrific wine. I couldn't recommend it more.
