“Amazing, amazing and amazing”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

If you are in Gubbio, looking for amazing food, amazing service and amazing ambiance this is the place. Chef Ignazio is behind the scenes preparing amazing food - his personal touch and commitment to careful preparation with the highest quality of ingredients is evident in every dish. We were served by Elina and Damiano in our separate visits - both were impressive in their knowledge of local wines and beers as well as their impeccable service. Friendly and extremely professional. It is clear they share Ignazio's passion for ensuring their guests have the best experience possible. And as to the decor - you have two great choices; the formal restaurant is a beautiful space - impeccably finished and unique -- or, you can head up the spiral staircase to a more informal wine bar with outdoor seating in a quiet side street but the same amazing menu.

Our meals here were clearly at the top of our list during our 2 week stay across Italy - and when we come back, we are definitely returning here!

“Deserves Michelin rating!”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

We have been twice in one week which we rarely do but this restaurant is so deserving of repeated visits. A beautiful setting with vaulted brick ceilings, service from Alena that was extremely attentive as well as excellent suggestions of food and wine combined with the most exquisite food from chief Ignazio make this restaurant one of our favorites worldwide.

“Greta Service great Food”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Quite a large restaurant but with a very nice separate terrace. Good Umbrian food and wine. The waiter was especially helpful with an explanation of regional dishes and local wines. A very enjoyable dining experience

“A very good restaurant in the centre of Gubbio”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We came accross this restaurant by chance while walking round Gubbio. The upstairs entrance is deceptive as it looks like an ordinary cafe. However, the restaurant is downstairs and full of character (it would appear to be a medieval grain store) and tastefully decorated. Service is very good and an excellent wine list. Certainly not a tourist trap and well worth a visit.
