I was there on Nov. 14, 2013 with the Umbria Region Senior Meeting. We had lunch there. The food was OK... Nothing special. I personally thought it was too oily for my taste. The only thing I definitely liked was the dessert.. "Mille Foglie" (A thousand leaves). That was delicious. I actually had two desserts. The customer service was good. Nothing to complain there..... I thought the inside was typical from Italy... by the way it was made... I would rate it good....

I visited a few years ago on a day trip with my mum. We stopped to buy a bottle of wine for my father in a local shop in town and asked the owner where he recommended eating.

He told us this place was the best in town even if slightly more expensive he said was worth it.

We went in, the furniture is antique traditional pieces, nice paintings, and nice atmosphere, no loud speaking, a quite background to enjoy the food!

We opted for a selection of regional specialties, we thought it might be little to fill us up, but it was actually the contrary! We had plenty, well presented, all perfectly cooked and any doubt the waiter was more than happy to clarify, from how the cheeses were cured to info about the making of the dishes.

I warmly recommend visiting the town, which is simply amazing and this restaurant too.

We were in Gubbio for a day for the annual truffle festival and felt very lucky to find this restaurant just by walking by and seeing the various rating stickers on the door, popping in and seeing a nice dining room and smelling the lovely food. The menu Degustazione (Tasting menu) was fabulous, although not cheap at 50 Euro per person. We asked if it was ok for one person to get that menu and the other person to order ala carte. The server was totally welcoming of this and even offered to split everything in the kitchen for us to share so the meal was perfectly timed and served! Great service, great food!

The only thing that got in the way of a 5 star review for us was the price did not quite match the atmosphere of the dining experience. The restaurant has at least 4 dining rooms all nicely appointed, but the noise from both diners that might be happier in certain rooms (like putting all kids with strollers, high chairs, crying and tossing toys, etc.) perhaps in an area away from the quiet business dining tables? It was also distracting to be seated next to the cash register since we got a lot of cold air from the door constantly opening and closing and smoke blowing in from outside the door since you cannot smoke indoors. Just ask for a different table if you are trying to have a quiet or romantic meal.

Huge compliments to the wine service along with the food service. The list is long on both regional Umbrian and neighboring Tuscan wines, plus a good offering from all over Italy. We asked for a decanter and it was overall flawless wine service from the stemware, serving temperatures, price and value options.

Excellent quality table linen, lovely locally made lamps in the famous pottery of the region.

Just wish they could sit in the chair and feel what it is like to dine in that table and perhaps they might make some atmosphere adjustments.

I still plan to return - just will call ahead and get a different zone of the restaurant.

We have been going to Taverna del Lupo on and off for about fifteen years and used to enjoy it. It is still a lovely room with excellent, locally made pottery as part of the decor. But handsome is as handsome does. We visited again in June of 2013 and will never return. Perhaps because a corporate group now owns the place, once tasty dishes now have the tired, tasteless character of food cooked by bored, disengaged kitchen help instead of an invested owner-chef. The waitstaff also seemed bored, bored with officious attitude. Bad food, unpleasant staff: when there are multitudes of delightful, individually owned restaurants all over the region, why go to Taverna del Lupo? No reason that I can think of.
