Having read other great review about this restaurant, two friends and I decided to try it . . and were so glad that we did! The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and friendly, and the building itself is architecturally fascinating. From the moment we stepped inside, we were treated royally. A welcome glass of Proseco was brought to each of us as we perused the menu. Soon afterwards, a lovely crudite platter arrived, all compliments of the house. I started with the spinach salad - which was simply divine: fresh spinach, lots of perfectly cooked bacon, and wonderful cheese. I then had the grilled salmon with slivered vegetables -- both were cooked to perfection and seasoned with finesse. We opted for a local Montefalco Rosso wine - from 2009 - and it was heavenly....and extraordinarily reasonable if not downright inexpensive. Service was attentive but not smothering. I would return here in a heartbeat, and recommend it unreservedly.

We managed to get a last minute table here which was good. Service was excellent. Maybe we ordered wrongly but I wasn't too impressed with the dishes we ordered compared to other meals we'd had on our trip.

We expected a nice dinner and it was wonderful! Great food and the mixed house antipasta was grand. The staff is young and well trained. Desserts are scrumptious and the ice-cream is among the best I had.

More expensive and more formal than anywhere else we ate in Perugia, the food was fine, the service excellent with the owner (I think) going from table to table chatting and making sure all was in order, perhaps a little over the top. Was it worth paying 24 euros for a main course rather than 12, and likewise for a bottle of wine, probably not. It's not somewhere i'd go again but purely because i'd rather have a more casual bistro atmosphere, but others would love it.
