“Bit dissapointing”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

The best thing in this restaurant is the location. The view is amazing. But the food we had here was below average. We were a big group so had set menu, but the food was very basic and I expected more.

“Really lovely!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This restaurant and the 'Living Bar' is in a unique position overlooking the rooftops and open countryside of Perugia.
Good choice of food. Excellent service and very moderate prices.
It's my favourite place for a quiet drink during the afternoon and for a relaxed evening meal.
There are comfortable chairs and sofas and the pillars dance with fairy lights in the evening.
I will be bringing my Painting Holiday groups in the spring.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I was there for Umbria Jazz 2013.
We had a fish menu and especially the risotto was plenty of fish(more fish than rice)..it was amazing.
The restaurant was really busy but the service was a la carte.
The wine list is really well provided from mid quality to the top.
The view is incredible..from your table you can see the entire valley from Perugia to Assisi.
The service it's been quite fast considering that the restaurant was full.
One of the waiter was really funny... really simpatia!!!

“A very pleasant surprise”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

At first sight, one would think that Ristorante Del Sole in Perugia were a tourist trap, with its fantastic view both form the restaurant itself, the café and the terrace. Many restaurants would have pursued one out of two possible strategies - fantastic view, lousy food and stiff prices OR fantastic view, good food and horrendous prices. This one does not. The food is good - better than average. The staff is friendly and helpful. The wine list is impressive and under-priced. And the entire experience is affordable indeed. It's not a star-struck kind of restaurant, but the combination of price, food, staff and view makes it one of the best overall dining experiences you can get in Umbria. As proff of that, we've had dinner there three times, even though we've just been to the town twice.

“Quite a let down”
Reviewed June 29, 2013


We were really disappointed in this place. We walked in without a reservation on a Wednesday in June 2013. We were immediately given a wonderful table with a great view and then ignored for pretty much the whole evening. We had to order water three times. One of our forks was dirty. We waited a really long time between each course for our plates to be cleared (even by Italian standards). Most of the food (the house plate of antipasti, a couple of plates of pasta, the cinghiale, and the veal) was actually very tasty and well prepared. The desserts however seemed premade/frozen. The waitstaff was active, they just seemed overworked. It was just too frustrating to really recommend.
