“Great restaurant in a great location”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We had a fabulous experience here. This was easily one of the finest meals we had in Italy. The owner is very gracious and the food is wonderful! His wine parings were tremendous, and the price was much less than I would have thought. Great service, too. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Unique food with amazing service.”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

We chose to go to ristorante San Lorenzo, as it had a Michelin guide mention. It was definitely not a mistake. Had a fantastic menu with very special (and certainly not touristy) degustation plates. The wine sommelier is simply amazing, her choices went just right with the plates and she offered a high quality service.

“paradise for a foodie or oenophile”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Surprisingly, this place was not full on the day we visited, while the places surrounding it (essentially bad pizza bars) were hopping with young students. It was only by chance we came across this wonderful restaurant. As you walk up towards the cathedral, it is a small doorway in an arch on your right of the cathedral/duomo. We were so delighted to find a place like this in Perugia. It is in the style of a relais & chateau michelin french restaurant but with none of the stuffiness. It is like they've built it into a cave, you have to step down 8 old stone steps, then another 5 to a room that is brightly lit & well decorated.
When we visited the menu was not in english but the staff speak english & translated it all. We were told the chef is the owner, and thats always a good thing so we opted for the taster menu with the matching drinks. In other places in Italy this would have been in the region of 100-150 euro. Here the prices were so low! It was 50euro for the taster menu and an extra 30 euro for the matching drinks. This restaurant offers amazing value for money!

It was an amazing experience. The waitress had a story to tell about each wine and each dish as they were served. Every singe thing was cooked to perfection. On a holiday you allow for good basic meals and maybe you'll find 1 place that does some dishes very well, but this place was an extra ordinary find. Not only from a foodie's perspective, but from a quality, provenance and value for money perspective.
By far, the best food i've ever eaten, and I eat out alot, at home & abroad.

“Second time and again a great experience!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

I remembered antica trattoria san lorenzo from my last trip so we hopped in again! The friendly waitress showed us our table we received a glass of prossecco followed by a soup as starter, again full of flavour!
We ordered the tunna since I remembered it being great the last time and again, hallelujah grilled to perfection!
as a pasta dish I had the lobster ravioli with seafood and to finish we had the Giannina Stew with foie gras this all paired with excellent wines from the region!
I ll defenitely will be back!

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

We found this by 'accident' or perhaps, fate on a rainy spring night in May, 2013. We were warmly welcomed. The varied dishes my wife and I ordered were all superb - a mixture of clean, simple Italian with a touch of complexity from the French side.
While speaking with Chef we realized we had friends in the culinary world in common.
Unlike our usual habit of trying a new restaurant each night while on business and pleasure trips, two nights later we just had to return for a second meal.
Once again, the foods was excellent, and the warmth of reception wonderful.
