This is a very elegant restaurant. Everything is first class; but at the same time reasonably priced.

There were four of us for dinner and we all ordered fish. We were all very satisfied with the fish dishes and I was especially pleased with the grilled salmon.

The wine list is extensive and very reasonably priced.

There were almost no guests in the restaurant when we arrived a little before 8 o'clock. The service was fabulous. The menu is very extensive and complicated and the waitress was very patient in answering all of our questions. Two of us ordered grilled swordfish and when it arrived she could tell by the look on our faces that something was wrong. She immediately asked if there was a problem and we said that we would like it cooked more. No questions asked. She immediately took it back to the kitchen and when it returned it was cooked to perfection.

However by the time we finished eating dinner, the restaurant had filled up and the service deteriorated. I think because too many guests had arrived all at the same time. We had to wait almost 20 minutes after we finished eating before the plates were cleared. We enjoyed visiting with our friends but I still don't like looking at dirty plates for 20 minutes. We had to wait for a long time to get the check and had to ask for it twice.

We were given a complimentary prosecco when we arrived and complementary pastries after dinner. Both were very nice touches.

Bottom line is that if you're in Perugia this is the place to go for fish. If the restaurant is not overcrowded the service is excellent, but it can suffer when overextended.

Ristorante Deco offers a nice setting for a summerdiner in its garden. The restaurant mainly offers fish. Quality of the meals (I went three evenings) differed very much. Excellent fresh fish in on course, however also dishes covered with an excessive cover of bread-crumbs. The selection of open wines for this kind of restaurant is limited.

In this hotel the staff was very friendly and the room was big so was the bathroom. There were a wedding bed (a bed for 2 people) and we asked another one and it arrived instantly. They were vey Comfortable and we slept well in there. The flaw is that the Wi-Fi was non stable at all and I had to connect with my cellular line!

We visited this restauranr just the day before Easter, while staying at the ajoining hotel. Food was good, a little bit expensive. We tried the fish - this is the speciality of the restaurant,butit was alittle undercooked for my wife's taste. So was the beef. Atmosphere was not up to Michelin-rated restaurant. The next two days the restaurant was closed, but this was our chance - we found a better restaurant in Corciano.

It’s pretty hard to find a good fish restaurant in a the land-locked region of Umbria. For over 7 years now I have come to this restaurant located in the not so nice town of Ponte San Giovanni, Perugia.
Inside the gates of this establishment is a little oasis of green foliage and family hospitality.
Lately there has been a little confusion with the service, but for the most part the atmosphere is nice, clean and the fish fresh and tasty.
