My family dined here while we were visiting a daughter who was studying at the Umbra Institute. Our server suggested a great wine. He also helped with how much food to order, i.e. we each ordered an appetizer and then a pasta course. However, only one entree was needed between the four of us. We thought that Osteria A. Priori...

Arrived here for lunch with 11 people. We were able to get a table for all of us. Service for such a large group was good and helpful. Food was good.

Had lunch here our first day in Perugia. Sat downstairs in the wine bar and saw all the people going upstairs that had reservations. So very popular place. We really enjoyed our light lunch of soup, meat and cheese platter and a delicious ricotta cake, so we booked another night for dinner. Upstairs this time, more comfortable seating, service wasn't...

At the end of a group visit to Perugia, we were ten to dine here and had a wonderful time. Great food for a small price, great atmosfere, kind and excellent service, just the furniture was a little spartan for a few of us.

Best eating experience we had in Perugia. Simple wooden tables and chairs (not very comfortable) in the clutter of an enoteca. The food was simple Umbrian fare, served in an imaginative way and prepared with care - you could see them in the kitchen. The place was pretty busy (a mix of Italians and foreigners), so we were lucky to... More

This small restaurant situated steps from our hotel was a five star visit. During the day it serves as a wine store while in the evenings it is a charming 8 table restaurant. The interior is relaxing and tastefully designed with wait staff eager to help and interpret the menu to an unknowing expatriate. The menu selections were clever and... More

This restaurant feels authentic (non-touristy - very welcome by contrast with Assisi) and it serves very good food. It is also good value. The balsamic vinegar made available for my salad was of a much higher grade than I have had anywhere else - turning an otherwise normal salad into a real treat. The stragozzi (pasta typical of the area),... More

Gnochi was very good, but I didn't like the meat as much. There are many good beers with good price. Needs reservation and food takes a little while to be prepared (they inform that in the menu).

We started with a selection of cold cuts which included prosciutto, salami, cheeses of sheep, cows and pecorino. All the cuts were made at the moment. I ordered stringozzi with fresh truffles. It was out of this world. My husband ordered a veal stew with some steamed greens. It was excellent. Both dishes were delicious and very fresh. We wanted... More
