We visited Antica Norcineria three times whilst in Perugia at the end of March, and enjoyed each visit.
The host was very friendly, spoke good English and was very tolerant of our terrible Italian, and enjoyed taking us through the food and drink on offer, but also giving us tips on where to visit locally.
Drink selection was focused on a limited selection of carefully chosen drinks. We drank the house wine (very reasonable, especially for the quality) and tried a couple of the local beers. All were great and it was nice to try some of the locally sourced craft beers from Perugia and Assisi.
We had lunch here on one of the visits. I had a platter of the meat and cheese on offer. I chose the €12 medium platter which was huge, probably plenty for two, and allowed me to try all that was on offer. My girlfriend, who is vegetarian, had a panini with a selection of roasted vegetables and cheeses. It was very nice. She had hoped to have the spinach cannelloni, however it had run out for the day. Not the end of the world.
Set up is a bit interesting - very much an informal setting, where you order and collect your drinks and food from the counter and set own your table, due to the lack of a restaurant license. We liked how casual it was, however if you're looking for something sophisticated, beyond good food and wine, this is probably not for that occasion.
Overall, really enjoyed our visits and would definitely recommend popping in for an aperitif.
