We ordered to espresso macchiato's and one pastry and one tiramisu. Total= 14 euros. The desserts weren't even tasty! It was very disappointing considering how much we paid. Definitely would not recommend. Also, the staff were not very friendly and kind of rude. I'd suggest going somewhere else off the main tourist street.

There must no doubt be a limit to how much a touristy place is allowed to fool tourists, but this place is definitely far beyond that. Sandri is located in the most amazing place in the centre of Perugia with a stunning view on the Duomo and the old palaces of Corso Vannucci. How hard can it be to keep a decent standard serving food when you have thousands of people flowing in every day and the best quality ingredients are available effortlessly? But clearly this location is wasted on the owners of the place, who obviously do not care to lose their face to every single customer that naively takes a seat at one of their tables. What a waste, in a place like this, in one of the best food regions of Italy. Shame.

Avoid it and NEVER sit outside!
Do not let yourself be fooled by the positive references: those mainly refer to a few years ago, when this cafeteria was the best in town. The new management is greedy and has increased prices while lowering quality. The personnel is possibly the rudest I have found in my entire life: they do not hesitate to insult you if you simply ask for mandatory things, such as a written list of prices. The only thing they care for is money, they know that the majority of their customers will not return, but they will always have new ones fooled by the nice cakes in the shopping window.
Avoid this tourist trap, much better places nearby.

We have been going to this wonderful cafe for years. Always bought our coffees and pastries at the bar. This time we sat down outside - €37 for four coffees and four pastries and a small bottle of water. So you have been warned. This is outrageous - Cannot think of anywhere in the world where this would happen and with absolutely no charm. Disgraceful.

The interior has a lot of old world charm. The pastries are beautifully displayed, however we found them to be dry and average. The table service is good.
