Well, where can I start! We were made to feel welcome by the owner who explained with great knowledge where gaps in my fair knowledge existed with his menu. His advice was first class and that carried the same with his wine recommendation. As for the foods quality and presentation: this guy needs a Michelin star in our opinion. Book a meal here, don’t miss this one, highly recommended. ( Do book though unlike the person who didn’t and found it shut who left a negative review, he really did miss out through his own stupidity)

We had a really enjoyable night out at this taverna. We had booked into an agriturismo just up the road who, as it was "out of season", did not serve evening meals. Just as well, or we would not have been told about Taverna Dell'Orso! This taverna is less than two km down the road!

The staff are very helpful and polite. The menu is simple but covers for a range of tastes. - in the main land based! The portions are very generous, so ere on the side of fewer dishes!
The wine we had was an excellent Sauvignon bland at €13.50 a bottle was extremely good value.

We elected not to go for the shared menu for two costing €45.00 - so our bill including water and the wine, came to €65.00! Extremely good value for an outstanding dinner.

I recommend that if you visit Perugia, try to get here for an evening meal. You will not be disappointed.

We were looking forward to having dinner here, but upon our arrival, the place was closed. The sign in front of the restaurant stated clearly "Open every day for lunch and dinner". Their website (that I had consulted earlier that evening) didn't have any notification that the restaurant was closed.
In this day and age one should be able to rely on modern social media to be up to date. So.... bad service.

Dear Peter, we are so sad to see that you made a so bad review, especially because is a consequence of your distraction and not our direct responsibility, i try to explain even if my english is not too good....
First of all the restaurant was closed for a week for vacation and is not possible on tripadvisor website advice customers about that, is only permitted in case of a big renovation of the restaurant for long period.
Posted on the door of the restaurant was a big notice about the vacation, directly under the opening hours table, obviously in italian.
In accord of what you explain about this age, we posted the notification of the vacation period in ours FB page and in ours web site also, the FB post is still there from September 1 if you want to check.
However if you " were looking forward to having dinner".... maybe was more appropriated to sand an e-mail or just using the phone to make a reservation.
We are really sorry for what happened but at the same time we would like you and other customers to know that we have done our best to respect our customers.

Great food and excellent service in an authentic casual setting on a cosy crowded terrace surrounded by Italians (locals and tourists). Highly recommended!
