Both the menu and the service are both traditional but excellent and the restaurant is set in a beautiful old building down an alleyway in the centro storico.

When you walk into a restaurant in Italy and you see only Italians you know you have chosen well. We came here for Sunday lunch and thus there were lots of families. If you haven't booked a table best try to get there by 1pm, as it seems most people arrive just after 1:30pm. This is a big place, with... More

So great - we went two nights in a row! The friendly and fabulous Chef sat with us and shared some of his stories (turns out he once worked for Donald Trump!) Atmosphere, location, food are all top notch. A short walk from the Brufani Palace Hotel, down some ancient steps onto a picturesque backstreet. After two long days touring... More

You're getting a glass of prosecco on arrival, a unique and ambient atmosphere, amazing food. Then what? Then a chef comes and asks you if you enjoyed that - I promise you will have! The desert service is very special: I'm not a sweet tooth but when the waitress wheeled in a trolley with the moulages of the selection even... More

A group of about 25 people dined here one evening in a separate room, vaulted in brick in such a way that sound didn't travel or become overwhelming. We couldn't hear people in other dining areas because the walls are too thick to transmit sound. The other rooms were also vaulted, giving an old and cozy feeling. The food was... More

Been there during a business trip with one of my business partners. Definitely recommendable with a warm, familiar atmosphere. We went home with the good feeling of a quality evening. Thanks for an unforgettable night and the unforgettable 🍷 recommendation, which was well worth the price.

This was my daughter's favorite restaurant in Perugia, so naturally she wanted to eat there on her last night before leaving. The dinner and the ambience were as magical as we had be led to expect. Claudio, the charming chef/owner, came out to greet us and our waitress could not have been more attentive. We had several appetizers, the most... More

In an art city surpassingly lacking in good restaurants, this is a standout exception. From the initial cheery welcome by the chef, to the attentive service right up to our coffee, it was a great experience. We were whisked to our table on arrival, and immediately presented with glasses of prosecco - an immediate plus in my view! He had... More

In May 1989 I stopped in at this restaurant for lunch. 4 Hours later we walked out. The place was so special you could feel it! Claudio and his wife Sheri were such gracious hosts and the food was so unbelievably good. I kept the the biz card and over the years I would see it and remind myself how... More
