Monday night reservations, sat in the back room, less crowded but not as pretty as main dining room. Service was good, nice wine list, had steak, a bit tough, and Wild Boar. Roasted vegetables side was very good, potatoes were amazing. Didn't really meet our expectations, but still a nice meal.

Stopped in for lunch and had a great treat. Actually when we asked for a table the place was soooooooo quiet we thought that we had made a mistake but 15 mins later the place was full. Might be a good idea to book in advance. Really enjoyed the Gran padano soufflé and the wild boar stew. Wine service and... More

Lovely space, good service, very nice salads. Nice location. Pizza was ho-hum. So I think it is worth another visit. We just chose wrong.

Nice place. Tenderloin with black truffles was amazing. Close to piazza IV Novembre. In the heart of Perugia.

Outstanding home cooked food, excellent value for money, lovely friendly service,historical setting ( ask the owners ) and the owners are top shelf people. We stayed in Perugia for 5 nights and went there every night. This restaurant is the complete package !

Great restaurant located just out of the centre of town. The dishes were very tasty especially the veal which was really tender. Finally the dessert was also exquisite which had ricotta and chocolate.

Sited in an interesting 14thC building off 4th of November plaza, and pleasant for a light lunch. But on return for dinner, somewhat disappointing. Spotty service, food undistinguished. They need better training for staff, a better chef.

We quickly got a table on a Wednesday night around 8:30pm without reservations yet sat in the back area with less Italian ambiance. An English menu was available & servers spoke reasonably clear English. Our meal was delicious from appetizer to dessert. House red wine not impressive. Overall price very reasonable.

We ran across this little restaurant near the historic centre of Perugia. Delightful lunch, starting with a shared truffle omelette, followed by penne with baby broad beans, crunchy pancetta and pecorino. Both dishes were amazing. My partner had gluten-free penne, which she also loved. House wine was lovely, and the service wad great. Also very nice surrounding.

Thank ppaulnz
