Amazing lunch!!! Thank you. Delicious lunch! We chose taglioni with truffle and pappardelle with white meat Ragu. The price was 15 and 12 euros. Peaceful location behind the St Lorenzo church. Lovely service.

The restaurant has great food, and an interesting wine list. We arrived, were seated and given a menu, then waited about 30 minutes before we managed to attract the attention of a young lady to get us some drinks, and for us to order food. It really was that bad. Seemed like people were busy , but there were not very many of them.
Interesting that, once they finished serving a complete meal to another table, they then seemed to shift focus onto us. Inadequate training maybe? Just bad practice? Such a shame.
Adding truffles to everything, on request, is an interesting idea, but truffles just do not go with everything, not for me anyway.

Overall, Perugia has some very good restaurants but my husband and I were looking for something different. That is exactly what we found Al Tartufo. The atmosphere is atypical, almost chic with acrylic chairs and indirect lighting which highlights the exciting, fresh food.
I had a creative salad which was a take on panzanella, with chopped tomato and lettuce surrounding a bagel-like crostini covered with burrata and shaved truffles. Ny husband had a a pasta loaded with shaved truffles and decorated with a daisy. We then shared a plate of sliced beef with a green peppercorn dressing that was superb, no other word to describe it. The beef was tender and the sauce was rich but delicate.
We shared a dessert of a semolina pudding which gave a new meaning to dessert. It was light and creamy.

Try it, especially if you are looking for something different! There are many wonderful places in Perugia but this one is truly worth a visit!

Wow. We loved every single bite. Do we need to say more???? Great food, friendly service, perfect location, fair price. To be very picky, the tagliolini al Tartufo were less good than the rest.

I was in that restaurant with my girlfriend and were quite disappointed about the level of service and kitchen. We had two different kind of pasta and both of them were without salt at all! When we asked the waiter to give us salt for pasta she didn't asked what is wrong proposing to remake dishes, just gave us salt!!! At the end they charged one bottle of water that we never ordered!
