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

You most probably need a reservation to dine here. The waiters are dressed up and paying large attention to the protocol. They are kind and attentive without being too familiar or close. Dishes are good towards being great. We had pasta with tartufo and they shredded tartufo on our dish (as the other restaurants will do) and it was delicios.... More

Came back a couple of days after a superb meal and the experience was even better. The service is just wonderful without being intrusive and the food is fantastic. Writing this review makes me want to go back but it's a bit of a hike. Highly recommended
