First of all the restaurant is in Perugia now. The chef and her husband understand that dining is an experience and to be great must be memorable...to this end they have succeeded! To start with white asparagus topped with a poached egg was fantastic. The Artichokes prepared four ways were another treat. Accompanied by one fine Italian red was an... More

It's a nightmare to find, so go by taxi. Eat on the terrace, watch the sun set over Perugia, and enjoy. The cooking is uniformly excellent.

Our hotel's recommendation, and half a kilometre down and up a dark, gravel track off the main road, Osteria i Birbi was a find in more ways than one; warm welcome from the host/owner, three courses of truly excellent food and a memorable way to mark the end of 2015; both tempura of vegetables and baccala were cooked in the...

We followed the advice on trip adviser and booked an evening meal at this excellent restaurant. The owner (who has a very slight touch of Basil Fawlty about him) recommended that we see the sunset and eat on the terrace. The food was outstanding, and the glass of wine we each had was very good, as I was driving I... More

The owners provide honest and creative regional dishes, both Umbrian and Tuscan with a nice wine offering. Beautiful view from the terrace. It is advisable to have satnav to reach the remote place.

The best in Torgiano and more widely in Italy, it is one of the best restaurants I have been to. Perhaps in my 15+ trips to Italy, this is in my Top 5. The restaurant is 5-10 minutes drive from the town center. The setting is magical--on a hill with a setting sun, the food is very authentic and I... More

This restaurant is worth the trip. Drive into the hills and throughout a last stroke offroad and get compensated with a nice dinner. When the weather is fine you get a wonderful view over a wonderful landscape, enjoy!

Although the food was okay, which is tradional Puglian, the hospitality was horrible. The host of the osteria did not even look at us. At first I thought this was by accident but it happened to often... Although we speak italian rather good we were adressed in one word english sentences by the owner. No information about the menu what... More

This Osteria - a little off road and hence not easily found - is a true Umbrian restaurant. The Tempura di verdue as a starter is unbelievable good and a must try here! Everything is made exactly like it should - no fancy stuff - just the real deal. And affordable too. The setting is brilliant with a fantastic sunset... More
