We ate here on a Friday evening in November. Restaurant not full. Husband/wife team (I think). Really thoughtful menu and, in the best Italian way, a limited number of each course on the menu. The owners really care. Quite intense experience but amply justified by the quality of what we ate and drank. These 2 really deserve to be supported.

Visited late September, 2016, after recommandations from friendly. We were not dissapointed...started with two kinds of good bread (not a given in these parts). We were four people and we tried the friend courgette flowers, and chicken lever brioche. The courgette was brilliant, while the brioche was good. But the pappardelle with ragú of wild boar was marvellous, and one... More

This restaurant, tucked away near the Duomo, is set in a charming, vaulted interior and serves delicious creative food at little more than you would pay at a basic trattoria. Service, by the owner, was highly professional. Best check opening hours, or reserve, by phone.

Excellent dishes. Simple but tasteful. Both of us took a salad Pasta and dessert and white wine. We can recommend the tiramisu. Also the bread was excellent. A recommendation when you visit perugia!

we found this osteria when we lived in Perugia for 3 months taking classes at Universita di Stranieri. We returned recently and the food and service are still great. Excellent Umbrian cooking with a twist. We have eaten here at least a dozen times and never had a bad dish. Prices are reasonable, nice house wine, friendly hosts. Do yourself... More

Lovely atmosphere with attentive, professional service. We shared Zuppa di lenticchie di Castelluccio con taglierini verdi alla tinca affumicata del Trasimeno (Castelluccio lentils soup and tagliatelle with smoked tench) (€9) and each had an order of cheese ravioli with artichokes (€9). (I cannot find the second dish on the website, so I cannot give the entire name.) A glass of... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by local Perugian friends and we had a wonderful meal. Absolutely must try the Arvoltolo - delicious. I had the green bean pasta which was superb. It was great that our teenage girls were offered wine or water - they don't do cola! The house white was very good. Definitely worth hunting this restaurant... More

We did book last minute without any problem. Waitress and owner are very polite and professional, the meal..excellent! I had the best tuna ever: mi-cuit, topped with pistachios and served with aubergines, capers and olives..just perfect! Price was convenient for the quality of the meal: this included a bottle of wine too.

We just had our second delicious meal at Ubu Re, an osteria in the centro storico in Perugia and it didn't disappoint. It is a small restaurant with a warm friendly feeling, soft jazz playing in the background, and interesting art on the wall. The server remembered us from lunch a month before and greeted us warmly.
