Wonderful quiet place in the Perugia city center. Very nice outdoor seating. Well prepared Italian food and kind service. The red wine called L'Arringatore was excellent. Some very original antipasti: pecorino soufflé with red onion and ricotta cheesecake with baked cherry tomatoes and basil.

I loved this restaurant mainly because of the atmosphere. We stayed in a VRBO nearby, and wandered to Il Cantinone for a very late night dinner. It's pretty unassuming, but once you walk down the steps to go inside, you feel as though you've stepped...More
