Forget it ! Its time to close old man ! Yes the owner is funny and a character but the oldest restaurant in Perusia is wayyyy out-dated. The place is not clean. Avoid at all costs ! Sorry.

Traditional Umbrian dishes, well-prepared. The night we were there we had nettle ravioli, followed by grilled boar chops, and both were delicious. The restaurant is small, and the walls are covered with photos and memorabilia featuring the restaurant's owner and chef, in his boxing days....More

We stumbled upon this restaurant and were met by Franky and his wife. The walls were filled with articles and photos of Franky as a young boxer and all the people he had met during his life. While it was fun just to look at...More

Having visited Perugia on a number of occasions we were running out of restaurants, they all seem to blend into the same. Hidden away at the top of town Vecchia's is small and decorated with stories of Frankie's life hanging from the walls. The food...More
