Beautiful vaulted ceiling greets you. Many locals and tourists visit here so we did get the menu in English which was great. We had gnocchi and wild boar, beans and pig skin and pizza. All were delicious. They have veal and steak and tripe as well if you are into that as well as pasta with a selection of sauces.

Out of the main drag but popular by word of mouth. Excellent wood fired pizza and local dishes at reasonable price. Get crowded at peak times. Locals love it.Deserve a try.

Nice and authentic Italian restaurant where you can find big variety of Umbrian specialities, vegetarian selection of food and nice vine list (500 ml of wine only for 4,00€). As appetizer I would recommend vegetarian plate.

The bread was fantastic. The owner advised us that the "starter" for the bread has been lovingly tended for years which explains why it was so good. Our family enjoyed a pizza and several pastas dishes.

Mangiar Bene -- "to eat well" -- and so one does. Umbrian country food, all that is reputed to be, served with pride and dedication to local suppliers, whom they call out on the menu. We dined there twice in our last week in Perugia, not a choice we make lightly. The staff has a stake in the place, which... More

Had a great dinner here, good service, and busy. Classic Umbrian cooking, not too fancy but quite appealing; a good selection of wines.
