This is a lovely restaurant in the historical centre of Deruta. The warm, rustic interior with old brick walls and simple, wooden furniture matches well with the location. I enjoyed a set menu here, so a full menu with antipasto right down to dessert. It was typical Umbrian food and very good, except for the cheescake at the end which... More

One could to find a better representation of quality, seasonal Umbrian food than Taverna del Gusto . Then menu is not extensive, which for us denotes a restaurant that caters to locals as well as visitors. The house wine is wonderful, whether white or red, but let the owner. Luciano choose for you and it will not disappoint! We always... More

Every year on our visit to Italy we stop in Deruta to purchase Ceramica and stop for lunch at this Ristorante. We have eaten inside and outdoors but one thing is consistent ... the food is excellent. The owner is friendly and speaks English as well. We already plan to stop on next years visit to Deruta.

We love eating outdoors and were drawn to the neat alley with no traffic and plenty of privacy. The first thing I noticed was that there were canvas tarps over the tables for shade and they were COVERED with pigeon poop. I tried not to look up. Looking down wasn't so great either. The lasagna had 2 layers, flat as... More

All my meals here have been nothing but amazing and memorable. We had the privilege of dining at this restaurant in the historic hilltop town of Deruta as a close friend of ours is a cook here. The menu is what simple Umbrian cuisine is all about, true to the local taste using seasonal quality ingredients. Ending your meal off... More

Eat outside in the lane or inside in the beautifully restored building. The food is simple and well cooked, and the service is always good.

Went for a quick lunch. Food was okay but nothing special. Prices are average too given the quality. Service a little on the slow side.

We found Taverna del Gusto by chance on a very warm afternoon, and found it to be an oasis of italian charm, shade and yummy food. Nothing fancy, mind you but very delicious, just as it is supposed to be in Italy. The menu is filled with nice choices, the service extremely relaxed and friendly. Nice prices also. We spent...

I wish I had more time there! We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful but quick lunch sitting outside in a quiet alley, fabulous starters including scamorza al tartufo and a large choice of Umbrian antipasti. The gnocchetti al sugo di cinghiale were outstanding, as were the linguine tartufo. We had to rush to catch a nearby visit of ceramic-making, so no... More
