La Forchetta was recommended by our hotel in Perugia and it was well worth it. The food was delicious and well presented. The chef and wait staff were very welcoming and helpful in selection. We would definitely make a return visit and recommend to others.

Description
"Culinary excellence combined with art and culture." The idea came to us thinking of a place to spend the entire evening, from dinner to after dinner. For "excellence" in the kitchen we are: the selection of raw materials, a menu strongly seasonal variability constant menu itself (every 10 days), a wine cellar and spirits of the highest level and not in the last triptych of professionals who crush you these components , starting from the Chef Flavia Brown, help cook Giacomo Romito and finally to Maitre-Sommelier Alessandra Surdo, all professionals with different experience behind and from the renowned school ALMA Master Gualtiero Marchesi. The combination with "Art and Culture" because our small but cozy bistro space and give life to several initiatives which will give you a calendar of social and here on our web page. Each month the walls of our local host works of photographers, painters, sculptors, at the end of each session exhibition will organize a dinner to Hoc for you to know / to and interact with them. At least two times a week on our small shelf host of individual artists who will entertain our guests after dinner (individual tools, monologues, readings, cabaret). We also take life on a reserved space that we called "The unique table", themed dinners for only 6/8 diners, an opportunity to review a book or a movie. The beautiful garden will then be available in the spring-summer for concerts and fashion shows.
