We selected this place based on the large number of outstanding ratings in Tripadvisor. We were looking for a good restaurant with good wines.

We found out that Bibenda is nothing more than a winebar with a very limited number of snacks to chose from. The wine is of average quality but hugely expensive. The explanations of the manager of the pretended high quality of the wines (to explain the high prices) sound routinely and not convincing.
Leaves the questions why this place is advertised as a restaurant

We have been traveling with a small group of friends and arrived in Assisi a few nights ago. Two in our group had been to Bibenda Assisi five years ago when they were here on their honeymoon and wanted to return to Nila’s place again. She remembered them and was very pleased to have them come for another wine tasting. We sampled a variety of wines including an orange wine, Brunello, and Sagrantino. All were excellent! She also served us a platter of local meats and cheeses as well as a tray of foccacia with delicious local organic olive oil. We ended our visit with a small sample of local handmade chocolates. I will definitely be back to visit Nila and Bibenda Assisi.

What a lovely find. Great wine (and information) and lovely local meats and cheeses. A real pleasure. One of the best we have been to.

My wife and I have been roaming around Rome and now Assisi and have had wonderful luck finding the best places, and now we find Bibenda Assisi. Only after did we realize it is highly rated and we completely understand why! The owner is knowledgeable, will go out of her way to match you too the right wine to meet your taste, and is pleasant with well paired sides like great cured meats, cheeses, and local bread and olive oil. Huge selection of local wines with tastings to assure you are happy with the one you select. We had a nice relaxing lunch and although only two outside tables, we were never rushed or felt like we were to slow. The indoor tables are interesting too but we like sitting outside with people passing by and a stray conversation at times. We'll be back for sure.
