We were in Gubbio for a day for the annual truffle festival and felt very lucky to find this restaurant just by walking by and seeing the various rating stickers on the door, popping in and seeing a nice dining room and smelling the lovely food. The menu Degustazione (Tasting menu) was fabulous, although not cheap at 50 Euro per person. We asked if it was ok for one person to get that menu and the other person to order ala carte. The server was totally welcoming of this and even offered to split everything in the kitchen for us to share so the meal was perfectly timed and served! Great service, great food!
The only thing that got in the way of a 5 star review for us was the price did not quite match the atmosphere of the dining experience. The restaurant has at least 4 dining rooms all nicely appointed, but the noise from both diners that might be happier in certain rooms (like putting all kids with strollers, high chairs, crying and tossing toys, etc.) perhaps in an area away from the quiet business dining tables? It was also distracting to be seated next to the cash register since we got a lot of cold air from the door constantly opening and closing and smoke blowing in from outside the door since you cannot smoke indoors. Just ask for a different table if you are trying to have a quiet or romantic meal.
Huge compliments to the wine service along with the food service. The list is long on both regional Umbrian and neighboring Tuscan wines, plus a good offering from all over Italy. We asked for a decanter and it was overall flawless wine service from the stemware, serving temperatures, price and value options.
Excellent quality table linen, lovely locally made lamps in the famous pottery of the region.
Just wish they could sit in the chair and feel what it is like to dine in that table and perhaps they might make some atmosphere adjustments.
I still plan to return - just will call ahead and get a different zone of the restaurant.
