“Excellent food in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We spent a wonderful day in Gubbio, and this restaurant was recommended by a number of locals. The food was excellent... I had a pasta with battarga and tomatoes, and my dearest had veal and a side dish of seasonal vegetables. Service was professional and there were a number of nice touches, including a tasty plate of cookie with our coffee. Highly recommended.

“Beyond Expectations”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We wandered around looking at menus in windows & really stumbled across Del Lupo as we wanted to eat somewhere that had Truffle dishes on the menu & they did. From the first greeting, the staff were very friendly but obviously took their jobs very seriously - formal without being stuffy. We asked for assistance with both food & wine selection which was happily given. We had three truly memorable dishes. The first was the restaurants signature entree - a soft egg with shaved Truffles - you have to see it & taste it to believe it - the second dish was the home made Tagliatelle with Truffle & the third was the Scallopine of Foie Gras - they were all amazing. A great experience.

“Outstanding local cuisine!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

My wife in spent a day in Gubbio while driving between Assisi and Rimini. The restaurant was recommended to my wife and we are so glad we stopped in for lunch! It was one of the best meals we had on this particular two week trip to Italy! Since this was our first trip to Umbria we made a point of trying as much local cuisine as we could, and I'd say that Taverna del Lupo was easily the best sampling of it we had! I don't remember exactly what we had (it was a few months ago now that we were there) but I'm pretty sure my wife had one of the local pastas with truffles and I had exquisite lamb and roasted potatoes. The wine list was impressive (we enjoyed a nice Rosso Montefalco), and the bread was amazing! Even if you find yourself in Gubbio only for an afternoon you won't go wrong eating some of the best regional food at Taverna del Lupo.

“Wonderful food and staff”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Did not discover taverna del lupo until last year for some reason, maybe because it looked too formal for us when our kids were younger. I am sure it would have been wonderful even with young kids as the staff are so friendly. Wonderful restaurant, very interesting umbrian menu with great wines and gorgeous staff. Have eaten inside and out and out is definitely better but inside is good. can't fault anything. Would happily go back again, and again!!

“Just incredibly good Umbrian food”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Just fantastic, our "go to" place in Gubbio when visiting my wife's family in town. We always end up with a sizeable group when her family joins us and the owner treats us like royalty. The menu isn't that long, the best thing to do here is ask the waiter to let the chef decide what to make for you, and then go with it. Amazing truffle dishes, incredible tagliatelle, the risotto dishes are always perfectly cooked. The chef really does stick to the regional cuisine and you won't find food from other regions on the menu. One fall visit we had a delicious chestnut soup. Another visit I had local squab marinated with juniper berries and balsamic vinegar. The chef will make things not on he menu too but only if they are regional dishes. The décor is classic Umbria, simple yet elegant, the white washed walls make it feel much larger inside. The service is also impeccable, although some friends of ours once complained about slow service (we weren't with them on that trip). All in all you can't go wrong here. Add it to your list of must eat restaurants.
