“Some good things, some bad”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Although the carpaccio of beef served on a bed of lovely fresh greens was delicious, the pasta on the daily menu was the second time in two days that we ran into a flavorless sauce. Small tubes of pasta (sedanini) were served with rancetto (a local pancetta) that wasn't bad but a "sauce" of tomato, red onion, and cubes of eggplant that once again had had their flavor boiled away. Except for decent oil, there just was no flavor in the dish. Again, as in our experience in Gubbio, there was nothing in the description of the dish that gave a clue to its preparation, so we've no idea how to avoid them in future. We certainly have never met such dishes in 30 years of travelling in Italy.

“Quite a find”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

There's no shortage of places to eat in Perugia but this one is tucked away down a side street and is run as an adjunct to the wine and beer shop which is at the front of the premises.
It's very simple food but with top class ingredients and nippy service. Perfect for lunch.

“Beautiful food, great wine and beer”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

I talked to the owners about their philosophy of cooking, which is local, local, local (to the province of Umbria). And the food was great, and the wine and beer that I chose were both amazing.
