“very dissapointing”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Location and ambiance looked very good but unfortunately the food and the service and the prices were very bad. We ordered 1 anti-pasti for 3 persons but we got 3 huge plates with old food which tasted dry, sour and salted. The waitress suddenly did not understand English anymore... As secondi we had sausages with bread. Also this meal was old, dry and the bread was so hard you could kill someone with it! Although we complaint there was no reduction of the price and we paid €30,-- pp... way to much!

“Way too expensive for they offer”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

They charged us an 8 euro coperto, including two euros each for two little boys- aged 2 and 4, even though the two year old didn't eat a single bite and was asleep. Bill came to 49.5 euros and we didn't order much at all. Pasta was good but secondi was bad. The place was totally empty when we were there and now we know why. My 4 yr old asked for a small dish of PLAIN PASTA with no sauce and they charged 6 euros for that! Come on!

“Friendly environment, very good local dishes”
Reviewed 5 December 2011

Nice small romantic restaurant, with very friendly and familiar atmosphere. Located in the old city, few minutes walking from the escalators, leading to old cities' main street. Excellent typical dishes, especially the pasta..Kind helpful waitress . Very good choice to end an "exhausting" day.

“Terrible food, expensive”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

The only reason why we went to this terrible place is because it was in walking distance from the hotel Eden (they suggested to eat there!!!!). Overcooked pasta, chewy steak, frozen vegetables and practically no dessert. This place looks and SMELLS bad. Around 160 Euros for 4 people including 2 children. Never again. Suggestion to future travellers to Perugia: STAY AWAY!!
