“Local gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Staying at the hotel San Ercolano round the corner, we couldn't miss this place, and we certainly made the most of it! A terrace overlooking the steps of San Ercolano church, pedestrianised ( with steps!) so safe for a small child to explore a little while we relaxed. Great for a drink (cheap cocktails!), breakfast ( great coffee & fresh juice) or an aperitivo. The offer of a vegetarian plate of snacks and a drink for 5 euros could not be refused and was a tasty bargain ( especially the morsel of melanzane parmigiano) and when 2more of our party arrived the food was offered without us asking for it and the bottle of wine they chose was counted as part of the deal! Very kind of them... It seemed to be quite busy day or night and was buzzing around midnight with student types from various countries. Friendly staff ( we met a number of them!) particularly the waitress who was patient with us, an indecisive crowd. A fun place, I would love to hear the live music next time!

“Great Food, Value and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

I've been here three times now whilst living in Perugia and it's a great experience every time! Whether it's just for a drink or some food, this bar is an absolute gem! The wine is very good and at very reasonable prices compared to some of the more central bars and the 'Torta al Testo' (regional Panini type dish) is excellent! The anchovy, mozzarella and courgette one is my personal favourite! For 2 Tortas and 2 glasses of wine the bill came to 11 euros so it is a great choice for a cheaper, quicker meal!

“The nicest Bar in Perugia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2012

This bar lies next to the stairs of San Ercolano and has a beautiful view. It's very silent there and the terrace is very comfortable. Insode it is very special and you can see that both owners brought their style into the bar. The prices are cheap and the Drinks are very good. Especially the coffee is marvelous. The service is very family and you feel at home. Internet is for free and you can also watch important sport-events on a TV screen.
In the evening it is also a very good Beer-pub and sometimes they have live-music.

“An absolute gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2012

It might not look like the most exciting or atmospheric cafe in town, but it absolutely blew us away. Located next to the steps leading up to the city center, fitted with parasols and a sign depicting some attractively priced sandwiches (which, it turned out, were even cheaper than listed.
The food was excellent and made from regional products, as our enthousiastic waitress was able to tell. Everything seemed to be fresh and tasted delicious.
The service was very refreshing and we were always met with a smile. We are very grateful for the friendly service making us feel right at home. We're not Italian though, so thank God their english is good!
You should not pass down the opportunity to sit down, relax and enjoy Perugia at café sant'ercolano!

“The perfect place for a spritz and a view of city life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

Café Sant'Ercolano Bar Sport is situated at the foot of the 120 odd steps leading to the upper levels of Perugia - an excellent place to enjoy a beer, a spritz (Aperol and white wine or spumante), a coffee and observe city life: everyone spending any amount of time in this town is bound to pass by! Daniele and his wife will do their utmost to make you feel at home, offering all sorts of snacks with your drink, and willingly partake in any thoughts you might wish to share :-)
