The restaurant is in Deruta itself, close to the main sqaure. We ate here only once and the food was fantastic, unfortunately we did not have time to go back a second time. We sat outside in the little back alley enjoying beans with pancetta and rosemary, a very simple dish but full of taste! Also the truffle pasta was excellent.
Nice house wine and friendly service.

Enjoyed several meals here with friends in both May & June. Owner Luciano & his staff were delightful, and the food was delicious & beautifully presented. Enjoyed the baked ricotta appetizer, the grilled sausages & roasted potatoes, great house wines... & the meal finished with an absolutely amazing house liquor! If Luciano sold it, we'd have filled our suitcases! Charming restaurant up in Centro Storico... I eat here every time I visit Deruta!

After having visited a couple of years ago, we decided to go back for lunch after doing some ceramic shopping in town. As usual, the food was very good. The table service was prompt until it came time to pay for our meal, and we couldn't seem to catch anyone's eye. Finally, after about 20 minutes (we still had shopping to do, after all) we left our outside table, went through the restaurant and waited by the front door. This caused someone to notice our table had been vacated and no bill paid, so they came quickly. Which brings me to say....go for the food, it is very good.... but the management needs some work.

Being that Deruta exists for tourism I had minimal expectations for an interesting lunch. I was wrong. On Sunday the guests were mostly Italian. I had a very nice strangozzi carbonara with black truffle shavings. Although carbonara is not an Umbrian sauce it was very well done. My friends had beautiful salads with fresh goat cheese, nuts etc. on the whole a very good light lunch. Service was slow and haphazard but friendly. Luciano offered us a digestif to compensate for what he saw as subpar service on a busy day.

What better way is there to celebrate the purchase of an heirloom piece of Maiolichehe Ceramiche from U.Grazia than to take the short drive up to the Historic Centre of Deruta for lunch at Taverna del Gusto.Luciano,the owner/proprietor,runs a charming and welcoming restaurant and in a week of good food this one was head and shoulders above the rest.
A plate of ham rolled in fresh pasta and baked with cheese,served with a slice of black truffle was perfection on a plate,and the tiramisu(which can so often disappoint)was sublime.
