In May 1989 I stopped in at this restaurant for lunch. 4 Hours later we walked out. The place was so special you could feel it! Claudio and his wife Sheri were such gracious hosts and the food was so unbelievably good. I kept the the biz card and over the years I would see it and remind myself how... More

Dishes are good towards being great. We had pasta with tartufo and they shredded tartufo on our dish (as the other restaurants will do) and it was delicios.... More

Came back a couple of days after a superb meal and the experience was even better. The service is just wonderful without being intrusive and the food is fantastic. Writing this review makes me want to go back but it's a bit of a hike. Highly recommended

This restaurant came highly recommended so we tried it. The service was impeccable. The meal was fantastic. The restaurant is located down an alley from one of the main walkways in the old city. An evening fog led to the mystique of walking down the alley. The restaurant is located in the old dwelling of a Count. It is very... More

We are here several times during our week in Perugia. Always great food, service and wines. Claudio is very attentive and it shows. Family atmosphere but also very professional. Definitely a place to visit.

We ate here on a Sunday evening in November. Not cheap - one for a special occasion. But lovely food, considerate service and complimentary Prosecco, nibbles and liqueur after the meal. Vaulted ceilings and tasteful art on the walls. White linen tablecloths...Recommended.

We were in Italy to celebrate my 50th birthday as well as our wedding anniversary. We visited Perugia and went to La Taverna based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. What a treasure!! We walked in, were warmly greeted and seated. To my surprise, a former colleague was at a table right next to us! I haven't seen her in... More
