We had a decent mixed antipasti for two but the main courses of stinco di maiale and braciola di maiale were unbelievable. Some of the best pork I've ever had. The only disappointment was a lack of side dish options but maybe they had stuff off-menu. Service was good too.

Ate dinner here on a rainy Saturday evening. Just outside the city walls by Porta Pesa, but a gentle ten-minute stroll from the cathedral down the winding Via Bontempi off Piazza Piccinino. I have to say that I didn't notice any obvious tourist traps in Perugia (restaurant-wise) but, if there were, I agree with previous reviewers that this would be... More

After you pass through the center of town and skip all the Ristoranti touting a fixed price Menu Turistico, you will find La Lumera on Corso Bersaglieri. It is well worth the excursion. The day we arrived, the town was filled with Chocoholics indulging in every manner of chocolate product one can imagine. Since it was lunch time, every trattoria... More

We found this restaurant near our hotel (Hotel Perusia). We didn't notice it at first until we heard voices and saw some tables down the alleyway at the side. We sat at a table in the alleyway because it was too hot to sit inside. We were greeted by the chef who made us very welcome. The food was excellent... More

We spent three weeks in Perugia and went to La Lumera several times. We were never disappointed. When all the locals go there you know it's good. La Lumera is a part of the Slow Food Movement and their local/slow food antipasta was wonderful. The food was fresh, local and delicious, I always find when you see people from the... More

We went to this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. The bread was AWFUL. It tasted like cardboard. The food was better-ish but I wouldn't go back.
