    Best in Perugia

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 23, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is probably the best restaurant of Perugia. Unfortunatelly, I don't remember the name of it but you cannot miss it because it is situated in the heart of the old core of the town, right on the Piazza Maggiore.

    Favorite Dish: We have trusted in the weither's suggestions, il primo piatto; spaghetti al olio e pepperoncino, ilsecondo: orata grillata (was delicious), after that we had Pinot Grigio from Colio.

    Ristorante Caffe di Perugia: The world's best calzone

    by Bunsch Written Nov 27, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The superior calzone, before consumption

    Hot. Footsore. Put out because we missed the museums. So we stagger into this splendid restaurant whose air conditioning is set at Stun. Lots of white tablecloths; it looks a little too elite for our plebeian tastes. We are shown to a table up a winding, frescoed stairway but the waitress is actually assigned to tables below and we eventually decide that, heat be damned, we'd rather eat out in the piazza where a more cavalier atmosphere prevails.

    Good choice. The Prosecco perked us up and calmed our pique, and then we got the very best calzones I've ever tasted. It turned out to be a gustatory highlight and, given the portion size, I got to enjoy bites over the next couple of days. Incredible.

    Favorite Dish: I am sure there are much fancier items to be had, especially in the ritzy portion of this restaurant, but if I go back to Perugia again, you'd better believe I'll be ordering another calzone.

    This restrant serve local dishes, you pay just 13 euro for fix course manù and you can't order single dish, to drink you need pay extra but very economy; 2 euro for one bottle of red wine.
    The menù for example, appetizer, two type of pasta, meat, vegetables, bread and dessert, I repeat, the manù is fixed! you don't have any option to choice. It good to eat meat dish with local bread and dessert. I like also atmospher of this restrant, ambienced in Middle age?
    the menù wrote in local language. it's better to book. close on Monday

    Favorite Dish: Apptizer is three tipe of bruschetta with tomato, onion and salvia butter.
    Two type of pasta, 1 dish of penne with tomato souce and other one dish is dipence of the day and seoson, they prepare risotto too, but don't expect good pasta, Perugia is not a location where has pasta culture, choice a day when serve risotto.
    meat dish and vegetable, it's main of this reatrant, they make a big dish.
    Dessert, good chance to tast local sweets?

    La Taverna: Wonderful fine dining

    by deebum25 Written Sep 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wonderful fine dining. We went for dinner and although I was wearing shorts (the reviews I'd read were for lunch and made it sound like a casual restaurant) we were seated promptly albeit a little in the back! We had the house wine which was lovely, my husband enjoyed what he called the "perfect osso bucco" and I had a wonderfully fresh salmon with cream sauce. Much as we wanted to we could not fit dessert but we had a wonderful time. The maitre'd does speak English as well.

    Vecchia Perusia: Fun at Frenk Banana's Trattoria!

    by Rita_ Updated Aug 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Myself & my friends at Vecchia Perusia

    If you visit Perugia don't miss this cosy Restaurant in the very heart of the city.
    Its owner, Frenk Banana, is an ex boxer and he is a real character! This trattoria has been visited by all the most famous faces of the italian show-business and politics (look at the pics on the walls). If Frenk likes you and if he doesn't bugger you off within the first 5 minutes of your stay in its restaurant (!), fun is guaranteed.
    Unique atmosphere, anarchic but fun (you'll see why) and great food!

    Pizzeria: Don't go there - it's our place!

    by Natie Updated Jul 5, 2007

    If you want to try the real pizza from Napoli, you should visit one of these 2 famous among local people pizzerie (I can't tell the name, but everybody knows it). One of them, situated near Fontana Maggiore (Piazza 4 Novembre) is a small place. If you go there in the evening you can spend an hour waiting for free table - but don't worry. Just ask for a number and have a nice walk along the central street - Corso Vannucci, enjoying windowshopping.
    Another pizzeria is situated on an opposite end of the hill (closer to the parkings). It's bigger but not less crowdy.
    For a lot of locals it's a tradition - to have Saturday pizza in one of these pizzerie. Here I spend my first evening in Italy and tried my first italian pizza.
    If you go there with a couple of friends share with them "pizza al cioccolato" (made with nutella) for desert.
    To my taste the best are provola (a kind of cheese), con peperoni and mediterranea.

    Pizzeria Mediterraneo: Awesome Authentic and Well-Priced Pizza

    by Phisheads1 Updated May 30, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very authentic "Pizza Napolitana." Cooked in a wood-oven and ample choices of topping. Economically priced. CLOSED TUESDAYS. A full pizza should be enough of a meal, no need to share. There is another not as good Pizza Mediterraneo but that one is Take-Out only.

    Favorite Dish: Any pizza is fine. A couple general notes to amateur Italian travelers:
    -If you want regular non-carbonated water ask for "acqua senza gas"
    -In Italy pepperoni=Peppers (if you want "american" pepperoni look for a pizza with salumi)

    Sandri Pasticceria: Who's counting calories?

    Sweets at Sandri Pasticceria, Perugia, Italy

    Perugia is famous for its chocolates and sweets. We went to one of the most famous dessert shops of all -- the Sandri Pasticceria.

    Be sure to walk in and check out all the desserts. Merely looking at them is an amazing experience. You will, of course, have to eat one as well.

    All of the desserts are original signature desserts of Sandri and all have their own names.

    Lunch at La Lanterna, Perugia, Italy

    We stopped by this charming restaurant with its brightly covered tablecloths and wisteria covered patio for lunch. We had pasta and dessert, and the food was delicious. It was also a nice place to rest our feet and relax with a crisp Italian chardonnay.

    Sandri Pasticcera: Take out dolci

    by karenincalifornia Written Mar 3, 2005

    Dolci from Sandri Pasticceria, Perugia, Italy

    This is a picture of the delicious chocolate dessert we bought at Sandri Pasticceria to take home and have with our dinner that night. This one is one of Sandri's famous desserts (I think they all are), and it has a name, but I have forgotten it.

    Sandri packages up your take out dessert in a nice little box, tied with a nice little gold string. Sandri's packing skills are impressive - after all they have been doing this for over 150 years. We carried our dessert all the way through the streets of Perugia, down the steps to the parking lot and drove it 30 minutes home to Todi. This picture shows the dessert AFTER all that transporting. And see...it looks like a waiter had just moments before served it on our table!
