Our Favorite Restaurants

Perugia Corciano
Our favorite restaurant,Caffe di Perugia, has unfortunately closed. We recommend instead Antica Trattoria San Lorenzo, in Piazza Dante in the Centro Storico of Perugia.
Ristorante Il Convento, Via del Serraglio.
Wonderful atmosphere in an old, restored convent, with outdoor dining in the summer. Typical Umbrian cuisine.
The Collins Restaurant, in the hotel Sina Brufani just to the left when you come up the moving stairway from Partigiani parking, is generally very good. There's also a nice bar with views of the countryside. Pizzeria Anema e Cuore - in the industrial section south of town. This is the best pizza we have found in the area.
Sant'Egidio (right across from the airport)
La Locanda Paradiso is a hotel and restaurant lovingly restored by our geometra Andrea and managed by Andrea and Carla. Lunch is a huge buffet for a great price, and dinner is always a special selection. Very traditional dishes with an eclectic touch and superb service. L'Osteria del Bosco, one of our favorites just down the road. The remodeled interior is modern but the outdoor dining in the summer is wonderful, The food, carefully sourced, is always fantastic. Luigi, the owner, will recommend special dishes and wines and make you feel at home.
MontefalcoSan Marino
Ristorante Il Verziere, Corso Goffredo Mameli 22. Eclectic decoration - to say the least! Try the lardo,the pizza and of course the wines.If you make it up to San Marino, have lunch at the Ritrovo dei Lavoratori, just down the steps from the main street. Try the steak, or anything with truffles or mushrooms.
