Great Italian Cuisine

Restaraunts in Umbria

Our Rating5/5
Ristorante Masolino

Via del Filatoio, 4 – Panicale

This is one of our favourite restaurants. It’s locatated in the lovely, medieval village of Panicale. With friendly and knowledgeable staff (Andrea knows his wines!), excellent local dishes, a great wine selection and with very affordable prices, it is not for nothing that we keep coming back here. Try the house specialty: ‘Faraona in crosta’ (guinea fowl in crust), or ‘Tagliatelle al tartufo’ and ‘Linguine ai sapori di Lago’ (Linguine with fish from the lake). You can also sit outside in the little street, or (for 2 persons only) on the balcony overlooking Lake Trasimeno, but you have to ask for it in advance!

Ristorante Lilo Tatini

Piazza Umberto I, 13, Panicale

This is another favourite of ours. Tatini is part of the ‘Slow Food’ organisation and this tells you that you are in for a truly gastronomic experience. The owner Patrizia serves local Umbrian dishes, often recreated from an ancient past. Tatini is also an enoteca, so you will not be disappointed in the wine selection! The resteraunt looks over the main historic piazza of the lovely village of panicale and has a terrace during the summer season. All in all a great place.

Ristorante Villa di Monte Solare

Villa Montali 7,Colle S. Paolo

If you want something a bit more fancy (but still very reasonable prices), you will like this  historic villa outside of Tavernelle (on the way to Perugia turn left to ‘Colle S. Paolo’ and follow the signs for Hotel ‘Villa di Monte Solare’). Elegant setting both inside or outside. Fresh twists on Umbrian cuisine with mostly local and organic produce. Knowledgeable and warm sommelier will guide you through the fine regional wines. Service and setting makes for a special but not stuffy experience. Weather permitting, a lunch on the terrace outside is also highly recommendable.

Ristorante Divin Peccato

Via Trasimeno 95, Panicarola 

Lovely food and inexpensive, this restaurant is another gem. Check out tripadvisor for some good  menu tips. We love the ‘guanchale’! Be mindful that the restaurant is closed on Wednesdays.

Ristorante Salt'in Bocca

via della Resistenza 154, Tavernelle


If you want quality food for incredibly low prices and close to Casale Sento, then this is the place for you. It is an unpretentious restaurant and not very cosy on the inside, but in the summer you can enjoy the outside small terrace, where you will be surprised with the quality of the home made pasta's and open fire roasted meat dishes. Pizza's from 3,95 euro. How is it possible? Just try it!

Ristorante Montali

Via Montali 23, Tavernelle 

This restaurant is somewhat ‘off the beaten track’ and is located at the end of a long, unpaved road. However, as it is chosen as one of the ’10 best vegetarian restaurants in the world’ by the BBC, we think it’s worth the drive. Chef Maria Lucia has combined the Italian kitchen with South American and other inspiration. The menu (4 courses) is fixed (with some flexibility), but we have always been positively surprised with the ‘haute cuisine’ and we are not vegetarian!
