Under the arch in via Nepis we discovered the wonderful wine bar Bibenda where the most helpful lady Nila explained to us the history of the wine Peccorino which was most interesting. There is also an option to have a selection of proscuitto and cheeses to compliment whichever wine you choose.The weather was extremely hot and sitting in the archway... More

Bibenda is one of those gems you come across once in a while. Nestled in one of the streets close to the piazza in wonderful Assisi, it will leave you with fond memories. Nila, the owner and host makes you feel very relaxed and welcome. She's extremely knowledgeable about wines and local specialities and will tell as you as much... More

We were already familiar with Bibenda when we made our return visit late last night and, because we had enjoyed it so much before, it was the very first place that we went to after checking into our hotel. Nila greeted us like long lost friends and it wasn't long before we were enjoying a glass of wine together catching... More

This place is awesome. Loved my experience so much the first time that I went right back the very next evening! The staff is totally accessible and amazingly open to having a dialogue about their wine list. This is how wine service should be. I had delicious wine and a cheese plate for € 9,50. Love it!

Myself and my wife visited Assisi last week and ended up going to this wine bar three times. The setting was very good and it was very intimate and relaxing. The wines are outstanding and the service very good indeed. Try the meats and cheeses! It was our little relaxation spot away from the crowd. Thank you.

we had a glass of wine here, very nice service from the friendly owner. however, the prices for the wines to buy are quite steep, no local wines under 20 euros/bottle. good for a glass, not so much for the bottles :)

My girlfriends and I were here in mid June. We found this place by coincidence and were very pleasantly surprised! The wine, cheeses, music and service were superb. We were helped with our wine selections by a very sweet lady named Nila who was not only very knowledgable, but equally as fun. All in all, I recommend this place highly,... More

Three of my friends and I went back to Bibenda Assisi. Once again, we were not disappointed! Excellent selection of domestic and international wines. Amazing cheese recommendations. Service was stellar and pleasant. This place is amazing and I almoust wish it was in my neighborhood instead of in Assisi. I would totally be a regular if it was.

I went there for a wine tasting, was really happy with the wine choices and explications. Nila is a perfect sommelier very knowledgeable. Best wine tasting and activity you can have in Assisi. The place is incredible.

This is my 15th year to bring Americans to Italy twice a year, and we love Assisi. My favorite place to take the Americans to taste the many wines is BIBENDA ASSISI! We LOVE Bibenda and it's located right on top of the beautiful fairy-tale village of Assisi. You will LOVE the owner, Nila, too! Nila is so knowledgeable of... More
