We returned to Bibenda after discovering it last year and it really was as lovely as remembered, we ate and drank outside on the cute little seats built into the walls. We shared a bottle of prosecco and sampled bread with olive oils and local meat and cheeses, all of which were delicious! Nila is so friendly and takes time... More

The perfect wine bar - Nila has masterful knowledge of wine and offers the absolute most delicious meats, cheeses and breads to snack on while enjoying unique and spectacular wines (best wines we had in Italy - including an Umbrian wine that received a 96 from Parker's - we shipped a case home) each of which is graciously poured for...

The gorgeous Nila greets you with the warmest of welcomes. Her knowledge of local, regional and imported wines was impressive but never smug. Bibenda became our watering hole whilst studying language in Assisi. We felt like old friends by the time we finally farewelled Nila with hugs and tears! Treat yourself!

Very knowledgable about her wine and has no problem in sharing some of it :) Nila was super enough to connect us with a Cheese store close by. They went over the board to open up on the Sunday to receive us! Thanks a... More

This is one of my favorite places in Assisi. I have been over ten times during my six weeks in Assisi. Nila, the owner, is one of the most friendly people in the world and is very willing to help with any of your questions. The bar has an ambience that immerses you in the culture of Europe. There is... More

I have been studying here in Assisi for 6 weeks, and Bibenda was my absolute favorite place to wind down after a long day of classes. Nila, the owner, is not only very friendly, but is vastly knowledgable and passionate. Furthermore, she has the best collection of delicious local wines. The atmosphere is fun; the music is the perfect blend... More
