Visited Bibenda Assisi twice on our 4 day trip to Assisi as part of our honeymoon. Both times my husband and I tried different flights of wine. We had the same server on both visits. Nila was brilliant, friendly, approachable and knowledgable about the wines that we had chosen. I was pleasantly surprised to try a sparkling Sagrantino that was... More

My friend and I stopped in here to have a "glass" of wine before heading out to dinner. Very romantic atmosphere. Selection of wines is really impressive. The wine flights were fabulous and great value! I had a rose flight. I love rose but it's hard to find good crisp rose that isn't sweet! They nailed it! Each one was... More

We spent a wonderful evening with a couple of friends in this peaceful oasis, away from the noise and chaos which unfortunately characterize a lot of assisian establishments. The service really attentive and professional, the wine list full of great surprises. Prices are really reasonable considering the level of the establishment. You can have a superb cheeses, salami and bruschetta.... More

Had a late evening drink at this wine bar next to Piazza di Comune. Really liked romantic atmosphere of the place. Thay have a pretty large selection of wines by the glass and several offers for wine flights. Our waitress had extensive knowledge of European wines. We had a long conversation about italian wine and varietals. She proposed interesting Umbrian... More

Great selection of wines and cold appetizers. Owner is very knowledgable about wine and a good person. Prices for take away wine are steep an touristy, but for wine tasting reasonable. Thanks again for letting me buy your stash of cheese and smoked meat!

On a recent visit to Assisi, my instinct directed me towards Bibenda Assisi and upon checking tripadvisor, my instinct was then supported by rave reviews. The place is cosy, packed with different wines. Nila (the owner) is a well-read sommelier who willingly offers expert advice on the different wines available. She is also very welcoming and passionate about wines and... More

A friend and I visited Bibenda Assisi to explore the wonderful wines of Italy about a year ago. Once you enter this mysterious cavern you won't want to leave. Nila, the owner, makes you feel as if you have been friends for a lifetime. Nila introduced us to several locals and travelers and made us feel right at home. We... More

After hitting all the regular Assisi spots we found this small, down an alley place and stopped in. Nila, the resident sommelier was most friendly and helpful and most of all had some really neat wines for us to try. Being from the US, it is always great to try wines that we would never be able to get at... More

Needed a light 'lunch' so opted for the wine bar. We relaxed after walking around Assisi, sipping lovely wine and eating the tasty selection of meats, cheeses and breads with olive oil. All four of us agreed that the olive oil was the best we've ever tasted! Thank you Bibenda, a superb wine bar.
