Pinturicchio service and food never fails! Richard makes amazing food and is extremely friendly! They're the only place to offer brunch in Perugia and its fantastic! Each Thursday they offer a different cuisine aperitivo that makes for an extremely fun atmosphere. This is an absolute "must" when in Perugia!

I found this place when I arrived in Perugia and came back twice in the next two days. The food and coffee were good, and the staff was very friendly. Most of all I liked the relaxed atmosphere. My favorite café in Italy.

We went here for breakfast a few times and dinner. The food was amazing and the people working were extremely friendly. Comfortable chairs to sit, chat and have great food and drinks. Richard was amazing and made us feel like we were sitting in our home enjoying a great meal. A must visit if you’re ever in Perugia

Pinturicchio Cafe+Kitchen is my favorite cafe-bar in Perugia, a home away from home. The staff speak English and Italian, the music is low key but familiar, Richard's snacks are superb (what he does with chicken wings is pure genius), the angel cakes melt in the mouth, the coffee is good and the ambience is redolent of friendship. The occasions with live music are intimate. Its set-up allows for private conversions or a quiet read. Small groups of students often call in from the nearby campuses, yet if you are seeking time for a quiet drink or a coffee, stroll down from the main square, turn right through the magnificence of the Etruscan Arch, cross the street and walk a 100 metres to forget for a while that you are in a busy tourist town.

I came here after reading positive reviews. It's interesting, trying to be Art Deco in style and different. The ambience is a little dark and oppressive though.

The bathroom did not have a lock on it so I embarrassingly opened the door while someone was on the toilet, how can you not put a lock or a key in the bathroom so people can have their privacy!? So I didn't go fearing someone would open it.

I avoid gluten and I did my research to see on the internet beforehand if there were gluten free options and it states that there are, but this is completely misleading as there are no gluten free options and my choice there was very limited. I ordered some beans and tortilla chips but it was again very average, it doesn't really cater much to gluten free/vegan people. Again just another average quality cafe in Perugia
