Al Tartufo (located on Via Ulisse Rocchi) was my first introduction to the food of Perugia, and I was not disappointed. I ordered the Flan di ricotta con pera al vino e miele al tartufo as an appetizer (pictured below), which words could never describe. I’m not a huge fan of flan, but this one was very fresh and the pear complimented the ricotta perfectly.
For my actual meal I ordered the Gnocchi scottati su fonduta di grana (pictured below), which was also my first time trying Gnocchi. I was very impressed, and I can honestly call this one of the best meals I ever ate (second only to a small Italian restaurant in Luxembourg City).
Al Tartufo is very reasonably priced, and I would certainly visit it again to try even more of their dishes if given the opportunity to return to Perugia. If you’re interested in learning more about this restaurant, you can check out their Facebook and remember to keep them in mind if you’re ever visiting Italy!
