    Glad I tried with two friends this little restaurant. Choices of tasting menus are wide enough for the type of restaurant. Service was nice and attentive, perhaps a tad slow start in the beginning but perfect if you have nice company. Food very good especially duck breast - rabbit tortellini were a good dish but we're expecting a stronger taste. Price is fair.

    This is one restaurant I will definitely be going back to. The food and service were first class. Set menus, even one vegetarian but you could mix and match dishes from each. The terrine di maiale e foie gras was incredibly flavorful and the pasta dish with tartufo nero was to die for. Suggest you book in advance as we saw at least 5 other parties being turned away.

    It’s a hidden gem that would deserve at least 1 Michelin star. The ambience and service was spot on. The menu was well executed with surprises, there are a few dishes that just show the chef’s confidence & technique! The amuse bouche, starter & meat courses were amazing! Highly recommend!

    Amazing tasting experience, precise description of all ingredients, deconstructed plates that can still offer a great taste of the Italian cuisine.

    Modern, smart interior with white tablecloths. Staff were very welcoming and immediately attentive and explained the tasting menu very well. A windowed kitchen presented two busy, very organised and cheerful chefs who clearly knew what they were doing as the food was delicious and couldn't be faulted. Each course was beautifully presented and very different to most Umbria fare. Will definitely be returning.

    This is a tiny two man operation, more like an artist's atelier than a restaurant in which the chef plays with a pallette of tastes, colors and textures. An immensely satisfying experience!

    Aversso is an amazing restaurant. It is beautiful in design and the food and service are both impeccable. It is the finest dining experience we have had in our Italian trip, and highly recommended for anyone visiting Perugia.

    I may have just lucked upon one of the best meals of my life. The tasting menu was one delectable surprise after another. Each course was light, subtly flavored to perfection and presented in unexpected ways. Each course progressively topped the one before. I was dining alone so this made the meal an especially entertaining adventure. I felt very taken care of by the attentive owner, something one doesn’t always experience as a woman dining alone in Italy, or anywhere for that matter.. In short, this was an experience, more than a meal, and my taste buds are still singing. My evening was something far beyond anything I had imagined. If you are fortunate enough to be in Perugia, you need to take a break from the typical fare and treat yourself to something You will never forget. As I told the owner: “Ritornerei a Perugia solo per mangiare di nuovo qui.”

    Excellent food and wine and first class service from an extremely knowledgeable waitress. I would come again the next time I am in Perugia which I hope is soon.

    This small and delicately pulled together restaurant has the most exquisite food we have eaten in Umbria. The quality of ingredients, attention to detail, beautifully crafted plates without pretension but so carefully construed were simply outstanding. The chef is the owner and he pulls his menu together as art. We had such a beautiful evening and appreciated it so much. Cannot wait to return, highly recommended.

    Modern Italian cuisine, very well executed. We were surprised with 2 amuse bouche, followed by dishes such as zucchini flower tempura, handmade pasta and slowcooked lamb. Service was very friendly and attentive. We had a really great night out. Only point of feedback was that a lot of the local red wine was low or out of stock, so we had to switch wines halfway through the meal.

    After a week of amazing traditional Umbrian cuisine, reviews of Avverso let me know we were in for a treat. The room is bright, clean, and modern. An impressive list of French and Italian wines is available, along with a creative bar selection. We went with the tasting “Controverso”. Other tastings with known dishes were available, but we prefer to be surprised. There was plenty of food. Some small appetizers arrived, and antipasti, primi, secondi, and a dessert followed. There were traditional things like tortelli in brodo and grilled duck breast. There were twists on traditional dishes: the roast pork starter came with foie gras, grain mustard and apple pie, and the chocolate tortino (lava cake) was scented with orange. And then there were creative surprises, like the paccheri pasta nibble. A single fried noodle stuffed with ricotta! (Paccheri were sometimes used to smuggle garlic into German-speaking lands, I thought it was fun for it to be used again as a transport vessel.) The meal was great, the pacing was perfect, and the staff are a bunch of knowledgeable professionals. Our meal was delicious and substantial, but I did not feel overly full. In my opinion it is a good value at €40. I was happy that so many ingredients were sourced locally, or at least regionally. At the same time, it was a relief not to have truffles, porcini, and wild boar ragù yet again. I love them, but they were on the menu all over Umbria. I went to Avverso to do something different, and I left without disappointment.

    This is a very modern looking restaurant with a modern open kitchen. They have a number of set menu's that offer something for everyone. We had one normal menu and one veggie menu. The normal menu was really good and as a meat eater I was blown away by the veggie menu (we shared all dishes). The amuses beforehand and little nibbles afterward make it very good value for money. In short one of the better food experiences we had during all of our Italy trips.

    An excellent find . The food was imaginative and plentiful with three extra courses. A pleasant space and remarkable value for money. No negatives.

    We tried two of the tasting menus, and they were both excellent. We enjoyed the small plates of interesting foods.
