In the panorama of restaurants in Perugia, Stella rapresents a point of reference for those wishing to savour traditional dishes, lightened to meet modern standards by limited use of fats and use of cooking techniques that emphasize the properties of the ingredients without prejudice to taste and the pleasures of eating.
The food is prepared by hand, with carefully selected seasonal products and recipes handed down over the years in our family.
“Research and knowledge of the raw materials combine with the pleasure of hospitality. An important stage in getting to know the Umbria of wines and gastronomy“.
Slow Food Alliance
The Ristorante Stella has been listed in the Osterie Slow Food d’Italia guide since 2003 ( it was listed with a snail in 2009) and belongs to the Alleanza Slow Food dei Cuochi, a network of chefs form hostelries, restaurents, bistrots and street food kitchens.
Excellent restaurant. It feels at home. Excellent value for money. When you eat wild boar and it is more tender than butter, there is little to say. Very well.
Beautiful location, highly trained staff and good, genuine and refined dishes. The quality of the raw material is unquestionable, as well as the love they put into serving and welcoming customers. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Stella has been a point of reference in Perugia for years. The restaurant is very elegant, many details make it welcoming, the dining room staff is polite and well-prepared and above all the menu is full of surprises. Attention to seasonality and quality local raw materials are the masters.
“52 out 1617 Umbrian hostelries are recommended in the guidebook Osterie d’Italia 2019. These include 6 Snails (the hostelries particularly in line with the Slow Food philosophy), one Cheese, 12 Bottles and, this year’s novelty, 13 enterprises recommended for their particular attention towards extra virgin olive oil, both in their cuisine and in the restaurant.“
For Slow Food, the city’s hostelry par excellence, starting from its wine list which pays great attention to bio and the territory. Also available by the glass. We seek the best from every corner of Umbria, including freshwater products – see our dishes such as linguine with smoked tench and roast eel. Then, the meats of Visso (taste the rare handmade ham), stringhetti, tripe…and the excellent homemade ice cream.
Monday-Saturday open only for evening meal.
Sunday open only at lunchtime (except in July and August when we are open only for the evening meal).
