Bibenda Assisi

Wine Bar in Assisi

This rustic-chic wine bar is Assisi's best for exploring wines and beyond. Nila, a highly knowledgable Ukrainian transplant, will talk you through a wine list she has assembled from small, boutique producers and tiny appellations – all served in proper Riedel glassware – and paired with tasting plates of local salumi e formaggi. Call ahead to reserve one of two outside tables.

Prepare for surprises: an orange wine made by Latial nuns; or sublime reds like Sportletti's Villa Fidelia Rossa (90+ Robert Parker scores without the price shock).
