At the end of the 19th century, L’Officina was a workshop for repairing scales and balances, and the site for the national stamping and calibration of scales. Today, L’Oficina is one of the best restaurants in Perugia.
The restaurant was opened in May 2005, keeping the original structure of the old building and utilizing the original materials. On the ground floor, the wood originates from the begining of the 20th century.
With a large selection of 450 wines from all over the world, a bar and a kitchen completely open to view, L’Officina proposes the „Osmosis of the senses”, being an innovative meeting point that can satisfy the sense of smell, taste, sight, hearing and touch.
The cultural programme, sponsored by the city of Perugia, provides alternating art exhibitions, book presentations, poetry readings and musical evenings, accompanied by wine tastings and culinary experiments and demonstrations.
