We've been to Il Nuovo Perugino many times and I must say, this is one of the most consistently top-performing restaurants in all of Puerto Rico. The food is consistently delicious, the service is second to none, and the ambiance is relaxed and quiet. You will not be disappointed!

Went for a Valentine's Day dinner and we were surprised to learn the only option was a prix fixe 5-course menu for $75, but the meal was an excellent value for the price, including an amuse-bouche to begin. The food was excellent, all was fresh, great tasting and nicely presented. Just the right amount and some good house wine to accompany it. Beautiful space/ambience, great choice for a romantic dinner.

Some items were good and some not so good. The Calamari Fritto you could tell they were fry in old oil.
We have to returned them. Some items like the Octopus from the appetizer was great. Some items were unavailable. I was expecting a lot more.

The food options and offerings are now disappointing are not as good they once were. The menu is quite limited and nothing like before it’s a sad resemblance of its former past.

i made a reservation one month in advance and was exited to experience the food. we arrived and fell in love the the decor and that was the only highlight of the evening. an unfriendly hostess let us to an anex room that was harshly lit with no other guests. it happened to be restaurant week so we decided to try the pre-fixe menu. the first course (salad) was enjoyable. the second course (pasta) was good. for the third course we chose the filet mingon milanese-a major disappointment. this dish had clearly been pre-pared and tasted as if it had been frozen before reheating; it was cold and tasteless. normally i would have sent it back, however, we had already waited so long due to the slow service we just wanted to eat and leave (we skipped the desert course). also, i told the wine steward what we were having and asked him to bring a complementing bottle of wine. it was very close to the end of its shelf life, which is not what i would of expected given their nice, but expensive, wine list. we were dressed up and the restaurant was not crowded so i am at a loss why everything was off

Another wonderful dining experience thanks to Puerto Rico restaurant week. It was my first time at Ill Nuovo Perugino, so been able to try it with a special tasting menu was just great. My choices were: pasta e fagioni, gorgonzola and pear risotto, lamb chops and apple tart. Every dish was beautifully plated and delicious!!! The service was attentive, well timed and the ambiance relaxed and enjoyable. Overall, a great dinner with friends!!! We will be back soon!!!

Escogimos el lugar sin tener referencias antes del lugar. Hicimos reservacion, pues era nuestro 16 aniversario de bodas. Desde que llegamos hasta despedirnos del lugar fue una experiencia maravillosa. Todos los meseros que nos atendieron fueron de gran ayuda y de muy buen trato. La comida fue de cuatro cursos, y pedimos cosas diferentes para probar mas del menu, y todo fue exquisito. Buen sabor y nada sobre condimentado.

Service was horrible -- one and a half-hours to get some bread and wine. My polite complaints did not result in any improvements.

Our wine cork broke while opening the wine bottel and wine was filtered using a napking -- in a restaurant that calls itself an enoteca!

Served dishes must have stayed in the kitched a while before being served because part of the food in my plate was cold. I just ate it, afraid to send it back and having to wait another two hours for a replacement.

Skipped dessert as by the time we finished eating, we had been in the restaurant for 3.5 hours.

Food was good but they need to get their act together.

Il Nuovo Perugino Enoteca is one of the very best authentic Italian restaurants In San Juan .
My girlfriend and I have eaten there many times. Usually it’s a special date night and sometimes we’ve taken friends and family.
The entire staff is very friendly and are all long time employees.
Excellent service always a great chef special or 2 like the Branzini or the veal chop, perhaps a rissoto of the day.
And you have to have the chocolate soufflé.

Our experience was Excellent, we will definitely be back. The mix of taste was out of the ordinary. The service started slow, but they caught on during appetizers. The setting is as beautiful as can be. The Lobby of the Popular Center and the Restaurant are exquisite. We had the price fixed 4 course and was plenty of food. Keep it up
