Italian cuisine was born when, after building the city of Rome, Romulus and Remus discovered Greece didn't deliver to their new address.

Founded by a native Perugian and a globetrotting gourmand, File Bene Ristorante Italiano slings dishes crafted from fresh ingredients in traditional Apennine style. Extensive dinner and lunch menus penned in dactylic hexameter display a range of first entrees, including the manicotti al cinghiale, which stuffs its homemade noodles with wild boar braised in chianti ($18), and fettucine capesante al pesto, whose jumbo scallops scatter amidst the dish's pasta and basil-based sauce ($23). Second entrees jostle to be chosen, with the dried-tomato-and-chardonnay-tossed salmone alla griglia ($22) calling for attention from a bed of garlic polenta. Fila Bene's pizzas ($7.50–$9) offer full cover to dinner plates hiding from low-hanging beards and form teams of both white and red.

Guests at File Bene pass beneath a Venetian glass chandelier in the restaurant's foyer before a polished dark-wood bar greets them in the main dining room. Simple place settings leave the spotlight shining on the eatery's flavorful dishes, though warmly lit Florentine art hung along crimson walls steal occasional glances from eyes that stray past their meals.

Customer Reviews

Thank you for a memorable evening! The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing, which is sometimes hard to find in a place that has such divine food and great service!

Love the decor and great wild mushroom polenta!

Nice atmosphere, quiet enough to easily have a conversation with others at our table (4). Food was good. Waiter was a little bit overbearing in his efforts to take care of us but kind and pleasant.
