Old But Fine Hotel

Great location. Built in the 15th century. In the center of town. No elevator but our host carried our luggage up to our room. Had a view of the castle high on the hill. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful.

For those people who talk about slow service, well ... this is Italy and this is one of the more local restaurants around. That said, I agree it's slow. This place has English menu's and most of the waiters do speak some English but they're clearly not trying to become a tourist attraction. I probably could have rated this a... More

We were four hungry tourists stopping in for lunch. We ordered the 18 Euro tourist menu and were delighted with it. First of all the restaurant provided two carafes of water - one fizzy and one plain. There was no charge which is very unusual in Europe. Then came bread, wonderful pasta, meat dishes and large portions of side dishes.... More

I came without a reservation and they accommodated me anyway. I sat for a few with a nice cappuccino and listened to the sounds of the restaurant. Simply beautiful.

This restaurant was also recommended by our hotel, Sorella Luna (read a separate review on this great hotel). We stopped by for lunch and ordered fried rice ball with saffron, bean & zucchini flower soup, gnocchi with porchini mushroom and mixed grilled meat. All were excellent! My favorites were the rice ball and gnocchi (had a light, fluffy texture and... More

This restaurant was recommended by our guide book. The menu included fish and classic Tuscan/Umbrian fare that was expertly prepared. The interior is quiet, refined and cozy, a good spot for a quiet dinner with a friend, loved one or business associate. One of the things that set this restaurant apart was the list of wines available by the glass... More

This place was recommended to me by our driver who lives in Assisi. It is directly across from the Roman Temple in Assisi. The food is great, the service is great and the ambiance is warm. I had the pigeon alla ghiatta (stuffed pigeon) and it was fantastic. I was a little wary about ordering pigeon but I loved it.... More

I had read the reviews on trip advisor prior to travelling to Assisi and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the food was very good. The wine was also very good. Such a delightful experience. I would certainly advise anybody to pay a visit you will not be disappointed.

We had dinner here and went for the "Eno Degustazione Territorio", a selection of regional dishes. The food is simple, fresh, tasty and well prepared, just as you want it to be after a day running up and down Assisi`s mystique-drenched alleys. The portions are extremely generous and we were even offered a tasting of a dish that was not... More
