Description: In the Piazza Del Comune, right in front of the Temple of Minerva, you pass an arch known as “Volta Pinta” with the marvellous grotesques painted by Raffaellino Del Colle in the sixteenth century. Trattoria Pallotta is discretely set apart, at the end.The simple decor will make you feel the familial warmth. Before being seated at your table, ask to visit the cellar that was discovered during the renovation works. Here you will find many regional labels as well as a small selection of national wines, some of which are served by the glass.Margherita looks after the preparation of the meals, using prime local produce and will always offer you new seasonal dishes, staying faithful to the tradition.

I was at Trattoria Pallotta while visiting Assisi in April 2014. We found the place in the Lonely Planet guidebook and were happy with our choice! As it was written in the guidebook there were no lunch after 15 o'clock. So we booked the table in advance and came by that time but had to wait a bit when we... More

We ate here in October 2013. We booked earlier in the day and were glad we had as the restaurant was booked out and they were turning people away. We ate an excellent meal and drank a good bottle of Tuscan red wine. It is tucked away off the main piazza and down some stairs so may be difficult to... More

Just off the Piazza Comune under the fresco tunnel, you will walk into a real jewel in dining. Make a reservation to ensure you can get in...then be prepared for a fabulous experience. We were there on Christmas Day and were treated to local Christmas dishes. Pasta was an artichoke lasagna and orange stuff cannelloni. Secondi was grilled veal with... More

Great atmosphere! Good food! Nice people! One of the few great places in Assisi. I would reccommend it for people looking for real, high-quality local food.

My husband and I absolutely devoured our meals from Pallotta. We began with an antipasto of meats, olives, fried rice ball (personal fave), bruschetta, soufflé and a yummy quiche. EXQUISITE!!!! He got the rabbit and I got the steak filet and potato - words cannot describe the outstanding flavor both of these dishes had. We were beyond impressed! HIGHLY recommended!... More

My wife and I ate here Sunday Night, November 2, 2014. We both loved our meals, and the house red wine was superb. We had been in Assisi for 3 days and ate at other highly rated places. This was by far the best. It is in a little side alley that goes down hill from the Commune Plaza. First,... More

Perhaps we went on a bad night but I'm at a loss to understand why this restaurant rates so highly with other reviewers. The portions are huge but the food is very crude and treated with no particular skill or artistry. The mixed grill I had for my main course was particularly poor. It looked like an enormous amount on... More

We had read reviews and Trattoria Pallotta was top of my list to visit while in Assisi. We went for a late lunch and were able to get a table without a reservation, although they were full. I sensed I was in the right place when I saw the beautiful little dog sitting on the bar stool as we entered,... More

We tried to dine here on a Thursday evening, but they were busy so we booked for the following evening. We had a very enjoyable meal with nothing to complain about. I had the bruschetta antipasti, I loved the way that it was served with a fresh fig. The pasta and the main courses were delicious. It's a very pleasant... More

La Pallotta is the best table in Assisi, just across from the ancient temple of Minerva, and downstairs (look for a recessed entrance). I wish I had thought to stay there, but I did the hotels in April and the restos later. I wish I had thought to do the whole trip by train as a car can be a... More
