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.

Dined here during our stay in Assisi. Comfortable and somewhat elegant place but meals were expensive and did not knock me out compared to other small places discovered during our travels. Perhaps it is due to the high tourist traffic being right off the main square. Passable but not noteworthy.

My friend and I booked at this restaurant on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. The restaurant is tucked away behind an archway off the busy and central square of Piazza del Comune opposite the beautiful Roman Temple of Minerva. We walked in and was placed at a table in a a bit of a thoroughfare. After giving... More

I always visit this charming family-run restaurant when i am in Assisi. The food is simple Umbrian fare served by delightful people in a convivial setting. It's also very well situated near to the main town square.

My husband also had the soup and the ravioli of the day. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The owner chose very nice wine and we even had... More

Very busy restaurant on the day we went for lunch. Service was not necessarily that slow, but it was more that they seemed to not really care whether or not we had chosen their business for our lunch, and conveyed an air of inpateince with us as tourists. Perhaps the several people attednign to us were just busy or having... More

This Hotel/Trattoria is right in the historic centre of Assisi and serves a mixed crowd of pilgrims, tourists, and locals. On two floors with an elevator for disabled guests, it has an interesting menu and its offering is valuable. The Hotel is located at Via San Rufino 6 and is not wheelchair accessible, but is quaint and affordable. Greek-style showers... More

Great restaurant off a side street near Piazza di Commune. Had tagliatelle with truffles, which was outstanding. Also had the veal steak which was ok. Would definitely return if I make it back to Assisi

This is a nice relaxing trattoria off a quiet side pedestrian street near the Piazza di Commune. You can tell that it is a family run restaurant with some family members dining early at nearby tables. The appetizers were the best with fresh local meats and together with the ravioli and a carafe of house wine, it offers a pleasant... More

My wife and read about this restaurant in both the Rough Guide to Tuscany & Umbria and the Slow Food edition of Osterie e Locande d'Italia. We tried to get a table as a walk-in our first night in Assisi, but they were already booked, so we made a reservation for the following night. And it was wonderful, and well... More
