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.

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

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.

Recommended by our hotel & it was a great choice. We has the prosciutto antipasto, excellent quality. I also had a lovely soap to go with my braised pork chops. All perfectly cooked. 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
