Lovely food and service

The only reason we're not giving 5 stars is because we took the set menu (one meat, one vegetarian) with the wine option, and we thought the wine was overpriced. So our own fault, really. Better to get a nice bottle. Otherwise, the food was excellent, the service was impeccable, and we had a great... read more

I had two wonderful dinners here. Fine charm, fine menù, not too large place. Intimate, old fashon and excellent cuisine. Desserts are great too. Difficult to recommend one specialty, as several turned to be most satisfactory. A place to remember. Incredible price/value ratio indeed.

Great balance of flavors. Excellent local produce and house wine. Tasty and tender 'tagliata' meet. Fair price. I would certainly eat here again!

A very enjoyable place to discover and enjoy the pleasures of Umbrian cooking. Welcoming and great service. If you've never had it, try the pigeon!

right from the beginning we really felt welcome. and the selection of cold cuts and cheese we started off with just extended that feeling. A great choice that I do recommend. as a main we were suggested a sampler of cannelloni and raviolini. muy yummie, especially with the excellent Sagrantino we had. a reasonable check closed a great evening.

We went with a noisy family group on a busy weekend, and were welcomed simply and warmly by the staff at this small Osteria. The menu we opted for was full of classics and oft forgotten gems such as pigeon (very well cooked), and some of the pastas (tortelli with ewes' milk cheese and honey, or truffle tagliatelle) were truly...

We visited Assisi for a couple of days and stayed at the Hotel La Pallotta. The owner informed us that they had also a family run Trattoria where were could dine, and guests of the hotel had a discount. So we decided to try it out. The food is simply lovely, genuinely home made and the portions are good value... More

Pannacotta was delicious. Veal, potatoes, green salad and lasagne all quality flavours. Friendly staff and classical ambience. Not outstanding but solidly good fare.

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
