We had no plans to eat in Assisi and new nothing about its restaurants so used TripAdvisor to help us out and boy did we strike gold - we were coming to the end of our holiday and had eaten in some very good restaurants during our two weeks and this one is most certainly up there if not a... More

Pietro Buonaventura Metastasio was an Italian poet. He was born in 1698 at Assisi and died in 1782. As we were lost in trying to find our hotel in Assisi I glanced sideways whilst driving to see a terrace and what appeared to be lovely views. So, after checking in to our hotel we walked back to find this restaurant... More

I wandered in to this restaurant as the twilight in Assisi was just starting. I saw the deck outside with its breathtaking views, and immediately booked in for dinner. One hour later, I was seated out on the terrace with the panoramic vista before me, and a lovely glass of prosecco in hand. If you go to Assisi, then go... More

We happened on Metastasio by chance and were delighted by the experience. After initial hesitation, because we arrived 5 minutes before lunch closed, the manager welcomed us warmly. Umbrian cheese plate w Umbrian white wine, a zuppetta and plate of ravioli, followed by coffees and all the while a wonderful view of the countryside below. Strongly recommend!

We happened to walk by Ristorante Metastasio on the way to the Basilica di San Francesco and liked the fact that we could see through the other side of the restaurant to a great window view. Imagine our delight when we stopped on our way back to be seated outside on a beautiful, peaceful upper deck (Note: we were lucky... More

We felt as tough we were sitting in paradise looking out over the patio at the panoramic view of Umbria. This was by far the most romantic restaurant of my lifetime and far exceeded my wildest dreams! The food was so fresh and beautifully presented. We started with a procuitto and melon app and hsd a lovely creamy pasta dish... More

We enjoyed a delicious lunch on the terrace, the view is absolutely beautiful. The wild boar was a tasty dish, chicken was good too, and all meals were well presented. A little more expensive than some of the other lunches we had, but worth it for the very memorable setting.

We had dinner here on a saturday evening. Wine was good but food was just average. You'd expect way more from a place like this in Assisi. Disappointing.

We ( my wife and me ) have a dinner here. No chance for us as the terrace was not on option at the time of our visit ( September 2013 ). The food is decent, but not as great as we may expected with a "Certificate of Excellence". There was not enough quantity of meat in my "ragout" and... More

We ate here last year and couldn't wait to return for another delicious lunch on their lovely balcony. Great salad, carpaccio & Proscuitto. Followed by wonderful Pastas. Good food & a glass of wine overlooking the town of Assisi and the beautiful valley below, what could be better?
