We were attracted by the mid-day view while walking to the Bascilica and returned in the evening. A great find with wonderful views of the community below the walled city. Good food and a pleasure to meet the head chef when we were the last party to leave.

Our family of 4 stumbled upon this restaurant and were lucky to get a table since we had no reservation. The staff was genuinely warm, helpful and encouraging our hopeless attempts at Italian. The terrace (near sunset) is truly a magically place and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, the view and the welcoming staff. We enjoyed ourselves so... More

After visiting the Basilica in Assisi we took the uphill road rather than the gentler road lined in shops and we found this glorious restaurant that received the trip advisor certificate of excellence for 2013. We totally understand why it earned the certificate after our meal. The day was warm so we were escorted to an upper terrace (they have... More

August '14 we had a wonderfull lunch at the Metastasio Ristorante. People were extremely friendly, lunch was delicious and the view extraordinarily. If you are looking for a nice place for lunch in Assisi, just one adress! Andrea, the chef, came to our table to be shure everything was OK! Two Belgian couples.

The service, the food ( Stringozzi al Tartufo is amazing!) is superb. Eat on the terrace upstairs with views of the rolling hills.

Wonderful restaurant family run with Mama reigning the Cucina! Have been there twice (once on the terrace in the sun set and once inside after a thunderstorm) and would highly recommend it.

We arrived at 1pm and without a reservation, we were lucky to get a table at the front of the lower terrace, food was great, service was good. Not far from the Basilica. Tourist Information described it as good food and great views, we were not disappointed ..

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
