Eating on the terrace as the evening falls is an amazing experience--the view is magnificent. The restaurant was very gluten free friendly, with GF pasta on hand, and many entrees naturally GF. The service was very friendly. We particularly recommend the local specialities--the wild boar pasta, the local pecorino cheese plate, etc. Also enjoyed the Sangarotti Sangiovese from a vineyard...

After a lengthy walk around the Basilica late morning we needed lunch and a good one with a view to match. I have to tell you we chose well. This restaurant is an enjoyable walk through the steep back streets which is worthwhile in itself. You feel you've earned your lunch and it was delicious. We were seated on the... More

ate here while on a recent trip to Assisi and were seated in the upper balcony area. The food was lovely, although not outstanding, but the meal was very uncomfortable as we were bombarded by flies gathering around the lights under the overhead low canopy. Badly designed and unpleasant.

On the path to the basilica of St. Francis, we stopped off for lunch at this restaurant. We were given a table on their patio with a magnificent view of the valley below us and an umbrella to shield us from the mid-day heat. The setting is not evident from the street, but once inside, the view opens up. It's... More

dined here right before the sunset for the view. friendly staff, cordial service . the mixed appetizer was very good - but then again melon, prosciutto, cheese, etc dont require 'preparation' and is a product of the foodstuffs rather than the cooking. the rest of the meat - the stews, steaks, pasta - we were less excited about. taste and...

Took the family for a last night blow out and have to admit I was seduced by the thought of a great view from the terrace but the real star is definitely the food. Fabulous parpadelle with wild boar and funghi followed by veal fillet with truffle. Sublime. Go for desserts from the homemade selection and you won't be disappointed.... More

Wonderful experience with the owner/ chef greeting us each evening. The view from the outside setting area is beyond words. Great food, super service and an ambiance that suited all of our company of four perfectly. Magnifico!

After over 10 trips to Assisi and some help from TA, I made it to metastasio! Yes, there are great views, but I was more impressed with the quality of the food. Mostly a local menu, it was delicious. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I reserved for cena and of course the setting sun. Clouds? No worry. It's... More

We were out on an evening walk on our first day in Assisi, in the direction of the basilica. I stopped to read the day's menu, and I saw "lamb". I am crazy about lamb. So, we entered, and we did not have a reservation, but they found us the last table up on the terrace. I ordered the lamb!... More
