Fine food, excellent staff

The restaurant serves fine dishes and is worth a visit. We went several times, ordered different dishes and all were very good. The wine list offers enough variety of choises. The staff is both friendly and informative on the food. Although a big disappointment has been that once, of the limited... read more

Beautiful place, amazing view of Roman mosaics, good foods. I was there for my wife's birthday party. We were in front of her birthday cake and I didn't realize my head was next to a fragment of a Roman fresco hanging above. That definitely was because the table with the cake was too close to the wall. Instead moving the... More

We dined at La Locanda del Cardinale in August 2015. It is in a slightly hidden location but the interior is quite breathtaking - glass floors over Roman mosaics - stunning contemporary design. The meal was exceptional - the tasting menu was wonderfully created by Enea the chef, who is delightful and very accommodating. He very generously adjusted the menu... More

Recently we had dinner at La Locanda del Cardinale. We were traveling with a tour group and this was a restaurant chosen for us. The restaurant is breathtaking---absolutely beautiful. You walk on glass floors over Roman ruins and the entire setting is spectacular. However, the food does not match the decor. Some of the many courses we had were excellent;... More

We went during December 2014, and itwas very quiet, there were two othe couples when we arrived who finished their meals soon after, so for most of the time it was only us. The food was not the typical Italian home cooking, which we enjoyed, as we were looking for something a bit more epicurean. I would recomend this restaurant... More

It is a Roman restaurant in the historical city of Assisi. Cuisine was delicious and creative.The wine cellar has a big collection. An historical restaurant with original frescoes. It is built over a Roman settlement, which one can see with the glass underneath whilst having a meal. The decor has been tastefully done.

A day trip to Assisi is always in order and if you do, have lunch here. The contrast of the old building and the modern décor - glass floors and huge crystal chandeliers offer a unique setting for top notch food. My wife and I had local appetizers followed by a risotto made with charcoal which sounds chancy but was... More

Love the space! Beautiful building! Candle lit table tops. All of the food was some of the best we've had awhile. I can't wait to spend many more memorable evenings here. Cheers!

While the food and decor were fantastic, the real draw here is the ancient mosaics just under your table and chairs. The beautiful lighting and glass floors almost completely distract you from the impressive dining experience. This is definitely a special occasion venue but when traveling in Italy and in Assisi, do yourself a favor and enjoy a beautiful dining... More

Where else can you dine while admiring the old Roman mosaic floor two yards below the glass floor your chair is resting on? We arrived early (for Italy), and were the only diners for awhile. Our service was great, perhaps partly because our waiter had spent some time in the Netherlands, and was eager to practice his Dutch on me.... More
