My wife and I went here for dinner on a Saturday evening during a trip to Umbria. We had eaten at various places during our stay, mostly agriturismos, but felt like one "up market" dinner before we returend to England. The setting is terrific - glass floors with Roman remains beneath and bright, airy decor. We were the only people... More

The food, the wine and service were terrific! The venue is just beautiful! The chef came out and greeted every table after we had our dinner. Highly recommend this place.

Cheap this place is not, however in terms of venue,atmosphere,wine list and food quality it is of international standard. Service is excellent with friendly and knowledgable staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our night and would return again. We will make sure the credit card has plenty of funds available.

The dining room is stunning, perched on a glass floor above ancient Roman mosaic floors. Service is warm, friendly, and helpful. The food was outstanding. The 40 Euro fixed price menu is an outstanding value. It deserves a Michelin star and would likely have one if it was in France.

Excellent location and an amazing interior. It is a perfect balance between old and modern look and feel. Eating on a transparent glass floor overlooking romans archeological findings is not an everyday experience. The food is excellent, it is an innovative regional cuisine. Wine list is superb. Definitely the best in Assisi and one of the best in the region.... More

We only had an hour to spare on our way to a recital but what a treat. Took us a while to find, but really worth it. I recommend everything about this restaurant, the food above all was fantastic.

The interior of this restaurant is simply stunning. Reminiscent of an ancient cellar it has areas of glass flooring revealing Roman ruins beneath complete with original mosaic tiling. The setting for Christmas lunch was magnificent; fine glassware and the best quality napery. The six course fixed menu was very enticing and consisted of rabbit terrine, eggplant parmigiana, tortolini in broth,... More
