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... read 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

Dined here last night & we were so looking forward to the meal. Beautiful restaurant, nicely laid out, very modern & those glass floors do play tricks with your sense of balance! We were greeted very warmly & shown to our table. A basket of delicious home baked bread kept us going whilst we perused the menu. After making my... More

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.
