Stunning setting, good food

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... read 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

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

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
