Charm in Assisi

We enjoyed a light lunch--buffalo mozzarella salad with apricots, tomatoes and greens--along with a Moretti beer and a glass of local Grechetto wine. Very friendly service on a quiet narrow street away from the noise of the square.

I was looking for an off the beaten path place for a light dinner. I was already seated when I read some lackluster reviews about this place. So I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. I skipped the 16 euro menu of the day and ordered hen with crispy vegetables. The hen was rather flavorless and it... More

In the 4 weeks travel through Italy, we really haven't come across terrible food, until this restaurant in Assissi. I avoided the Tourist's menu until this restaurant and should have stuck to my first instinct to avoid any restaurant that offers a special menu for the tourists. My husband and I both tried the 16 Euro fixed menu. I asked... More

After 2 weeks of touring in Italy (eating traditional Italian food wherever possible) this was our best meal by far! Truly 'modern Italian' food and well presented. Our family - 2 adults and 2 kids (7 and 9) - ordered individual dishes rather than the 3 course menu special on offer but some we ordered were available on it as... More

The restaurant is located off the main drag with friendly staff. So we gave it a try. The 16Euro fixed menu looked appealing. The pasta dish came out Ok but the secondi was absolutely disastrous. I had the mixed grill - just terrible presentation and quite burnt. My husband had the lamb chop which was also burnt, so was the... More

Came upon this place by chance (went by the golden rule: if there are mostly italians eating in a restaurant, it's usually a good place) and had one of the best meals I've eaten in Italy in some time. My wife and I went with the 3 course daily menu for 16 Euro which consisted of tortonelli with mushroom and... More

Just a beautiful back a ways off the Piazza del Commune, a lovely viccolo, candlelit--then comes dinner. The carpaccio, cool and malleted thin enough to read through, topped with olio and four warms spears of asparagus--it's fabulous. The pastat carbonara is breath-taking. We're going back a week from last night, for my wife's birthday. And we'll be back after that.... More

This restaurant is tucked away on a side alleyway and is well worth looking for. You can either eat inside or outside. The quality of the food was very good and seemed to be authentic. The prices are reasonable and the services is quick. If you would like quality food that is away from the town center served in a... More

This unique restaurant in a side street might be overlooked when walking up from the Cathedral di San Rufino. Seen through an archway the enticing restaurant awaits you and you will be fortunate if Tizziana is there to show you the way. Tables on either side of the narrow lane allow you to keep an eye on the kitchen but... More
