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

We stumbled across this tucked away little place and are very pleased we did. The first thing that struck us was that the menu was just that bit different from what we had encountered recently. So either traditional cuisine in Assisi is quite different from elsewhere in Tuscany, or this Osteria is giving things a bit of a twist. Whatever,... More

What a wonderful meal our tour group shared here in Assisi. This quaint little place off one of the narrow cobblestone streets welcomed our group with a 5 course meal that was excellent. The waiters were a joy and they helped to make our evening more special. Don't miss this place while in Assisi!!

Our group of 13 people has been trying a different restaurant at each meal during our stay of six days in Assisi. After our meal at this restaurant, we all agreed that it was, by far, the best restaurant of all. Service was a bit slow for some of the dishes, but this was because each dish was prepared from...

This is a newly opened restaurant and is clealy determined to be different to the others in Assisi. It achieves this by designing a menu different to all the others (which are very similar), ensuring the quality of the raw materials and final dishes and providing informative, flexible and efficient service. Our only critisism is that they must have English... More
