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

Need I say more? Hidden in a narrow cobblestoned street we chose to dine outside on two separate evenings. The menu is in both Italian and English and there are nightly specials that are suited for a larger appetite. The mixed grill, included wild boar, chicken and beef and each piece was tender with melt in your mouth flavours. Vegetables... 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

We actually found the food to be quite good. A version of carbonara with some truffles and perorino di fossa was interesting and well done , as was a pasta with bottarga. However, despite the restaurant being less than half full, the service was too slow for even a leisurely dinner. It took a good half an hour to get... More

The food was ok, but the service was terrible. Took forever for the waiter to get to us, we didn't get the water we ordered, and we had to argue with the waiter to remove the water from the bill.

We were very pleased by our experience at this Osteria. The waiters were very helpful, attentive and patient. The food was very good, hearty, Umbrian cuisine. We enjoyed the gluten-free spaghetti cacio e pepe, an extremely tender roastbeef with roasted pine nuts and the savoury Umbrian sausages along with some lovely lamb skewers (because we couldn't make up our mind)....
