Pizza in authentic ancient setting

It's amazing to sit amidst restored Roman ruins (floors and walls) from the 1st century BC and eat pizza. So perfect a setting in the old walled city of Assisi. The wood-fired pizza is very good, service is a little spotty, but the setting is fabulous.

Great looking and great tomato sauce, mozzarella and components but raw pizza dough. Even though the restaurant seemed to be owned by a Neapolitan family, this pizza didn't represent a proper Neapolitan pizza. I think the problem was just the dough itself not the fact that it was slightly undercook. Didn't digest it easily.

Best pizza in all of Umbria! Having traveled to several small city/towns throughout Umbria, I have to say that this was the BEST pizza I have ever found. Not only did it arrive less than 10 minutes after our ordering lunch, it came to the table bubbling hot with crispest crust I've ever seen and the cheese... OH, the cheese... More

We are Italians, and had a very nice dinner. We all had pizza, they arrived reasonably quick, were very good and the service was very polite. We will definitely come here again next time we are in Assisi

Amazing service with air conditioning! I live in Italy and the pizza here was good but not great. What really set this place apart for me was the quick servers along with the overall friendly staff to include Nonna at the register.

We ate here with a large group. Service was quick and food was memorable. We ordered the mozzarella and tomato salad as an appetizer. Delicious! We shared a salad, which was large, and Parmesan (eggplant). The Parmesan was out-of-this world. I would highly recommend eating here while you are in Assisi.

Not many pizzas are truly memorable but the two wood fired specimens we ate there last week were special - crusty exterior, light base and loaded - but not too loaded - with toppings. The service was a fast but a little curt - serving tetchy tourists all day everyday cannot be easy.
