One of my all time favorites......gourmet food in delightful setting. Make reservations so you don't miss this dining experience. Catia, owner/chef, does a wonderful job; she keeps traditional items on the menu, but isn't afraid to create new taste delights. Alfredo greets you and keeps the dining room running smoothly; he's helpful/respectful and believes good food & wine are to... More

We had a dinner in this restaurant following suggestion of our hotel (with 10% discount). Location was inspiring good medioeval feeling with its nice entrance. However inside lights were too strong and athmosphere wasn't really medioeval. It seemed more a 70's Italian restaurant. We ordered 2 starters and 2 first dishes "a la carte". Dishes were served with good coreographic... More

I was anticipating a wonderful meal in this highly rated restaurant. My antipasti of eggplant with mozzarella and red sauce was lukewarm and not that tasty. Elsewhere it had been so good! The cannelloni stuffed with meat and chicken in a cream sauce was very good but my secondo course of grilled pork was tasteless and very close to too... More

Great food, great service, great location just off the main square of Assisi. Never past up a pasta and truffle first course in Umbria. Share it and hold room for the main course. You will not be disappointed. The meats of italian hill towns can't be beat. Highly recommended.

My daughter lives in Italy part time and loves this restaurant. I've returned on many occasions and find it to be a lovely experience. Catia, the owner, chef, is just delightful. Her creations in the kitchen are yummy! The interior of restaurant includes ancient Roman ruins, to be viewed thru window in floor....plus the lovely Roman arches of the ceiling.... More

A Michelin star restaurant at a Trattoria price. This is THE restaurant to try in this town of many excellent restaurants. Unbelievable good food from the truffle pasta to the pigeon in anchovy sauce - just brilliant. Even the desserts were amazing. So worth the $$. Would rate it higher than excellent if I could.

We have been in Assisi a few times over the past years but this was our first visit to La Fortezza Ristorante and we were not dissappointed. The restaurant overall presents very well, an excellent menu and our meals were first rate. One little issue was with the service, not too much of it. The older attendant was pretty much... More

I followed my now wife to Assisi 6 years ago from California to beg her to marry me and while we were eating at La Fortezza, she finally agreed to marry me. Ever since then we have returned to Assisi each year (usually twice a year) and each time we have eaten at La Fortezza sometimes at lunch and sometimes... More

This will be a big year for Assisi but La Fortezza will cope. Set just off the main street, all that this restaurant lacks is a panoramic view - everything else is superb. Visiting at lunchtime we were warmly welcomed and treated with consideration. The food was just excellent, distinctive with good variety and very reasonably priced. A good wine... More

My son and I took a day trip from Perugia to Assisi (on Easter Saturday so it was packed!) without lunch reservations; we tried two different places recommended on trip advisor and both were full but the staff at Pallotta recommended Fortezza; we easily got a table and we seemed to be the only non-Italians there; we got the 31...
