Wandering through Assisi

Great little ristorante. With splendid service and good English. Food is simple but very taste as it should be here in the hart of Italy. Perfect after visiting the upper and lower churches of St. Francis.

While wondering around in Assisi we stopped for quick lunch at Locanda del Podesta. We chose just some pasta even though the menu immediately started to lure us towards three course meal. And after eating we started to hope that we had room for more. Quite impressive!

Having wandered through the lovely streets of Assisi in the mist, we came across this little restaurant just as we were about to give up finding somewhere open for a quick lunch. Although no one was there, we noticed the trip advisor awards on the window so we thought we'd give it a go. What an excellent decision. This was... More

We visit Assisi frequently and eat almost no where else. The proprietors, Romina and Stelvio are most friendly and accommodating and the food and wine are great at prices that always make me owner how they make a profit. The Fettucine with wild boar is better than any boar and pasta dish I have had elsewhere. The gnocchi with Gorgonzole... More

Arrived right when they opened at 7pm. Atmosphere quaint and comfortable. Ordered bruschetta (a variety plate) that was very good. One of them was radicchio with honey in the sauce- very different but tasty. (5 euro) Our 1st plate was a pasta noodle in white cream sauce with black pepper that was very tasty (5 euro). Finally the grilled pork... More

Our accommodation recommended this place and we visited on a very quiet Sunday evening, with only one other table of people in the restaurant we had a doubts. If you like cheese you must order the cheese pasta, it is the very best that I have any had and my whole family thoroughly enjoyed all of the food we had... More

We were a large group (18) celebrating the Feast of St Francis of Assisi. The restaurant put on a wonderful meal for us and we're extremely attentive. Our table was set beautifully and we received a warm welcome. Thanks to the great staff and lovely food a great night was had by all. We were so appreciative that they accommodated... More

Slightly off the beaten track this restaurant is well worth the slight effort to get there. Friendly service, great food and pleasant (indoor only) made our visit well worthwhile. Definitely go back.

It's not easy to find "La Locanda del Podesta" but it's worth it! the restaurant is in town in a small street not far from the main Basilica. We had dinner there and it was fabulous. Try the whole experience: primo, secundo and contorni with umbrian wine and you won't regret it!

My husband and I were looking for a restaurant for lunch and consulted Rick Steves' guidebook. We were searching for a place with a view. Luckily it rained & the restaurant we had chosen closed its terrace. So we went on to our 2nd choice and Locanda del Podesta was amazing. No, it didn't have a terrace and a view,... More
