Love this restaurant in Assisi. The atmosphere, frendliness and warmth - literally an open hearth where they prepare the bruschetta. My waiter was bow-tied "Frederigo" (3rd generation). Antipasti of bruschetta and prosciutto (cut right off the bone) and olio. Then Tagllitella noodles with "bacon" nibbles, tomato, etc. finally a classic dish with rabbit perfectly prepared. Locals were here, animated discussion,... More

They have the loveliest fireplace in the dining area on which they cook the most tasty sausages! The prices are very reasonable and the service was impeccable.

My sister-in-law from Tokyo and I were spending several days in Assisi and found this restaurant in a Rick Steves guidebook. Getting there was a bit of an adventure, walking along twisting, narrow lanes and finally coming upon this tiny little place. We chose to sit outside although there was more room in the inside but it was a lovely... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our tour guide who lives in Assisi. It is quite a climb up the road past the cathedral, but worth it. The restaurant has a large dining room with an arched ceiling - very spacious. There is an open charcoal grill in one corner and grilled meats are a speciality. There are lots of... More

If you're looking for authentic Umbrian cuisine in a small medieval square away from the noise and nonsense of the main tourist drag, then look no farther than Trattoria da Erminio. My wife and I ate here in August 2013 on the advice of a local and we were not disappointed. Let's face it-- most restaurants in main tourist squares... More

Came here on a recommendation from R. Steve's and boy was he right. Situated on top of Assis (no view), the place was a welcome retreat. My feet were soaking wet as we had just made the trek up and back to the castle in loafers with no socks. The dining room overlooked a big open fire the restaurant often... More

A charming restaurant a little off the beaten path. We liked it so much we ate there twice rather than trying a different place. Local Umbrian dishes with mushrooms and truffles were especially good. We enjoyed a nice Montepulciano wine.

This restaurant is a little hidden gem up a hill beyond the Cathedral but it was recommended to us by a local and used by locals which is always a good sign. (And remember it's all down-hill on the way back!) There are a few tables outside if you are early enough to get one and although there is no... More

Nice atmosphere in a two-story brick-vaulted room. Rustic color scheme in ochre and yellow. The chef cooks the meats on a wood-fired grill in a fireplace. We had a very good dinner. First, tagliatelli with porcini, tomatoes, bacon and onion, then baked radicchio with balsamic. Lamb Perugina-style was followed by farro with fresh porcini, tomatoes and yummy broth. The rabbit...
