It was an average meal with very average if under-average service. I have been to Assisi several times and this was my first time here. The setting is a lovely midieval stone arched room(s) but the food does not match the splendor. The service is not as attentive as it is at many other places and I was here on... More

We spend a quiet lunch during a work day. Place was nice and inspiring about middle age times. We chose a rustic tagliere of traditional hams and cheese pizza with mushrooms and ham and an half liter of good simple red wine of house.

This restaurant is sited not too far from the Piazza del Comune and was a nice surprise as our expectations of good value food in Assisi weren't high. We ate there twice in the end - both times pizzas which were good quality and the overall environment and service were good. The first night we'd been one of the first... More

After 8 trips to Italy, I have learned that once you find a place that you enjoy you should return to indulge yourself again. We had both lunch and dinner here and on both occassions we had well prepared basic italian food that could not be faulted for freshness of flavour. While there was nothing original or creative, it was... More

The service is good and this place has a unique atmosphere. The food is amazing and they do have gluten free options.

We stumbled accross thrice pizzeria in Assisi after failing to find our way to Perugia! The pizzas were straightforward thin and well cooked. We ate in a room that had Evidence of Roman walls and floor (below glass) which made the meal very interesting.

Went there for lunch and the pizzeria was closed. My friend ordered the hamburger and I had the carbonara with asparagus. We shared a supposedly large rocket salad. The place was nice and quiet, away from the crowd. Had a medieval feel to it. When the food came, we realised hamburger came with no buns but had fries on the... More

This pizza place is abit off the beaten path down to the left as you head toward the basilica de san Francesco. When you walk in you are walking down into a completely stone building with a feel that this place has been around for a long time. We found this place by accident on our last trip and searched...

We went on a Saturday night. It wasn't very crowded because most tourists don't stay for dinner. Pizza was amazing. We had the Suprema and the Rustica. Both were absolutely incredible. You should absolutely go. Also, ask to be seated on the glass floor so you can admire the excavations!

I'm a lover of pizza and I still dream the dinner I had in Assisi at Menestrello; it has probably been the best pizza I've had so far. Moreover, the service was fast: it only took about 15 minutes to have four pizzas. It was great! Great, great, great!
