Great pizza!

We had a great dinner at Il Menestrello. We had melon and raw ham for starters, great pizza for mains (Pizza Funghi and Pizza Quatro Fromaggi) and delicious Millefoglie and Tiramisu for dessert. Topped of with espresso. And of course we had water and wine with this great pizza dinner.

Came here after lunch was closed but the owners took pity on weary travelers and opened the kitchen for us. How nice! Serving traditional wood-fired pizzas, thin crust, fairly large and also gluten-free pizza which was a blessing for my partner. Prawns are now my new favorite topping.

There is no outdoor seating at this restaurant, but the interior is a wonderful antique space with stone arches and barrel vaulted ceilings. Service was efficient and professional. We enjoyed our time here, but the food just lacked personality. We split a Roman style 'Boscaiola' pizza that lacked flavor where no element really stood out. The salads were large but... More

Medieval ambience with mediocre food. Went for lunch and veal was very fatty and not well prepared or presented, a slightly sweet gravy trying to help its taste. Roasted potatoes were more like large roasted fries, poorly seasoned and been sitting too long prior to serving. Pork chop adequate with a green salad consisting of only one ingredient - washed...

The place is nice: medieval walls and arches. The service is good and prepared. The pizza is huge, but too wet for my taste. The taste was good, truffles are great here, just too much tomato sauce. Wine was great too. Price affordable

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
