“Absolutely delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

If you go to Assisi you must eat here! It sits atop a hill and you can dine outside with a spectacular view. The food is absolutely delicious - fine quality and very well prepared with complex, subtle flavors. Definitely well worth the price.

“A victim of its success”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Yes the views are wonderful and yes the food is very good. It is, however, packed out with foreign tourists. Nevertheless it is still definitely worth seeking out - just be prepared for lots of tourists.

“Who named this excellent restaurant?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

OK, so you own a restaurant on a street whose name coincides with the English word for the spreading of cancer. Can that word mean something wholly different in Italian? Do you not count on English speaking guests? Haven't you heard why the Chevy Nova bombed in Spanish speaking countries? Choose another name for your restaurant!!

But once you get past the infelicity of the name and especially if you can be seated at the outdoor terrace, you get fine food and the most spectacular view of the countryside. We were a group of 16 at two long tables and had a wonderful time.

“Best scamorza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We were walking through this incredible town, when we got hungry and every restaurant had pictures of what we could eat and special deal for 18 euros for full menu..... and being italian, that sounded very touristy, so I went on TripAdvisor and checked for a restaurant a little bit out of the main squares and we found Metastasio. A great surprise! The view is fantastic, the lady that served us was very nice and kind and the owner was there for any need. We had the Coccetto di Scamorza that after 48 hours we can still taste for how incredibly prepared was.
Service, food, location I'm very happy to give a 5 star to this place.
Sorry for my english but I'm happy to suggest this place to people that want to experience the good italian cuisine.

“Beautiful terrace seating with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We had lunch as a family there. When our son is quiet and eats, it means we have a winner. We had the strongozzi with tomatoes, named after the restaurant. The noodles were thick and chewy, so son was quiet. I had the chicken cacciatore, which came with a sauce of roasted bell peppers. It was very good, the rest of the family confirmed as well. We can highly recommend to take as contorni the grilled vegetables of the season. The zucchini and eggplant were not only drizzled with excellent olive oil, not the stale plonk you get sometimes, they were also very sweet. If the mains are good, rule is to go for desert.
The tiramisu was equally good, so was the panna cotta.
And the seating - they have a terrace which overlooks the whole valley. Another point strongly in their favor.
