“Perfect ending to Italy vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Our last day on our trip we wanted to splurge a little for our last meal. After twelve days in Italy it is very difficult to say which meal is better than the meal before, but Metastasio was the best! The owner came to our table with suggestions and every dish was perfect. Although too cold to sit outside , he brought me to the terrace to show me the views for outdoor dining and they are spectacular. I would highly recommend this restaurant and hope to return in the future

“It's the terrace, Stupid!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Eating good food on the terrace of this restaurant in Assisi is what it is all about. You get away from the crowds and busyness and enjoy the view over the valley. Here is the place to recover when you have done the tourist bit.

“Great food, great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

So glad we chose this restaurant. The servers were friendly and welcoming - ours was fun and enjoyed explaining the dishes. The food was excellent - among the best we had in Italy. Finally I found a great gnocchi. The view from the patio was fantastic. Would highly recommend for the service and the quality of food. It is not too far off the main street in Assisi - worth the short side trip.

“Fabulous, fabulous! And the best night view of Assisi from the terrace!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

It's so worth finding your way to this restaurant. It's an easy stroll up into the higher neighborhood of Assisi, rather than at the base of the town! You will be rewarded with a beautiful view to enjoy along with the food. In early October, the weather was still mild enough for us to eat on the outdoor terrace that night. Looking down at the lights of Assisi town and the outside valley was outstanding enough, and then the food arrived. Every dish served was delicious. At our table (we dined there with friends), there was a mix of dishes (pastas, meat, etc.) and everything was delicious. And when it came to desserts, one of our friends had an allergy, and the kitchen whipped up a special iced lemon sorbet dessert so she could have something along with us.

The staff also deserves special mention for their friendliness. Sometimes you can find good food, but served in an unremarkable or unfriendly fashion. Not the case here. Even tho our server spoke no English and I merely pidgin Italian, our server was so friendly that we broke thru the language barrier.

The restaurant is owned and run by mostly family and between the ambiance, the food and the view, they make it a place you wish to return to.

“A great place with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

this has to be one of the best restaurant views ever! we arrived early evening with friends, and although we had not booked we were offered a table outside with a view! watching the sun set over the Umbrian valley, whilst sampling some fantastic food and great, attentive, service, was one of the highlights of our trip to tuscany. we were four and we all tried different dishes, and every one was fantastic.if anywhere near again we would definetly be back.
