How does a plate of three small omelettes sound for lunch? Well, they tasted great. As did all the other choices we made at Ristorante degli Orti. We had arrived in Assisi after a fairly long and hot train ride that had delays. We were certainly ready to eat! Just up a little side street not far from Piazza Santa Chiara we found Ristorante degli Orti. There were already several families in this place (possibly locals, always a good sign), and the menu looked appealing. One of our party had the vegetable soup and proclaimed it to be truly homemade-tasting – just like Nonna use to make. The other two of us had tagliatelle with wild boar ragu. It was a thrill to be in Assisi having such a regional Umbrian dish. We also shared a plate of tasty traditional Umbrian sausages: first grilled, then split down the middle and grilled open or browned on a fry pan for the last step. The seasoning was very intriguing. We also had their Degli Orti salad of spinach, mushrooms, caciotta cheese and fresh walnuts with a light olive oil dressing. We were completely satisfied with the quality of the food, the friendly service, and the value offered at this family-run restaurant.
