“Best gnocchi ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Their gnocchi with gorgonzola and truffle shavings is heavenly! Friendly service and nice ambience as well. Ricotta with nutella dessert was delightful. A very nice meal and evening had by all, young and older!

“Excellent, perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

The food and wine were outstanding, but the service was equally as good. It was the perfect 2.5 hour lunch with friends after walking the beautiful town of Assisi. We could not have been more impressed with the whole afternoon.

“Best meal during our 2 week trip to Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had many memorable meals in Italy, but the show stopper was our dinner at the Locanda del Podesta in Assisi! We had read about the restaurant in one of our guide books and were shocked to find that our family of 4 were the only diners that evening. Our meal was a culinary treat from our appetizers to dessert. The chef offered to add blood orange to our arugula salad as he had some in the kitchen. It was divine as were the truffle ravioli. We would all recommend this as a top-notch treat for anyone who loves to eat!

“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

My fiance and i thought that the gnocchi gorgonzola was the best either of us had eaten! It was so fresh and fluffy, and the sauce was amazing!

We also managed some lovely lamb cutlets & beautiful house wine- a great great meal and very reasonably priced.

“Simple, but tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

The menu is very limited and the place pretty simple, but the food is tasty and cheap and they have a good wine list. I liked the chef's gnocchi and the fried chicken.
