Have been here over the last four years whilst staying at villamena. The service is chaotic and slow with a wait for an hour not being unusual which is tough with children. However when the homemade pasta with norcina arrives it is almost worth it. Price is very reasonable.

Great food and service. Really cheap too. Kids played table tennis, darts and fussball. Relaxed and happy place. If you have kids go here for sure.

This authentic Umbrian restaurant wowed us with its traditional food and generous wine portions. From appetizers to desserts, everything was terrific and gave us a great introduction to the foods of Umbria. This was our favorite meal of our two week trip in Italy. The small attached store was a helpful find as we were on our way to an... More

We ate here twice while staying at Villamena just up the road. Service was good and food delicious. We understood it had been run by the same family for 50 years. Busy at weekends so reservations recommended then but during the week it seemed quieter.

We had dinner here- our family all loved it! Ravioli with sausage & truffle cream!!! Delicious, house wine and home made bread ... Fantastic value, the staff even spoke English after our poor attempt at Italian... We'll be back!

After a week in Italy we were starting to think all restaurants had the same menu. Then we found Giovannino outside Assisi. They had a large selection on the menu and everything we had was delicious! The bruschetta, polenta, and pork sausage were all excellent. We wish we had found is place sooner-we definetely would have gone multiple times.

Had fantastic food here last Wednesday evening and the service was great also. So went back again on Thursday !! Best food we found. Not over priced. Quality food. Great homemade pasta. They also have an exceptional wine list and can advise to suit. Probably the best restaurant t in the area.

Description
The restaurant Giovannino's is a famil-run restaurant, situated in the calm of the Umbrian hills 4 kms from Assisi.

Ample free parking lot.

To this day our strong point has been the local specialities: handmade tagliatelle,
meat which we still grill on the open fire
accompanied by Umbria's most famous dish, 'torta al testo', a type of thick,soft,flat bread baked on the hearth. The
'torta al testo' that we make is not the traditional recipe that everyone knows, but is in fact a recipe thought up by Aurora,
Giovannino's wife.
Another very popular dish of ours is coratella, stewed lamb's liver.
Our secret is to prepare good recipes and always use fresh ingredient
avoiding anything which contains artificial colourants or preservatives.
