My husband and I dined at this very special restaurant last night. Not only is it amazing in that it's built on Roman ruins with a glass floor, it's lighting, wall art and everything about this venue is very tasteful. This is a restaurant you would book for a special occasion. We decided to do the four course tasting menu... More

Assisi is not like any other town, and nor is this venue.... My good friends, and 35 guests, had their wedding there yesterday, the ceremony downstairs, in a magical room with a glass floor, to display the roman ruins beneath. Drinks & canapés after were delicious.... but the 5 course dinner in the evening was superb, every course was so... More

We ate at Locanda del Cardinale with some trepidation because the reviews had talked more about the glass floor with the roman ruins beneath than the food....so we didn't have such high expectations. So we all know the glass floor is both novel and amazing and yet it grabs your attention. Amazing indeed! But the food: Full marks for our... More

This restaurant would be worthwhile only for the food which is excellent. In addition they are located on top of the Roman house. They discovered the Roman ruins after doing a renovation of the floor and building a new wine cellar. The restaurant walls are medieval and they have glass floor so you can see The Roman house below.

We received a tip from a couple that we just happened to meet while we were in Rome. We are so glad that we listened to their advice. We went on a weekday and we didn't have reservations so we decided to go as early as possible to see if we could get a table. We were quite surprised that... More

We had a lovely dinner in this contemporary dining room set on top of a 1st C. Roman ruin in the cardinals palace. You literally sit on a glass floor affording you views of an ancient ruin. In addition the food is very good contemporary Italian cuisine. We had the tasting menu, pigeon pate, truffle gnocchi, Umbrian Pork and chocolate... More

The restaurant is situated on the ground floor of a former cardinals palace and has been imaginatively and beautifully restored. You enter and walk onto a glass floor that reveals Roman walls and floors whilst above you beautiful modern lighting. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the choice of food was excellent and could not be faulted. The tap... More

We had dinner at La Locanda and really enjoyed the experience. The food is contemporary, well presented and very tasty! The Steak tartar starter with mustard ice cream is one of the best I have ever had. They also have an extensive wine list with wines from all over the world. A great restaurant in an region not known for... More

This is a perfect blend of old and new. The glass floor is one of a kind and very unique. It was like eating in an Etruscan museum. Marco and Marco are very knowledgeable and they made wonderful suggestions. We were especially pleased they offered assistance with their 25 page wine list. If you like wine this is the place...
