Excellent evening meal in unique surroundings. Very helpful and attentive staff who happily provided an menu translated to English. Would highly recommend during any trip to Assisi. In fact, don't miss it!

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...

A large group of us had aperitivo and then dinner here. The restaurant is in the middle of Assisi and built over ancient mosaic flooring that you can see under the glass floor of the Aperitivo rooms. The restaurant upstairs is stunning and the food is fabulous. We had cheese and peanut risotto, Fillet beef Italian style and home made... More

Fascinating because the restaurant has a glass floor under which is the remains of a Roman Villa discovered after the earthquake in 1997. The food itself was also excellent as was the service.

We had an evening meal here just before new year. The food (typically Umbrian) was very good and the wait staff were really first class. They also serve (very good) wine by the glass. The restaurant itself is also very beautiful with the tables located on a glass floor above old roman ruins. To top it all, it was not... More

We have been traveling in Italy for some time, using TripAdviser to find restaurants. Often, a reviewer will gush that he/she had the best meal of his/her life in a restaurant, but when we go to try that restaurant it doesn't measure up. We never say we had our best meal ever, but rather try to rate restaurants on a... More

Visited for a quiet dinner with my wife. We had the tasting menu which was excellent and matched with a nice Tuscan wine. The setting is beautiful with the glass floors displaying the ancient mozaics. The only odd thing was the selection of wine glasses. The glasses are Reidel which is great but we were served a Bordeaux blend in... More
