A great looking Osteria tucked down a small laneway in Assisi. A large selection of local and Italian wines are on offer and a dinner menu that had something for everyone in our party of 5 adults. They also have a set menu with the choice of 3 starters and 3 mains. The staff was very friendly and the meals... More

We first went for lunch and had a passible salad. Returning for dinner the mood was set by a darkened ally set with church candle lanterns making the outside tables inviting. Our first course was a salad Caprese which comprised unripe tomatoes and dry, unappetising mozzarella. Not good. The main course was a vegetarian lasagne which again was dry and... More

A friendly restaurant close to the centre of the old city. Food very reliable with good ingredients. Wine list quite extensive. Enjoyed the risotto.

We wanted a place with real Italian food outside of the huge crowds of tourists in Assisi. I am glad we found this place. Service was friendly and food was very good. Not he cheapest place, but not bad for what we got. We had a nice bottle of Montefalco wine, mineral water, pork filet in gravy, and strangozzi with... More

We stumbled upon this place. It's not on any main walkways. (Although you walk past it if you follow Rick Stevens Assisi guided walk of the City) the food was amazing. Taste buds exploding with enjoyment. (sorry a little over dramatic but true) hope to come back again.

This is a nice, comfortable restaurant in the heart of Assisi but portions were small and it seemed expensive for what it was.

This restaurant was recommended on the Gluten-free Italian restaurant guide and I wasn't disappointed. The food was excellent and the choice brilliant. Basically, they can make virtually anything on their menu GF and are prepared to do so. As a result we ate their regularly and I had what is probably the best pasta dish I've ever tasted. I think...

We had the 18 euro per person option in this delightful restaurant. Choices for each of the 3 courses meant we could all order something different and taste test each other's dishes! Excellent quality dining.....
