I had dropped by this bar/restaurant a couple times to pick up small snacks and water over the last 2 days. I finally decided to stop in with a friend for dinner to watch the sun set behind the Basilica. The view is excellent, the service was very good (our waitress spoke English) and both my friend and I had... More

This restaurant has a lovely warm atmosphere with a fantastic view of the Basilica. You can see the bells ringing as you eat your food. The service was excellent and very friendly too. Excellent wines served and food was really delicious. Thoroughly recommend their potato dumplings served with pasta and superb cheese sauce. My hubby had casseroled rabbit (I am... More

After visiting the Basilica of St Francis, my husband and I had a delicious lunch at this restaurant. Inside it is very tight between tables, but the atmosphere is friendly. We both ordered tuna stuffed tomatoes and have never seen such a clever interpretation of that! There was a huge amount of tuna, both in and out of the tomatoes.... More

We ended up at the Basilica Papale San Francesco D'Assisi at dusk after a day of touring Umbria. The church was closed but the views of the exterior were spectacular at sunset. We noted that the San Francisco restaurant was still open so we decided to have a meal. The décor was attractive with large windows with view of cathedral... More

We went to this restaurant after visiting the Basilica de San Francisco de Asis because of its proximity to the building, extremely nice views, good prices, and variety of dishes served. The food turned out to be delicious! The meat was soft and well cooked, and the pasta was "al dente" and was topoed with well made sauce. Sadly, we... More

We had a perfectly good coffee, and a couple of gelati. It was fine, hardly great value, but since it's in the most touristy spot in Assisi, what do you expect. Having said that, the service was pretty good, and the gelati were tasty. Hardly worth making a detour, but if you are desperate for a coffee after a harrowing... More

We picked this restaurant with the hope of catching the sunset. We were not disappointed...great views good food. The negative of the night was the owner of the restaurant deciding that mid service was the right time to fix a broken sign - drilling into stone wall....not what helped the ambiance or our evening. Would have been a good 4... More

The view we had from the restaurant was fabulous. The food was pretty special too. We had a nice breeze blowing to add to the setting. I had my usual lasagna while in Italy. I couldn't get enough of that great food.

Had a really great meal here on our last night in Assissi. We went late in the evening so we could see the sunset, and ended up with a table near the window. Definitely more expensive than some other options in the city, but the food was definitely high quality and the service was good. Was a little worried about... More

We had lunch at San Francesco and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was really delicious, and the desserts were wonderful. We were seated with a view of the cathedral and it was great both for the view and for people watching.
