We were looking for a good pizza and fried zucchini flowers and we have found this place really amazing. The food quality was excellent but the service was quite slow (unfortunately). Nevertheless it is a place to go.

Our favourite restaurant was closed one night while we were staying in Assisi. So we asked a local (our B&B host) where we can get something light for dinner. He said like pizza, we said like yes. He said Il Menestrello. As we went in our first thought was maybe this is too much restaurant for what we wanted but... More

Pleasant enough meal, in a lovely atmosphere with nice staff. However my starter, which came with a caper sauce was so salty it was inedible, and I love salt!!! I returned it and eventually a replacement came out with the sauce in a separate bowl. I was told it was meant to be salty as it was capers. Sorry but... More

We were looking for pizza and noticed Il Menestrello down a side street as we were walking down the main hill in Assisi. The service was excellent -- very attentive -- and the food was very tasty. The interior was also very interesting - a very old stone building - all in all a very good choice for dinner.

Loved this place. Wonderful ambience, like being in a cavern/cave. Impeccable service and such a huge variety of pizza - and any of them could be made gluten free. And they were so big, it was difficult to eat it in one sitting - we had to take some home in a takeaway box. We were so impressed we invited... More

This centrally located gem is one not to miss. Just a short walk from the main piazza. It's situated in an ancient building and retains the period charm with modern conveniences. Service is efficient and helpful. The food is stunning. Using local truffles and truffle oil on some dishes. The insalata tartufata has both oil and grated truffle. It is... More

This restaurant is down a little side street just past the east end of Plaza Commune so it may be a little hard ti find. Just past Hotel Umbra. Il Menestrello has three dining rooms of varying formality, the main dining room is white tableclothes level. Our salads and pizza were good. Reasonable prices.

A good lunch, reasonably priced and a clean and friendly restaurant in a cellar just off the main drag. The food may not be paricularly memorable, but neither will you go too far wrong here.

For a restaurant so close to the main thoroughfare it was well priced. Substantially sized pizzas. Which for young children you may want to consider one between two. Staff only know a little English but nonetheless do their very best to help. Would def re-visit should I return to Assisi
