“A wonderful lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

On Friday 17th May my friends and I were looking for some where to have lunch and we came across the Taverna dei Consoli. We were delighted with everything, very welcoming, friendly and a wonderful menu - the food was superb and we had a great time. Alas the weather was not good enough to sit outside, but we did have coffee on the balcony as we watched the Mille Miglia 1000 go through the square - a fabulous selection of vintage and not so vintage cars - the balcony was the best place to watch!! So a superb lunch and a wonderful spectacle, also very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this restaurant, but suggest you book in advance - we were lucky to get a table for six.

“Great place on a rainy day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We spent the day in Assisi viewing the sights but it was raining quite hard. We checked Trip Advisor for a good place to eat and found Taverna dei Consoli well rated. We were very happy with the farro and bean soup, the local pasta with mushrooms and the house sausages. And of course a bottle of wine. No views today but the food is well prepared and thoughtfully served.

“Great View, Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We were lucky to get a table on the balcony. The service was great and the food just a good. Be sure to make reservations if you want to sit outside. The view over the sqaure was a nice additon to the fine food. What a way to relax after a busy day. I highly recommend.

“Best restaurant experience in Assisi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We ate at three restaurants recommended by the hotel staff during our stay, this one was the best. Outstanding, friendly service, a wonderful view from the balcony (comfortable outside eating in late September) and the food was outstanding. I had the pecorino salad and a creamy pasta dish that was out of this world...

“Disapointing Lunch”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

At first glance this place looks amazing with a terrace over the square. However after a quick trip up the stairs and two miserable bald waiters later we were seated and found that initial looks can be deceptive as the view from the terrace is of; well nothing! The chairs are the wrong height, you can’t sit under the tables (cheap options), the waiters really don’t know what service is and the food was small, poor and left us feeling like we should have gone to the first place just below! This was made worse by the religious tourists (Americans) who never seem to shut up but to be fair that was not the restaurants fault. Tip - avoid avoid avoid as not good value.
