Description: The restaurant Giovannino's is a famil-run restaurant, situated in the calm of the Umbrian hills 4 kms from Assisi. To reach the restaurant you can take the ss444 street to Ponte Grande. From "Porta Perlici" Assisi's door, you will be in restaurant in 5 minutes by car. Ample free parking lot. To this day our strong point has been the local specialities: handmade tagliatelle, meat which we still grill on the open fire accompanied by Umbria's most famous dish, 'torta al testo', a type of thick,soft,flat bread baked on the hearth. The 'torta al testo' that we make is not the traditional recipe that everyone knows, but is in fact a recipe thought up by Aurora, Giovannino's wife. Another ours popular dish is coratella, (stewed lamb) Our secret to prepare good dishes, is always use fresh ingredient without artificial colourants or preservatives.

“Best food we found in Umbria”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This authentic Umbrian restaurant wowed us with its traditional food and generous wine portions. From appetizers to desserts, everything was terrific and gave us a great introduction to the foods of Umbria. This was our favorite meal of our two week trip in Italy. The small attached store was a helpful find as we were on our way to an agriturismo and needed some supplies.

“Delicious local food”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We ate here twice while staying at Villamena just up the road. Service was good and food delicious. We understood it had been run by the same family for 50 years. Busy at weekends so reservations recommended then but during the week it seemed quieter.

“Full of locals - always a great sign”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner here- our family all loved it! Ravioli with sausage & truffle cream!!! Delicious, house wine and home made bread ... Fantastic value, the staff even spoke English after our poor attempt at Italian... We'll be back!
