After visiting the Basilica in Assisi we took the uphill road rather than the gentler road lined in shops and we found this glorious restaurant that received the trip advisor certificate of excellence for 2013. We totally understand why it earned the certificate after our meal. The day was warm so we were escorted to an upper terrace (they have several with caring amounts of tables) at the rail so that we had a two hour view of the valley below Assisi as we dined. The wait staff hikes up and down several flights of stairs with a smile to bring your choices...ours began with antipasti of melon and prosciutto and bruschetta slathered with Tartuffo , followed by my choice of pasta with porcini, sausage, and truffle in a cream sauce, our son had pappardelle with wild boar sauce and my husband had veal in a balsamic reduction...it was all delicious. Our meal ended with espresso , crosstata and pane cotta with fruits of the Forrest. It was a great stop in the middle of the day surrounded by the gentle sounds of Italian being spoken all around us!

August '14 we had a wonderfull lunch at the Metastasio Ristorante. People were extremely friendly, lunch was delicious and the view extraordinarily. If you are looking for a nice place for lunch in Assisi, just one adress! Andrea, the chef, came to our table to be shure everything was OK! Two Belgian couples.

The service, the food ( Stringozzi al Tartufo is amazing!) is superb. Eat on the terrace upstairs with views of the rolling hills.

Wonderful restaurant family run with Mama reigning the Cucina! Have been there twice (once on the terrace in the sun set and once inside after a thunderstorm) and would highly recommend it.

We arrived at 1pm and without a reservation, we were lucky to get a table at the front of the lower terrace, food was great, service was good. Not far from the Basilica. Tourist Information described it as good food and great views, we were not disappointed ..
