Our hotel recommended Ristorante Buca di San Francesco. We were seated in the lovely patio. Our pastas and Italian rosé were delicious.

“Exelente Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

The restaurant Buca di San Francesco was the chosen restaurant for Christmas lunch, during my stay in Assisi. Beautiful choice made by intuition.
Excellent top quality in the art of cooking the food with a taste unusual. Also with a very nice presentation. Good wine list.

When you decide to go to Buca di San Francesco, ask for help to Mr. Giovanni Betti, the owner. Special person that will give you all the expert ideas and opinion about the menu, tastes and choices.

I strongly advice a visit to Buca to complete a fantastic stay in Assisi!

“Good Food, Great View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

Beautiful view of the open square and one of the grand churches. We had a great panini and a good house wine.The staff did not speak much English but that did not matter. Prices were good and there was a more extensive menu for those that wanted a full meal.

“Great service and amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

I just had an amazing meal. My wife fell ill and I had to go and find somewhere to eat alone. I ended up i this restaurant and couldn't have been happier. Greeted at the door by a friendly waiter, seated and served.
The waiter understood english and I asked him (as I always do) to recommend something.
The meal was 5 kinds of bruschetta to start, followed by a wonderful pasta with a very nice variety of meats on it and finish a nice plate of cheese. Of course this was all alongside a nice house red wine.
Wine, water, and 3 courses for €30. Not too bad if you ask me.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Expensive feel at and inexpensive price.

“Waiters with an attitude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2011

Good food and wine. Great location, beautiful antiques. The waiters were dismissive and had an attitude. We speak Italian but that did not help us at all because the waiters seemed disinterested.
