My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at Il Roseto, on a half board basis. Half board is something we rarely do, preferring to eat in different local restaurants. However the owner, Massimo, assured us that his wife would cook something different for me every night, no problem. We are so glad we did (only one of us is veggie).
Every night we had four courses of heavenly food, preceded by a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. It was an amazing experience. The restaurant is in the garden, with shelter if the weather is inclement. However we were lucky enough to have warm evenings, with the covers pulled back giving a magnificent view of Assisi, and especially the Basillica lit up in all its glory.
Bottled water, coffee and alcohol are extra's, but the quality of the local wine is superb, mainly from the Montefalco area.
Breakfast was a treat of Massimo's wife's cooking skills, plus croissants, yoghurts, cereals etc.
Massimo is a wonderful host, with sound local knowledge of where to go, what to see and how to get there.
An added bonus is that it is less than a mile from Assisi town and on the local bus route to the top of the town. Buses every 30 minutes and 2 Euros per person each way. Tip - take the bus to the Assisi bus terminus and you can meander down to the Basilica of St Francis, much easier that way. Either bus or walk back to the hotel. You can also easily walk to the small town of St Maria Dei Angeli in about 10 - 15 minutes from the hotel. It is also a great base from which to reach a lot of wonderful towns and villages and is close to Perugia.
Our best tip is to go for the half board option. The pool is another good bonus.
