“Wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2011

Very classy service and wonderful dishes, some not found in your run-of-the-mill tourist trap let alone tourist destination. For instance, the wild boar stew was Devine. Prices are fair and below average for a city based mostly on tourism. I would heartily recommend for a memorable meal!!

“Great service, food and and atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2011

Highly recommend the fresh food. Only barrier to a perfect evening was the language barrier which prevented complete engagement with the very polite, skilled and patient staff!
They threw in a free limoncello for the 2 of us!
Don't be put off by the unmanned entrance, just keep walking through to be welcomed in the main room!

“Nice place, nice food in Assisi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2011

We recently visited La Fortezza to end an evening trip to Assisi. The town is a lovely place to visit, but we chose to go there after 5pm - most of the tourists had gone by then, and the town was quiet and a wonderful place to watch the sunset.
We chose La Fortezza as it was recommended in one of our guide books. There is a lot to choose from in Assisi, but eating here is not cheap compared to surrounding towns.
The restaurant was quiet most of the evening, so service was very good. When choosing a wine, we asked for guidance on a good local wine and were recommended a really nice wine for only €12, one of the cheapest - it was nice to feel you weren't being ripped off !
In our group of 8 people, we all chose a primi pasta dish and secondi meat dish. The primi dishes were all excellent, a good start. The secondi dishes were also very good on the whole, but some had the lamb dishes which were quite fatty and not up to the standard of the other dishes - on the whole, the main courses were good but not outstanding.
With 2 courses and drinks we paid around €30 a head. There was nothing wrong with our meals, but on the other hand nothing outstanding - just reasonable food with good service. We just felt the price was a little high, yet looking around this would seem to be about the norm for Assisi. You can eat here and expect well cooked food.

“Great place to relax in a quiet atmosphere with fine food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2011

Our group of eight made its way through the La Fortezza hotel to what was initially a private dining room because of our early arrival for lunch. We tried probably 20 different items on the menu, considering the three courses and tiramisu for dessert. And the local wines were a special treat, since we had just visited a winery in Montefalco the day before and were familiar with some of the Italian choices. A couple of us had the fixed price meal, and the rest ordered what seemed like half the menu. The service was excellent--attentive but not intrusive, and the food was excellent. We recommend a stop in this out of the way establishment for some fine dining during your trip.
