Description: "Enoteca SanPietro" is located in the old Town of Assisi, close to the homonymous church. The restaurant is a very characteristic e romatic place, especially at dinner time, for its soft lights and the presence of candles on every table. The umbrian traditional cuisine is revisited with imagination and creativity of the chef and cured with seasonal vegetables. "Enoteca San Pietro" also has an excellent choice of the best wines from all over Italy. Air conditioning during the summer and free service. Closed on Tuesday. Free parking in front of the restaurant.

“Pretty typical, nothing to rave about”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Did we hate it? Certainly not. Did we love it? Well... no. It was a meal that we ordered, we ate, and then left and promptly forgot. If you are looking for that Italian meal that will stay with you for years to come, well this just isn't it. It's a good meal. You can leave full and perhaps a bit tipsy from a relatively inexpensive bottle of wine, but you won't be writing to grandma to tell her all about this place.

We got the tagliere maxi for 2 people. It had a nice mix of meat and eggs, but the cheese was lacking and compared to the price for that dish here in Naples, I was disappointed that it didn't include a hot portion, as we normally get for 18 Euro.

Additionally, for those of you solo Inglese-speakers, you may struggle. There is one waiter who sort of spoke English but the main waitress spoke absolutely none. I dabble in restaurant Italian (enough to get food, our bill and find out where the bathrooms are) and we managed to get by. But if you don't speak that much, you may have a very difficult time here. There will likely be a lot of pointing.

Dear girl from Naples,
I'd like to respond to your review, but frankly I can not understand the meaning of his words. English is not my mother tongue but this time either way, (I speak discreetly), nor with the translator I was able to put together a logical discourse.
However, I can tell you I remember you as you come to the end of service almost 15:00 and you have chosen from our menu, without being advised, the Maxi tagliere the table next to you was enjoying happily and also consists of things hot freshly prepared, then you have eaten a plate of umbricelli with fresh ricotta cheese and tomato basil in two. The plates came back empty and even the bottle of Grechetto you drank was over, so I do not understand your opposition.
Unfortunately, however, not to have been able to satisfy and not being able to benefit from this review.
Sincerely, Barbara Tomassini

“Not vegetarian”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

We went here only because this restaurante was categorized as "vegetarian" in Trip Advisor. There's nothing particularly vegetarian about it. You can order the usual Italian dishes without cheese, etc., but no much else. Our server spent most of her time on a computer in the back during our meal, apparently on Facebook. In sum, it's a typical Italian pub-type restaurant.

“Delusion...also for us”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

As commented by others, we trusted tripadvisor and chose one of the (supposedly) top rstaurants in Assisi. Having tried another one much further down in the list, that however we truly enjoyed, we reckoned this would be surely even better.
1st impact is not good. The place appears as a poor level pub. Nevertheless we gave it a shot. Waiters really nice. However the food quality was below average, especially for italian std. Not much choice and steak was hard and overcooked (not medium as requested). Starters however seemed good (ham and salame and other cuts). FOr a wine place we we weee not struck by an overwhelming number of bottles. First course,penne, alright, but nothing to go back to.
Cutting it short: sorry for the Pleasant people workin there but the place was not of our liking and does not deserve to be rated #5 in assisi.

Dear Guys, I remember very well of you, because we see a lot of variety of people but I had never had to serve two people who ate the dish on the table are removing the paper place mat that serves to set the table, but this is a detail. The dishes that you eat from the first that you had the "penne alla norcina", the steak pork chop that is better to eat well cooked and the meat beef that is better eat medium cooked and two side dishes of grilled vegetabless are the dishes that they returned back cleaned . But did you expect a restaurant with a tablecloth and not a designed environment as it can be our place but surely the price you pay is in line with our environment, and certainly well below the restaurant that you would have wanted a location d 'Excellence as prices and cuisine that this type offers of local ! Sorry for not being up to your expectations but if you had read it right the other reviews, and saw at the photos posted and our responses would have avoided the disappointment.

“Delusion...”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

Not knowing the city very well we have trusted Trip Advisor to find a place to eat in our one day trip to Assisi. We have called the first one in the list, but it was full and we have than decided to go to Enoteca Sanpietro. It was really a delusion. The place is very simple and with no charm. The service was not nice, the price was quite expensive for the kind of place and food (that was just ok). It was really nothing special...and our question was: How could this be rated as the second best restaurant of Assissi???!!!

Dear Madam,
Thanks for voicing your opinion and so you said you ate well, we are sorry not to have met your expectations, but we can not benefit from his opinion because we do not understand how simplicity can be a defect!
The interior is simple , we wanted to meet our tastes and those of our valued customers who appreciate the culinary traditions and traditional and informal environments.
The fact that we are at the top of tripadvisor is only because most of our guests appreciate the simplicity and for us it is a strength, not a defect.
Only elegant restaurants and fascinating, as you wrote, deserve to stay in the top positions? Well, this is not the spirit of tripadvisor that collects the subjective impressions of travelers without classifying structures according to the stars.

“Truffles! Truffles! Truffles!”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

We went there based on a recommendation from a nearby store owner and was thrilled to find TRUFFLES on the menu! We had the Truffle appetizer; I had the pennette with sausage and truffle (forget what wife had but it had truffles too) and these dishes were outstanding. On our last day there we stopped in and had lunch and strayed from the truffles and had another outstanding meal. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we will definitely go back there to dine when we return to Assisi. This is one place I can recommend without any reservations, although you should make reservations for dinner because they fill up!
