Chance upon this restaurant while strolling around. The waiters were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was surprisingly good! Very good value and authentic. Must try...the veal fillet with truffle, porcini and thyme.

Off the beaten track and well worth finding. The restaurant was an unexpected joy and there were very few tourists around. A plus for us. Our waitress was so friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and the caraffe of wine great value. Only negative mark really was that the elderly owner just about chased us out (he may have wanted to go home) and I would suggest that you tip your waitress directly, as he quickly put our extra money away without mentioning it to her. The younger owner (and I think son) was friendlier.

We found La Rocca by chance and were very glad we did. We dined upstairs on the terrace and were very impressed with the very attentive staff and lively atmosphere of this little gem. We had the tourist menu and were not disappointed. Choice of homemade tagliatelle with ragu or sugo, veal, chicken or pork with potato side and salad and a gorgeous fruit platter to finish - yum! Definitely will return.

We went here based on TA reviews, and we were not disappointed!

We had antipasto of salamis and cheese followed by bicoli (a short pasta) with radicchio, nuts, and gorgonzola. Secondi were involtini stuffed with minced beef, sausage, cheese and marjoram AND a tagliata of veal with balsamic, tomatoes, rucola and parmesan. Bith these meat dishes were very nicely done and flavorful. A nice farro salad with arugula, toms and parmesan followed.

All that for 48 euros. Well worth it.

Loved the Umbrian menu. Not your typical tourist offerings. Very lively atmosphere- not raucous, just merry - with a mix of couples, families, pilgrim parties staying in the hotel, and single travellers. Attentive and quick service. Prices extremely reasonable. I'd have come here again on the second night of my stay, but a lot of the Assisi streets were closed off by a folkloric festival. Otherwise a lovely stroll back to my hotel at the other end of town.
