Great find introduced to me by a local guide. A really special lunch to enjoy over time and not be in a hurry. Service was perfect, timed well between courses and we asked the chef for his design of our tasting menu. Wouldn't do it any different in the future and will recommend to the guests renting my house in... More

Unforgettable dining room. Quite spectacular! A female group, we felt very rushed to start with as maitre d asked us to limit our order and then our plates were whisked away before everyone finished. We asked for a sweet wine and were given a "special bottle" charged nearly € 60 but checked online and € 15. This seemed a steep... More

I attended a wedding here in September 2016 and have to say it will stay in my memory as one of the most enchanting evenings of my life! The venue is superb with an intimate chapel, with medieval vaulted ceilings...guests are seated on clear chairs to not impede the lit Roman ruins visible through a glass floor! The reception was...

My husband and I dined at this very special restaurant last night. Not only is it amazing in that it's built on Roman ruins with a glass floor, it's lighting, wall art and everything about this venue is very tasteful. This is a restaurant you would book for a special occasion. We decided to do the four course tasting menu... More

Assisi is not like any other town, and nor is this venue.... My good friends, and 35 guests, had their wedding there yesterday, the ceremony downstairs, in a magical room with a glass floor, to display the roman ruins beneath. Drinks & canapés after were delicious.... but the 5 course dinner in the evening was superb, every course was so... More

We ate at Locanda del Cardinale with some trepidation because the reviews had talked more about the glass floor with the roman ruins beneath than the food....so we didn't have such high expectations. So we all know the glass floor is both novel and amazing and yet it grabs your attention. Amazing indeed! But the food: Full marks for our... More

This restaurant would be worthwhile only for the food which is excellent. In addition they are located on top of the Roman house. They discovered the Roman ruins after doing a renovation of the floor and building a new wine cellar. The restaurant walls are medieval and they have glass floor so you can see The Roman house below. The... More

We received a tip from a couple that we just happened to meet while we were in Rome. We are so glad that we listened to their advice. We went on a weekday and we didn't have reservations so we decided to go as early as possible to see if we could get a table. We were quite surprised that... More

We had a lovely dinner in this contemporary dining room set on top of a 1st C. Roman ruin in the cardinals palace. You literally sit on a glass floor affording you views of an ancient ruin. In addition the food is very good contemporary Italian cuisine. We had the tasting menu, pigeon pate, truffle gnocchi, Umbrian Pork and chocolate... More
