This restaurant was recommended to us without any description, so we were really awestruck by its interiors when we arrived. The floors are glass in order to showcase the excavated Roman ruins underneath, including an incredible Roman mosaic. The antiquity is highlighted by the contemporary furniture and furnishings--quite the lovely contrast. Given this, we were equally surprised by the quality... More

This restaurant is situated over Roman ruins, with glass floors so you can see them while you eat. The setting and decor are beautiful, all stone and neutral colors. The menu a outstanding, with both traditional and creative selection s. While it is pricier than most other restaurants, you are getting good value for your money. Three course meal is... More

This restaurant is a true gem, especially for those that love a historic ambiance or a creative high class menu. When this restaurant was remodeled they discovered ancient Roman ruins and these were excavated bringing to light beautiful mosaic floors and wall of a Nobile home from 70 AD. The restaurant is located on a glass floor just above the... More

Food, staff and restaurant were all fabulous. This was the best Cacio e Pepe that I had on vacation.

As usual the ambience is great so we took two friends who have never been and the interior didn't fail to impress. We were suggested the fish specials for that day which turned out well however I felt we didn't do their creative skills the normal run for their money. All in all a lovely simple lunch but a little... More

The restaurant was a most gratifying surprise in Assisi! The receptionist at our hotel made the reservation (because of a local party, the city was crowded), and informed us about the Roman mosaics. I went without thinking much about it. There, the dining room left me speechless! The staff was attentive and extremely kind and keep answering my questions about... More

I travel quite a lot and eat business dinners in many restaurants, so it takes a lot to get me excited about the experience. This restaurant is one of the very few that in my opinion, ranks as great. First of all the place itself in the centre of Assisi. The way that they have combined the excavated Roman villa... More

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...
