Our waiter was very congenial and friendly. The antipasto for two was way too much food for us. It could have been our whole meal with a salad. My husband had a homemade pasta with Lima beans and pancetta. It was very good, I had the noodles with mushrooms. The portion was too big, though the taste was good.

Nice restaurant in downtown Assisi just off the main piazza in a quiet alley. Had dinner in a Saturday night, was quite busy but still got a table without prior booking. Food is quite good and includes many typical dishes from the region including lots of truffles. We had a mix of pizza, pasta and some meat on the grill,... More

This is a great restaurant just off of the main path between the Basilica of St. Francis and the Roman Forum/town center. It has beautiful vaulted brick ceilings and the service is fast/quite good. The pizzas are large and authentic, not like those you find in the more touristy snack cafes, etc. Great place to get slightly away from the... More

We stopped for lunch and had an amazing meal; Pasta (home-made, of course) was superb. Wild boar was one of best meals ever. Prices great. Service too. During slow season (we were there mid-March) we were surprised that they didn't serve pizza at lunch. Had to do with getting the wood-fired oven up to speed during slower time. So we... More

We stopped in for an early dinner and we hit the jackpot. The floor has lots of glass to showcase the underlying excavations of mosaic flooring. We weren't exceptionally hungry and ordered only pizza and dessert. Both were perfectly prepared and reflected lots of attention to detail. The chefs here have true passion for authentic Umbrian cuisine. We started with... More

How can a supposedly good restaurant (per TripAdvisor) get Caesar salad not only wrong but bland; and pizza tasteless. I suspect the rating are because it is a lot of food for a low price (in Assisi anyway). My suggestion - try elsewhere.

Excellent place, very good family ambiance and the service at first was kind of slow but we went in early for dinner, then it got much better, pizza is good for youngsters but the menu is for every one, good wine selection and local wines are very good.

Been going to this restaurant each year for the past 3 years. It's a nice, cozy place where we usually have an appetizer and then a pizza. House wine by the 1/4, 1/2 of full liter is very fairly priced. I'm gonna say 2, 3, 6E. Service is ok but can be a bit standoffish and rushed. Prices are very... More
