What generally makes a good restaurant is the ability to manage situations of over attendance. We have been here the day of Easter (evening).
They put us seating in a table for two, but we were in four. I managed anyway.
We ordered two risotto, they told us to have 25 minutes of preparation. They took one hour, and it was not good as expected. Indeed, if you prepare a risotto with red wine and truffle the wine shall evaporate in full otherwise you do not taste the truffle, as it was.
The wine they advised was bad.
The hamburger even not good since mixed with cheese. Even the fettuccine with lamb ragout had a taste too strong.
To be honest we have been travelling 5 days in Italy and this was the first time to have a wrong, unexpected dinner.
Better to find another solution.

Horrible attitude when asking if there was opportunity to dine that evening - being fluent in Italian I was offended by the derisive comment - a simple "Sorry sir we are full" is customary and polite. Plenty of other friendly places to spend you money.

The atmosphere was relaxing. The servers were attentive. The food was delicious! We appreciated the gluten free options and care that was taken around the issue. Could see how this place could become a favorite in Assisi!

We had lunch here with a tour group, so our menu was pre-planned for us. The wait staff was attentive and quick (at least, by Italian standards), and the meal courses were all excellent.
The restaurant is in a great spot, with its entry just a few steps up from the main plaza. Better still, it has a covered outside seating area on a balcony that overlooks the square - for great people watching!

We walked through the walled town looking for something other than the usual cafes and were lucky to come across Taverna Dei Consoli.
From the moment we walked into the door the owner greeted us with a warm smile and gave us a choice of where to sit.
The view over the main piazza was one of the best in the town.
The service throughout the evening was faultless, including him explaining and showing choices from the menu.
Nothing was a problem, and the food was delicious.

Highly recommend visiting this restaurant to rest weary legs in the walled city of Assisi.
