Wandered into a small restaurant in Assisi on a rainy day. The chef Mario prepared an amazing meal. We had, among other things, a souffle with cheese and chickpea sauce, lasagna with eggplant and mushrooms and spaghetti with bacon and cream.

We stopped at Assisi en-route from Tuscany to Marche and found this little gem tucked away from the main tourist area. We ordered a variety of things to share and were rewarded with a couple of stunning dishes. We had the octopus, thick tender melt in your mouth this was the best octopus I think I've ever eaten. We had... More

A relaxed lunch for two at a shaded outdoor table. The polpo (octopus) starter was superb, followed by tagliatelle with lamb ragu and baccala al forno. (We fought over the those!) With a bottle of Barbera we were in heaven. Visited 19 May 2015.

A big festival was going on in Assisi. Our hotel made reservations at a restaurant, but when we arrived it was closed! Not sure where the miscommunication was. We wondered around, looking for a place to eat, but everything was full. We stopped at Osteria Piazzetta dell'Erba. They said that they were also full. They had a couple of seats... More

A tiny little sort of square surrounded by houses, under the trees, beside a walkway. I had an excellent lunch with friends and recommend this place if you want to test some daring Italian cuisine. The menù has rather unique propositions and can truly amaze you -without excess. A place to test and to select as base camp for lunches... More

We're Americans living in Italy for over 2 years. Had lunch here. Fantastic. I rarely write reviews but this place was worth it.

My wife and I spent 10 days in central Italy on the trail of Piero della Francesca frescoes and paintings. Although none of his works can be seen in Assisi, we spent three nights in Assisi due to its proximity to both Perugia and Urbino. Our dinner at Piazzetta dell'Erba was the best we encountered during those 10 days. The... More

Carbonara is a must. Wonderful chef, always new dishes in the menu. Strongly recommended. Fair prices and top quality. Just two steps away from the central square.

I would have given them a five had the service been a little faster. However they were full so they could be forgiven. The food is excellent and some real chef runs the kitchen managing to bring out delicious traditional simple dishes alongside more adventurous combinations of tastes and flavours. Nice food presentation. Good selection of wine and nice friendly... More
