If you plan to visit Assisi, book a lunch time to visit Osteria dell'Erba - you will enjoy great food and wine for a very reasonable price.
Outside sitting is nice, but if a day is hot you can take a table inside.
We were offered a compliment from a chef - bread with a slice of salami- nice touch while you're waiting for a lunch
Olive oil with bread is delicious- accompanied with a glass of a local Chardonnay - mind blowing )
We had crab cakes, eggplants for a starter and an octopus as a main dish.
Crab cake comes with an apple lemonade - unusual and just great.
Eggplant with cheese and crispy cover was nice, tender and light
Octopus was the top, tender, fresh, tasty.
So, everything is perfect. Lunch is an enjoyment
Very recommended place to spend hot midday in Umbria

This place is just off the main square in Assisi (the one where the town hall is and the Roman temple that is now a church). The owners, chefs and staff are all energetic young people. I had a great antipasto of smoked salmon, burrata, arugula and strawberries that was other-worldly, followed by an eggplant filled pasta that was superb. They also have a great and affordable wine list. Don't miss this place if you are in Assisi. It is small, though, so reserve ahead of time.

Just up a terrace from the main road out, below San Rufino. Outside or indoors. Run by nice people whose pictures are on the table mats, in case you forget.
Lots of standard dishes, but many with a twist - liquorish ice cream for example.
Decent house wine and not too expensive.

I cannot describe how fantastic the lunch we had here was. We had the truffle risotto and it was to die for. In a sea of delicious but fairly generic Italian restaurants, this one stood out. The service, the presentation, and ultimately, the food, were just other worldly. I am so glad we stopped here and followed the rest of the tripadvisor reviews. Do yourself a favor and do the same.

Lovely interior. Great house red wine. Husband's ravioli with eggplant was sublime. Kids enjoyed their Caesar salads. Great (if a little pricey) spot to sit and rest your hill-climbing legs in one of our favorite towns anywhere.
