A good lunch with fantastic views. The service was quick (although our table was singled out for slightly poorer service and they had to be reminded about a couple of things, but everyone else seemed to get everything first time!) and the food was good. We particularly enjoyed the antipasto Metastasio, which included melon with proscuittio, buffalo mozzarella with tomatoes and a spelt wheat salad.
Value was OK, rather than execptional - the cover charge was 2.5 Euros a head, which was the steepest we paid in the eight restaurants we visited during our trip.

Busy restaurant with fantastic views and wonderful food. Service was excellent.

Opens at 12.00 on a Saturday and filled up very quickly, not surprisingly.

They charge you 2.5 euro per person for the view. But i think this worth it. We had had many nice pictures from there. The service was fast and friendly.

Anyone who visits Italy rapidly discovers that while it is easy to get a decent meal, most restaurants in the most tourist-intensive cities don't have to push themselves very hard. They're in Italy, visitors need a place to eat: bingo. And that's why Ristorante Metastasio is so wonderful. As one of the members of our party noted: "the view is so spectacular that I would have probably been satisfied by a mediocre meal. Instead I got something special." First, the view: it is ridiculous. Looking out from a high perch in the hill city of Assisi, it offers a vista from the outdoor tables that is outlandishly awesome and left us struggling for adequate adjectives. But the food is wonderful too, and more interesting than you would expect: the cippolini onion appetizer was simple but perfect, while the fish with prunes (!) was complex and astoundingly good. And you're eating while looking out over mountains and medieval farmhouses in the distance, a view largely the same for hundreds of years. Highly recommended.

The view from the terrace is simply fabulous and makes this place worth visiting in its own right. They are also good on the gluten free front. Food overall was good but not exceptional. Fairly close to the cathedral.
