We came across this restaurant on our penultimate day in the area (see review of Romantik Hotel Le Silve di Armenzano) whilst walking through the side streets of Assisi getting close to dusk. We were thinking how great it would be to find a place to eat, overlooking the surrounding plain watching a beautiful sunset. Hey presto!! We were let in before opening time and given a table out on the lower balcony. It was a stunning location at a magical time of day. Perfect! The food wasn't to be sniffed at either. With an authentic, rustic, homemade feel, apparently prepared with local produce it was beautifully cooked and very, very good. The staff were friendly and helpful with a manager/owner/chef who came out every now and again to check if all was ok, happy to chat if you wanted. We booked another table for our final evening and had an equally wonderful meal and sunset. Fantastic!

We stumbled across this little gem whilst watching the sun setting. We hadn't booked, but they had room for us on there 3 tiered balcony. What a view! Great service and the food...Excellent. Beautiful fresh home made pasta. Highly recommend.

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.
