A friend had recommended this place to our group. Julian our waiter took great care of us. The food was great. His recommendations on wine and food were great.. Had such a great time we came back a second time. Highly recommend this place.

I loved everything about this exceptional restaurant. Location: steps from the main square. Decor: a stunning building with an interesting history. Service: it was the best! Wine: I had an excellent bottle of the house wine, Pietramala, a white wine from Umbria, by Terre Margaritelli. Food: Exceptional!! I'm staying in Assisi for three nights, and I plan on returning to... More

We had a little trouble finding this restaurant. But it was worth it. Very friendly staff with perfect English. Food was good. Perhaps not one of the trip's highlights. But you can't go wrong here.

Our group of 20 had a very good tourist menu, 2 courses with dessert. It was pre arranged by a friend of the owner Very nice atmosphere. The owner is from New Jersey, but his father is a native born person of Assisi. Greg Uhrig

One of the great things about Assisi is wandering through the side streets. Assisi is the kind of place where you should not only do this, but not be afraid to. If you do, then you will find places that are not in the tourist guide books and offer a true local experience. This is one of those places.

This new restaurant, open only a year, should develop into one of the best known ones in Assisi. Go before it gets full of people. Julio, or Julian, runs the front of the restaurant and is one of the three friends who own the taverna (don't worry, it's not a tavern as we know it in America). He has lived... More

Shocking, how good the food was from the 2 boys from New Jersey. Having roots in both the US and Italy gave them the opportunity to follow their dream and open open a restaurant. I am only sorry that they are off the beaten path and miss the nightly traffic. Their food is deserving of a wider audience. We had... More

Soooo good. I had the stew with pork over polenta and licked my plate clean. My brother's food was equally amazing. This was my favorite meal in Italy!

Our host, Julian, is Italian-American and an owner of the restaurant, so menu consulting and general guidance is easy. After 3+ weeks in Italy, lunch here was the best we've had, and the price was very reasonable. Moreover, it's a beautiful, traditional Italian restaurant, comfortable and warm. Steep street down to get there (about 200 meters), but very worthwhile. The... More
