Right around the corner from the Hotel dei Priori, we were fortunate enough to stumble upon this incredible restaurant. We had no reservations, but were quickly seated and received very attentive and courteous service. It was black truffle season and two of our dishes included them in the chef's specials of a chilled tomato soup and gnocchi, both utterly divine. The fennel salad, house pasta and lamb were also thoroughly enjoyed. The lamb was outstanding - the best tasting we have ever had in a restaurant. The sommelier was excellent, offered wonderful suggestions and clearly very experienced. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in a five-star meal that is moderately priced with wonderful local wine list.

After arriving in Assisi on a Friday night and not finding any place open to have dinner (only tagliere and sandwich) we reserved a table to have dinner at the restaurant.
Some comments said that it took long for them to be served or that the staff was rude, which I totally disagree. They were very professional and I had a wonderful gnocchi (simetrically cut, even if handmade) with gorgonzola cheese and tartufo nero. Also great ham in the starter. I've also been to other restaurants in Assisi but certainly this was the best choice.

We had finished a day of touring (walking) and resting by the fountain. We looked up and saw the Taverna dei Consoli. It had a terrace overlooking the piazza. We called and got a reservation for that night and were happy we did. It is a family owned restaurant and you can see the kitchen as you walk in the place. We had a nice table on the terrace. The servers were very helpful with the dishes. We all had pasta (ravioli, parpadelle pasta with wild boar, gnocchi) and it was all wonderful. We recommend a meal here while visiting Assisi.

I rarely give 5 stars on TripAdvisor - there is always a detail missing, something that could be improved upon. This is therefore an exception...

The restaurant is centrally located, and the terrace is an absolute highlight - I came early enough (8pm) to bag a table without a reservation but that was only because of a no-show. You get beautiful views of the buildings around and the sky, completely shielded from the sight of the tourists etc as the umbrellas of the cafe below cover the whole view of the street.

The restaurant serves local wine, including two types of Montefalco red. I had 'a selection of breads' for antipasti which turned out to be 5 bruschettas with tomatoes, nduja, and mushroom.

The main I went for was an omelette with black truffles. Now this was THE BEST OMELETTE I HAVE EVER EATEN - fluffy but not too airy, full of flavour but not overwhelmingly 'eggy' and the black truffles were a nice touch - but that dish itself would be a good enough reason for me to come back to Assisi. Absolutely phenomenal; hope it stays on the menu forever!

Great food, great views, great local wine, efficient service. A 5 star experience!

During our two months in Assisi, we ate at Taverna dei Consoli at least twice a week, often just as two, but also with anyone and everyone who came to town. The food was always delicious, and the restaurant staff is consistently kind, attentive, and accommodating. The wine list is perfectly-sized, and sitting above the piazza was a lovely way to enjoy the main square of Assisi without also enjoying the "ambiance" of automobile exhaust. We love the food and staff of Taverna dei Consoli so much that when we tried to eat there on our very last night in Assisi and found the restaurant closed (Wednesdays -- nota bene!), there were tears.
