Assisi Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Assisi

July 30, 2017 Jeremy Dunfee

Best known as the birthplace of St. Francis, Italy's patron saint, Assisi lies amid Umbria's rolling hills. Religious pilgrims have come here for centuries to visit the Basilica of San Francesco (where St. Francis is buried) and the Basilica of Santa Chiara (to see the tomb of St. Clare). Visit the Eremo delle Carceri to see caves where medieval hermits withdrew from the world. (You may find such solitude quite appealing—especially if you're here on a daytrip from Rome!)

Amazing modern take on local Italian produce. The Gorgonzola soufflé with pear and walnuts was sublime and the pork with caponata, onion and yoghurt to die for.

La Locanda del Cardinale

Reviewed By 1HappyTravellerr - Charleston, South Carolina

Having dinner looking at Roman ruins through a glass floor is truly a unique experience. Add delicious food and gracious service and you have an incredible experience. It was expensive, but well worth it.
My wife and I had the Chief's choice. We especially enjoyed the salmon course. It was very refreshing on a particularly hot night in Assisi. The waiter gave us excellent service and was eager to tell us about the history of the restaurant and the area.
The Chief came by our table twice to ask us about our experience and tell us about his visits to the U.S. We were delighted by our dining experience at La Locanda del Cardinale.
For local history buffs, we were told that the piazza outside the restaurant was where St. Francis removed his clothes and renounced his worldly possessions.
We look forward to returning.

Reviewed By Penny A

Delicious Umbrian cuisine comes out of a tiny kitchen, cheerfully served, reliably delicious. A bit off the main drag, it's well worth seeking out. Good prices, a fairly short but more than adequate all local wine list. The walks are hung with art, excellent ambience. Would like to go back again, if we weren't moving on.

Very popular shop. The pizza has a fabulous taste and is light and crispy. The sandwiches also are delicious. It's very popular and busy at times. It's right outside San Rufino so you can plan your visit to both. Closed mondays. Stop by. Best pizza in town

Reviewed By Jordan M - United Kingdom

Excellent stop for a quick bite - you can even choose the type of flour (4 choices in total I believe) your 'toastie'. The walnut/honey/chicory toastie special is tremendous!
Service is quick and extremely friendly. We even got offered some biscuits for free - once chocolate and one with a star anise base. Both delicious.
Overall, really good.

This place made the top of the list in Assisi because the food, ambiance, and service were of excellent quality. Roberto the owner was so nice and we chatted about his inspiration for the restaurant while having a coffee. I really hope I can visit this place again in the future cause I need to do a beer tasting!

Steps from the historic central piazza. Family owned and operated. Local and fresh meals for breakfast and dinner. Coffee, pastries, local wine, beer and a full bar. Wood-burning fireplace for the chilly days and air-conditioned during the summer. Homemade lasagna, tiramisu and fresh pasta daily.

Reviewed By Seth G - Happy Valley, Oregon

This small restaurant near the main square was not crowded and had the beast service and food we've had in Italy. We were offered a complementary aperatif immediately and the owner came right over to explain the menu. The fiochetti, a small pasta purse filled with gorgonzola ,with a pear sauce, was a wonderful combination on sweet and salty. The gnocchi with Bolognese was light and delicious, enjoyed with as bottle of the local white wine. Also shared an antipasto of gator with tomatoes and arugula. You will love this place!
