Assisi restaurant recs

We are spending a day in Assisi. Would be very interested in any great choices for places to eat. We will be there on a Sunday.

Excellent meal. Excellent service. Great atmosphere. I started with bruschetta with truffles, followed by cannilloni with chicken and pork with a bechamel sauce; porcini mushrooms in a garlic sauce; roasted lamb; baked cream with a fruit sauce (similar to raspberry); a nice bottle of red wine. Reenie had a wild boar appetizer followed by pidgeon in a wine sauce and assorted vegetables; Vin Santo with biscuits to dip into the wine. Her meal was a "menu" which totaled 40.000L plus the cover charge of 3.000L/$20.19. My total came to 70.000L/$32.86. Paid with Visa.

We did find a small ristorante that was off the beaten path. We were definitely the only tourists there. It was the Ristorante Bar Anfiteatro on Via Anfiteatro Romano, 4 near the Porta Perlici. This is on the tall hill behind Santa Chiara. In this area was a tiny, ancient outdoor theatre and is now a lovely little neighborhood. I swear, I had the best Zuppo di vedure in my life. My son had penne with 4 cheeses and he ate more than I’ve ever seen. It was truly a treat. Find it if you can. (Tel 075 813 025).

I thought that the food and service were great at the resturant of the hotel Fontabella. Also a good experience in 1999 at the restaurant for hotel Umbra.

Best wishes,

And it's still good at the Umbra in 2002.

Pn the way up to the hemitage (eramo) above Assisi you will see a tavola calda called "Le Carcerelle" - if you can sit outside, it is a in wonderful position and serves excellent, simple, homemade food at a very reasonable price.
