It is always disconcerting when there are no other diners in the restaurant. Our hotel made the reservation. Food was really quite ordinary as was the service. One wonders if there was even a chef on duty. We really should have gone back to where we'd had lunch.

This place is hitting on all cylinders right now. Great service by the professional staff was appreciated. The decor is understated, but also relaxed, refined and attractive. We loved the green pasta with artichokes, which over-delivered in flavor. The eggplant dish was prepared with a nice touch and showed refined notes. The pigeon was an absolute home run here, cooked nicely and topped with a fabulous sauce. Very solid wine program here too. Bravo!

At the outset I was touched by the waiter who invited us in with an ironical inviting smile. The place is aesthetically very Umbrian. The food nice and hot and the price ib must say quite reasonable! Go for it!

One of my all time favorites......gourmet food in delightful setting. Make reservations so you don't miss this dining experience. Catia, owner/chef, does a wonderful job; she keeps traditional items on the menu, but isn't afraid to create new taste delights. Alfredo greets you and keeps the dining room running smoothly; he's helpful/respectful and believes good food & wine are to be fully enjoyed. This is a dining experience, so allow the time. My husband and I chose La Fortezza for our "Festa di Matrimoniale," a celebration of our marriage with our Italian friends 7 years ago. Thus we return to dine here with each visit to Italy. Catia loves cooking and the results show it; she makes the effort to warmly greet patrons when time allows. This is a top notch restaurant w/ wine selection to match.

We had a dinner in this restaurant following suggestion of our hotel (with 10% discount). Location was inspiring good medioeval feeling with its nice entrance. However inside lights were too strong and athmosphere wasn't really medioeval. It seemed more a 70's Italian restaurant. We ordered 2 starters and 2 first dishes "a la carte". Dishes were served with good coreographic presentation by the waiter. Quantity and taste was fair to good. However pasta with tartufo was without any smell (tartufo was not parfumed nor tasty but seemed quite woody) and tagliatelle with mushrooms revealed to be very heavy (my wife had bad dreams at night because of such heavy digestion...). Finally price was quite big for the level of these dishes. There are so many good restaurants in Assisi so I am not sure I would recommend this place.
