Just off one of the shopping streets in Assisi. Food lovely, service great, well,priced.
Courgette fritters stuffed with prawns were outstanding, Caesar salad great, lemon semifreddo with mint and rosemary sauce lovely. Lovely setting.

Took a group of people for a meal and an evening at this restaurant. The food was wonderful, great antipasti and a huge selection of pizzas. The drinks menu was great and very reasonably priced. But the highlight of the evening were the 4 young students from the assisi school of medieval music who entertained us with period music with four instruments and singing. They were dressed in period costumes. This was just wonderful. It provided a most memorable evening. Do not miss it. Music to dine for!

We spent three days and two nights in Assisi. The pizza at Il Menestrello is quite simply ... Amazing!!! This is by far the best pizza we have had since arriving in Italy last week. I had the mushroom and sausage in red sauce. My husband had the prosciutto. They were delicious!!! We had the classic thin crust, baked to perfection. Not too soft not too crispy. We saw they chef make them ... They were out of the oven in less than three minutes.
Assisi is amazing and with this kind of pizza available, we don't want to leave!
Enjoy :)

I wanted to try the local pasta dish so ordered it here, the strangozzi. a bit too much sauce maybe, but the pasta was lovely, with which I ordered the grilled vegetables. I presumed it would be the normal courgettes and aubergines, but also there were grilled chicory and whole mushrooms, all sprinkled with herbes/olive oil and served hot, pure divine! I would come back just for the veg! nice to see the caffè at 1euro, as in 'normal' italian places... the cafes of Assisi charge the most possible to the tourists for their coffee. one remark for the restaurant, note that they only do pizza the evenings and not at lunchtime, but there is a light lunch menu.

Located on a side street off Piazza del Comune this beautiful Pizzeria is a must. We were not staying in Assis so unfortunately we were only able to have lunch, but what a lunch. The restaurant is simply beautiful with Roman ruins, floors and walls it is just incredible. We were disappointed that they don't serve pizza at lunch, but we were not disappointed in our lunches. We visited Assisi twice while we were in Italy and went here for lunch both times, our waiter was charming. The next time we go to Italy we will stay in Assisi so that we can have dinner.
