We discovered this restaurant going off up the fill from the road, because it had a pretty lighted walk going up the hill from the road. When we went in, we were the only customers, but it soon filled up with other pilgrims from the USA like ourselves, as well as some locals. The food was good, the service was... More

Can't say enough good things about this restaurant! Out of five nights in Assisi we ate there 3 times! The menu is great, the fresh sourced food is fantastic and the staff very warm and welcoming. We could walk to it from our hotel too. Loved it!!

The entrance to La Lanterna is very appealing - candle lights guide your way. The atmosphere is alluring! Thereafter be warned! The food is average, the staff lack attention. BUT check your bill at the end. We got stung and despite protestations afterwards no refund was forthcoming.

Very good location. Attractive and romantic place. Italian food like pizza, canelloni quite good. I wodn't recommend the lamb. I was hardly able to find the meat, mostly bones :((.

My son and I ate lunch here one day when out exploring Assisi. The passageway intrigued us and as we checked it out we discovered La Lanterna. I have to admit that our food was only average, but the setting was as charming as you can imagine.

Started with the assorted Umbria cold cuts and cheese for the table. Had the delicious local special of strangozzi with porcini mushrooms and truffles. My three year old loved this too. Husband had the ravioli with truffle too. Dinner el fresco in the alley surrounded by floral trellises and medieval archways.

A beautiful location up a small alley, very good food and a great service. Our recommended dish: Tagliolimi all'herba cippolina with cheese - the delicious pasta is served on top of a delicious parmigiana cheese waffle. We spent a lovely evening here!

We visited Assisi as part of our honeymoon. We were in the town for several days and this was by far the best restaurant we tried. Located just between the square of St. Rufino and the main square of the town, the restaurant is quickly accessible yet slightly out of the main traffic flow of tourists. The food was excellent,...

This place is tucked off the busy main street. We were relieved to have a bit of peace and quiet from the crowds in town for the peace walk. We both had salads. One was the salmon salad and the other the tuna salad. For 9 euros it was a complete meal and tasty enough. Service was good. We can... More

This restaurant is reasonably priced with a lovely outdoor area. The food is well priced and plentiful, and also suitable for families.
