Gracious host, attentive wait staff, delicious food! Beautiful place...a restaurant one should definitely eat at when in Assisi. They even have a lift at the front entrance for persons challenged by the steps.

Returning to Buca you find the ams staff and the same excellence. This out of the way dinning experience will not disappoint. The pasta alla Norcina was spectacular as was eating outside on a sunny October Saturday!

We had a lovely supper here. Very Italian...which is great. No pizza and great menu and wine! Lovely courtyard for warm evenings and good value. No piped music!

If Umbrian tastes sit umperically on your palate, than this delightful eatery located in a cellar beneath an elegant townhouse, is where we recommend you make a bee-line for. The welcoming aromas hit the right note as does the classic elegance. Typical of Umbrian produce...More

The restaurant looked promising from outside. But what a mistake - the first tell-tale sign was the choice of music- pop music played from a radio station that does not complement the ambience of the restaurant. The only thing worth eating was the assorted appetizers....More
