Description: The restaurant Giovannino's is a famil-run restaurant, situated in the calm of the Umbrian hills 4 kms from Assisi. To reach the restaurant you can take the ss444 street to Ponte Grande. From "Porta Perlici" Assisi's door, you will be in restaurant in 5 minutes by car. Ample free parking lot. To this day our strong point has been the local specialities: handmade tagliatelle, meat which we still grill on the open fire accompanied by Umbria's most famous dish, 'torta al testo', a type of thick,soft,flat bread baked on the hearth. The 'torta al testo' that we make is not the traditional recipe that everyone knows, but is in fact a recipe thought up by Aurora, Giovannino's wife. Another ours popular dish is coratella, (stewed lamb) Our secret to prepare good dishes, is always use fresh ingredient without artificial colourants or preservatives.

The kind of restaurant you hope to find when traveling. While staying in Assisi, we have eaten five meals here. The food is made from scratch, with local ingredients, and the restaurant is always full of locals. Everything we’ve had is excellent. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful; each dish shows thoughtful cooking, and the flavors are complex and rich.

Oh, and the prices are about 1/3-1/2 what you’d pay in the tourist areas. Clean, inviting, with nice outdoor dining and old guys sitting around outside, solving the world’s problems. A gem!

The true family run ristorante in the countryside, the best tastes you can imagine. Our landlady descibed the place as: "Bene, bene, bene, bene, bene!" and she was right!
Maybe the best place to eat if you don't mind simple but hearty hospitality.

We dined here twice on a visit to Assisi. The restaurant is well-presented in a simple style and the food is similar. We enjoyed it very much. It's straightforward food, with a reasonable range including local dishes. The meals were well presented, served fairly promptly and very good value for money. There's plenty of parking. A good place for an an enjoyable meal.

Can thoroughly recommend this Ristorante, having been six/seven times over our local B&B holiday ~ we were staying at the wonderful "Le Ginestre B&B" ~ just a short drive away!!

We visit Assisi every year and eat here regularly. The menu is excellent with a wide range of Umbrian dishes that suit us fine. Service is generally good but this week we encountered a problem. We arrived at the restaurant and were seated inside. There were two other tables seated. After waiting almost half an hour our order was taken. We then waited a further half hour before any food arrived. The other tables faced a similar delay. No explanation was offered although I suspect those dining outside were given preference.
