Osteria Piazzetta Dell’Erba, a Restaurant in Assisi

Last Sunday we drove to the Umbrian town of Assisi, we started our day out with Sunday lunch at a great restaurant, the Osteria Piazzetta dell’Erba, a short walk from the central piazza. The weather was quite unsettled last week so we had a table inside but there are a few tables outside where you can sit in good weather.

Great Food

The food really was delicious, we chose a starter and some of us went on to have pasta whilst others chose a meat course before moving on to dessert.

Popular With Locals

I can thoroughly recommend the food here and plenty of locals seemed to agree. Many of the dishes were based on traditional Umbrian fare, they were presented imaginatively and the ingredients used were slightly different.
