S.S. 147 Assisana, 124, Bastia Umbra, 06083
We stayed in this place, just a few minute drive from the walled city. It looks a little 'corporate' in the interior public spaces, but has a nice exterior garden and our room had a large terrace that faced Asissi. The restaurant had a pretty good breakfast, but what really surprised us was how good the dinner was (not sure what possessed us to try it that night, vs returning to the walled city). It was very good regional cuisine. As usual I had the pasta w/ cinghiale. I think my wife had some grilled meats.
Trattoria da Erminio
06081 Assisi (PG)
The most memorable dining experience we had on out entire trip was dinner at an outside table at this trattoria inside the walled city. It did not look like much, but the setting was really nice. The adjacent building walls were lit by gas lamps, and you had the sense that any moment a few knights on horseback would come clomping down the cobblestone walkway. The food was fantastic. Their take on the cinghiale sauce differed from all others I have tried, as instead of a bolognaise consistency it was small cubes of braised shoulder in a smooth sauce largely flavored with, well, pork products I think my wife had a mixed grill w/ some rabbit and other critters.
