Often when one has such a charming setting with an amazing view, the food does not measure up. Not here! It was delicious. Franca, the owner, prepares whatever is fresh that day and that is what is served. No real menu, so it feels like you are eating at a friend's home. Of course, pitchers of house wine on the... More

My wife and I came across La Fontanella Ristorante almost by accident. Franca is the owner and cook. On our first visit we had a Pasta dish and on our second we had fish. In terms of delicious meals it really doesn't get better than that. Thanks Franca and we will certainly visit your ristorante again when we return to... More

This restaurant is a home-town kind of place. The owner cooks and serves: a one woman operation (at least it was when we were there). My group of 10 really enjoyed the delicious and simple cuisine - be prepared for a very small selection. The view of the valley below creates an awesome place to have a meal. We won't... More

We visited Assisi in early May and ate lunch in the garden at La Fontanella. They don't have a menu since the owner cooks different foods every day. We were sitting outside in the garden area and it started to rain so we moved inside.They don't speak English but there was a guest there that was able to translate. I... More

In a hidden and beautiful garden overlooking the town of Assisi, a group of 5 of us was treated to one of the best meals we had in Umbria. Franca the owner served us her amazing food and just picked asparagus over delicious pasta. Her garden and her food are amazing and delightful! It was a truly enchanting experience for... More

Our Assisi guide pointed us to this unassuming, unique little restaurant, whose owner/chef, Franca, is part of the area's cultural heritage association. She only cooks for guests she knows are coming and makes one meal (no menu) in a kitchen located in the beautiful garden of the restaurant. The view is excellent, but we were there on a very blustery,... More

We have eaten here many times over the years.

We came to this restaurant unexpected, yet it turned out to be a great little Italian experience and I highly recommend it. The woman who owned the place, while serving and tending at the same time, was amazing. The food was great and so different from anything else we have had on this trip. Also if you sit outside you...
