“splendid food and fine wine”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

This is probably the best restaurant in upper Assisi, with marvellous fresh unfussy food cooked to a high standard. The local wild boar stew was tasty. The high point for me was the perfect chocolate pudding which it is hard to imagine could be bettered.

“For Meat Eater”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

If you like meat or wild game this is the place. The menu is posted outside to check out earlier in the day to see what you might want. If you don't like meat try the pasta with black trufflles. All great food and wines.

“Attentive & Kind Staff. Quality Umbrian Cuisine.”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

We enjoyed a very nice lunch in La Fortezza, last month. The staff was extremely kind, courteous, and helpful. All of our dishes were very good and very good examples of local Umbrian cuisine. The service was very attentive and the dishes were even brought out covered to maintain the heat. We actually had limited time, so I spoke with the manager and asked him to bring the dishes out as they are prepared... not waiting for all appetizers or entrees to be presented at the same time. The manager was most kind and happy to assist. I would return again if I was in Assisi.

“Wonderful!!!”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

Very classy service and wonderful dishes, some not found in your run-of-the-mill tourist trap let alone tourist destination. For instance, the wild boar stew was Devine. Prices are fair and below average for a city based mostly on tourism. I would heartily recommend for a memorable meal!!
