Where to eat economically in Assisi

ASSISI - Via Borgo Aretino 11/B

Wondering where to eat in Assisi?

In the city of St. Francis, when you're on a trip with family or friends, solving the problem of lunch often risks becoming a nightmare.
So read on, I'll help you choose.

Where to eat in Assisi Trattoria or Restaurant

Based on my very long experience in this beautiful city, when you are on a trip to Assisi Old TownAssisi, around 12 o'clock the first question you'll ask yourself is bound to be like this:
"Let's eat something on the fly and continue our walk, we still have a lot of things to see..."
"But Where To Eat Best Assisi Sandwich or a Cheap Assisi Restaurant ?"

In the Historic Centre of Assisi

Between a grocery store and typical products, a sandwich or "torta al testo", a bar, a restaurant Assisi with typical Umbrian dishes, the pizzeria, the trattoria, an osteria and unfortunately also some "tourist trap", hunger grips you and you are certainly undecided and disoriented in the choice of where to eat in Assisi.
You immediately think: "Somewhere here in the center I will find something to eat quickly and without spending a fortune?

Then you Google, go to TripAdvisor and start reading reviews and looking at pictures.
One such thought follows, which is often shared with fellow travel itineraries:
"On these sites you can never tell if the reviews are true or false, and you can't tell how much we're going to spend and if there's room."

Maybe some of your friends, or your wife (or husband), will whisper:
"Now I have to sit in a noisy, crowded restaurant, wait, order, and maybe it's not even cheap."

The usual couple of friends with two children will say under their breath:
"Then I have the children who don't eat anything and in restaurants they don't sit more than five minutes".

You have to choose and you're already anxious:

"If I make the wrong choice I risk ruining this beautiful day for all my friends and family who are with me...."
It's true. I can relate. It happens to me too when I'm a tourist.
It really takes very little to turn a nice outing into a nightmare to forget, especially when it comes to food, you're far from home in an obviously very touristy city, and you're looking for a cheap restaurant, or just a cheap lunch to eat tasty and fast with your friends and relatives while traveling.

You, or one of your friends, might at this moment say:
"It's actually a nice day, there are also many of us and the thought of sitting in a place, maybe crowded and noisy, and wait and order without knowing what to choose, I don't like so much. Come on let's eat something on the fly so we can continue the trip.

"You want there to be no sandwich place?"

In fact, choosing a restaurant, a pizzeria, a wine bar, a bistro or an osteria, a trattoria or an inn, in short, any place to sit down with friends, to order and eat in this city, is always an enterprise.
The reviews on TripAdvisor are a starting point, but perhaps what can help you settle in with a quick lunch is something cheaper, informal, fast but still tasty, and that can leave you with a good memory.

If you have read this far, AssaggiAssisi is for you.

Where to Eat in Assisi Spending Little Money

And then how good it is to eat a sandwich in the open air?

I'm sure you, like me, can taste the difference in the heady flavour and aroma of freshly made bread.
Everyone likes a sandwich, there is no one who doesn't love it, adults and children alike can fill it to their own personal taste. Often when you are out with friends and family and don't have the faintest idea what to eat, you almost always decide on a sandwich that you can eat on the fly.
Even if it's a small party or a quiet evening watching television in your own living room without having to cook, the sandwich will turn up.

We all have fond memories associated with a sandwich.

Who as a kid has never sat at a little wall eating one stuffed with salami, ham or mortella and drinking a coke while talking and laughing with their friends?

Even simply on a youthful date, when you find yourself together in the afternoon on the streets of the city, what do you choose to eat? A nice quick sandwich, it always gives positive and exciting memories.

5 star review  AssaggiAssisi is more than just a place to buy sandwiches, it is a true tasting tour: the friendly clerk will take between 10 and 20 minutes to let a dozen customers at a time taste all the available salumi, accompanied by a glass of wine. The products are refined and artisanal: wild boar, venison or truffle salami are just a few examples. Priced very competitively, you may have to wait until the end of one or two of the previous tours, but it is absolutely worth it. Highest marks!

thumb David Lordi

5 star review  Great idea. Everything great. Great tasting of cold cuts (6 different types) and cheeses (at least 2). During the tasting we were also given half a glass of red wine. At the counter we opted for the 7 euro Ciabatta (bigger than the 5 euro one) and this also allowed us an additional small tasting with spicy cheese and truffle cheese. We had a Ciabatta with coral and Semi-aged pecorino cheese and a Ciabatta with truffled wild boar salami with spicy cheese. All this would have come 14 euros;we also had a very good Umbrian craft beer with cicerchie. Total cost of lunch 19 euros really well spent. Excellent products that enhance the Umbrian territory, sympathy of the guys who work. We enjoyed it all at the little wall, with a beautiful view and the company of greedy pigeons. Really compliments.

thumb Vincenzo Giliberti

5 star review  What can I say...super! The idea of the place is very original: first a tasting tour of local cold cuts and cheeses, then you choose the sandwich (€5 or €7 depending on the size) and finally you choose the perfect match for everyone's taste; the price also includes a small bottle of water and everything is served in a basket. There are no tables but you can safely eat on the walls in front of the restaurant with a breathtaking view of Assisi. The value for money is excellent and of course you can also buy their products!
