In the Medieval town of Assisi, known for being the town of St. Francis, there is one restaurant that is a must to take in the beauty of Assisi.
In the five-star Nun Relais and Spa Museum, there aren’t just luxurious rooms and a relaxing spa to take advantage of. There’s also the famous EAT OUT Osteria Gourmet restaurant, a place where all your senses will be pleasantly awakened.
If you’re a wine enthusiast, nothing will stop you from admiring the restaurant’s amazing wine collection on display at the entrance. Nothing except for the view of Assisi’s fortress illuminated by the colors of the sunset!
For me, dining in the terrace was simply a must. How can you give up on the stunning view of the fortress, the chapels and the landscape? You can’t! If you arrive at 8pm during summer, you’ll have the luxury of sipping a glass of wine while witnessing the sky turn into shades of yellow, orange, pink and blue.
For those that want to dine indoors, the atmosphere is cozy and elegant, and the jaw-dropping view of Assisi is right there for you to admire from the restaurant’s large windows.
But it’s not just your sight that will pray you to come back to EAT OUT Osteria Gourmet, it’s also your taste buds. EAT OUT Osteria Gourmet serves excellent Italian and regional dishes with a contemporary twist. The structure, the taste and the plating of each and every dish has been thoroughly studied.
We started out with the zucchini tempura and its flowers with yogurt flavoured with wild herbs and Francesco Rossi’s selection of goat cheese. To continue, we ordered a seafood special of the day, and I had the sublime tortello stuffed with ricotta cheese and fiordilatte, zucchini cream and herring roe (a must)! To accompany it all, a great Chardonnay of Castello della Sala.
And if you have a sweet tooth, you’ll be excited to read the desserts menu! Everything seems delicious and sophisticated. And it doesn’t just seem like it is, IT IS delicious! My friend ordered the banana split, and after having a bite of it, I immediately ordered one for myself! And of course, two glasses of sweet wine couldn’t be missing!
For those that want a wonderful gourmet experience in Umbria, EAT OUT Osteria Gourmet is definitely a place to put on your list. Don’t forget to make a reservation.
