La Osteria Pizzetta dell'Erba, Assisi

15A Via San Gabriele dell'Addolorata
Italy 06081
Tel: 39 075 815 352's insider take:

If you're stuck for a meal in Assisi, you'll find this bright and cheerful osteria is a cut above the rest. It's set below the cathedral of San Rufino, where an herb and vegetable market used to be (the restaurant's name translates as "Little Herb Square"). Vegetables are still much in evidence here: Beef carpaccio with artichoke hearts, and saffron-flavored pappardelle paired with chunky ratatouille are dishes you might find on the seasonal menu. The wine selection is small but carefully chosen: Ask the waiter to guide you toward a good bottle.

Closed Mondays, late January, and early February.
