Assisi (Perugia)

Ristorante Buca di San Francesco

of Giovanni Betti
Ristorante Buca di San Francesco

A perfect sightseeing day in Assisi: in the morning the Basilica of Saint Francis, in the afternoon the Church of Saint Claire. In between let’s enjoy a nice meal in this restaurant located in a historical building with vaulted ceilings and a nice pergola for the summer season.
Family run for 30 years, it lists in the menu the classical dishes of the Umbria cuisine paying special attention to meat and mushroom dishes. Recent refurbishing makes it ideal for disabled people.

Buon Ricordo speciality

Piccione all’assisana

Umbria is known to be the greenest of Italian regions and its cuisine benefits from this. In fact, game is abundant in this region. Pigeon has always been hunted for sport or food. However, nowadays when it comes to cooking, game-bird breeding is used, as meat is tastier and tenderer. This recipe wants the fowl cooked in a pan with juniper berries and a sauce made from fowl liver and gizzard. As far as wine is concerned, a well-textured Sagrantino di Montefalco is recommended to enhance the meal savour.
