Locanda del Podestà

Restaurant, Italian, Mediterranean, Vegetarian, $$$
A short walk up the hill from the Basilica of Saint Francis is where you’ll find this tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant. With its low-vaulted ceilings and stone walls, Locanda del Podestà has plenty of charm. It’s another great spot to try all the Umbrian classics too, because the dishes here are simple yet full of flavor. Try the homemade gnocchi with gorgonzola.
