Several of Assisi’s restaurants and bars serve a local flatbread called torta al testa, often split and stuffed with cheeses, sausages, and vegetables (spinach is popular). It’s a meal in itself and a fast and cheap lunch. La Botega dei Sapori, a wine and food shop right on Piazza del Commune (no. 34) (tel. 075/812204), serves platters of local meats and cheese and a delicious porchetta sandwich, accompanied by one of the excellent wines and served in a cozy tasting room or at a table on the piazza; seating is limited, but if you wish, they’ll fix a snack plate for you to take back to your hotel. They also ship wines.
