So we chose to eat there after trying few places in the area (so many great ones...). This still was able to stand out! Much smaller than many but definitely having a fantastic charm, great food and perfect service. Their main meals might be taking a bit time to arrive but it's a worth wait. Locally sourced food, served by... More

Dropped in for lunch as they had a free table on the terrazzo with lake view. There were only a few people in the restaurant which was slightly worrying. However, when we received a sharing plate of fish from the lake we knew that we'd struck lucky. Really very good as were the tagliatelle and risotto dishes. The only disappointment... More

We had crostini misti and fettuccine con lepre. Both dishes deserve and excellent mark however the fettuccine were unacceptably small. I recommend but inform the waiter you want acceptable sizable dishes. The ambiance is great, service nice and relaxed (it's not a fast food fortunately). Good selection of local dishes!

This is a lovely restaurant. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. The restaurant would be an excellent place for someone looking for a real treat of a meal, and yet they were perfectly happy with our four children, who are not the quietest! I would recommend any of the dishes we had - my own gnocchi... More

Typical Umbria/Tuscany food, very well prepared and with very good presentation and excellent taste. The choice is also very good and also the wine list is good for any budget. If you book in advance, you can also eat on the nice balcony with view on lake Trasimeno.

The fish antipasti made a nice change from the typical meat feast! Delicious saffron risotto. Rear terrace not particularly attractive during the day. We sat outside in the front - much nicer tables and you can watch the world go by.

We came to this place for a lunch. The welcome was friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant was nice.The starters were quite delicious but the main courses were not tasty. The fish was dry and overcooked. It seems that it was not cooked by professionals. Moreover, we had a pain in the stomach afterwards. It is not a place... More

I eat here everytime I visit Castiglione del Lago. The food is made with so much love... I always go for their vegetarian risotto although thats because I know I can sneak a taste of everybody else's plate. The desserts are a work of art. A family run restaurant that won't disappoint & so reasonably priced too :) I love... More
