This was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. After a quick train ride out of crazy Rome, we enjoyed the quiet surrounds of Castel Gandolfo. The restaurant has a beautiful setting, wonderful food and very gracious service. Try to get a table outside overlooking the water and settle in for a long afternoon. Before lunch, take a... More

This restaurant is very well located overlooking the Lake Albano. They open only around 12.30 PM so you can have your lunch. There is sitting on the long balcony with a lovely view of the lake. The inside of the restaurant had also been tastefully done. The service is friendly. The young and good looking chap taking our order spoke... More

Breathtaking views, just amazing. I could have had no food and would still be pleased with it. However, we did have food. A lot of it. The owner and her son suggested what we should it.

It's necessary to reserve a seat here if you'd like to sit outside and enjoy the view. We took the bruscetta's with Pork = Amazingly good. After, I took the lasagna which is made with mushrooms and truffle. (no tomato sauce). Pretty small piece, but very yummy.

We had made reservations in advanced and arrived early. They opened at 7:30, we sat outside the restaurant and waited for them to open. The owner who walked in and out several times didn't even look at us. Then at 7:45 we entered the restaurant and seated at a lovely table outside with beautiful views. The issue we have is... More

We had some very good food. It was probably the best Italian food we have had in Italy, after spending two weeks in Southern Italy. The service was also very good, and the waiters spoke a very good English.

Lovely location overlooking the lake but the food was at best average. Would not return or recommend. Pricing was fair shame about the quality

We had dinner here twice in a week. Great food and wine. The staff were very friendly and explained the menu options, as our Italian is rubbish.

Had a lovely lunch here with my family on a Saturday afternoon after a visit to the papal gardens. Spectacular views and delicious food. Service was quick and staff were very attentive to my brother's allergies. Make sure to get a seat outside!
