We were attracted by the concert in the Square, held on Wednesday evenings in July & August. We had a table outside and enjoyed the arias by talented singers. The food was good, though not spectacular. Wonderful Chianti Riserva. The service was friendly throughout but the stars were the singers.

We stumbled across this restaurant by chance. It's very much restaurant rather than cafe (evident in the prices for anything other than pizza) but we enjoyed great local food including fish caught in Lake Trasimeno.

The restaurant sits in a tiny medevial village high on a hill with small square. Great pizza and service for good prices. Fun to watch the local roaming pets hang out on the little square and people watch. Perfect lunch time spot as you are adventuring around the lake area.

Perfect position on the square and and a great pizza. They have a more extensive menu and on another occasion we enjoyed pasta, again very good, but to my taste the pizza was better. The house wine is very drinkable and the opportunity to people watch is great. We will be back

After almost 13 years, we feel entitled to call this jewel of a village our second home and our twice a year "homecomings" would not be complete without heading straightaway to this, one of our most favorite family run osterias of all we have visited in Italy. And being self proclaimed "foodies", we have visited literally hundreds! So after our... More

I won't say anything negative about the food because our pasta dishes were delicious. However, I must say that for the portions served, prices are a bit high (for a simple osteria).

Panicale is a great little town to visit and this restaurant is right on the main square. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside. The staff was a bit slow to welcome us but after that the service was fine. We selected a special bottle of wine from their extensive wine list. The appetizer of warm pecorino cheese... More

I stopped for a bowl of soup on a rainy cold day. The legume soup suggested by the owner wasn't on the menu. It was wonderful, rich and tasty with toasted bits of bread and olive oil. Delicious. But so was the price. I have been eating good soup in the region for some time now, so I expected a... More

Food very good, quite expensive but very nice. We had to eat inside as it was cooler in September which was very quiet and quite small.
