This place is a real find, an assuming treasure of a restaurant located by a corner of the central piazza in Castiglione Del Lago. It offers that unheard of (for an Italian) offering of shellfish in the middle of Umbria, the spaghetti al vongole are out of this world and the cozze (mussels) are as good if not better than...

Just had lunch at this little restaurant in a very beautiful Piazza. I was attracted by the sound of the pasta with mint and saffron and I was not disappointed. I asked for Parmesan and the lady, I assume the chef looked at me disparagingly as if why would I want it so I said ok don't worry and she... More

I've been eating in Italy much better than here. Lasagna was almost without meat and also pasta with ragu was poor. Service ok, but nothing special.

Amazing, local fish served here in so many dishes. We have chosen a local soup & ravioli as mains. Please consider it; both were cooked perfectly and a very large portion too. Great service from staff, throughout the meal. Wine, as expected, local and lovely. Don't forget the desserts, they didn't disappoint at all.

After two weeks in Umbria, we were delighted to stumble across this restaurant. Our meal was without any doubt the best we've had out - fantastic antipasti, local fish and pastas. Nice location too, sitting outside in the square. Highly recommended.

This unassuming restaurant is on the square across from the beautiful church. We were just looking for a small lunch to tide us over on a quick visit to the town. We had mussels in a tomato sauce that were absolutely beautiful! Also the prosciutto and melon...very fresh perfect flavour. Washed down with a beer and white wine. A delightful... More

First of all - the restaurant is nice. Right in the middle of main square and with a great view of it. And the food is okej. Tasteful and well prepared. But that's it... It doesn't stand out in the proportion that is given here on trip advisor. And I tell you why, When I go to a high ranked... More

The resataurant is at the northeast corner the piazza in the historic center of Castiglione del Lago. We chose a table outside. My daughter had been sampling Margherita Pizzas all up and down Italy.

We stopped here after a long day with our tired, hungry children and this place did not disappoint. It's a little gem with terrific food, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. We would highly recommend if you are in the area.
