Came here for an evening meal after it was recommended by a local. What a great find, wonderful place that you can find only if you hear about it. It's outside the walls and not touristic at all with good prices and very tasty authentic Italian food, lovely hostess and chef. We had a mix of antipasti cured meat for... More

Our first night in Castiglione, and a quick look on tripadvisor found Le Scalette. Good solid, uncomplicated and tasty Italian cooking, with a good selection of wines. My simple pork ribs with roast potatoes were cooked perfectly. The previous reviewer who said it was expensive must've had a bang on the head. Great value.

To be fair we had a good/average meal but it was over priced. The problem is they never keep regular opening hours so you never know if they are open or not, very unreliable with average food for Castiglione.

What a great find! We decided to drive outside of Cortona for dinner and found this lovely place. Family run and very friendly. Great food - especially the wild boar dishes! Homemade pastas were the best! Very reasonable too! Setting is also great! Wished it hadn't been raining, outside seating looked wonderful!

We had a wonderful meal at Le Scalette, one of our best on our trip! Decent views of lake from outside seating. Friendly service. The tagliatelle with truffle sauce was to die for as well as a great chingale ragu. And primi for 2 with caprese salad, water, and liter of wine was like 24 Euro! Just down the steps... More

I'm a little late in writing this review - visited 3 or 4 times in June. It must be the best restaurant in Castiglione. Others can be hit and miss but this is consistently good. The food is first-class, the wine very good, and the service is friendly and efficient. You will be made to feel at home here. I... More
