I payed too much to sit indoors. Being a solo dinner means they would not allow me to sit in one of their 2 person table overlooking the lake. Food delicious. Make sure you sit by their balcony.

We took a day trip to Castel Gandolfo from Rome and stopped here for lunch. The views are amazing if you manage to get a seat at one of the tables on the balcony overlooking the lake. Even if you're unlucky and have to settle...More
