I had a wonderful experience of Bracciano and this restaurant played a big part in that experience. I had a very tasty grilled fish and the most amazing speciality dessert on a warm evening looking up at the imposing and grand castle. Agnese was so attentive and helpful and when I struggled to get a taxi back to my hotel... More

This restaurant was so good that we immediately made reservations the next night. The staff is outstanding, the food excellent, the wines reasonably priced. When my husband asked if the fish was whole (which he prefers) the waitress returned a moment later with the raw fresh fish on a platter---that's service. And the lamb was so good that I didn't...

The menu was in Italian & English, but as we found out, limited from the menu given to the locals. The waitress was patient with us as we tried to decide what to get & offered suggestions. We started with the anti-pasta Rustico which was good, but for two scoops of some mystery white goop with some cold cuts &... More

This was the second time at this charming restaurant. Signora and her son went out of their way to assist me with a meal due to hideous dietary restrictions. They did it - a 3-course meal which was to die for!! Thoroughly wonderful trattoria.

Visited the restaurant with my husband and 7 months old son for lunch during a visit to Bracciano. The restaurant is located close to the castle and at a big parking lot, so convenient when arriving by car. 1st course: spaghetti vongole for both of us, it was so delicious! 2nd course: fried prawns and grilled seafood mix. Both very... More

We came across this restaurant during our visit to the castle. The owners are extremely friendly and welcoming. We had great food starting with local appetizers and then pasta, fish and finally glorious home made dessert. Great house wine to complete a perfect meal on an outdoor patio under the spectacular Castello Odescalchi. Highly recommended!!!

We came upon this restaurant on our way to visit the castle. It's a lovely location at the foot of the castle. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming from the start. An experience we'd not received anywhere else during our two weeks in the region. The food was by far the tastiest we'd had too, and we'd eaten out... More

The location of the restaurant is really great and the staff is very friendly. The food is okay, nothing too fancy (the pasta at least!). Btw: you'll pay for the bread and the Italian lady will trick you into spending more money (;

Started our journey in Bracciano here. Welcome home! The place is warm and inviting with both outside and indoor seating. The owner (or his wife?) personally walks around to tables - the food & service of your very own nonna! :) We are twice during our stay and highly recommend any pasta dish - perfect for a great meal!
