It was a wonderful Autumn day in Montefalco- bright blue sky, fluffy white clouds, a fresh breeze and the streets were empty. It was also a wonderful lunch at Castel Petroso. Our welcome was so warm, the food- cooked by our two hosts' mum- was delicious, freshly prepared using local, seasonal produce and gluten free pasta provided for one of... More

After wating for 15 minutes the waiter told us that they could not serve us. It was the wine festival of the city and they couldn't handle To serve four tables. Not professional at all. They should close the doors as they can' t operate their business. Is It a business?

When visiting Montefalco with lunch time over, we just dropped to any restaurant on the way up to the main square. We have been surprised by the friendly welcome and the quality of the dishes we ordered. Even the simple salads and cold cut dishes where of highest quality. And have tasted the best ever buffalo mozzarella. We got new... More

We chose Castel Petroso on our first visit to Montefalco because of the menu and the shaded outside tables. Unfortunately, another couple was ahead of us for the last outside table and we were seated inside but close to the door. We had stopped here for a light lunch and decided to share the beef Carpaccio. The dish was light,... More

This restaurant is located along the pedestrian street that from the main medieval city's gate (Porta S. Agostino) gives access to the center of this picturesque Umbrian town (but least known of other like Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto, Orvieto, etc.). The restaurant is tastefully furnished, and gives a pleasant impression of intimacy. But what is more important is the food. Although... More

The restaurant is situated just inside the walls of Montefalco, on a hill leading to the main center. It was recommended to us by the vineyard we visited. We had the cheese plate, which was amazing, and gnocchi made with the local wine. Both were delicious. The cheese plate itself was quite substantial and delicious.

Recommended by a local as somewhere simple to eat in Montefalco, we found this small restaurant on the climb to the Piazza del Comune. Castel Petroso is a family run bar and restaurant. Not a word of English was spoken during our 2 1/2 hour lunch which made it all the more enjoyable. The food was simple and well prepared... More

This place was excellent. The staff doesn't speak a word of English, which in my opinion only enhances the experience. The food was freshly cooked, and so it took some time to arrive, but it was well worth it. The dishes are simply belissimo. Especially the baby pork. Funny story is that I ordered a Lentil soup. They didn't have... More
