This place is must visit if in the area. Genuine, well prepared local food, served with great style. The owners, father and son make the whole experience even better.

Driving up Alacantara, we stopped at Castiglione. The TA advice was here. It didn't disappoint. A plate of antipasti, a cold beer, a cool restaurant and a convivial environment made this an oasis. Family run. Cheap. What's better?
