Pleasant and unassuming. Patronised by locals, a Ways a good sign. Went on recommendation from work colleague living locally. Good selection of dishes on the menu. Nothing over priced. Wine list to suit most tastes and budgets. Seafood linguini excellent. Went early (sevenish, midweek), got a table without booking. Only a couple of tables remaining by eight. Apparently very popular... More

We had eggplant parmigiana and a beef tartare for appetizers. My son orderd a steak and my daughter and I I ordered a risotto since in Lombardy is what they eat. In my opinion... More

Was taken here by our driver. He suggested it after a long day of travel. Just of the "center" of town. All of the food we had here was amazing, but... The Fried Asparagus was the best I have ever had. It was deep fried, but still crisp. The batter it was fried in, was similar to that of a... More

My husband and I were also recommended Castigo by the Hilton Garden. We were very pleased. The restaurant is small and has a charming atmosphere. The food was good and so was the service. The restaurant is a local favorite; we were lucky to have a table. If we are in the area again, we will return to Castigo.

The food was exceptional, reasonably priced for the Quality and service provided. Thye decor is what you would expect of an old building.

We ate here on our last night in Italy based on the recommendation from the Hilton Garden Inn. The restaurant was serving appetizers when we arrived and the marinated sun dried tomatoes were amazing. The waitresses were so friendly and we enjoyed visiting with them. The tiramisu was excellent. We were offered complimentary shots of lemon-cello after we finished eating.... More

My wife and I visited while staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. Sonja was an exceptional & friendly waitress and the food was amazing! We met with Tony, the owner, and very much enjoyed his company & stories. Very cozy establishment which apparently housed the stables of the castle years ago. After dinner, Tony drove us back to the Hilton!

During a buisiness trip as a group of eight we desended unannounced on this restaurant. The staff were excellent, attentive and couldnt be more helpful. We had a selection of starters, seafood, pasta and steaks, followed by a few desserts. All were of good local homemade quality.

We ate twice at this lovely little place, once when we began our motorcycle trip around Italy and again at the end of the trip. Very good food with lovely views of the church which looks like a castle. Staff are bright and attentive and the owner is always nearby with a friendly smile. Go and try, you won't be... More
