There appeared to be a shortage of staff. There was only one waitress covering all tables and she did not receive much support from the gentleman I believed to be the manager who spent the night behind the bar pouring and drinking shots.

The food when it arrived was nice but the poor waitress was having to do everything. Serve food and get drinks from the barman. It would definitely improve the experience if more staff were employed

After a long delayed trip from England we went 'off piste' from our usual restaurants in the Montefalco area. We had eaten here several years ago with some critical restaurant owners.
Today was just perfect - a warm welcome from a biting wind into a cosy room. Everyone was glowing with their lunch and red wine and we need to get into that space. We were tired.
We ordered wine of the house and were treated with the very well respected Tabarrini Cantina's IGT. What a super match for a platter of local meats and cheese. This was promptly followed by bowls of steaming strangozzi ( the traditional local Umbrian pasta, like coarse textured tagliatelle) with Tartuffo. We were aglow and fully satisfied. What a treat to be well looked after by friendly staff and to eat satisfying food that was so delicious. Beats the wind and mellows with the sun.

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 our party within the blink of an eye.
Our host recommended a bottle of Montefalco wine, naturally, and it, too, was superb.
It was a great meal in a delightful setting provided by lovely people- as I say, a real gem.

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 energy to visit this beautiful town, and a good reason to go back there.
