I tried several times this restaurant, once more I've found a good service, a plenty of choice of good foods, either traditional or new. The seeing is wonderful and the interior of the restaurant is very characteristic: you're truly inside a real middle age castle. The cakes are fantastic and my daughter ask everytime we come in the area to... More

This was the most local of local restaurants offering a really good taste of the best Italian cuisine. Including one evening when all we needed was Caprese and a bottle of Pecorino white wine which was quite delicious. He catered for me as a gluten intolerant without complaint and even made from scratch Aubergine Parmigiano which would normally include gluten.... More

This restaurant is in an enviable position, firstly it is in the hilltop town of Castel San Pietro, surrounded by olive trees with a view on the horizon of Farfa Abbey. There was a wide selection of antipasti including... More

Ristorante il Cortigiano is managed by a friendly family who have succeded in offering great meals at great prices. Everything is local, from the olive oil to the wine, the menu is simple but offers a a... More
