Fabulous Food, Went Back Three Times

Normally, I try to avoid eating at my hotel as the food is typically mediocre at best. However, we gave this hotel's restaurant a try our first day in Perugia for lunch because we were tired and I was blown away by the food.

Very nice location with amazing view. But...food was not all good: starters (eggplants and eggs) were good, as well as the truffle pasta. But the tagliata was too full of nerves and fat parts. The waiter wasn't very friendly as well.

Started our Umbria visit by eating at our hotel. Very good food and good service. Large wine list with excellent selections. My steak was very good and my wife's trout was even better. Well done!

While staying at the castle we didn't see any reason to eat anywhere else so we ate here both nights of our stay. Everything we had was really delicious! Presentation did not lack and you can not beat the views. Our biggest complaint was the staff seemed overwhelmed due to lack of servers. Aside from that hiccup, compliments to the... More

The view is the reason to come, and the ambiance of the castle. It's all lovely. The food was not amazing, but it was good. The staff are very nice. If you're a real foodie with high expectations, you should probably go elsewhere, but if you are happy with a good meal, then I would recommend this lovely spot.

Dear GOfifer, we are glad to know that you enjoyed the unique atmosphere of the Castle and the kindness of our staff. Concerning the food, we try every day to meet the expectations of our guests, trying to be “exceptional” but at the same time “simple”, with all our genuine products and our plates of the tradition of Umbria.

We were staying at Castello di Monterone for our 15th Wedding anniversary and one of the reasons we stayed there was so that we could try Il Gradale for our special dinner that night. We were not disappointed! What a feast we had - all beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and all served with a friendly manner & a smile, we... More

Surprisingly good restaurant right in the hotel. Sundays seem to be an "off" day (chef probably not in that day), but even then it was quite good.

We took one of the degustazione and we were treated to a delicious and very filling dinner of different courses. Each plate was abundant and well-presented. I loved the simplest of them all, the spaghetti al pomodoro! The tomatoes used are of excellent quality.

il Gradale is the second restaurant on the beautiful site of the Castello di Monterone. The first is the one Michelin star restaurant Il Postale (warmly recommended). The menu of Il Gradale offers a nice range of different food and a pleasantly complete wine list (although the wine ordered was not available). The well presented food is however served by... More
