Delicious restaurant and I didn't have to leave my hotel...or I'm sorry MY CASTLE!

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... read 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

A very positive dining experience if you go on the "seafood" nights,Tuesday and Friday I think. Meat dishes are pricey, small portions, and fair as far as flavor is concerned. The seafood special is very flavorful, excellent portions, and good value. Excellent staff and a restaurant with vista of Perugia.

My husband and I we're lucky enough to be the 1st diners in the restaurant the evening we visited. We were greeted by a very friendly, and proffessional waiter. We liked how compared to a lot of Italian eateries, the tables were spaced a good length apart from each other creating a romantic, and intimate dining experience. The music was... More
