Find the parking area (free) on Google satellite map just outside the walls, walk to the left, around and through the town gate, up the road a short distance to the charming piazza and there you'll see the Monna (2 n's?) Lisa. The fruitti di mare is the best I've had- worth a special trip. Good value.

We are an American couple who live in this area. They were closed for the month of January and we found ourselves counting the days until they reopened. The owner, Mourizio, told me he had been restoring furniture while on his time off. His love of restoration shows in the food he serves. His research into how food was prepared... More

Lovely Italian restaurant serving traditional food but will some original combinations. Good selection of wines. Room is charming and elegant yet intimate and has high ceilings. Pleasant, friendly and professional staff. A restaurant rather than a trattoria.

We called into Castiglione del Lago en route to Rome for the flight home, so were on a bit of a tight timescale but wanted lunch. Of all the restaurants in the town, this looked the best but they were quite adamant we couldn't eat before 1230. So we stood around, and were seated as soon as they would let... More

We were a party of three who stopped in for lunch, and we were delighted with the experience! Our food was very good, and we appreciated that the menu choices are more varied than most Italian restaurants. We had sea bass with a citrus sauce, pasta with seafood, and lasagna--all cooked very nicely and delicious. The warm chocolate cake with... More

We were a party of 10 people (4 adults and 6 kids) for lunch on a Thursday, late September. We got a table inside and waited for the waiters to get to us. Finally a guy who seemed to be the owner showed up and when he heard one of the kids say the word Lasagna he immediately said there... More

We sat outside and had a wonderful lunch. Food (spaghetti alle vongole for me and lasagne for my husband) was very tasty and the service was excellent. Mine was a particularly large portion size but I ate it all because it was so yummy! Very reasonably priced and well-worth visiting.

Ate here one evening during a week stay in Cast. Del Lago It was mid-.September so pretty quiet - booking not essential! It did fill up later in the evening, though. The restaurant is in a good location on the main piazza and has outside seating. It was chilly in the evening so we chose to sit inside.. The dining... More

Booking essential. Beautiful home cooked fresh food. Caprese salad and duck pici ragu were the best i've ever eaten. Portions here are larger than average and it was more than I could eat. Service was charming and the price was below average. Highly recommended

I choose a restaurant by its food quality and then location. I guess we all do that. This restaurant has both! The food is delicious, accompanied by a good house wine and it is placed in the little fountain square in Castiglione del Lago. The service was impecable and the owner was very kind with any questions we had and... More
