This was my third visit to this restaurant, we came twice during a holiday last year too. The owner is unfailingly helpful, the food is sublime and the house red wine is nectar of the Gods! We had a group of 12 and at 2 courses each and plenty of house red to help it down we still only paid... More

A small place with special artistic works on the wall, variety of choices on the menu is good. Service is friendly.

We ate lunch on May 10. We had selected this restaurant based on past reviews indicating a view of the lake. We drove from Rome in route to Florance to enjoy the view and a great lunch. We were disappointed. No view of the lake as the terrace has been closed. The food was average and nothing special. Service was... More

We are an American couple living in the area. The Monna Lisa is under new ownership. We've been reluctant to return because we like this restaurant so much. We were afraid the new owners would make "improvements" and ruin one of the best restaurants we've been to. Our fears were unfounded. Santa Pina (she makes heavenly food) is still in... More

Loved the food here. Would recommend it without reservation. Wide menu, great wine list. The view is not great, but after the above you won't miss it.

We are an American couple who live in the area. We recently took a mini vacation in Pesaro on the Adriatic coast. We thought we would feast on great sea food and lay on the beach. Although the sea food was good, it was not up to the standards of Monna Lisa. One place (very expensive) was close. We were... More

In short: Well situated restaurant overlooking Lake Trasimeno at Castiglione del Lago, Monna Lisa once again offers good food in a beautiful location. Now situated outside during the summer/fall, the view is spectacular and the service better than average. While my grilled all meat dish (pork chop, sausage, chicken) was good (I could have done as well or better at... More

Among the many restaurants in Castiglione del Lago we selected this one for our first night. The weather was coldish, but we could still sit on the terrace with view on the lake. The restaurant has also a very large inside area. We ordered a starter of tomato and mozzarella, followed by delicious ravioli with cheese sauce flavored with truffle... More

Friendly staff, good welcome, the food was amazing - lovely locally sourced food and lots of it. Owner speaks excellent English and also knows his stuff about food and wine. Lovely views from the terrace restaurant across the lake.
