If you eat here, you must go out on the terrace and look out over Lago Trasimeno. It's a great backdrop to what was a lovely meal. Very friendly, helpful staff and really nice food, well prepared and presented. Definitely recommended.

The delicious food has a home-cooked quality while managing sophistication at the same time. Host Maurizio is delightful - his wife cooks - and knows his food and wine. The excellent wine list contains some little-known very local wines that do not disappoint. Highly recommended.

We were recommended this restaurant by an Italian friend. We had a lovely meal with a view over the lake. The food was tasty and well presented. The prices were good. The only downside was the owner spent a lot of time talking with customers at another table and didn't bother with anyone else. Compliments to the cooks.

What a little gem! We stopped on spec for lunch on one of those steamingly hot June days. We were given a table outside overlooking Lake Trasimeno. Service was speedy without being pressing by staff who really know their food. The lasagne was probably the best I have ever had. Generously portioned, fresh and moist. Absolutely delicious. There is a... More

Very well decorated restaurant with high ceilings and possibility of eating outdoor in the main square. We were 4 of us and we all 4 tried different dishes accompanied by local Umbrian Wine. It was very good. The service was excellent and the owner speaks very good english. Their deserts are very good too.

Beautiful setting in the historic walled center of Castiglione del Lago with an extensive menu. An easy walk from the gate, this place is excellent quality. The owner, Maurizio, can make excellent suggestions in fluent English should you desire. We had a lovely three course meal, wine, and water for about 100€ for two. Outdoor seating is on a lovely...

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
