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.

My husband and I had a lovely lunch here, however our children were unimpressed with the quality of the lasagne. The service was at best leisurely, at worst very slow. After asking for the bill on five different occasions - a number of waiters more than once - we made a best guess at what we had spent and left... More

Very good regional menu with very refined plates. Very good wine list. Very good service, fast and courteous. Eating on the terrace in summer is refreshing! I recommend the antipasto umbro as entree. Easy parking outside the city walls (place in general is fantastic). Also very good value for money.

We were on a family trip and have spent the day at Lago de Trasimeno and were looking for a nice place for lunch. The Monna Lisa is located in the village overlooking the lake, it is a nice village to visit and the restaurant has a very nice veranda with a gorgeous view. The food was excellent and the... More

Last year we sat outside on the square in the lovely city of Castiglione, and now you can also sit on a terrace at the back, where you have a beautifull view over the lake. So the place is nice, but also the food, wine and service. Homemade pasta!

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.
