Not easy to reach, but the wine cellar visit is a must

Out of rome on the hill of castle gandolfo, this restaurants the ideal location for a fine dine in hot summertime. price is reasonable, but certainly not cheap. service good and food excellent. the cellar visit is a must! plenty of bottles ranging form the early 1900.

The view from the balcony was spectacular! We ordered pasta and seafood, all of which were very good. A wonderful and memorable experience.

The mid day weather was nice enough to allow a lunch for 6 on the terrace, looking down on the lake. The menu is exceptional in its diverse offerings of plates with truffles and the mix between meats and fish (both fresh water and marine). The service was far too hurried by Italian standards. A tagliata with pear and parmigiano... More

Beautiful view of lake Albino. The wine cellar is just one of the best in the world. The food and service is over the top. A great way to spend a lunch or dinner.

A friend of ours highly recommend this restaurant when we were in Rome. We ate outside on the balcony overlooking a beautiful lake. It was a breathtaking view and we stared at it pretty much the entire dinner!!! The Pope vacations on this lake over the summer and although I am not certain, I am pretty sure that it's in... More

Bring those you want to impress here. This is how many plants out with a wonderful view on the food that that is made of top quality ingredients and recipes that are unique. I recommend fish. Must visit the wine cellar, which is supposed to be The second largest in Italy. Indeed they have more than 2000 labels and 30,000... More

Outstanding restaurant. Family owned and operated since 1882. Get the Kobe Beef. They were kind enough to tour us in their 35K bottle wine cellar. Stop for lunch or dinner when you visit the Pontiff at his summer estate.

As there is an Australian connection with this restaurant we decided that while in Rome we should visit. A pleasant 45 minute train ride from Rome. From the moment we walked in the door we were treated like royalty. Gabrielle is the perfect host. First a tour of the wine cellar - simply a stunning experience. The restaurant first opened...

I've been a couple of times in this beautiful located restaurant upon Castel Gandolfo lake and I have mixed feeling. First time was at dinner with some colleagues of mine and we had basically a meat based meal. It has been a pleasant experience, good food, good services and good wine as well (if you go you definitely need to... More
