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

We visited this beautiful restaurant for lunch . Our tour guide John Fiore suggested we dine here. We were not disappointed. The restaurant has been in the family for four generations. Very helpful staff with the selection of food and wine. Very relaxed environment . If you want to dine on the balcony it's advisable to pre book.

Scenic, authentic local dishes and a warm and attentive staff. The wine sommelier is especially impressive. She built her career there over the past couple of decades and is an expert guide to local wines. Tastings with small plates of food are also available by appointment.

The view is sensational. My husband and I each ordered a unique starter from their extensive antipasto selection. He ordered the carpaccio of swordfish, thinly sliced and permeated with an excellent olive oil served with capers and arugula. I ventured to order the spring zucchini flower buds stuffed with ricotta cheese. Both excellent choices. There was nothing exceptional or noteworthy... More

We enjoyed a fabulous long lunch with superb views across the lake. Food is not Al la carte portions beautifully prepared and tasted decadent. Wine list to die for but not silly prices. Do make the trip

I had read about Castel Gandolfo prior to visiting Rome and also about this restaurant. I made a reservation for a nice table with a lake view for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The restaurant was not very busy but still had a nice atmosphere – with the amount of tables that are available, I’m sure it gets very busy.... More
