If you decide to dine here ... sit on the balcony. The view of the lake is spectacular! The owner and one of his 4 sons run the place with great hospitality ... a starter beverage ... a complex menu ... followed by a complimentary liquorish shooter! Unfortunately, my medium filet was served raw ... sent back and it returned... More

Amazing dining experience with lake view. We were taken here by friends who live in the area or we would have never taken the trip to the hills. I could not thank them Enough and definitely a recommended stop for any visitor. The cellar blew us away. We requested to have dessert down in the cellar and the staff accommodated... More

This classical restaurant which once was the best in Castel Gandolfo has disappointed us for its poor service and its excessive prices for wine and, to a lesser extent, food. In spite of a large staff, we had to cry for salt and pepper, then for a second bottle of wine, then for having a dish warmed-up because it had... More

This is my favorite restaurant in the world. I went there for the first time many years ago, and it never disappointed me. My impression is that love is the main service they offer you. Love for food they serve, love for the Albano Lake you can admire from their terrace, love for their job. Everything is perfect but offered... More

Perfect view on Lake-Albano, professional and humble service, very good food (home made pasta, meat, excellent home made French-Fries were served pretty fast for my inpatient daughter, ecc…). The wine/grappa cellar in which you can drink and eat as well is a huge labyrinth of an underground treasure, a must-see! Fair prices for the quality provided. Thank you for a... More

Our group of 8 had the pleasure of enjoying the breathtaking view, wonderful service and delicious meal at the lovely restaurant in the quaint town of Castel, Italy. We were so taken by the beautiful scenery from the terrace and lovely atmosphere that we wished we could have stayed longer. The owner gave us a tour of his wine cellars... More

What a great find. Pagnanelli was our final stop of our vintage car tour around Rome and had a very pleasent lunch with a large group. We entered the restaurant through its 35,000 bottles full cellar, had a pit stop within the cellar for a wine degustation and then moved on to find a magnificient view of the lake. I... More

A wine cellar tour and meal at Antico Ristorante Pagnanelli will be a highlight of any visit to Rome. Make time to do this. The views, the food, the service and the atmosphere are unforgettable. At the end of a day of Rome sightseeing and along the Appian Way, we finished at Antico Ristorante Pagnanelli. After a tour of the... More
