Our last lunch in Italy was the best!

We are in Bracciano for a day and a half before we head back to the U.S. and we have already eaten at Trattoria del Castello twice. We went last night and had terrific food but what really set it apart was the warm, attentive and quick service. I love Italy so very much, but when it comes to... read more

Should you find yourself in this lakeside borgo and looking for a good place to eat - this is it, especially if you like fish. Family run with friendly, efficient and quick service. Seafood is excellent. Fresh, beautifully cooked and well sized portions. Try the seafood antipasto! A little pricey but still good value. Local house wine (we had white)... More

We had a wonderful dinner here and the service and food were wonderful (and my husband is Italian and so his standards are very high). The owner and family are lovely and gave wonderful service to us and our daughters. Also the location is amazing with a view onto the square (with parking lot) but looking up at castle. In... More

This is a wonderful place to eat. It has a fabulous location adjacent to the castle wall. Food is typically Italian with a local twist and is freshly prepared (which may mean you need some patience and flexibility, but it's worth it!) and there are really good wine recommendations from Sonia.

All fresh. Divine. Home made pasta, delicious tomatoes, brillant pie as a dessert. Great little terrace by the castle wall. Great before dealing back with Fiumicino airport mess!

Our group of three was sweetly 'enticed' in and seated. We ordered their tortellini with truffle sauce but were served ravioli with a cream sauce and truffle grated on top. It was perfectly nice and when we commented on the error they offered to prepare something else but we felt they should have told us at the beginning, and not... More

We had a great time here. We arrived just before they opened, but they welcomed us in graciously... We ordered entrees for antipasti and they didn't bat a lash. They made wonderful suggestions for primi and secondi... After ordering a couple of half liters of wine, they just brought out the liters and gave us the liter price for all... More

Family owned, super nice people, honest home-made Italian food. Pasta as it should be. My cacio e pepe was tasty, simple, yet with good ingredients, as it should. My husband had scampi ravioli, also very tasty. The fried artichokes were also great.

Eccellente ristorantino nella piazza proprio davanti al castello. Ottimi i piatti, tipici e molto gustosi, pur essendo una trattoria, molto curata anche nella presentazione dei piatti. ottimi gli antipasti e primi. il secondo (Gamberi con lardo) ottimi! Dolce, buonissimo il cesttino al cioccolato! Proprietari molto simpatici e gentili. One of the best places to eat near the castle, if you... More
