Loved it!

We wandered the streets of this lovely old city looking for lunch and found this place with outdoor seating near the castle. The people were wonderful and so was the food! We loved it so much we came back for dinner and brought others with us. Brava!

Most welcoming people and superb food! We were staying at the Bracciano lake for a week and visited this restaurant multiple times. The food was genuinely beautiful - fish, meat, home made pastas and specialty desserts. Each time we went we had a warm chat with Agnese and her daughter. Joie de vivre, we'll be back next year!

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 service,... 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!
