Lunch near del Castello

Good food and new friends enjoying the atmosphere of Bracciano. The staff were gracious and personable, including the owner. What more could I want?

We stopped in here for an "early" dinner during bracciano's wine and food festival and though the restaurant wasn't open yet, they said they would let us in... We ordered a bottle of wine, the saute cozze (mussels in a wine, oil, lemon, spices broth), gnocchi for my wife (she requested a red sauce of pomodoro, basil, olive oil and... More

My husband and I visited Bracciano on a day trip from Rome. We got there a little late for lunch, but Agnese (the owner) told us to sit and she would accommodate us! The food was excellent. We ordered the steamed mussels, caprese salad and fried zucchini flowers with ricotta cheese stuffed inside for antipasti! They were all very good.... More

We had lunch here with our two boys recently and it was such a treat. The food was excellent and the staff were so sweet with our boys. They don't speak much English but had English menus and, unlike in some places, we felt very welcome as tourists with toddlers. The house dessert is divine and this is a wonderful... More

We ate lunch here twice during our week in Bracciano. We enjoyed it so much the first time that we just had to come back. The service was excellent, run by a very lovely couple who were friendly and attentive to our every need. The food was all delicious, even my children who can be quite fussy eaters really enjoyed...

My mother and I dined at Trattoria del Castello after it was recommended to us by a friend in Rome. Our expectations were high and we must say the trattoria exceeded our expectations in terms of service, food, value and of course location. Set in the quiet square dominated by the Odescalchi Castle, the trattoria offers an inventive twist on... More

On our way to Cinque Terre, we stopped off at this restaurant and had a wonderful meal, which was accompanied by a wonderfully welcoming family. Adrianna and her mother were an absolute delight! Thanks so much for a beautiful experience, highly recommended, the food was Italy, incarnated!

We spent a week in a 5 star hotel in Rome, and spent one weekend in the Roman campagna. We stopped in Bracciano for lunch on our way north, and ate the best pasta of our entire 10 day vacation at the Trattoria del Castello. The welcome was warm and unpretentious. Midway through the meal, we wished we had booked... More

I moved to Bracciano 3 months ago, and have enjoyed exploring the local restaurants In my opinion "Trattoria del Castello" is the best. The food is excellent, and the menu varied The location is next to the castle, in the heart of the town, providing a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. The owners and staff could not be more welcoming and hospitable,... More
