“perfect for a winter Sunday meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I went there with my family on a December Sunday for lunch and it was great.
Off course we reserved in advance so we got to stay in the veranda with the beautiful view on the valley below the village.
Antipasti, primo, seconds, contorno, dolce, caffè and ammazza caffè! That's how you are supposed to do it if you really want to enjoy the earthy cuisine of the Piacenza area.
All was good, service was not invasive, the check was you would expect for the food's level and the setting.
And once you are done and ready to leave the chair, the beautiful Castell'Arquato is right there to explore and help you digest...

“Good food, awful service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

i've been there last week-end Castell'arquato is a very nice place, historical place where we wanted to find out a typical restaurant to have local food.

We get into Taverna Il Facloniere, the place is gorgeous by itself, great view, great interior design an so on... we asked for a table with view but they said there was no opportunity, so we got a table in the middle of the main room. the owner is a bit rude, not really for the customer care. The meal was good, but with lack on service and delay for the service.

Definitely Great place, average food, poor service

“Over priced and Bad service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

We recently had lunch @ this restaurant with friends and it was the worst experience, service and food we have had in Italy. We have been coming to Italy for 10 years so we are seasoned Travellers. The bread was hard and stale.The pasta was luke warm and the Tartufo was out of a jar even though the owner told us it was fresh, @ $19 a dish it should have been perfect!. Our friends ordered the duck ragu pasta but there was NO duck meat in it !!! When the mains came out mine was missing and although we waited for 5 minutes it never came. The wine was a shocker even though it was recommended. It was corked. When we pointed out that we had been charged for 4 mains and only 3 came there was a frosty "why didn't you say something"!! The setting is truly beautiful but the over priced meals and shocking service will keep us away. The following day we had an amazing meal @ a different restaurant in the same village for the same price which none of us could fault. It left us all feeling very ripped off by Taverna del Falconiere.
