We returned to Castelmezzano after a year and one of the reasons was to enjoy dining in Trattoria Al Vecchio Carpone. We were not disappointed. The chef was again eager to please and Incredible starters proved to be enough. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

They don't have a menu but serve a delicious local style multicourse menu. I had my menu altered because of medical issues and that was no problem for them. Very good and nice service! Really enjoyed the food and the relaxed atmosphere! Try it!

Yes this is a happening place, with wonderful service and a great location. The menu is indeed the person with choices of 2 or 3 courses. We had the antipasto, which could feed twice as many folks and had some wonderful ricotta and onion elements...More
