Found this incredible restaurant on a day trip to Castel Gandolfo. We were visiting from Rome and came across this restaurant in the morning, we asked if we could sit on their terrace and have a drink. The staff opened up the terrace for us and were so welcoming even though they hadn't really opened yet. They then offered us... More

We were treated like family in this charming restaurant where we had the best food of our vacation, or perhaps the finest food we've ever eaten. From the complimentary aperitif to the after dinner cordial, the homemade pasta, exquisite vegetables and main course, all prepared to perfection, there is nothing more you could expect from a restaurant. Prices are reasonable,... More

I was visiting with business associates from the international yachting industry and we all agreed this was the most beautiful experience we had in Italy. The service was incredibly good and the food was really wonderful. One of the waiters showed us through their extensive wine cellars - just fantastic.

Ristorante Pagnanelli has been a family business for over a hundred years. Situated in the Pope's summer residence town (though Pope Francis has shunned his summer residence), it is built into the hillside overlooking the lake. A beautiful view and that is just the starter. Food is fresh and local, but their pride and joy is their wine cellar! Deep... More

Good food and service with some sensible wines recommended from a vast choice. It is steeped in history and a lot of care and attention goes into the food. We were treated to a tour of the cellars which is a must see. an amazing collection of wine and wine associated objects.

I took my girlfriend here for her 21st birthday back in May of 2016 and we had the most unreal meal. Everything was perfect from the views to the food and the service. We were so impressed with the whole experience and stayed there for a good 2-3 hours taking everything in. At the end of the meal we were... More

The worst food you can eat in the whole area ,starters and main courses very bad cooked and also they'll make you wait years for it. Yeah, the view is quite nice,but almost every place there has one. So it's really something to avoid if you're not looking for a stomachache !

A magical place, where to enjoy an all unique experience, whether gastronomy-wise or aesthetically, not to mention position, rigorous tradition, beauty...! All senses are deeply involved, nothing is forgotten. Food is various and well-prepared, raw materials fresh and high-quality, be it fish or meats, pasta or vegetables. One of those places where, to date, quality has not been sacrificed to... More
