I had an awesome meal. Black truffles on lard on lamb. The dessert was a nutella molten cake. The best ever in my life! I see reviews of people saying its expensive, its all relative, in the end I do feel I got what I paid for. Thats what truly matters. I mean cheap meals can be had at McDonalds... More

Have visited this impressive restaurants a regrettably few times over the years. Yesterday was a dual birthday celebration with my twin sister and family. Brilliant atmosphere, good food and child friendly. Portions are more than generous so choose carefully from the extensive menu: I went for the grilled giant prawns only: absolutely delicious. Fluent English spoken so language no problem... More

This was my first trip to castel gondolfo from Rome, which is located only 30 mins away. Its absolutely breathtaking. The views from the restaurant are stunning. This place came highly recommended and I know why. The food is exceptional and the service fantastic. Its a 4 generation family run business and the restaurant is lined with old photos of... More

Helpful director. Happy staff. Great view and food. Their wine is very nice. They have different menu depending on the season. They gave us a tour in their cellar

Here you'll pay a lot but I think it's for the view and the famous people signing the wine bottles in the cellar. I was one of five and we all tried each others dishes. I got the shark with sea asparagus. I liked it, but for the price out in the hillside... I would expect better. So go here... More

While in Rome on a day tour, our guide arranged for us to have lunch at this beautiful restaurant. We had a table on the terrace with a beautiful view of the Lake Albano and surrounding area. The food and service was amazing. It is a family run business that has existed for over 100 years. The owner and staff... More

Already been to Pagnanelli for four times, and the food always amazes me, and the hospitality, the sense of art and living from the restaurant, and above all the best cuisine that I have ever had in Lazio, and amazing wine list and wine cell. If you are a foodie and depressed by the restaurant food in Roma, and not... More

Amazing views of the lake below from Castel Gandolfo. Worth booking early to get a table on the balcony. Great food, both seafood and meat dishes, excellent quality. The prices are expensive. Very good wine list and an amazing wine cellar downstairs, which is well worth a visit.

Had a visit to the wine cellars before we went into the restaurant. Good view overlooking the lake and the food of pasta, chicken pork and buffalo was good followed by sweet and coffee. Well worth a vist

The friendly greeting overwhelms you following a short train trip from Rome Termini to Castel Gondolfo. This restaurant merits a full day visit. The spectacular view is as good as I have seen. The food is exceptional. The wine was relatively young and local, but once more an unbeivable find at a bottle shop price. I am giving this my... More
