We have a home in Paciano and our first time visiting Il Casale was on a spectacular August night . The view on the back patio is just beautiful and looks out over the Lake, Paciano and the hills. The wine was great, the service by the owner and his family was great and hospitable. I love how my meager Italian and the appreciation to try makes them smile. The restaurant is in their home and the whole family works their. The wife does the cooking and she seems to be a very sweet women. First things first the wine was very good and very economical. My kids loved the pizza and I loved the pesto and pasta dish that I got. Also the grilled red peppers that i ordered for the end of the meal was very good. Overall the experience was a pleasure and you need to try if you are out on a nice night with the sun setting.. we will be back this year in a couple of weeks and look forward to the evening.
