We ate here several times during our recent stay in Castiglione & on each occasion this osteria served high quality food at very modest prices. If you are a wine lover then they carry somewhere in the order of 120 different types of wine - unbelievable given the size of the establishment.
The food is typical Umbrian quisine with heavy emphasis on game (venison, wild boar & pheasant) etc but they do some excellent fish dishes as well.
We were greeted with smiles on arrival & handshakes on leaving.
I recommend this Osteria to anyone

After 2 planes , 2 trains and a car ride, I arrived at the wonderful Osteria Le Scalette in Castiglione Del Lago. I was with a group of 12 and we dined outside on the lovely terrace while Roberto , his wife and of course mama Anna prepared our dinner. We started with wine and soon got our fill of venison,boar,pasta and fabulous desserts....how we had room I don't know!!! The hospitality from Roberto and his family was a great beginning to my Italy vacation. Later on I also got to taste Roberto's fish specialties!!! YUM!! Please stop in and visit Roberto and his family while in Castiglione Del Lago..you will not be disappointed!!!!

I really enjoyed their wine selection and the numerous dishes that were made with Truffles.. Love truffles:).. The service was good but not spectacular. I will definitely go back and eat there again!

We tried La Scallette while staying in Castiglione Del Lago based on Trip Advisor recommendations. While the food was good - not anywhere near the Mona Lissa in the same town, it would have been a nice experience except for the waiter who, unlike all staff we encountered in Italy, was not warm and seemed to be a bit mean to us for sharing dishes. No other restaurant in Italy made us feel bad for sharing. It's amazing how treatment can change one's perspective...

We reeally liked this intimate erstaurant. The food was delicious, the price reasonable and the owner extremely extremely nice. We kept a lovely memory of our lunch in July 2011, we will definitely go again.
