Went here last week as it was 200metres from our hotel and reccommended by the owner . We went at 7pm so we were guaranteed an outside table ( reservations reccomended)- you go in through a side street but dont let this put you off , you are led through the restaurant to the back garden which is full of flowers and a wooden begoda. It isnt crowded ( at that time on a Friday too) and the tables allow for privacy. You are given a complimentary starter (mozzarella/rocket and basil dressing) this was lovely but you are basically paying for it with the cover charge of around £3. I had a glass of sweet white wine, 75ml was around 1/4 of a glass and this was just under 4 euros which is a rip off in my opinion so we had water too . I had the sliced beef done rare which was lighly garnished with rock salt and came with creamed potatoes which were amazing. My daughter had the trout which was also cooked and seasoned well, the dessert was caramel pannecota which was ok but pricey for 5 euro . The restaurant had begun to get a little busier at 8:30 despite the waitress saying initially that all outside tables were 'reserved' yet let us move further to the outer edge as we didnt like being seated in the middle ( too hot). ( There were only 3 other couples eating at the same time as us) . I would reccomend this restaurant for the quality and setting and especialy for couples! ☺ . The staff were also q friendly- The bill was £36 which is worth it because of the quality and nice setting

Seriously good food at sensible prices. Back from the centre of Iseo off a courtyard but easy to find. Menu mainly fish based. This was proper food with good service for a reasonable price. We had 3 courses and wine for two for 70 euros. Booking essential. Think it's closed Wednesdays. The fantastic reviews of this place are spot on!

Just got back from lake iseo whilst there we checked out what trip advisors best restaurant choice was. we found out where the castello restaurant was and checked out the menu. Our first vist, yes there was 2 visits in a 6 day stay!, we found our selves in a lovely room with a pit fire sort of stove burning away it was really lovely but phew we thought we were going to roast and then they led us to our table in the garden,which was lovely as the night was quite close, it was lovely to sit there as darkness fell with a glass of wine - heaven. The food was very good we tried the pasta with fish sauce from the lake the pasta with truffle, the mixed fish starter was a favourite with my husband my favourite was the puddings the second time we went there we had one each and one to share - such piggys but hey ho we were on holiday. The shared dish was ice cream - nothing special aout ice cream you may say but .....the walnut icecream was put into the walnut shell same with fig etc and they were carefully sealed up so you couldnt see the join it was so pretty you didn't want to spoil it by eating it, well that that thought and the ice cream lasted 2 seconds!

The wine was good as well and was v reasonable 12 euros a bottle - I had the red which was good .
All in all it deserved its no 1 slot. Oh and the cost of the meal was not that much more than some of the other restaurants we had been too,

In a quiet setting in Iseo , Al Castello is very much a family resturant and away from the crowded centre...well worth searching for
