Just got back from Umbria where I had traveled to many cities and restaurants. This little family owed restaurant is a little gem outside of Catigline del Lago area. The food is fresh, delicious andmwellmpriced. The service is friemdly and excellent. I love the dolce offered and made here along with the pasta with beans and sausage.

Love this restaurant..eaten there many times.. The owners, Marilyn and Luigi and their family make you feel like you are family, every time I am there. The food is excellent, Umbrian style, and well priced and affordable even for larger families. And everyone speaks English..

Ok- so you want a restaurant with great local cuisine, not expensive, and american style air con in the summer--NOW YOU FOUND IT! This hidden gem with english spoken fluently has profoundly good food. It has been my hidden gem for many years and i wasn't permitted by locals to put it up on a site like this until now that the secret is out. I live nearby every summer with many internationally renowned chefs and we're all crazy for his place--best spaghetti carbonara outside of rome, oxtail vaccinara, rucala y grano salad---GO THERE-tell them bobby from panicale sent you!

We have a casa in Paciano, which is right down the road from Castiglione del Lago. We asked some locals in our town of what is a new restaurant to go to that was local.. They all said they heard that Locanda moved a couple of minutes closer from their old location in Castiglione Del Lago.. (They are now located on Via Andrea Doria 50/E). Just around the rotary near the COOP Distribution Warehouse.. (street on the side of Coop Warehouse on rotary).
We stopped in and it is such a great family atmosphere. Marco the waiter is married to the chef and owner. They spoke great English for those who need to go to somewhere local that Italians go to but want to be able to understand language. The prices are AMAZING for the quality and portions they give you.. I will post menu. We had a Pici pasta with fresh tomatoes and spicy red pepper.. Wife loved. I had Gnocchi bolognese which was a meal in itself.. I believe each pasta dish was 4 or 5 euro.. We also had a meat and chees plate with two types of bread for 4 Euro. We had the house red for 5 euro and then we had two large bottles of frizzante water and two delicious desserts.. Amazing chocolate dessert and a strawberry type of tort.. Just great service, food and costs.. A MUST TRY.. You will love the people and the food here.. Going back tonight:)
