The menu is extensive and the food is well cooked and very tasty. The wine list is comprehensive and offers some local wines at very good prices.

Love this place. Good food , friendly staff, good ambiance. Well priced. From meat to fish to best pizzas. Family groups welcome. But you need to book before hand as it gets very busy. Also loved by the locals.

Stopped in after recommendations from people staying near us. Good range of food at reasonable prices. Lots of space and didn’t feel cramped.

Had heard good things about this place but the food just wasn’t up to scratch. The mixed seafood starter was bland and uninspired followed by a seafood pasta that was equally under seasoned and cold. It was all a bit mediocre.

Went there 3 times. Always very busy and staff rushing around. Food is good but due to staff rushing around seemed less attentive and they were just going through the motions of feeding people. The coperti or cover charge which I think pays for the...More

Yes they do. The original restaurant (on the road into Castiglione has long gone), now replaced with a magnificent restaurant (you have to see it to believe it) on the road out of Castiglione to Magione/Panicorola. Food... More
