This restaurant is off the beaten track and had good reviews. I am sorry to say that although the food was quite good the service was about the worst I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. The waitress was pushy, racist, sexist and quite frankly rude. For example: nowhere else in the area did we have any problem asking... More

To do this place justice but make people aware of the pitfalls is difficult. We were a party of 9 non-Italian speaking Brits. They had a lovely waitress who's English was very good. You have to order from the list of food, not the pictures. Even if you find the pictures listed - you won't necessarily get that food. For... More

Despite the reasonably good food, we felt tricked over the menu. We hoped for a better evening - disappointed at large.

Nice place to eat with table on a verandah overlooking the lake at a distance and other fantastic views. Quite a difficult road to navigate in the dark on return to Paciano, but having travelled there in daylight it was easier. If you need pizza you have to ask before you arrive, Food is reasonable but nothing stood out as... More

Last week we decided to dine here based on some TA reviews I read. So glad we did. First of all the view of the countryside and the Trasimeno Lake...just outstanding. Second, but most importantly, the food .... Tasty, well presented, a wide enough menu to please everyone. If you want pizza make sure you mention it when you call... More

We ate lunch here twice. On our first visit our server was so bubbly and helpful we just had to come back, and of course the food was very good, locallly sourced, and met our expectations. You will need a GPS/Sat Nav to get here.

Very nice selection of good honest 'fresh home cooked food' Panoramic views from the terrace with excellent service from people who care! I live in Cortona which is a 45 minute drive. But I would look forward to driving here again. It was that good !!

My traveling companions (my wife and a couple) were set to find some new eatery on the lakeshore just miles ahead. Being the driver - and hence "the captain" of our ship - I decided otherwise as we passed the last turn-off for Il Casale. A u-turn and a couple of kms of bumpy roads later, we surprised Giuseppina and... More

Take your GPS when looking for this restaurant! However persevere because it is WELL worth eating here. Views to die for sitting on the terrace overlooking Lago Trasimeno whilst eating excellent down to earth Italian food. It was our first visit, but my husband & I will most definitely be back. We had cinghiale alla cacciatore (very succulent) with local... More
