Wood fired pizzas, excellent lake fish and top pasta courses. I love this place, in winter it is warm and inviting and in summer it's terraces are packed with locals and tourists. The wine menu is extensive and excellent or have the house wine which is local and delicious. The pizzas are delicious and everything is terrific value for money.... More

My wife and I decided to visit Castiglione del Lago on the penultimate day of our holiday in Umbria and spotted the restaurant on our way to the castle, In particular the terrace, with a view of the lake and castle, caught my attention. However it wasn't warm enough to eat outside when we were there so we ate inside.... More

Beautiful spot in the small village of Castiglione del Lago. Terrace has a nice view of Lake Trasimeno. Service was very good as was the food. A nice bottle of Italian wine made for a perfect lunch.

Always cool in the hot weather, La Cantina staff make a real effort to fit you in even if you don't have a booking. It is wise to book in the summer, especially if you have a big group & especially in the evenings. We always enjoy their fish pasta menu and their desserts are fresh & local.

So many tourist restaurants in Italy just don't try. This one does. Well cooked food,careful attention to the sourcing of ingredients, a shady terrace with a wonderful view. Just perfect! The buffalo mozzarella was the best I have ever tasted - really creamy.

One of the better restaurants we ate in in Umbria. Good food and fine value for the money in a lovely setting: terrace overlooking the lake. We shared a copious varied antipasto, an excellent fish ravioli in a good saffron sauce; grilled carp, a dessert, coffee, half a carafe of red wine, bottle of water, coffee for 54 Euros. Good...
