Bracciano: Restorantino del Castello

Piazza Mazzini Giuseppe, 14, 00062 , Phone: 06 99804333

Reviewed by: ChrisW from England, review #2585

When: 2007

We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we went 4 times!!

Restorantino del Castello is in the piazza Mazzini overlooked by the Castle in Bracciano. It is on the right hand side as you enter the piazza, and has a pizza takeaway attached. I say this so as to distinguish it from Trattoria del Castello in the same square (which is also very good, but we need to know which restaurant we're talking about here!)

They serve a full range of dishes including meat, fish, pasta. However, their pastas were so good that we never did get to order from the Secondi.

We had already been there twice and had read that they were closed on Wednesdays (which was our last night) so we decided to visit them on Tuesday night. Three visits to the same restaurant is enough we thought. Imagine our dilemma when we walked into the square on Wednesday and they were open!! We couldn't risk an inferior last night dinner!

When we walked in we were welcomed like old friends - given complimentary glasses of asti and slivers of delicious pizza. We ordered Antipasto for the 4 of us to share (more than enough and very good). This was followed by a pasta dish for each of us (each one as good as the other, making it very difficult to make a decision), salad and the most delicious roasted slices of potatoes with olive oil, rosemary and garlic cloves. As it was our last night we upped the usual bottle of house red to a bottle and a half, and also ordered a bottle of water. We finished it all off with 2 Tiramisus and a limoncello. All this and the bill came to only 80 for 4.

Delicious food, friendly welcome and service and a great view of the Castle.
