Quite possibly the best restaurant in a two-week trip across Italy. Food was incredible, service was friendly and enthusiastic (and had good English, not that that was uncommon). Environment is incredible; take the castle tour.

Due to the very nice and original Castle location, I do recommend a daytime visit, when you will be able to appreciate the castle, the church, the little shop and bar outdoor. CAn get lively if a cerimony celebration is scheduled for lunch or dinner....More

Description
In this enchanted surrounding waves the metal-sign of “Antica Osteria del Falco”, representing a huge and curve-shaped Soup-tureen calling to the mind images of a reinvigorating hot soup, of a sumptuously laid table, of the mother. In the Bottega (shop), a wide and suggestive space talking of quality and ties to the local territory, our guests are welcomed and enraptured by a whirlpool of scents and colours originating from a huge and well cared exposition of fruit, vegetables, salami and cheeses, wines and liquors. The three rooms of the restaurant assure a simple, but cared in every detail, reception. Terracotta floorings, wooden tables and bars, wood beam ceilings offers a feeling of familiarity, almost the impression of coming back home. In summer time it is possible to have meals served in the open-air, thanks to a small, but picturesque, inner courtyard overhung by a luxurious centenarian Wisteria as well as by a Balcony overlooking the village square. The quietness, the lights, the scents in the air during warm summer evenings make dinners served at Antica Osteria del Falco an experience for the senses of great quality and charm. The restaurant is completed by a suggestive wine-cellar, preserving various hundrends of labels of the most renowned and representative wines at local, national and international level. The cuisine at Loncanda del Falco is strictly bound to the gastronomic richness of the local tradition and owns its success to the use of high quality materials, the simplicity of the preparations as well as to the capability of responding to the wishes and preferences of our guests by constantly renewing the menus with new dishes.
