This is my sixth year visiting in Italy. I have eaten great food but this food is my all time favorite. The presentation, atmosphere, pairing with wine was perfect. Try their pasta ' candies'. Primo piatto. Not dolce! Simply fabulous. I will return to this area just to eat here!! Thanks for a fabulous meal!

This popular local restaurant was recommended by hotel staff at Castell'Arquarto. We enjoyed house-cured salmon, duck ravioli, grilled lamb cutlets and roast vegetables ordered as a side dish. The outdoor dining area is rather close to the busy road, though traffic became quieter during the evening.

It was a very lovely dining experience, from the warm welcome of the owners, to the beautiful fields of gold with the sunset on the horizon, and the sparkling Ortrugo wine, and the assorted mouthwatering salumi, to the very light tender hand made pastas. And the grappa was the smoothest I have ever tasted. I would highly recommend this very... More

We loved our lunch at this delightful family run restaurant, quite close to Castell'Arquato. Our guide Alice had chosen this traditional ristorante for us and I can see why! The food was delicious - a starter of zucchini mousse/white truffles, the main was a succulent guinea fowl which had been slow baked (wrapped in paper and then covered in a... More

This culinary gem is located near the medieval village of Castell'Arquato. A picture is worth a thousand words so here is the pasta duo that was graciously served to me when I couldn't decide which to choose. As you can see the pasta is practically transparent...what else can one say? How about...enjoy your wonderful meal at Da Faccini?!

I had the good fortune to visit Da Faccini Restaurant today, and it was a wonderful surprise. It was described by my friend as a dime restaurant, serving good, home style food. Instead, it was a wonderful and warm family owned restaurant, serving amazingly beautiful and delicious Italian food. Not only was the service provided by Alessandro and his family... More

My wife and I who have a holiday home close by were in the area for a family wedding and the night before we decided to go for dinner in Castell Arquato. Unfortunately we could get a table any where so we decided to have a drive and literally spotted Da Faccini as we drove past and decided to give... More
