We visited Sor Capanna during the holiday season, and there were two traditional musicians playing zampone to set the festive mood. Food was delicious - and plentiful - and the service was excellent. I especially enjoyed the anise cookies served with our espresso after lunch.

We ended up here based on a recommendation. The service was really nice, the food was ok, the smell was rather off putting.

During our stay for 6 nights in Castel Gandolfo, this was our restaurant of choice and we took most of our meals here without any disappointment! Every meal was prepared fresh to order and accommodated our special requests including "brodo". The other restaurants we viewed prepared items in the morning and had sitting all day until served. Every pasta dish... More

The strong point of the restaurant are the tables outside on the main street of Castel Gandolfo overlooking the papal palace. I only tried the pizza, typical Roman, very thin. The level is normal and the staff is friendly. Anyway I prefer the restaurants that have the visual on the lake of Castel Gandolfo, very magic.

We came to the restaurant since we read Castel Gandolfo tourism brochure. They serve wood fired pizza and gluten free dishes. The pizza itself is very delicious and the atmosphere around is very cozy with outdoor chairs.

A wonderful meal, the bruschetta with olive pate is wonderful, airy and crisp warm toast with a thick coarsely ground spread of olives. Not salty, just right. Tagliata al radiccio was terrific as well. Service was helpful and kind with my limited Italian.

Thank Michelle F
