Description: The pearl of the Roman castles in terms of fish is certainly the restaurant La Gardenia; based on Italian and international culinary art, its cuisine knows how to be attentive to the changing needs of the palate without losing the aromas that characterize it. In it are placed both traditional dishes both savory sfizioserie who know how to tease. The charm you buy is definitely about the wonderful location: the lively atmosphere during the day is transformed and becomes magical when, towards evening, the torches that are reflected in the lake framed by the moon that rises light in the sky. Imagine! alone or with others, in the background the lake of Castel Gandolfo, on the table a light that is reflected in the water, the background music; basil scent that comes from a plate of spaghetti. Some dishes you can enjoy at the Gardenia The sea is the master at the table, all, of course, using the best fruit that only the sea and the land can offer, seasoning them with rigorous simplicity and accompanied by an extensive selection of national and international labels. In short, the right place for your special occasion, for a party, a meeting or to celebrate your wedding, with 5 different rooms for all kinds of needs, and many types of menus to suit any occasion and ceremony. Visit our local directly online, with sections SALE, VIRTUAL TOUR and discover a preview of our MENU, customizable according to your needs.

This is the thought after place in Casel Gondolfo, where well to do local bring their family and dates. Good food and nice service in an elegant atmosphere. Not a bargain but well worth it. Definitifely worth a try. if only to see the crowd...

I have eaten here with my boyfriend and his family twice now, and have been surprised very pleasantly by the quality of the food and the service. We all had fish "antipasto" And were all very pleased with what we ordered, both times. The food is very fresh and is cooked with evident care as every detail is perfect. The only flaw, if we can call it so, is the waiting time. It's not a restaurant where I would go if I had an appointment thereafter. Except for that, the waitresses that served us were always charming and delightful. I definitely recommend it!

Beautiful restaurant with fantastic views, superb fish and friendly staff. Then the real surprise at the end - a visit to the crypt. Fabulous!

When in Rome, always remember, that if you have the possibility to get out of Centro Storico for a luncheon or a dinner, just do it. When it comes to La Gardenia, the place is great for both luncheons and dinners! However, if you have to choose, go there for a luncheon. You need to book a table well in advance, be sure in summer time to ask for a table at the terrace, overlooking Lago Albano. The view is just scenic!!! Also take the opportunity to visit the city square of Castel Gandolfo itself, with the summer residence of the Pope. Back to the restaurant. The food is just delicious, with a huge menu, both fish and meat. The staff is very friendly, professional and helpful. I have been there quite a few times, and I have never been disappointed. And remember, since you are well out of the city center, you get a lot more for your money!

Excellent food, beautiful atmosphere and view, outdoor terrace in the summer, very good, friendly service and priced accordingly.
We have been going to this restaurant for 20 yrs and in time it has only gotten better. We have celebrated many special occasions and the service has always been excellent.
