“Good Value Lunch, popular with locals”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

On a day visit to Civita Castellana we found this restaurant to be particularly good value for a family lunch. The dishes were relatively inexpensive, good quality, and (always a good sign in Italy) the restaurant quickly filled up with locals, despite it being midweek.

“WHAT IS THAT!!!!!”
Reviewed 12 April 2013 via mobile

Hell kitchen, not value for money... I really dislike the service, I really suggest to stay away from this place if you are looking for a cozy place to stay combined with tradition out of Rome. Suggestion on trip advisor far away from the reality.

“Kitsch and delicious”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

I have now eaten at Mignolo three times since I've relocated to Civita Castellana last October, and after much deliberation I have decided to write a review on it. The restaurant doesn't have the best reputation in town, due to the rundown dining area and oily food, but it appears to be one of those restaurants that even the naysayers go to once in a while to indulge in one guilty pleasure or another. The first time I ate at Mignolo, I was a little too critical. Italian food is painfully simple, and even the most basic mistake in portion or seasoning is less forgiving than in other cuisines. However, after trying other food in Civita, I have realized that Mignolo is probably the tastiest- forgetting fat content, atmosphere, etc. The price is also extremely low and service is quite exact. In fact, the manager/waiter at the restaurant speaks sufficient English, which is a necessity since this restaurant does not have menus. This absence, along with the soapy, bland bread, are the major downfalls of Mignolo. Otherwise, I cannot honestly criticize the place too much. Try the cannelloni, mixed meat, or even roasted potatoes/ chicory!

“One of the best meals during our Italian vacation”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

We initially stopped in Civita Castellana just to find a bancomat (ATM) and decided we were hungry and asked a local woman about nearby restaurant suggestions. Ristorante Mignolo was a trattoria she suggested. This was one of our best meals in Italy. The service was friendly and warm. The atmosphere is rustic and homelike. There was no written menu - the server explained menu options. My husband and I shared a few pasta dishes (pasticcio ai carciofi and a pasta with meat sauce) and grilled vegetables. For dessert, we had a heavenly pistachio chocolate cake. Great house wine... Recommended this place to Italian friends and will hope to return one day.
