The restaurant is only open in the evenings and Sunday lunchtime. We turned up on a Wednesday evening to find that the restaurant was fully booked. We were so disappointed because we had read the reviews from Tripadvisor, and the location of the restaurant in the grounds of the hilltop castle is spectacular. The lighting to the castle and its walls add to a wonderful atmosphere, so it is recommended that you book if you are in the area.

Such a lovely restaurant, based at the foot of the amazing Bianello castle, which is well worth a look around. We ate here during a special event where the castle had a Sunday nighttime opening, with re-enactors in medieval clothing, musicians and regional food tastings. The menu was short and set due to the event but incredibly good - gnocco frito, salumi and cheese board and tortelli. The terrace is delightful, with gorgeous views and the owners were very friendly and chatty (in Italian!)
You can have drinks only if you wish and which we did before having a walk and returning for dinner. Beautiful ancient woods surround the castle and connect it to the other hills which once had their own fortifications. It was too brutally hot for us to venture far but we'd love to make a day of this in future.
You can drive up a certain way to the castle and park up - there will be a bit of a climb to the venue itself. There's a great payoff though! We will definitely be back.

We started off on the right foot! They took my booking despite being open only for a large group, even before knowing it was my birthday! They let us stay in the wonderful Loggia (outdoor and far from the group as requested) where we were the only clients, yet the service was impeccable. The short menu, a guarantee for freshness of food is interesting and the food was above expectations.
