We stopped at this restaurant on our way to the castle. The thing that had us choose Paolo e Francesca instead of all the other places were the menus they proposed: a very wide variety of pre-sets to satisfy every taste. We had two menu "Paolo e Francesca" (not 100% sure about the name, sorry) which included paccheri malatesta (pasta... More

really enjoyed our dinner in Gradara at this restaurant. For once during our holiday, we have decided to opt for a meat restaurant and this was a great experience. The pasta and the tagliata were so tasty and so was the gnocco fritto with culatello. Simple, but of good quality the wine list, with a great San Giovese that accompanied... More

Then the second question: do you have aperol spritz? The answer was again a No. Then we asked for kids menu and you guessed it right, it was a No, we don't have. My... More

Dear Mr./Mrs. Bay-Gastro, we're sorry to hear that you had such an unpleasant experience, but I'm afraid we're not the restaurant you are talking about. As a matter of fact, we have wine list, Aperol Spritz and we also make pasta with tomato sauce. I think you've mistaken us for another place, therefore I suggest you might double-check and delete...

Having spent a couple of hours exploring the castello we left in time for a late lunch and immediately found this delightful restaurant. We even found a table outside on the veranda where were served by a very pleasant young lady and a waiter who was a real character - slightly mad but hugely entertaining. Again we had a half...

We had a very nice lunch in this restaurant. It is within the walls of the castle, and has an excellent menu card, a lot of dishes and the food was very good as well.

My husband and I have had a few wonderful meals at this charming restaurant. The food is excellent, with plenty of choice on the menu. The setting is ideal - set within the castle walls in the medieval and magical town of Gradara. The service is very good - we were served by a charming girl who spoke excellent English... More

A perfect spot to sit outside and enjoy a meal and drink whilst watching the tourists go by. Oscar our waiter was lovely and the food was good. We took a bottle of the house red home with us. I left my camera behind and luckily Oscar found it under the table for me to collect later that day.
