“Café on the Piazza”
Review of Bar Gallo

Ranked #3 of 13 Restaurants in Panicale
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Italian

Restaurant details
Dining options: After-hours
Description: The original Panicale bar, frequented by a colourful mix of agricultural workers, a few local artists and most US, British and German expats who come to meet their friends and talk to the locals and wouldn’t drink anywhere else. Bar Gallo, run by Aldo and Daniela Gallo, is modern and clean inside, with a large room at the back with a view of Lake Trasimeno for when the weather turns inclement. In summer people are outside at the tables in the picturesque old square. Here you can eat simple meals for when the formal Italian dining experience is too much: focaccia with ham or cheese, salads, single pasta dishes, bruschette, panini. Or you can have a drink or an ice cream and just talk. The staff are welcoming and mostly speak English.

Bar Gallo is the beating heart of village life on the Piazza in the charming hill town of Panicale. Once you stop by for a coffee, drinks, lunch or gelato you will be greeted like a regular (of which there seem to be many) when you return. There is a friendly vibe, good food, nice cocktails, and yummy gelato. Strongly recommended.

Lovely Cappuccino, relaxed setting and friendly staff. Perfect to watch the world go by in this traditional square.

We've been visiting Bar Gallo (or Aldo's as we know it) for 12 years - in all seasons and all weathers - and in all these times we've never been disappointed. Aldo and his staff are excellent and very accommodating, food is always good and the atmosphere (especially when sitting outside in the sun) can't be faulted. To state that we've been happy to continue to return to Bar Gallo, year after year for 12 years, says it all. And we'll be back in June!!

Great spot for a seat outside to people watch in the piazza. One of the best cappuccino’s we had in two weeks!

Good local bar, great range in hot choclate drinks. Open all year, main bar in Panicale for locals, holiday makers. Good range of sandwiches, great place to be on open air music nights. Well priced local wine by the litre. Children and animals no problem. 5
