We were looking for something other than pasta while vacationing two weeks in Umbria and this restaurant caught our attention. Although difficult to find from our GPS instructions, it is located right on SR71 - the main road leading out of Castiglione del Lago going toward the autostrata. The area is called "Badiaccia." We were greeted by the lovely owner, Elisa, who with her husband owns and runs the restaurant. We were served delicious homemade rolls with a selection of three olive oils. One was so impressive we bought a bottle to bring home! Our lunch was well prepared and fresh. My lunch was red prawns served over large, flavorful ravioli. My husband enjoyed a seafood medley of red prawns, scampi, and gnocchi. Although full from our delicious lunch, we were served a complimentary dessert of homemade cookies, Italian style. Elisa had the time to talk extensively to us as we were having a very late lunch. The service, cleanliness, freshness, and overall experience was memorable! We definitely recommend this restaurant.
