This place goes to the next level, and they are good at it. If you love raw meat, this is the place to visit, you wont be disapointed. Thx for a great experience. We will come back.

We were tired and had a reservation outside of the walls of Castiglione Del Lago..We decided just to walk in and grab dinner here.. WHAT A MISTAKE!
I have lived in Umbria and have been coming to this area for a long time. I usually eat in Panicale, Citta Della Pieve or if in the area Cortona.. I know all the restaurants and never have bad meals.
1. We walk in and the head waiter/owner? Was just a snarky and unfriendly person. We waited literally 20 minutes to get a drink or a menu. Mind you this restaurants sits about 12 people and you can fit in a large washroom.
2. The portions for pasta was something you would see in a hipster/yuppie restaurant.. All style and no substance.
3. The whole vibe of the place was a just negative and trying to be some nuovo type of LA type style restaurant..NOT a fit in small town Umbria.
4. Then we waited 45 minutes in between our pasta and my steak...No refills, no ask for anything or any need for more wine from the waiter.. Once again he is only 15 feet from us.
5. I FINALLY got the steak which i asked for medium..It came to me as raw as raw could be. I don't mind under cooked mind you but it was cold.
Once again, he doesn't ask how everything is, what are thoughts were, why we didnt eat the steak,etc.. Didn't ask if we wanted coffee, dolce,etc..
Just GOD awful.. Stay away unless you want some bad service, bad attitude and bad vibes.. And pay for nothing on your plate but some kind of artistic impressions.

PortaSenese is the name of one of the main Gates to the town. of Castiglione del Lago. This is a steak restaurant - all about meat - we each had a steak and they were good too - good meat and perfectly cooked. We started with some bean soup - the fagiolina beans, which are renown in this area. We had an excellent meal - the waiter was lovely and looked after us well. We would certainly recommend coming here.

The food is original and delicious! A wonderful atmosphere in a beautiful town. This restaurant is a prized jewel beneath the main arch and only a few feet away from a breath-taking view.
