The restaurant La Locanda del Castello in San Giovanni d’Asso is a magical experience. The elegant setting is in the ancient 16th century castle, where the restaurant opens up under the wide vaulted ceiling.
Why we recommend Locanda del Castello
During the warm season the outdoor balcony and the covered terrace are inviting places for enjoying meals. Lots of care and talent went into the furnishings and decoration. The tables are large and spaced far apart allowing for privacy. At Locanda del Castello, food is cooked with flair, the menu is creative while still local and seasonal. The chef prepare special dishes using superb products from this area, such as white and black truffle, pecorino cheese, Sienese salami, local honey and saffron. The chef periodically renovates the menu with new dishes according to the seasons. You should order the delicious truffle pasta since this is the location of the celebrated annual truffle festival in November.
