A historic restaurant overlooking Lake Albano, next to the Papal Palace of Castel Gandolfo. The Ristorante Pagnanelli has been here since 1882, and is now on its fourth generation, still in the hospitable hands of the same family. It's been here so long, it's even on the map of the Military Geographical Institute!

The cozy atmosphere is a refined country style with magical views of the lake. Warm interior dining rooms or outdoor covered terraces are available. And the selection to please extends to the menu, that features sections for both land-lovers and seafood fans, including a part devoted to lake fish. There is something for every palate here, all carefully prepared and served with nice presentation and friendly service.
