Panoramic Terraces
of Pagnanelli restaurant.

These are considered by many a dream location for a romantic meal near Rome. They are situated at Castel Gandolfo and they dominate the lake – a mirror of water in the crater of the extinct volcano. From here the view is breathtaking. The Pagnanelli garden is a romantic corner scented by an ancient Wisteria.

In this attractive garden a sophisticated lighting design enhances the beauty of the wisteria and the many Mediter-ranean plants which adorn this enchanting corner.

For many Romans, dining in this splendid setting is a way of relaxing and appreciating Pagnanelli‘s excel-lent cuisine.
The atmosphere is idyllic – candles in every corner, the lights shimmering over the lake – are all ingredients for a memorable dinner.


Even the Pope can admire the panorama of the lake. The Papal Palace is two steps from Pagnanelli, in a dominating position. From His windows the view goes as far as the sea. The morning sun rises from Monte Cavo and is reflected in the lake, and in the evening it sets in the direction of the sea.
These magical moments of Castel Gandolfo and its countryside inspired famous artists on the Grand Tour of Rome and the Roman hills in the XVIII century.
