La Quintessa

Italian in Castel Gandolfo & Lago Albano

Standing out from the traditional trattorias on Lago Albano's shores, this restaurant–lounge bar brings a dash of urban style to the lakeside. Its cluttered-chic look sees tailor's dummies set alongside bookshelves and wine-glass chandeliers, while dishes reveal an eclectic culinary approach, featuring everything from tuna steaks to risottos and pizzas.

You can also brunch here on Sundays between 12.30pm and 3.30pm.
