Hotel Restaurant

Dine in Dolium, the hotel’s restaurant, or on warm evenings, on the terrace. The menus combine the best of Tuscan and Umbrian cuisine (think lasagne with pecorino and truffles) accompanied by superb advice from the extremely knowledgeable sommelier. The bar serves drinks and light snacks throughout the day.
Other Restaurant Nearby
Right in the historic center pf Panicale, Lillo Tatini is an intimate and charming restaurant with a beautiful terrace with a view.

The menu only feature local produce and recipes from fish from the lake to land snails and the braised beans of lake Trasimeno. A tasting menu is available at an affordable price.


Perugia is the nearest main town (30km) but do stop by the local village of Panicale. The hotel is perfectly placed for visiting many of Umbria’s hilltop towns – Assisi, Pienza and, to the south, Orvieto – and if you feel like venturing a little further afield, the Roman amphitheatre in Gubbio and the well-conserved Roman gates in traffic-free Spello are well worth a visit.

Lake Trasimeno is also around 25km away, a good alternative to the beach in this landlocked region.
