Castello della Castelluccia: a fairytale just steps away from Rome


An enchanted location for candlelit dinners, pool days, and events.

Castello della Castelluccia is only a few kilometers from the center of Rome, yet it feels like you’re stepping into a fairytale. This castle near Rome, surrounded by lush greenery, was built in 1100 on the ruins of an imperial Roman villa. Over its eight centuries of history, it has belonged to various noble families.

Today, this splendid building is fully restored and boasts many different facets: it’s a restaurant, an outdoor pool, and a venue for events, perfect for weddings and corporate events.

La Locanda restaurant

From Friday to Sunday, Castello della Castelluccia welcomes guests to its restaurant, La Locanda. Whether you’re looking for a romantic dinner with your partner or a relaxing family lunch surrounded by nature, this is the perfect spot.

The cuisine is inspired by Mediterranean tradition, with a touch of creativity and innovation. Among the first courses, don’t miss the Fettuccine della Locanda, with veal stew ragù alla napoletana, and the Raviolini di magro with asparagus and parmesan. For second course, we recommend the local grilled Picanha beef with roasted potatoes and sautéed chicory.

To finish on a sweet note, the desserts at La Locanda are a highlight. Our favorites are the Sacher torte a modo mio, with orange marmalade instead of apricot, and the Zuppa di frutti rossi, served with a sprinkle of pepper, oil, and smoked salt.

On Friday and Saturday, La Locanda is open for dinner, while on Sunday it’s open for lunch. And what a lunch: Castello della Castelluccia organizes creative arts and crafts workshops for children while parents enjoy their meal. These activities run all summer starting July 7.
