- The local village of Pietralunga is less than 2 kilometres away and has a good choice of places to eat. In addition to a country house hotel, there's a choice of restaurants including a pizzeria which also does take away and there are several bars which do lighter snacks and Panini.
- Guests can normally dine in at Banditelle by arrangement with Maria, Banditelle's housekeeper. Maria will cook a typical meal at the villa. In addition, Maria sets the table (outside on barmy evenings), serves at the table and clears away. Guests need only relax and enjoy . Should you wish to dine in please negotiate directly with Maria (Italian speaking) during your stay.
