Try the Sicilian menu

This restaurant is slightly off the main roads, but it's easy to find. From the outside, the restaurant looks small, but it's huge. We opted for the Sicilian menu for 32€.

I had high expectations because they told us that this restaurant would service us real good Italian food for a reasonable price. It was Italian but not refined. Just food, nothing more.

I was soooooo full at the end of this dinner because i just couldn't pass any dish, plus tiramisu ;) The food was very very good, but i have to warn you, their dishes are soooo big, that every dish you order you can share it between 2 or 3 persons, especially if you have kids, don't order a pizza...

We were recommended this place by our hotel staff (an Italian man from Milan). He said the seafood was amazing. Based on this advice, my partner and I popped by to try for a table without reservations. We felt lucky to get seated given the restaurant was packed (mostly locals...well at least they were Italian-speaking). It is located on a... More

Il Carrettiere is a restaurant which is close to the lake but not right at the waterfront, which in my opinion makes the whole place more quite and might be also cheaper. Service was good. They did accomodate all our vegetarian request which was a plus. In addition their deep fried and grilled vegetables were to die for.. so delicious.... More
