Great position, poor service

This restaurant has a fabulous terrace overlooking the lake but the service is poor and food very mediocre. If you are happy just to enjoy the view and pay for the setting rather than the food or service, then go for it. We waited ages for our food despite only two other tables occupied.

If you'll visit in Isola Bella, please have a great lunch in Ristorante Elvezia! There is a delicious food (e.g. ask the plate of cheese with onion jam from Ruben's brother), great house wine (Rubbiano grape)a and excellent service! Ruben's brother is great! In addition, the other waitresses! Location is perfect, atmosphere is great and very friendly! We can highly... More

Elvezia Restaurant was a great find. They have some great seats with views of the lake. This is a great place to sit back eat, and enjoy the view. Atmosphere is real relax, and casual. The food was of a high quality, and I really enjoyed my meal. The seafood was fresh, and they had done some creative work with... More

These islands are so full of tourist stuff and crowded eating places. This was a bit of an oasis with a view of the water. We had a lunch of smoked trout and salads, an unusual club sandwich and melon and prosecute. A wonderful bottle of Pinot Grigio at a great price.

Not seen the bad reviews before, we had lunch here (salades). The salade nicoise was really delicious. The service very friendly. Even the cook asked our opinion. Also the dishes of other guest looked delicious. So I can only recomment this restaurant

We ordered trout. We received a small filet of fish they described as salmon. It wasn't! 10 minutes later (after reminders) my veg arrived. 10 minutes later again (after several reminders and complaints) my chips arrived. I only ate the food because I was hungry and we had no time to find a proper restaurant before returning to the relative... More

We had lunch at this lovely island and received good service and had a nice table looking over Lake Maggiore. The pizza and pasta sage Ravioli was Ok but we have had much better. The white wine was expensive and the Chardonnay we wanted was out of stock. Nice atmosphere but overall not one of the highlights of our restaurant... More

A great find on the island of Isola Bella .... turn right just after leaving the ferry. A lovely restaurant on several floors with a delightful open terrace at the top overlooking the market and lake. Good for lunch, lots of delicious homemade pasta dishes at very reasonable prices.

15 euros for a tiny piece of frozen fish without anything else on the plate. Very rude waiters. Much better restaurants further from the por.
