Thus time we gave a large terrace overlooking the lake. Breakfast is a very large buffet which is included in the room rate. Parking... read more

A fantastic restaurant with stunning views. The food was great and the staff very friendly. The wine selection was very good and reasonable. They let us share the appetizers and the pasta course and they were both lovely one was a really very good lobster dish.

We ordered main course and dessert. The wine recommendation was spot on and most reasonable. Veal very good, albeit small portion. My wife wanted fish and ordered tempura - disaster, take it off the menu - but was replaced immediately on remark with the absolutely most amazing pasta. Tiramisu very good ! Stay with the classics !!!!

Let us start with the location. This restaurant belongs to the hotel. The rooms of the restaurant are perfect looking in a barock style. With good luck you can get a table next to the terrace facing the Lago Maggiore. It is necessary to make a reservation. Then you will get guided to your table. Soon you will get the... More

There is no question that this is a grand hotel and a grand setting for a restaurant, but grand doesn't translate to excellent without hard work by the staff. The menu was not terribly exciting, and some of the dishes not particularly well prepared. The service was mostly good, but not the uniform high level expected of a top class... More
