Good Italian restaurant in Bregenz

Being in Bregenz for a conference, we enjoyed eating at this Italian restaurant. We took pizzas both times, quality was good! We didn't tried the other plates, but the place was full both times, indicating a quite good reputation. In addition the place is open until late, which makes a good... read more

The food is italian,... Neither very bad nor very good. The service was rather arrogant. So fir the restaurant I would not come back. However I will come back for the ice saloon that they have with the restaurant and pick up an ice to go. This is BY FAR the best ice cream in Bregenz!

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry for the service. Could it be that you feel the service arrogant, because of the language? I know english is not our strength, so I can imagine, that because of the language lack you get the feeling of arroganz. For that I'm very sorry. We would like to welcome you any... More

Had the tomato soup, spaghetti carbonara and tagliolini marinara- they were all hits! Tomato soup was rich and tasty and the pasta dishes had generous portions and were simply delicious. Even the bread was great!

We visited this restaurant on a couple of occasions during our stay. The staff are very helpful friendly and chatty. The food is generous and tasty. The desserts are huge and I would suggest going for the ice cream desserts instead of the others as they appear to be pre-packed.bought in, whereas the ice cream is home made and delicious.... More

We didn't eat in the restaurant but made an almost daily visit to the gelateria to enjoy ice-cream after days out cycling around the Bodensee. Interesting and different homemade ice-creams. Personal favourite was the tiramisu with chocolate. Really good value at only two euros for two generous scoops.

This restaurant lies in the pedestrian area of Bregenz and seems just another tourist attraction (or trap). The truth is, however, different. It offers great pasta dishes and delicious pizzas in great variety. The "Isola Bella" spaghetti (cheese, zucchini, eggplant was a good treat). But, to my opinion, when it comes to spag, it's the simple and original Italian tastes... More

Everything about this restaurant is excellent. The Pasta Bolognese is delicious. The Antipasto is so good and unique. The attached Gelato shop has so many delicious flavors. The service is excellent. The wine selections are really good and reasonably priced. While in Bregenz for a week, we ate here about three times. The mixed salad is 4.20 Euro and has... More

Being in the area over Christmas holiday, not many restaurants were open. But this was and simply walked in. Have no idea about the pizza, but we two had pasta. House made except for the spaghetti (clearly stated in the menu). With your choice of pasta, you add the topping you want. Most were standard but some were quite interesting.... More

The Gelateria at the front of the restaurant was a great value with great gelato and friendly service. The restaurant has an English menu if you ask for it (the waiter we had both times we ate there spoke only Italian and German, neither of which I am fluent in, and the first time I struggled through by speaking Spanish...
