Average food with excellent lake view

We choose this restaurant because was the only in Iseo that was open after 2.30p.m but the surprise was that they continued to cook dishes and not only pizza.

The food we had was OK but nothing special - my wife didn't get any hand wipes for her large prawn dish and they never appeared when asked for. The bill also included the... More

This restaurant faces the lake but on a busy corner. I had the spaghetti vongole, which was in a thick tomato sauce not good. My wife had the fillet of fish which was fried in batter very thin and overcooked. The house wine was also very acidy. Would not recommend.
