Enchanting dinner experience

I phoned to see if we could book a table for 5 that evening, in August, from Baveno. No problem! Could the boat come and get us? No problem! We were collected from the jetty and taken on the 5 minute boat trip to Isola Pescatori. From there it was a short step, though a charming backstreet to... read more

You can't beat the view overlooking Lake Maggiore but service was some of the slowest we experienced in our time in Italy. We waited for 5 minutes at the reception area until one of the waiters finally acknowledged our presence and host then came over. Seated us next to a large family with several unruly children who were a little... More

Beautiful setting right on the water. I had the trofie pasta with pesto and shrimp and my husband had the tagliatelle. We shared a delicious salada mista. I thought my pasta was the best I had on our trip to the lake district - maybe the best pesto I've ever had! Service was slow and not terribly friendly but fine... More

Many of us had a lovely evening here, kindly hosted by a business organization. Service was good and quick for a party of dozens of people. The view over Isola Madre and Pallanza across Lake Maggiore was especially pleasant after some showers clearing the haze of the morning. A simple buffet dinner was more than adequate to make our day.... More
