Gabietta is the preferred restaurant by the locals. That should tell you something right there. The warm atmosphere and friendly service are part of the reason. Consistently good food, seasonal menus and local products make up the other part. If you only have time to eat one meal in Brissago, this is the spot.

The restaurant has great food, very good service and an amazing location.. This part of Brissago is really wonderful with colorful flowers, palm trees just in front of the lake...and the astonishing lake view in front... the whole scenery is just magic especially during the summer days...

We ate at this restaurant during our stay in a hotel nearby! It was a great pleasure to discover it! It is located next to the lake!The food is quite good and the staff very friendly. Even if it was Saturday evening and they were full, they found us a table for two without reservation. The great thing is to... More

Our first stop was a recommended restaurant on the water that was close to empty yet not interested in assisting our group of five. We walked to the next restaurant which was packed yet the staff smiled and moved a table on the lawn by the water for us (and others as they walked up). Service was outstanding even though... More

Great food, good service, the chicken in the basket is a must try, pizzas are also good, plenty of outside seating but it is probably better to reserve on a weekend and of course July and August.

Good Family Place with dream-location at the lake. The owner (or chef de service) is very friendly! The pizza is delicious, the pasta was quite nice as well. Don't have too high gastronomic expetations, but I had the impression that all is very fresh and well made.

We visited this restaurant principally because it was busy (usually a good sign) and had a wonderful outlook onto a lake we had come to see. The service was very much as other commenters have described, ie perfunctory and provided with the attitude of "you can see we are busy so wel'll get round to you as and when we... More

This restaurant can't fail because of its position and it's number of outdoor tables. It is extremely popular. I have eaten lunch and dinner there and it's alright. Each time they have been understaffed and the waiters seem to rush around like ants. Not a relaxing meal either visit.
