The setting inside in winter with the fireplace or summer outside on the balcony overlooking the lake, is magnificent, the hospitality is genuine and warm and the food is world class.

This is a family-owned restaurant that has been in business since the latter part of the 1800s and has a stunning location overlooking Lake Albano. And the food is excellent. The staff is very friendly. If you haven't already seen it and their workload permits they are likely to ask you if you would like to tour their wine cellar.... More

At the end of the uphill walk, you will see a pink beautiful place and that's the one. For antipasti, I ordered a cod fish with cauliflower sauce and swordfish rolls with pecorino cheese,... More

Started with a wine tasting and pairings followed by lunch. Had Bresale and a beef filet with Pocono mushrooms which are in season now. Finished with a tiramisu. The view of the lake... More

The scenery and atmosphere is incredible - indoors and on the terrace overlooking lake Albano. Menu has great variety prepared with great taste and imagination. All ingredients are fresh and excellent quality. The... More

If you decide to dine here ... sit on the balcony. The view of the lake is spectacular! The owner and one of his 4 sons run the place with great hospitality ... a starter beverage ... a complex menu ... followed by a complimentary liquorish shooter! Unfortunately, my medium filet was served raw ... sent back and it returned... More
