Booked for 8 people on a Sunday night and after reading Trip Advisor was a little apprehensive. How wrong were we, no sooner were we sat down then a glass of Prosecco arrived along with Canapés. We all found something we liked on the menu, service was prompt and the wine flowed! House wines were lovely and we sampled many... More

Very tasteful food and good service. Spaghetti with mussels and sweet tomatoes was very good. Tiramisu was also very good. We got a free limoncello after desert.

I can't really place the very positive reviews: In short, service is good, food is average, open on Mondays. They still serve the glass of prosecco, followed by an amuse, of which we doubted if it was home made. Starter, mussels in a spicy tomato sauce, was good. The steak was served well done, in stead of medium. The red... More

What a comfortable, friendly, delicious experience. The food was freshly cooked to order and was delicious and wholesome, we could not fault it. If you enjoy a malt whisky they have the best selection we have ever seen outside Scotland to enjoy after dinner. Could not fault it.

Very very poor service when it did'nt ignore you. The food was less then up to par. The service was all East Europe and very irritated from having to actually work a bit when they eventually got around to bringing the "food" to the table. Undrinkable house wine and over priced mediocre bottled whine. TOURIST TRAP! with a view (only... More

Been here a few times during business trips and the food is always good, the view of the valley below is just fantastic and the wine selection is just great. There are also a few rooms upstairs at a very reasonable price if you do not wish to stay at Palazzo Mannaioni where the wallet needs to be a little... More

Would not say the food was exquisite, but cannot say it was bad either. Service was fine, setting a bit outdated, food and wine were as one can expect in Italy. Not overwhelmingly surprised though.

We were recommended this restaurant by a shop keeper in San Gim who must have been a friend of the owner. Easy to park further along off the pavement. Great views over the valley. Service was good. Waiter went out of his way to explain dish constructions. Cannot say we were blown away with the quality of the food though.... More
