A quick snack. Very good

Stopped here on a walk. We wanted a quick snack.. The restaurant was quiet and we chose two Bruscette of different flavours. They arrived in 10 minutes and were delicious. Good cheerful service, reasonable price good food. Perfect

We went here for dinner because we wanted some Italian food and a break from the big hotel prices. We had a lovely meal. My steak was cooked perfectly and my husbands pasta dish was great. The staff were very helpful and attentive suggesting local specialities and nice wines.

We had a couple of nice meals here in April, a quiet time of year. One evening dinner and one lunch. Staff were very good, attentive and friendly. Food was fresh and tasty, no issues with the wine either.

I did not enjoy my meal. My spaghetti carbonara was tasteless as if it he sauce came out of jar or carton. Also very loud not a place for quiet romantic dinner.

We wandered down here the first night of our visit and kept coming back. There was a ham wrapped cheese appetizer that was just delicious. The pasta dishes were excellent. We found the staff friendly and attentive.

We visited here twice during our stay. It is located very near to Grand Hotel Tremezzo and Villa Carlotta, directly across the Tremezzo ferry stop. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting, and the staff are extremely friendly. It did not feel touristy, although the staff was very tourist friendly. We had a lovely dinner here.

Six of us we were out on foot enjoying this area and had visited Villa Carlotta when we decided to look for lunch. We asked the lady at the kiosk of Villa Carlotta and she recommended this place. The eatery was full when we got there but the pleasant waiter soon had us sitting at a table overlooking the Lake.... More

The gentleman waiter was very friendly and remembered us from a couple of nights before. Although it has quite a lot of tables outside and in the arcade, although it could get busy, he let you know how long your food would take to be ready. As is in other places rolls,butter and bread sticks are provided with no charge.... More

Had a couple of light lunches here and enjoyed the meals. This is a perfect restaurant to sit alongside the lake and watch the world go by.
