This place is a couple of minutes walk from our hotel. We didn't have a reservation and even though it was pretty busy, they accommodated us. The food was really good and felt just like a home cooked meal. We both had the chicken in a delicious tomato sauce with onions.

Had lunch here with my husband recently and we both enjoyed our pizza and pasta options. Service was fine. Nice views over the road towards the lake and not bad prices.

Situated by the roadside facing the lake - lovely view. Service was very quick served by pleasant, efficient staff who spoke good English. We shared a pizza - very good and very reasonably priced, as was the beer and glass of wine. Everyone in our group enjoyed their lunch.

The food was very good. It is a bit crowded sitting outside, but the weather was great so did it anyway. It is just a short walk from La Darsena near the boat dock.

Similar to the Red and White wine bar next door, this place offered good, simple Italian food. We had pizza, lasagne and pasta here, all of which were very good. Nice relaxed casual dining atmosphere across the road from the lake.

The four of us all ordered some different and each meal was well prepared. It is open a little earlier than some of the other nearby restaurants.

We stopped for an early evening meal after a long day of travel. Not another soul eating save us. The waiter was charming and the food very good. We ate outside and since it is right on the road, there is the noise of traffic, but it is also lakefront and thee view was nice. Before pasta we had some... More
