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.

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 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. We started with a... More

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.

Had dinner there last night, it was definitely the best pizza I have had for a long time. House white wine is very reasonable price and delicious. The staff were very friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

We ate here once during our stay in Tremezzo. I had the steak which was tasty and cooked perfectly. We drank the house red wine which is really good value. The location is good for people and lake watching.
