This is a fantastic restaurant. Small cosy setting, excellent, friendly service and divine food and wine. Set menu is a great option and the white wine recommended was very special. Perfect for a special occasion or just a treat.

My wife and I along with close friends had one of the best meals we have ever had. This is exactly what someone would want to experience in Italy when they want a special dining night. Everyone at the table had different entrees and each were amazing. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We dined in La Tortuga last night and had a truly fabulous meal. Firstly, the restaurant itself is small and cosy and decorated in a traditional style with some modern, whimsical details which were fun to spot (such a little traditional lamp shade in a Perspex box as a light). Also loved the beautiful china and mixed up glass tumblers.... More

My wife and I dined at La Tortuga last night. Even though we knew it was Michelin-starred and highly rated on TA, it was a pleasant surprise just how nice it was. We were the first people there when we were welcomed by Orietta at 7:30 PM, but the restaurant soon filled and with all tables occupied, there were 22... More

Just Had to write a review after visiting La Tortuga. The food was wonderful, the service attentive but unobtrusive, the atmosphere calm and gentle. The price was really fair for a restaurant of this standard. Definitely woth a return visit

the atmosphere, the constant rithm of the coming of food, the quality of it, the special wines, the kindness of the service: an ideal evening for a romantic dinner...

Had a very nice meal here. The menu is small and many fish dishes which you would expect given the proximity to the lake. Dishes are very rich! The foie gras was excellent and beautifully presented. The pasta was good but not so special. Service was warm and inviting but very professional. Overall very enjoyable but a little over priced... More

As good food as I’ve eaten anywhere. Pricey but sophisticated, high-end cooking of the highest standard. The tasting menu was a lovely experience.
