This is a small cosy traditional restaurant. Mama in the kitchen, daughter and father taking well care of the guests. The food specially the pasta was really superb! The best I have had in a long time. The prices are not cheap but worth it.

Excellent restaurant, with food, wine and service unexpected in a little lakeside town. It is not cheap, but well worth every euro. The degustation of lake specialties is fabulous. You do need to book ahead as it is very popular.

Quite old fashioned and indoors. Lovely food. It livened up as the evening went on as more glamorous diners arrived!

This is a great little place in the charming town of Gargnano, and a nice spot to have dinner at least one night if you stay at the Villa Feltrinelli and want one more casual dinner. The local fish, persico, is the thing to have, but everything else is good, as well. Very nice people run the place. Good wine... More

Had dinner one evening whilst staying at the Villa Feltrinelli. It was a nice change from the relative formality of the hotels restaurant. Pleasant room and it clear this is a family run restaurant and all the better for it. Friendly service and started with a generous dish of scallops (four very large) and a really good pasta. The scallops... More

Not a cheap place to eat but for the quality of the food definitely worthwhile. The wine list is very good, the service is very attentive and the food was excellent. Lacks a little bit of atmosphere but this did not detract from the evening. If you are looking for a nice end of holiday treat give it a go!

This is a top drawer night out if you like class food. Great service, the pastas are gorgeous as is everything else anyone tried. Must do, you will love it. We went two night in a row.
