Good risotto

I was looking forward to dining at this restaurant as it came highly recommended. The inside space was tight and the servers kept bumping into my chair when trying to serve other diners. The food was quite good, but not the best I had in Cannobio. My saffron/prosecco risotto was delicious. My... read more

A short review as this place is very uninspiring. Burnt pizza, poor wine and deliberately tried to overcharge us. A bit of advice, watch out for the supposed lack of a drinks menu with prices. I was charged 10 Euro for 500ml of house wine which is double the price of similar restaurants in Cannobio. Only myself to blame as... More

We had dinner twice at this place during our stay in Cannobio (as well as dining in other places). We found it good value, and the food we had was excellent. The choice of wine was also good, We liked the informality of the place, which was bustling, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We'd certainly go again.

Went back to this wine bar for dinner after a positive experience for lunch the day before. The chef must have had the night off since the safron risotto arrived half cooked . They must have agreed when I left it uneaten, since it didn't appear on the bill and apologies were forthcoming. We will give this place another try... More

My partner and I had a lovely meal here which didn't break the bank. €56 for a litre carafe of wine, water, 2 antipasti, pizza and pappardelle is good in Cannobio. The quality of the food was very good also but we felt a little rushed, as if they wanted the table for the next set of diners and yes,... More

If you want to drink a great wine with your food, then this is the place. Good service, lovely interior, nice outside seating, delicious food. Always very busy so maybe it is better to reserve in advance in order to get a good table.

Associated with though not owned by Hotel Pironi, this restaurant was always busy - and the service and food excellent. Their sister bistro bar called Oggi Pasta is 30 seconds walk away and is equally wonderful

There are few places in the worlds where you can eat as good as in Italy. Vizi e Sfizi quality is really excellent, the "finesse" of the "cuisine" is commendable. The wines choices are also wonderful

We had the house label wine and it was very good. Again, another great restaurant in Italy that has very good recipes and great service. No matter what you eat or drink here, it will satisfy you. Salute
