The food was delicious and the service SUPERB. We have been in Italy for more than 10 days and it was probably the best restaurant we stayed at because of the combination: good food, good wine, friendly and very professional service, warm and familiar atmosphere... Would recommend this place to everyone who's in Brunate!

Nice place, very kind people and delicious food! Maybe the landscapes are not the best ones but who cares when you are busy with a delicious dish?

Very good service, nice staff and great food! The portions are quite big, so if you're not extremely hungry one course is more than enough.

Courteous owner. Good quality food and excellent wine. Water is free here. It is a pity not all the food was served together.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and had a voucher for free drinks. When we walked over to the restaurant, the place was dark and appeared to be closed up, though the... More
