Whether it is fantastic italian ice cream or a full on fine dining experience right beside the lake the is a place to be, the location between the camping sites should not put you off as the food is worth it!

Slightly limited menu but each dish was beautifully presented and delicious. Had an upmarket feel compared to the rest of 'local' Pianello. Very good for seafood!

Didn't like the food at all. We tried this restaurant upon advise so expectations where bit high for this place. We had the mixed seafood as starter which turned out to be some raw fish and shrimps. I like this in Japanese restaurants when very fresh and with some soja sauce but this just didn't taste good at all. We... More

Amazing little gem, great food, lovely atmosphere and fab sevice. Even if you are staying in another town around the lake I would definitely recommend a visit for food in the evening, or even a quick pitstop in the day for a flavoured G&T or a home made italian ice cream.

We actually thought this was just a cafe, as most times we saw people having a drink og gelato... Wow were we surpised... Two nights we had an amazing 3-course menu. The value is great, views nice, relaxing atmospher, and food tasteful. They have some interesting tvists on the menu, so that its not just the ordinary Italian. Wished we'd... More

A morning coffee and pastry, to an afternoon drink and evening meal, this place is perfectly situated with beautiful views over the lake. Suitable for all family, couples and drinks with friends. The atmosphere is great both during the... More

The staff are so very friendly and made us very welcome on the numerous occasions we dined or just had a drink in this idyllic setting. Shame that it closes from October until next spring. The party night (Wednesday) was particularly exciting.

Enjoyed our dinner at The Veranda immensely. Was recommended to us by a local italian who is a keen food enthusiast. We were not disappointed. I cannot praise the restaurant and staff enough. Excellent service from Serena, delightful and attentive, who recommended an excellent yet affordable wine to accompany our meal. Each course was impeccably presented, with evidently fresh ingredients... More
