Lovely restaurant with lakeview. Staff is very friendly and they all speak english. Don't expect a big plate of pasta or pizza's here but fine dining of exceptional quality. The food is made with love and we could taste that.

Great place for coffee or ice cream right next to the lakeside. Next to a promenade which would be great to walk along in the evenings. Not easy to find but park in the public car park down via Don Carlo Coppini next to the church, then walk to the lake and turn right.

Charming cafe on the lakeside with delicious fresh seafood and big choice of homemade ice-cream. The fried squid were fantastic!

Fish restaurant with freshly cooked food. Waitresses very friendly and helpful especially if you don't speak Italian! We went back the next day to try different flavours of ice cream as so good.

You should definitely try the tuna antipasti and the red wine "Anima di Negroamaro"! Sometimes live music, not so crowded, perfect!

We didn't eat here as we are not generally seafood eaters but would go for a drink and an ice cream. Lovely ambience and friendly staff

Yet again spent a fabulous week dining and being entertained at the Veranda. The menu, the quality of the food, the atmosphere, but most of all the friendliness of the people that work there is exceptional. This is our 5 th year at Pianello and the Veranda makes the visit that more pleasurable.

This restaurant needs to get some better signage as people need to be able to find it, as it is fabulous! It has a lovely romantic feel to it in the evenings with large candle lanterns lighting the deck and in the day it offers a modern, chilled and relaxed environment, all with beautiful views to the lakes and mountains....

Lakeside restaurant in Pianello del Lario - off the beaten track but worth seeking out. Small selection on menu but unique and very tasty! Great service and friendly atmosphere. Spotted head chef from another excellent nearby restaurant dining there, and appeared to be a regular so high recommendation in itself! Also spotted famous celeb eating there while we were there...
