Veranda is many things, it's a lounge bar, a restaurant, a funny place on the beach and an home made ice-cream parlour. Ideal for business lunch, romantic dinner or just for a drink after dinner!

The only place to eat in Pianello !!

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

We had a couple of lunches here, the meals were simple but good. The restaurant is a cafe style alongside a caravan site so does good trade and is popular.

During daytime this may seem a regular hangout for your daily icecream and a glance at the lake but as time goes by family time is ending and a more sophisticated atmosphere automatically follows. Lunch is a good mixture of olden goldies and some new dinging as the evenings will serve you more starstruck food. The quality is always good... More

Rude staff, went for a quiet evening drink, was told "we don't serve til 7", fair enough, pointed to a table and served other people, my partner went to the bar and ordered drinks, another girl brought them out! Got brought out a little saucer of nibble things, which tasted like cat food on toast, or a sausage meatball, dry... More

Hi mrsgoggings, this is our first TERRIBLE review. Obviously something went wrong and we apologize for this. We have 90% of reviews between good and excellent and most of these comes from the quality of our food and the kindness of our staff... I invite you to check other review. Probably you simply did not like our restaurant ... we... More

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.
