I was here on Thursday last week. I saw the reviews at TripAdvisor and everything what is written is right. The waitress didn't speak English that well, but she did a great job to explain the menu to me. Too bad it wasn't that busy, but I had a great dinner and if you are in Lovere, go there for... More

This restaurant is unique. I had risotto with fish and chocolate. It sounds weird but it was a great combination. I loved it! They give great advice on the wine and food and it is a great ambiance.

Loved this place - went based on Tripadvsior reviews and so glad we did. It was empty when we went (off season and at 7pm) but this didn't detract from anything. They had an English version of the menu which was very helpful, and the dessert menu changes everyday based on the ingredients they have. We had a spaghetti dish... More

Parol doesn't look like much from the outside -- a few tables on an alley. But the inside is charming and the owner is very personable. The food is excellent at reasonable prices. The best place we found to eat in Lovere.

A must visit restaurant in Lovere. We were made very very welcome by a lovely family. A magnum of red wine helped the evening and the food was amazing. We will be regular diners!

The food was spectacular, we skipped the appetizers and the first course because the meat and fish dishes looked so appetizing. On a suggestion of the owner we took a bottle of white wine, pork with porcini mushrooms and a plate of small fried fish. They were both so good we could not decide who had taken the better meal!...

Our last night in Lovere, and after rather disappointing meals elsewhere in town and a month of pretty ordinary food in the Dolomites, we stumbled in to Parol Osteria. The room is sleek and modern, by local and Italian standards. Some cushions on the chairs would have been nice since the chairs weren't all that comfortable, but the food and... More

In this restaurant they only speak Italian. But still I managed to order a nice Bass dish (right from the Lake Isao) with a very delicous gelato with molten chocolate cupcake dessert.
