Great in all aspects

We stopped for a quick and easy lunch but the experience turned out to be so much more. Excellent service by the lovely owner who served us in spite of the fact that she was about to close and top class food without pretension - all too a great price. Top marks!

hidden away in the old main street of Toscolano lies this gem. Wonderfully cool in the summer. Great local choices and worth a visit.

We had fish and a vegi pasta. Good food. Relaxed atmosphere. Polite service. The house wine could have been better. If are in the neighborhood pay a visit.

We got there at a decent time and bagged a seat outside, the food was local and delicious! The staff were friendly and welcoming. We would recommend this to anyone seeking somewhere local and off the beaten track.

Really enjoyed this place. Very small trattoria with only a few tables - you have to book if you want to eat here. Menu was not huge but something for everyone, and the food was of very high quality. We halved a pasta starter which was no problem. They have 'house wines' which were very good, but they also have... More

This little place in Toscolano Maderno is a treasure. He is in the kitchen and she is the service. Only Italian is spoken, but they are very helpful. The food is excellent with all the traditional favourites plus usually some rabbit and fresh fish. Desserts are a cut above the usual selection.
