“Pizza - as it should be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

If you want to enjoy a truly good tasting Pizza, go here. You get it - and you have choice of endless variations. Ever heard of a French Fries Pizza? Here you get it. (And kids love it.)

Don't expect a fancy restaurant, the "Giardino" is simple and therefore simply a joy. You also don't get the ever smiling staff here, but you get the real thing. Authentic and true. The decoration is classic Italian, a bit dated, but never mind that.

You come here after a day on the Lake or taking a break from a long journey to or back from Italy. It's worth it and far better than stopping at the usual highway restaurants.

The food is great, the prices are OK.
