“Delicious lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

We had lunch here while staying at the Savoia Regency Hotel. Even though it is quite large and it was also hosting a conference working lunch we have been served wonderfully. The menu is varied, with typical local dishes, as well as other proposals. Everything was really delicious. And in the end, to make the experience even nicer, the bill was extremely reasonable for the pleasant meal we had.

“beautiful settings and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

you are welcomed in the restaurant as a true guest, sometimes the waiters are over anxious to be of service, and you have a feeling it goes too quickly, but then again, each question you have they deal with and the service is excellent.
food: there is nothing that is bad on the menu, for the fish lovers i would recommend the sea bass, for the cheese lovers the bagoss d'alpeggio, and the tagliata is extraordinary well
we loved every minute we spend in the restaurant, and we will be back next year.

“Very average, why is it so highly rated?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011 via mobile

I am very surprised this restaurant is so highly rated. We stayed at the hotel and ate each evening and found the food to be very average and quite inconsistent. For example I had the duck at the start of the week and at the end and at the end it was not nearly as good as it was at the start. They were very busy and it was holiday time so this may have something to do with it. The service also also mixed and the staff are quite frenetic, often the food being almost thrown down before they ran off to attend to someone else. Generally we were very disappointed with the experience. The Sunday buffet was not great, poor value and flies everywhere. I have rated this as a 3 though on the last night it deserved no more than a 2 star.

The puddings are terrible, our children stopped eating puddings that week! The Mille feuille was quite bizarre, two burnt biscuits with some thick cream between them.
