“Spend your time and money elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The only good thing about this restaurant is the location on the waterfront, where you have the fun of gazing at the lake and watching the passing parade. There is little else to recommend it as both the service and the food were woeful. We visited mid-week in the middle of the summer season when you would expect a restaurant to anticipate a busy service. The floor staff seemed inexperienced and disorganised and the kitchen uncoordinated, so that 2 of our dishes were served 7 minutes apart (I timed it!) and one – a green salad – never appeared at all. The pizza was soggy, lukewarm and bland. The gnocchi a la nonna was hot and had plenty of spinach, but we struggled to taste the promised gorgonzola. No parmesan was offered. When our waiter brought the bill he did ask whether we had received the salad and had the grace to apologise for the omission, however he seemed surprised when we pointed out 2 random drink items on the bill that we had neither ordered nor received! I suppose one expects mediocrity from tourist restaurants, but this was downright poor.

“Some of the best dishes ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Indoor or outdoor seating at the far eastern end of Uberlingen, directly on the lake. My wife said that her cream of tomato soup was the best she ever ate and I felt the same way about the caneloni. Blankets were available if one felt chilled on the outdoor patio. Service was inconspicuous but adequate. Would go back just for the food.
