“First class food with a wonderful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Ate here yesterday evening and have to say that the food and service was first class. The restaurant has unspoilt view across lake Maggiore. We sat out on the small terrace at the front of the restaurant to make the most of the view. The staff were attentive and the food served promptly even though the place was packed full. The menu and wine list is extensive but we opted for the fish dishes which were superb. For a lake view the prices are also very reasonable. Can't wait to visit again.

“Best pizza and best prices for miles around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

The Giardino pizzeria and restaurant has long been a favourite with our family, both the older and the younger generation. There is a huge choice of pizzas, service is attentive and usually quick, and the situation is ideal, just on the Lungolago (lakeside road), handy for summer walks or going on to the frequented bars for an evening of music and chatting.
The decor has recently been changed and the lower floor is now much more elegant; I am truly tempted to try the restaurant menu rather than just pizzas next time around.... though we did have delicious 'bruschetta" with chopped tomato on while awaiting our pizzas.
Not sure if they accept bookings, but at busy times there is often a queue outside the door, so recommend trying to go earlyish or late rather than in the 8-9 pm time, especially on Fridays and Saturdays
