We were pleased to see Claudia again and eat another great lunch here in a room buzzing with locals. Wonderfully long lunch with too many treats to list. It's worth the journey up to the Lake. Brava Claudia e Diego! 👍

We were advised that the antipasti were worth going for, and hefty. What an understatement! We never got beyond them. Four of us, staggering after the series of very good starters - wide variety, cooked and fresh, from baked soufflé cheese to bruschetta to crisp...More

This may have been the best meal we've had in Italy. A little bit of a challenge to find, but the ride through the countryside is half the fun. For some reason, this gorgeous little place doesn't show up on TripAdvisor when you search Lago...More
