We had our wedding reception here and have been back for our first and second wedding anniversaries. It is a very rustic place right on the lake with a terrace actually over the lake. Once again a lovely meal and great service. The menu is all fish and is beautifully cooked and served - a good selection of Tuscan wines.... More

Clearly accordingly to recommendations this restaurant has been and can be good but I'm afraid our experience with a pre-opera meal was very poor indeed. On the plus side the setting is unquestionably lovely and the food we had was good and of course it is highly convenient for the Puccini opera festival. Unfortunately, the service was chaotic and slow... More

Last night we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Chalet Del Lago followed by the Opera. We made the booking by phone in April as we also had no replies to two email reservations. Nevertheless we persevered and made the booking through a waitress who spoke a little English. Having read the previous review we quickly emailed them, this time... More

Having attended the opera at Torre del Lago we have always wished to dine at the Chalet del Lago restaurant because of its idyllic setting on the lake and it's early twenties decor. This year we managed to do so on the 2nd of August. We were unable to make a booking by email until I attempted to do in... More

We went to Italy to get married and booked the restaurant for our reception. It is in a beautiful position overlooking a large lake with the hills in the background. It was a Monday when it is usually closed so we had the restaurant to ourselves. Patrizia and the staff looked after us wonderfully. The decor of the restaurant is... More

Restaurant is built over the Lake and a wonderful setting. Went there during the Puccini Festival before seeing Rigoletto. There was a set menu which was a little disappointing in terms of choice and smallish portions but really nice and tasty.

We chose this restaurant for its location and pre- opera menu. Our table was outside overlooking the lake, which was great. The view was stunning and the entertainment of the duck families amusing. Service was good with the waiters helpful. The menu was a little confusing as it was not the usual antipasti, primi, secondo etc that we are used... More

Located directly on the lake, this restaurant is a perfect place for a romantic dinner. The decor inside is nice too, my husband and I had good service while we were there and we liked everything we ordered. Plus, it's the only restaurant in the area where we didn't get overly salty food.

This has the perfect location and has many tables on the outside terrace overlooking the lake and is ideal for a pre-opera meal. The service and food are both sound rather than inspired. The pricing is reasonable. Perfect spot to while away a couple of hours before the opera.

I ate there with my family during the summer before going to the opera. It is a very quite and pleasant place. There are many tables outside and the view on the lake is beautiful. It is just next to the theatre, which makes it a perfect place to eat out just before or after going there. The service was... More
