Welcomed by a crackling wood fire upon arrival, which was very well received on the cold February night I was visiting!! Prosecco was offered to us upon arrival, which was very refreshing - The restaurant offers a concise menu that focuses on true Italian dishes...More

We have never walked out of a restaurant until we visited L’Ustaria. The setting is beautiful, a quaint little restaurant set right on the tranquil lake. However, the ‘food’ which was served to our party was beyond bad. The crespelle starter was acidic, the pesto...More

Had a lovely lunch here with my husband. Amazing setting, lovely innovative food and great wine. Staff were very welcoming and even made a fuss of our boisterous Viszla. Definitely a place to return. Value for money considering the quality of the food.

Although it's not easy to access, once you have parked your car in the U shaped sloping parking lot, you finally sit down and enjoy the magnificent view of the lake. Service is courteous and attentive. Salmon tartar is quite tasteless, shrimp are good and...More

Went for a weekend lunch. Nice restaurants deserve a dinner in my view, but here also the location has its value and being late autumn, daylight directly on the shore is making it more enjoyable. Had appetisers, starters and cheese, all well prepared and nicely...More
