This is an amazing place to go on a sunny day. Right by the lake with a great terasse you can have a great meal sipping a glass of wine. The food is overall good (nothing extraordinary) and with a large selection so anyone can find something of their liking. The service could be improved as it feels like there... More

Enjoy the views while your are eating. Perfect location for sunny weather. Food is Italian and quality is high. Prices are a bit higher than standard, but considering prime location it is understandable.

Overpriced. Even for Switzerland. Our server, who never took our order was extremely rude and unhelpful. Silvia never even delivered our food. The first time we talked to her was to ask for a wifi password. Two times. She ignored us. My wife had an awesome molten chocolate cake with great ice cream. Worth it? Sure was! I he'd a... More

This is a good Italian restaurant by the lake. The food is good ( tried only the vegetarian options). The fish they serve is appealing to the eyes too. If you indulge Ina gelato after food you won't be disappointed. There is ample variety of drinks too. (Pity I don't drink either) The service is average with not much attention... More

Dreary, slow and miserable staff spoiled a birthday celebration. The restaurant enjoys a wonderful spot but it is wasted because of the ages it takes to order a drink, main course, dessert and another long wait for the bill. Walk on by. Don't waste your time stopping here.

Sitting outside on a sunny day is really enjoyable as the restaurant terrace is very close to the lake. The restaurant specialty is fish. I recommend ordering it in salt. Asparagus salad is good too. I heard pasta were not bad. Nevertheless, service was poor (but the restaurant was packed).

The staff really made us feel welcome at this restaurant and it was a pleasure to have our evening meal there. The pizza was very nice, but nothing really stood out to me therefore I'd class it has a normal/average eatery. A little bit over priced; only a little bit!

I went alone, as I was having a fun filled day of shopping while my boyfriend attended a conference. Just needed a place to recharge. I was treated so well by two of the staff members on duty. I had the place to myself practically. Wonderful rose wine and probably some of the best home made pasta around. I'll be... More
