Wow, waiting for 20 minutes for menu. Asked twice then asked for the third time. We paid for our water then left. The funny thing, is when I said to the waiter it was poor service. And that would write a review on trip advisor....More

New restaurant in the palazzo Mantegazzi. Interior is contemporary: Hi tech lifts, glass, transparent plastic chairs and white walls. Vitello tonnato was tasty and tender but the steak was a little bit overdone (surely not medium). I think it's a good place to have a...More

Nice place with lake view during spring/summer. Every day they have great special dishes (not in the menu). The service is professional and kind. I'll go there also to have tartare or club sandwich for lunch.
