Lovely surprise

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance. As you enter there is a lovely computer graphic on the floor which got everyone's attention, especially the kids. We hadn't booked but they found a table for the 7 of us. Kids menu of homemade pasta with Ragú or tomatoe sauce costs only €5! A great wine... read more

Offered a drink 'on the house' on arrival and then was brought a antipasto 'on the house' also!! Food cooked really well - not huge portions and not cheap but very enjoyable. Our bill came to 65 euros for 2 people and we had a pasta dish and a main - lake fish and coffee( which came with homemade biscuits)... More

All round good value at this restaurant which isn't the easiest to find. It's located under an archway 5 minutes stroll from the centre of town. From when you walk in to when you leave, the service from the very nice staff is excellent, this place is not the Ritz nor does it offer silver service but the staff are... More

This meal was by far the best I had in Iseo. I was attracted to the restaurant because it was the only menu I found with lamb on it, and at 15 Euros I couldn't not try it! The restuarant is quite atmospheric with a cellar style interior and an outside dining area. Now, it is true, very little English... More

Not a lot of choices to eat in Iseo (town) really. Very unassuming place, you coudl easily walk right by. We ate in the back, a covered patio snd no it is not that romantic. The place is very basic, this is not an upscale dining place or an upscale dining experience. They don't speak a lot of English, so... More

My wife and I ate here in mid October and hands down this was the best meal we had in Italy and on our two plus week trip in Europe. The service, wine, environment and the experience was incredible.

The fish was fresh and beautifully prepared and presented. If you like good local food then you must eat here Everything about this restaurant is to be commend. There... More
