I visited this restaurant with family. The restaurant was busy and we were seated quickly without a booking. We all opted for pasta which was delicious along with a nice bottle of Chianti. The service was very efficient and pleasant. The restaurant was busy and had a lovely atmosphere. It also has a very pleasant view of the lake which... More

During summer 2015 and 2016 we have been in this restaurant a few times with friends and family. Generally food is ok to good but the staff is slow, at times ignorant and there are better places to go at the water front.

This restaurant offers a wide selection of dishes. Portions are on the verge of gluttony. Prices are average, although the cover charge is unwarranted. The view especially at sunset is something out of this world.

The food was under an average quality. I had some lasagna which was to greasy, you could almost an oil layers at the top of the plate. the services wasn't professional as they forgot to serve my friend pizza so he received it when we had finished to eat our main.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere with good food and excellent value for money. The service was really good and the fish platter second to none. Pizzas just extra thin and tasty with good choice of toppings. Local grappa delicious!

We visited this pizzeria but found it very average. the lasagne was all pasta and no meat sauce (ragu) although the tomato sauce was delicious. the waiters were very friendly although they seemed bemused by the fact we were English as it was mainly frequented by the local residents.

We choose this restaurant because was the only in Iseo that was open after 2.30p.m but the surprise was that they continued to cook dishes and not only pizza. Usually if someone chooses to have the best view on the lake must be prepared to be tolerant on prices and quality. That’s why I have a rule in this cases:... More

Situated overlooking the lake in the centre of the main tourist thoroughfare. The service was very brusque the waitress obviously having no interest in serving us. The food we had was OK but nothing special - my wife didn't get any hand wipes for her large prawn dish and they never appeared when asked for. The bill also included the... More

This restaurant faces the lake but on a busy corner. I had the spaghetti vongole, which was in a thick tomato sauce not good. My wife had the fillet of fish which was fried in batter very thin and overcooked. The house wine was also very acidy. Would not recommend.
