Food was so-so. Menu was wrongly presented and staff unprofessional, mixed fish turned out to be scampi, spaghetti of Iseo turned out to be Spaghetti Bolognese, and even wrong type of wine was served. Nice view here but you can enjoy it for free outside.

Beautiful view, and the food was good, if not served luke warm with no accompaniments. The sea bass, while fresh and lovely, had no seasoning bar the lemon served with it and only a sparse scattering of lettuce otherwise on the plate.

Wow! This place sure was horrid! They trick you with their Michelin stickers in the window, but when you look it up, it’s not recommended by Michelin at all. I doubt it’s even recommended by the owners mother. I would be ashamed to work here...More
