Creative cuisine and small portions. This is a surprise because it is a little jewel along the lake and one would think it is just another Osteria. Refined, romantic, excellent dining.

This restaurant is not to be missed. The food and wine - superb. Best meal I had in Italy and we mostly ate at the top spots. This is one of them - except it is better food and better prices than anywhere else. The owners are so sweet. They helped me pull of an incredible engagement upstairs on their... More

Great little restuarant looking out onto the lake. Took my wife for a birthday lunch and was not disapointed and more importantly neither was she. Food was excellent, italian with a nice little modern twist. Asked the waiter to help us with the choice of wine and he swiftly got the owner to come to our table and he then... More

Don't spend your time and money, the food is very bad, salty and very few portions. I don't recommend this place at all. Horrible experience in my life.

I will do my best to try to explain what I mean with this one but not an easy one to put your finger on as in some ways acceptable but moments of comedy. Two things start the alarm bells ringing first the name and then the menus arriving in a wooden box with a magnifying glass. Both start to... More

At 15 Euros (3 courses + coffee and water) for the set lunch menu this is great value. The food is freshly prepared and presented with care and pride. Untypically, there was a genuine veggie option. Add to that, a great location overlooking the lake. Only 3 choices of starter and main course - meat, seafood and veggie - and... More

We had the tasting menu explaining one ate no meat and the other no tomatoe. This was accommodated well. 6 courses, a number of fish, on delicious pasta and one interesting risotto with blueberries. Nice but whether to be repeated ?? well executed. Dessert had a wonderful chocolate brownie. There was a recommended wine tasting but this would have nearly... More
