Lovely family owned restaurant - You can not go wrong with any of fish dishes. Grilled to perfection - The linguini Seafood outstanding... But its the homemade Limoncello and Limoncello Tiramisu that will bow you away. Ask to be seated upstairs away from the ferry riders and enjoy the Island Views! Italy Perfection ! With a warm and friendly family... More

We disembarked from our boat and found this restaurant. The restaurant staff was nice. We had a separate table for kids and for us (6 and 4). The kids ordered their own dishes (out of the menu). All dishes were hot and worthy. The fish dishes (specifically assorted grilled fish) were perfect. The salmon was prepared perfectly. The best was... More

Dinner here on a night that there were sparse pickings in terms of open restaurants on Isola Pescatori. We were so delighted to be ushered upstairs to a table overlooking the lake, next to the family/owners whilst the ferry tourists were seated downstairs. They even were so accommodating of our needs they produced a fan when one of our party... More

It's quite incredible. We found this little gem using TripAdvisor and it's an absolutely well-deserved first place. The food is incredible, perfectly cooked, super fresh and uniquely seasoned. If you want the seats at the lakeside, you need to reserve in advance, but there is enough room upstairs and at the back, facing the pittoresque streets. We had the butter-fried... More

This is a very large restaurant on the right after you get off the ferry. We arrived when a large wedding party was being served so we had to wait. We were able to get a great table upstairs and the food was great. We were given Limoncello after dinner at no cost which was the frosting on the lunch... More

We were only in the Lakes region of Italy for a week, but we had an number of very good meals, but this was the best. Great food at inexpensive prices. Great view of Lake Maggiore. Great service. Unexpected treats, grappa or limincello offered complimentary at the end of the meal. In fact they left the bottles for our party... More

Enjoyed a lunch here, most of the restaurants were closed at this time of year. We enjoyed a simple pasta with fish from the lake, with an excellent lemon cake, staff friendly and attentive. Coffee served cold.

We stopped for a lovely lunch on the island. They served fresh and superbly prepared fish and seafood. We also enjoyed the house white wine that was very good. Overall an excellent lunch, good service and unbeatable view of the lake. Highly recommended!
