We crossed the lake to Isole Maggiore and stopped for lunch at this much recommended restaurant. Our seat was right on the lakeside, very romantic, except for the millions of tiny spiders crawling around on the table, over the glasses, on the cutlery, etc. enough...More

We had lunch here today. Well, only just - the service was so slow we were about to leave when someone at last came to take our order. The lake views are great but that doesn't make up for the really slow service and bland,...More

Fabulous setting outside and friendly service. Local food with plenty from the lake. The setting makes up for the food quality a bit. We had a lovely lunch and not expensive.

Six for pranzo at the edge of the lake on the Isola Maggiore. Despite some doubts from a member of our party who had previously not liked freshwater fish, the grilled persico wth either truffle or sage was pronounced perfect. The gnocchi we thought was...More

L’Oso restaurant is exclusively family-run. The owners personally take care of the cooking, which includes an abundance of dishes based on fish from the lake, local products such as mushrooms and truffles, and regional specialities, along with a wide selection of wines. It is possible to book for dinners, ceremonies, or parties when you can taste the various dishes on the terrace or in the large garden overlooking the lake. In the evening, when the ferry boats are no longer running, the restaurant owners guarantee the trip back in a private boat.
