Nice courtyard hidden from the main front. Excellent service, menu card is small but has a very good choice. The food was excellent, it's not cheap but if you like good food and service this is the restaurant for you.

We highly recommend this little gem of an osteria. The osso buco de vitello con risotto zafferano e gremolade di verdure was amazing!

Hier befindet sich ein kleines Tessiner Haus, beseelt von kleinen Fenstern, die freundlich dem Wanderer nachschauen. Die Weinrebenpergola lädt ein zum gemeinschaftlichen Feiern im Freien, wo man ein Licht geniessen kann, wie es nur der See zu bieten hat.
