We dined here on our first evening of a long weekend in Arona having been recommended the restaurant by the owner of the apartment we were staying. The service was attentive yet not invasive albeit a quiet somewhat rainy evening at the end of August....More

Refreshing to see your value's worth amidst a few standard overpriced restaurants. Good quality food that offers something different than the usual tourist palate adjusted bites. Great wine pairing as well, together with the Lake view closed the deal for us. We had the starter...More

Read the reviews on this restaurant, and decided to go there for dinner an evening in July. Had main courses with duck, and these were truly a disappointment. The meat was very stringy,almost uneatable. We paid and left for desserts at another place.

Very, very fine Italian food served with passion by the owner/chef Pino. A small restaurant with a limited choice on the menu but everything you can order is exquisite. We have been there several times and it is always a great pleasure.
