This is different. The eating places on the road across the lake are good but very much the same. The Catina Follie is different and fun. We ate on the terrace. There is only one choice which makes life easy. A platter of meats and...More

Excellent lunch. Food was very good and service was friendly. Great wine choice. Terrace was beautiful with shade. Restaurant is not visible from main street near the lake: it’s hidden in a really small street. Highly recommend this place.

Amazing little place. The mixed meat and cheese platters were so good. Knowledge of wines was incredible and matched perfectly to our tastes. Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 visits over the weekend. Simply must visit.

We were hoping for a meal but were pleasantly surprised by the platter of local meats & cheeses...they even gave us a sizeable taste of a 34 year old parmesan. The wine was so good that we drank a bottle there and bought another for...More

We would like to thank all our guests that visit and reviewed us in our first 8 years of activity, Deborah & Joost.Our Winebar-Enoteca is specialized in platters prepared at the moment with local sliced cuts and cheeses.we don't not serve pasta, or maincourses because our philosophy is doing just a few things...but done in the proper way. Genuine ospitality and our motto "come like a guest go like a friend"
