This place may look like a wine-bar, but the food is really nice. We were a family of six, so I got to sample quite a few starters and main courses. I had a salmon starter (see picture), and beef tartar - both were great, as was the wine we had with the food. The inside of the restaurant is... More

Have been here a couple of times for lunch and never disappointed. Good food, friendly service and interesting wine list. Today, enjoyed perfectly-prepared, al dente spaghetti with black truffles accompanied by a lovely red from Puglia. Am surprised by the negative reviews - as locals, we've only had positive experiences here.

We don't understand the bad comments below. Really good food, best pizza of our holiday and a delicious Salad. The staff was friendly en the location was perfect.

Had a couple of drinks outside Vizi e Sfizi, under the atmospheric colonnade alongside the tiny street fronting the winebar. The service couldn't have been more attentive or friendly with plenty of staff eager to please. With each drink came gratis, a large starter of fruit, cured ham and a variety of bread and bread sticks. All in all, great... More

Really poor quality food with disinterested service. No wine list so ended up paying 8 euro a glass for substandard and tiny glasses of wine. Location is lovely but there are far better restaurants in Cannobio with better surroundings. Really wish I'd read the bad reviews on here first as they are all accurate! Avoid!

Couldn't get a table at our favorite restaurant, so we tried this. Nice venue, seemed attractive. We just had a salad and a burger. The salad was just a salad. The bread came in a plastic bag that was thrown nonchalantly on the table. The burger was barely edible, the fries were not, the price for it was high. As... More

Tired of pasta, pizza etc we just fancied a nice salad for lunch and we were quite impressed with the choice here. We chose a lovely combination of lettuce, tomato, bacon, potato, croutons and oranges. It was so nice I've been replicating it at home myself. The restaurant is very modern and inviting but we ate outside in the shady... More

Rather disinterested waiters, more interested in what's happening in the street and the ladies. Service was a necessary evil, rather than part of a pleasurable dining experience. Food was nothing more than average, hence we didn't return.
