I really enjoyed the visit to this restaurant. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. I had scallops followed by fillet steak with cheese fondue, and both were cooked to perfection. The scenery is lovely, and it is nice to sit on the terrace for a drink. The only thing I would say is that it is quite a limited... More

Loved the location of this place, right on the waters edge. Discovered it while out biking along the lake edge path. English is spoken which helps when you're fresh off the plane. Seemed to miss the kitchen being open, but the beer was good, and the piadine or panini superb. Heard the salads are very good. Would be great spot... More

We had lunch here during a walk along the lake, and it was definitely the best meal out during our short break. The seafood tasting platter, although might not be to everyone's tastes (raw!), was beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. The tuna was cooked perfectly, and we could not fault anything about the whole experience. The service was friendly and... More

Whether it is fantastic italian ice cream or a full on fine dining experience right beside the lake the is a place to be, the location between the camping sites should not put you off as the food is worth it!

Slightly limited menu but each dish was beautifully presented and delicious. Had an upmarket feel compared to the rest of 'local' Pianello. Very good for seafood!
