“apertif”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

as a foreigner not knowing much places in Italy, went to this place with my friends for an aperitivo. And that will be the first and the last time i went there. Hospitality is zero, the happy hour food was very cheap and was counted. Grissini was given only 2 per person. Everything was given counted. Damn you go with ur friends for a night to enjoy not to get back home nervous

Hello Jasmine.
We apologise if anything was wrong, but at the same time I refuse with conviction your opinion about us.
In particular about our hospitality: for us a custumer is first of all a guest. What was wrong with our welcome? If the hospitality is zero, what was so heavy wrong? Are we so rude and so insolent? I don't believe it.
And then, about the food. We serve at least an assortement of salami and cheese, grissini and chips. But at least, normally it's more than this, with warm food and a taste of our restaurant dishes. Did we serve you only grissini? Sincerely, I' dont believe it again.
Kind regards.

“At least they have the view in their favor.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

The best part about this restaurant is the location--the terrace is spacious and has stunning views of the lake. The menu is limited and the food is only average for the region. Our appetizers lacked flavor or creativity. The main pasta course was good, but again nothing special. The wine list is very good and reasonably priced.

I'm Fabrizio, the owner of the restaurant.
I remember very well what happened last monday.
I'm very sorry you had a bad dinner.
In the particolar you had the pasta with tuna and onions, and the cuttlefish. I and my chef checked the food, and up to us was absolutely ok. I could be you don't appreciate, but it was very flavoured. About the cuttlefish, you choosed it, I'm sorry you didn't understant what I was. But you didn't taste it at all, so how you can say that it was bad?
Up the menu, it's our chooise having a very light menu, with only two dishes for course.
I'm very sorry if you didn't like our restaurant.
I'd like I have you here another time.
Cordially,
Fabrizio Mangiapane
