We enjoyed eating here very much, the service was not so good though because even though it was not complete full, the waitress kept saying it's full. Only the big table was available and I assume that she didn't want only us two sitting there. We waited 30 min walking around the island and came back around 1:30pm and it was less crowded, we could find a really nice spot with the view on the lake. I strongly recommend you to go there early to get a nice seat or after 1:30pm.

This restaurant was very busy which was a good sign but the service proved to be quite slow. Our time on the island was restricted so we felt a little anxious that we would not be back to our boat in time!
However, when our meal arrived it was worth the wait. My husband had a selection of cheeses and a green salad, whilst I chose the vegetable lasagne (they had run out of the meat lasagne). Both dishes were absolutely delicious. Our friend chose the fish, this was a really large fillet and I was informed that it was beautiful. He also had a side salad. His wife chose the cheese and spinach ravioli, which was also greatly enjoyed. We washed it down with bottled water. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
We only just made it back to our boat in time so were unable to have a proper look around the island.

We had a great lunch of steak and chips and fish and chips at this restaurant. It was all cooked to perfection. One of the best steaks I've had. To top it all, it was all very reasonable and I would definitely recommend eating here if you are on the island.

This trattoria has a beautiful terrance over looking the lake. The food is not fancy; however, simple is often the best. We love the lavarello (lake fish) or the trout grilled and served with either potato or salad. Reservations recommended during July/August time frame as it fills up fast.

Trattoria Imbarcadero offers a good selection of local quality food. Price is average considering the location right at the water's edge. Our party took four pasta dishes and a meat dish with fries. Cost including 2 bottles of water ... €61... Be careful as the restaurant and many (not all) levy a €2 per head cover charge. Service was lacking ... Dishes took 30 mins to arrive and the meat arrived after the pasta had been eaten and digested. Overall 3 star but can easily be a four star if they improve on the service and five star if they drop the ridiculous cover charge.
