An additional benefit by staying at Federico & Mom' s BnB..( where he was raised,)was Not just the guest dinner discount, but while @ Al Vicolo dei Pescatore, to preview both the menu, & blackboard prior. Then enjoyed the beautiful rich with history & architecture near the lake. Do a complete walkabout, including the Piazza, Church, & waterfront promenade.
Using the restaurant as the "bar" as which to judge all others, in the encroaching " off season" , La Nepitella was the Obvious choice. Choice lakeside dining area,feeling adventurous,for last Night near Rome, Less So, Otherscan dine behind the Inn. Everyone else took advantage of plastics & Natural protection, where a Dozen Diners were Cave toasty just outside the Chef's Cucina , in front of a second Building,small Piazza area. We had the Lake to ourselves, Blankets avail., but not necessary, Zero breeze on an Autumn eve @ Sunset.
Antipasti / Starters included wonderful mix of bruschetta including Olive tapenade.Secondi - full pot of Peppered Mussels in a light bottom coarse salt, garlic,& sliced lemons. Although I wanted a fritti of NO sardine, Calamari & crustaceans, had to try a Prima in a Demi of fresh grilled lake Pike. Great to have both Fresh. Salt & Sea options, from the Chef. As the last dinner in Rome, My wife's simple request was Fresh pasta of Ravioli in Red sauce, with some crusty bread, & local olive Oil.
Had finished some Nobile vine Red from Montepulciano, working through Fish with local White, refreshing, by the glass. Mama had control of her desserts, Federico served, including a Chocolate decadent, gluten free almond flour , cake. The berried bread based dessert was delicious. A change - up from homemade limoncello sampled was potent mandarin.. Momma concocted.
Food was 5*. Service & hospitality 5* ! Perfect fin to Italia.

We arrived early but despite not being quite open we were allowed to sit and they even brought aperitifs as we waited
The food was nice but the location was wonderful and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful

We are driving around the lake and fancied a bite to eat, parked the car and strolled along the pavement. We saw the tables laid and read the menu. Staff were attentive an dated food delicious - excellent seafood, well-cooked, nothing fancy. What a serendipitous find and what a view!

Been to Nepitella several times over the last 4 years and my partner has yet to eat a decent plate of food there. I always have the same dish and you can't go wrong with linguine and clams. Although the pasta is too al dente for my liking. My partner's fish was over cooked and dried out with no sauce very over priced. The side dish of fried potatoes arrived as late and were cold crisps. €5 and not eaten! The wine was fine but not chilled sufficiently whereas the bottled water was didn't really make sense. I get that people rave about the view, it is stunning however the food must be better!
