“Quality food with impressive views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Over 8 nights in Salo we ate here 3 times. You certainly get over pizza or pasta so to have other choices is worth the extra cost. AND you get to watch the passing parade and evening light - so entertainment too. We had no trouble with service as you are not in a hurry. The food itself was excellent - sliced beef / steak / veal / chicken dishes all looked lovely on the plate and the palate. Highly recommend.

“Decent food but poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has a nice location and the food is good. Loved the fact that there was a glass screen between us and the pedestrians. The food and wine we had we good but what spoilt the evening was the pace of service. New customers were getting attention and being seated at the expense of those if us who were already sat down. We arrived at 8.15 and didn't get our main course until 9.50. It even took 15 mins for the bill to arrive! Nice setting and decent food but unfortunately the slow service overshadowed the night.

“Beautiful Restaurant on the waterfront! Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

We loved this restaurant and if you are in Salo or passing by pop in for a meal. We ate here twice during our week in Salo as the food was brilliant but we wanted to try out a few other places, some of which disappointed including the Papillon restaurant where service was very slow and we were forgotten about. The food here is delightful and beautiful presented and it's a lovely spot being on the lake front. It is extremely popular and you can see why as the food is amazing and the owner is brilliant. His English was great and he went out of his way to make you feel welcome and at home. The menu offers something a bit different too than the obvious Italian dishes you see everywhere else. There are some classics with a twist and I tried the local fish twice as there were several options on the menu available. Both were absolutely delicious. My husband had steak one night and we both enjoyed the desserts each time also. The owner and waitresses work so hard and once a table was emptied it would be full again within minutes if there wasn't already a queue. I'd advise booking in advance as it's so popular unless you are passing by earlier on in the evening. You won't be disappointed. Thank you so much for those special meals and making our holiday in Salo such a memorable one. First-class service & food!

“Good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

as others have said, it is probably the best restaurant on the lakeside [we tried most]. It is modern European, as opposed to pasta, pizza etc. It has a fork from Michelin. We enjoyed the food. It is a bit more pricey than others - but worth it.

“Not a pizza in sight!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

An excellent meal in an excellent location on the promanade and not a pizza in sight! After a week in Italy with four children this was a really great option for a delicious adults meal with a sophisticated menu. Costs were on the higher side but with the location and attentive service we thought good value. Would recommend.
