“Standards have slipped”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

Last year this was one of our favorite restaurants, so we returned on a busy Thursday music night with high expectations, which unfortunately were not met. Yes, it was music night and so they had extra tables on the promenade, but the service was very poor and slow - but we're on holiday and there's no rush. But, the food has really gone down hill. One of the dishes we ordered was pumpkin gnocchi with prawns, which was a glutenous mush that was pretty much inedible. When paying the bill (the highest of any meal we had at Salo) the manager/owner asked; "how was the meal?" - I did explain the issues with the food, service and at our disappointment, given the great meal we had had last year. He merely shrugged his shoulders and aided the 10% service charge - we shall not return.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

This restaurant is small and situated waterfront, by the promenade and view is nice. We came for early dinner at 18. As we were a large group of 13 with no reservation we were first told that we couldn't get a table, but after some considerations the manager fixed us a table. Food was excellent. Between all the pizza/pasta restaurants it was a relief to see other options. We tried beef tartar, scallops with truffles, carpaccio , salmon, risotto with truffles/mozzarella and sliced beef. Risotto was very special. Only disappointment was the creme brulee for dessert. Both the waiters and the manager were very attentive and service was good. I can highly recommend this restaurant. Enjoy!

“Food with a view - simply lovely.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Great location, lovely food and a very cheeky host! Definitely the place to eat if you would like a fabulous view of the lake and watch the world go by. Lots of choice with something different to suit every one .
As this restaurant is on the front, for the first time ever you are now disturbed by rose sellers and annoying musicians the waterfront restaurants need to put a stop to this before it gets out of hand.

Worth a visit especially for a late lunch/early evening to make the most of the view as well as the food.

“Great food with a great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

Beef tartare to start with tuna as a main course - lovely. Good service, albeit that the waiter was alone and had all the tables to serve. He could have used some help as we had to wait a while for our order to be taken, after that though it was great.

Recommended.
