Great food, friendly service, great value for money.
Andreas, who is the son of the owner, made us feel personally welcome, as did his sister laura and mother Claudia.

The location of this restaurant at the waterfront is the only positive thing about Caffe Verbano. I travel and eat out frequently, but I yet have to encounter a restaurant with a staff that is able to underperform the staff of this place. After spending a quarter of an hour waiting for the menu, we placed our orders with incomptence personified in the form of a guy called Andre. Though he's a waiter, Andre preferes to play the guitar and do his hair while keeping a restaurant filled with guests waiting. Nevertheless, after around 40 minutes, food was served. Unfortunately this was not the food we ordered, but after another 20 minutes of waiting we then finally got the starters we did order. Caffe Verbano's interpretation of a bruschetta is a dry piece of toast with halved cherry tomatoes and a single leaf of basil on it. Around 20 minutes after finising our starters, we were finally served our main courses along with some drinks we didn't order. The tagliatelle with gorgonzola sauce contained a single crumb of the cheese and the spagetti was apparently cooked in brine. We asked for the bill, which came after another 15 minutes and left. During the entire evening, Andre was being yelled at and scolded by his colleagues, mostly while standing next to our table. While his colleagues were very right in adressing his insufferable attitude, this should obviously not be done in the presence of guests. Overall our evening was ruined by the people of Caffe Verbano to such an extend that it almost became comical. I know most people spontaneously choose this restaurant because of it's location, but if you're lucky enough to read this review before you go: take your money somewhere else; it's garanteed to be better spent than at Caffe Verbano.
