“Very different and worth trying.”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

The pasta was Ok. I regret that I did not order a meat dish. They look interesting and unusual for Italian restaurants round here. I really like their style; bringing dishes to the table with covers on is a good move.

The view and furnishing give the place great charm. It has almost an alpine feel about it. There is lots of bric a brac in the dining room which adds greatly to the atmosphere.

I would do a repeat visit anytime.

“Blueberry pasta with orange oil”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

A feast for the senses, scent of wisteria in garden terrace, fantastic views over the lake and delicious home cooked rustic cuisine. Recommend the blueberry pasta with orange oil.

“Can't argue about the view!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Very disappointed by the food. If you call a few chopped vegetables in hot water 'minestrone' then you'll probably love it here. For us the meal of two courses and a double espresso (for 7 or 8 euros I can't quite recall) at a total of 73 euros, seemed very overpriced. But the view and the sunset was quite amazing. So if you're not a fussy eater (bland pasta with tinned mushrooms / turkey breasts in a wierd sauce and a plate of emptiness) then treat yourselves and bring a camera.

“Amazing view, lovely food, great service”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We spent part of my birthday in Brunate and chose to have lunch here, based on a friend's recommendation. The restaurant has a lovely setting, quirky rustic decor. We received a quick friendly service. I had basil pasta with butter and cheese sauce - amazing! Hubby had braised deer with vegetables, also very delicious.
It is a lovely place and thoroughly recommended!!
