Zu is tucked away by the side of the winding road on the western shore of Lake Iseo. Blink and you will miss the entrance which is a pity because the views from the restaurant are spectacular as is the food, with fish being their specialty. Very friendly and helpful service and a fairly priced and diverse menu make this... More

Normally people say that you should give restaurants in prime position a wide berth because the privilege makes them lazy. Zu is the exception that confirms the rule. Travelling around Iseo dressed like beach bums we were still welcomed into this upmarket eatery. The friendly staff tried their utmost to overcome our linguistic impairment and explain things in English. Tasty... More

We visited here with friends that have a summer home in the lake. We were lucky enough to be town during the Cristo exhibition. We enjoyed the 5 course Cristo themed meal and it was unbelievable '. The freshness of every ingredient could be tasted. This is the place to come if you're a seafood lover. The homemade pastas were... More

Ristorante Zu was one to us. A true gem. Beautifully located with a great view over the lake. We came biking on a lazy 65k trip around the Iseo lake. Zu was perfectly timed for our lunch. After a warm, smiling welcome from the staff, they took our order for tortelloni and ravioli. The serving started, however, with their signature... More

I went to the Zu Restaurant with my wife and my friends John and Marisa from New York on June 28th. We had the Christo's special menu. Perfect quantities, supreme flavors, great wine. As always it was worth the price.

Having spotted Zu when driving around we thought it looked a lovely spot and decided to go back there to eat. On arrival we were very impressed, it is smart place with excellent views from the large terrace overlooking lake Iseo, the staff were friendly and the few clientele were very well dressed, it is obviously considered a special place...

This was my second visit to Ristorante Zu and the food was even better than before. The octopus appetizer was the most tender that I've eaten, followed by a fantastic lake trout in a simple finish.

A fish restaurant with interesting starters and a well cooked and presented Risotto with fish. Good views across the lake. Very busy. Make reservation. Did not suit us.

We were cruising around the Lago d'Iseo and noticed this restaurant on the edge of Riva di Solto. We were suprised to have an almost Michelen star quality restaurant in a small place like this. Fantastic food, unusual combinations, well presented, good and well trained staff and the views. What else should one wish for a lazy Monday holiday lunch.... More
