Came here with family for Lunch. The service was slow...very slow. The antipasto was very good, with a nice selection of cured meats, bread and salad. We had pasta as a main and while it was decent, I found it a bit underwhelming.

We've had a great evening here. The staff was very helpful and friendly as our Italien is not very good and we received great recommendation for the menu. The food was delicious and the steak was really tender and perfectly cooked. The sizes of the meals is great. We've had a pasta with goat cheese which was also great and... More

Recommended by the hotel staff and they couldn't have done better. Set in nice location on a small piazza, I sat outside under a covered terrace. Bread and salami was offered, which was tasty. I went for the tagliata piedmontaise con rucola - slices of perfectly cooked steak on a bed of rocket. the steak was seared, but at the... More

They have a lovely terrace, and the gnocchi was incredible. We spent more than a week in Italy, and this was undoubtedly our best meal. I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars, because I didn't like the dessert (the panna cotta), but everything else was great!

you'll have to look for this Piazza, but the restaurant is worth it! Situated in the historic centre of Intra, this place offers a nice terrace and a cosy interior. Fantastic winelist and great dishes; Try the Vitello tonnato and the Tuna fish salad for instance. Closes at 14.30 for lunch. Reopens for dinner.

We tucked into this cozy restaurant close to lunch time because of a sudden rain shower. The idea was to enjoy a quick glass of wine until the storm blew over. We ended up staying for lunch and we're sure glad we did! We enjoyed a tasty assortment of 'salumi', fresh pasta with artichokes, perfectly-prepared 'tagliata' and a luscious tiramisu.... More

Lovely restaurant comes to life in the evening once all the lights are on. Service was good as as all the menu was in Italian we had a lovely waiter explain some of the meals. Wine was exceptional and price wise average for Italy. Defiantly recommend a visit
