Our hotel La Locanda recommended this restaurant and we were very pleased. All of the staff and Angelino are helpful and friendly. Simple good food. The home made ravioli and lake perch are very good.

We went here for dinner and it was great. Really good service and the food was divine. The aubergine stuffed ravioli was delicious and a very creative vegetarian dish. The location is amazing - right on the edge of the lake.

Tables were made up really nicely but menu was limited. The sandwiches were tasty enough but basic and no sides (crisps or salad) came with them. The waiter was nice enough. We asked for a lemonade but it didn’t make it onto the order for...More
