I wasn't sure whether to give it 3 or 4 *, in the end I went for 4 as the waitress was really friendly and helpful. The view over the lake is a little hindered by the proximity to the boat terminal but it's pretty...More

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.

This is helpfully located next to the cable car, and also the ferry to the Isola Bella, with great views over the lake. But the food is quite forgettable - the seafood spaghetti was overcooked and rubbery. Service was quite brusque as well, and combined...More

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.

I recommend the T-Bone steak for two to share. Started off by the chef but finished at you table by yourself so you can get the exact timing you like. The flavour is wonderful. We were recommended this place as we wanted to watch the...More

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
