Description
Our restaurant "Il Refino" comes from the experience and passion of Michele Bordiga, who has decided to propose with dedication and enthusiasm its cuisine in an intimate and informal setting characterized by attention to detail. Il Refino is surrounded by greenery and nature, overlooking the waters of the rivers Caffaro and Chiese who meet to flow into the enchanting Lake Idro. Our dishes comes from the products and our attention to the ingredients is a distinctive feature of all the different kind of plates we offer. Our aim is to offer our guests an unforgettable food experience. Lake Idro, the Valley of Chiese and the Caffaro, the mountains, thanks to the utmost care in protecting the territory, is the perfect place to find the highest quality products: fish, meat, fruit and vegetables and dairy products, flour. The products used in our kitchen come from a meticulous selection of suppliers for the most part represented by small local producers respecting the land and its traditions. Transparency, professionalism, study, research, sensitivity and critical thinking are the basic ingredients of all our dishes.
