Absolutely beautiful spot, right on the lake. Very relaxed and peaceful. Staff were courteous and pleasant with some English spoken. The food and drinks are not too expensive, compared with some places in Switzerland and you can go for a lovely wander along the lake when you have finished

The homemade lasagne here is one of the best I've had. And amazingly, the ravioli with fish was even better. Wine list had some excellent choices. Outdoor setting on the lake is wonderful. The almond cake for dessert was outstanding. This restaurant is well-worth paying in CHF..

Very welcoming staff, great service and delicious food - ate here at least 10 times during a great fortnight in Brissago. Calzone is delicious, Frito Misto excellent and slow cooked beef with mushroom risotto is out of this world. PS try the Erdinger beer - delicious but quite potent!

We reserved a table short notice, which was no problem. The location is out of this world, directly on the lake, quiet. We had the Penne all'arrabiata, the homemade lasagne and the pizza with eggplant and breadcrumbs (Paniermehl). All our meals were fantastic. The pizza was especially great. Service was very friendly and quick. We came here just for lunch... More

The location is very nice as it is by the lake and it is also relatively lively, which we liked. Service was okay, nothing special. The food was average, we've had way better pizza in that region. It is very expensive for what you get compared to other (better) restaurants. Because of this, we wouldn't go back.

On our first night in Brissago we checked a few menus and ended up at the Gabietta. We sat outside with superb views and enjoyed a very good dinner. Service was excellent and the waiter's English was far superior to our Italian. We were under an awning so able to stay outside during a shower. Two nights later we returned... More

We accidentally found this great place with fast service and breathtaking views. The Gabietta is highly recommended by us, even our son Jacob who normally refuses to eat loved the chicken nuggets.

No Michelin stars here but good Italian food and reasonable prices with a Great Lake view and great service. Can go every day without getting bored as the menu is large.
