This restaurant has a nice view on Lago Maggiore. Situated at the stopping site of the local ferry. You can sit very well outside. They serve nice local food for low prices. You can drink a nice coffee. Perfect place for lunch. Very adequate people.

Only had coffee and a jam croissants (so can not comment on anything else) but both was great for a bargain price. The setting by the water is beautiful, good music. Place is well worth a visit.

This restaurant is located by the ferry stop in this small lakeside village. The views are great and sitting in sunshine with wonderful fresh Italian food is great. Staff were good and I would highly recommend a stop off here.

What a restaurant! Always open, very nice people, extraordinary view on the lake. The perfect spot. Do not go there for the food, but trust me, you will have a wonderful time. No tourists, only Italians!

This is a pleasant modern cafe (not really a restaurant, no cooked food) by the jetty on the shores of Lake Maggiore. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, the food good and not expensive and the setting idyllic.
