With friends, we ate lunch at Elvezia on a sunny Saturday and the experience was really 'quite special'. The food, service and environment were all nothing short of excellent - stunning views across the lake to the mainland, wonderful fresh food (especially fish) and friendly and attentive staff. As the season progresses, I'd recommend pre-booking so that you are seated... More

We chose this restaurant because of the beautiful setting, but the food did not disappoint us. We wanted a light lunch so all chose the prawn salad. The salad was delicious and deceptively filling with very generous servings of prawns and cheese. The waiter was attentive and readily supplied more bread, and offered some fish for us to share -...

Setting is prime, and place offers good selection of drinks and dishes. Owner is multilingual well travelled man who is very friendly and can carry the conversation in your language. Lunch there was very good and pricing reasonable for the touristy place.

We had lunch here on our visit. The food was very good, above the usual tourist menu and the view from the upstairs balcony was lovely.

With the exception of the barman who helped a lot every time I went to see him, the service at the terrace is very very slow, if u're even lucky someone shows up.

I ordered a fried fish appetizer, which I think was sardines. Did not ask...did not care...it was excellent. Wife ordered white fish, breaded and fried...perfectly cooked and she loved... More

Visit this establishment for lunch, but be smart and arrive just as most Italians finish (i.e. 01:30 PM). Apetizerdisch with meats and cheeses was perfect (one dish will hapily serve two persons). The dish with trout (which is actually char) is also very good. Had a very good linguine con vongole as well. White housewine was ok, but not spectecular.... More
