we came here on the 2nd night of our trip after stumbling across it near our hotel. Fantastic food and service as we enjoyed a traditional antipasti board followed by the suckling pig. some good recommendations on the red wine and free limoncello and prosecco.. cant be too bad. we recommended to another couple and they loved it.

I was very,very impressed with this restaurant. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The service was highly professional, the staff was very efficient. We was offered complimentary drinks, snacks and desserts, which was a lovely unexpected touch. I would highly recommend this restaurant, the dining experience was the best I have received on my visit to the Lake.

We enjoyed an excellent meal, with good local wine and expert, friendly service. It was a charming touch to have a complimentary glass of prosecco to start and of limoncello to finish. Our request for tap water was politely declined, the proprietor explaining that in Italy only bottled water was served. We were unconvinced, since none of the other restaurants... More

We did not make a reservation but managed to squeeze into a busy restaurant. Good decision as the food was plentiful and tasty, at reasonable cost. Definitely worth a visit if in town

Discriminating staff.. they normally serve prosecco however we had to ask for it because they served it to our next table who ordered more food than us. we ordered pizza and it was the worst pizza we ate in Italy. Our fingers almost got broken while cutting the slices. Very little ingredients in pizza and does not worth the money... More
