We all had the excellent duetto di pasta. Two different kinds of freshly homemade ravioli. One with scallop shells and the other with dried tomatoes and mozzarella. Very delicate. We were in a huge hurry and ask if it was possible to be served already...More

What not to love! Lovely table close to the river, beautiful view and a wonderful plate of pasta. The spaghetti alle Vongole and the spaghetti all'inchiostro di seppie are soooo delicious! Nice and relaxing lunch break in the stunning town of Thun!

Staff running around like headless chickens and when the food arrived – drumroll – the dish-of-the-day 'fresh clams' pasta didn't seem all that fresh and the 'home made' ravioli tasted straight out of a packet. Small, rather expensive portions. Paid the bill and no arrivederci.

On both occassions, both food and service were excellent. One of the dishes, spaguetti with mussels was amongst the best I have eaten. Besides this, its location couldn't be better!

My friends and I visited Thum and were very happy we chose this restaurant. Of course the location is spectacular, but there are several restaurants on the water. But the fact that the owner of this Venice style Italian restaurant actually comes from this area...More

Lovely location on the banks of the river. The food was very nice and the service very friendly but the restaurant and the wine prices are high (or maybe just typical of Switzerland?)
