Recommended to us by the owners of our accommodation. The restaurant has fantastic views of the lake and many of the diners were clearly residents in the hotel. The ambiance is quite formal, and the large number of staff a little over-attentive at times. That...More

Location is superb, closer to the lake having dinner you can't get. Wine card is containing full choice of superb wines. Dining is a pleasure. Not only because of the choice, but also because of the possibility to ask dishes not presented on the menu....More

One could not ask for a better view. The winemenu was well selected and a combination of local and italian wines from other districts. The staff was attentive, knowledgable and kind. The food was ... well, it did not match the expectations. The scampi tasted...More

The hotel restaurant is worth a few visits. The food is wonderful and the staff is extremely competent and friendly. Exept on a Saturday evening, unfortunately. Too full, too busy and too many small misshaps. We will definitely dine here again, but not on a...More

The restaurant, with its fine indoor and outdoor terraces directly overlooking the lake, is known for its regional and creative cuisine, its well-stocked cellar with over 450 labels and the friendly professional courtesy of the young well qualified staff. In summer the gazebo and tables outside, cleverly decorated with flowers and candles make for a cosy romantic atmosphere, special moments where style and taste are a byword. Our philosophy is to be found in our quest for the finest raw materials, their transformation with absolute respect for its essence and integrity, following the finest of Piedmontese traditions while introducing at the same time our characteristic creativity.
