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.

We asked to be seated upstairs and sure glad we did...amazing view outside seating. Picked this place based on TA reviews, and the place did not disappoint. Great service as well. 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

The pasta was freshly made and all other ingrediences were fresh and very tasty. They offer several of local wines and a brilliant view across the lake towards the... More

There are only a few restaurants in Isla Bella. In fact there is a wider variety in Isola Superiore. But this place offers what you should expect: nice view in the upper terrace and good food at a reasonable price.
