First of all this was the only ristorante on the island, so it was a bit over priced. The food was good, but you would probably find better off the island and in San Giulio. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed trying it...More

Take the restaurant water taxi over to Ristorante San Giulio on San Giulio Island maybe a 1000 meters from the Piazza. Boat ride takes less than 10 minutes. Beautiful little island that is 120% developed but just gorgeous. A church and monastery are the primary...More

A great place for lunch when on the island. We had great service and enjoyed caprese salad and cantaloupe with ham. Take a break when on the island. Great view back to the mainland while you are there.

This restaurant is the only place to eat on the beautiful, tiny island~Isola San Giulio. It's name is "Ristoro S. Giulio" and if you intend to go, making a lunch reservation is quite advisable. When you enter the place, you may be a bit confused...More

We spent 15 minutes just to get a menu which I finally took by myself. The waiters were ok, but overwhelmed. The food was nothing special, like a cantine. Even if we ordered the house menu, we had to wait too much for everything. We...More
