It was akin to old cruise line food. Our main two courses were clearly cooked several hours earlier and re-heated. Both were fish. They served the worst gnocchi I've ever had in Italy, and perhaps ever had anywhere; it was drowning in this poor cream...More

Today marked the single worst service I've ever experienced, bar none. I really don't have the words to describe what happened. Basically, the "gentleman" taking our order began yelling at us that (he thought) we weren't ordering enough food. Nicole ended up yelling back, and...More

To return to the Leon D"Oro is worthy of the trip to Northern Italy alone. The setting is magical with the mountains surrounding and forming an amphitheatre around the lake. The welcome is like coming back to visit old friends......but as usual it is the...More

Since we were, unfortunately, staying in a hotel that didn't "do" Italian cuisine - the Leon D'Oro proved to be an excellent lunch stop. Excellent food, great location and generally good service - although it would be even better if "granny" could manage the occasional...More

Food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Staff were really friendly and the view across the lake was very picturesque. I would definitely go here again.

The restaursnt/hotel is right by the lake looking out at the island. The food was average and the wine by the glass was disappointing and overpriced. Giving it 4 stars because of the location. Don’t miss visiting this wonderful town.
